The Stellaire also comes with My Design Center built in, for powerful, easy-to-use editing where you can create your own custom works of art, so there's no PC needed. You can draw straight into My Design Center using the Stellaire’s large touch screen, or import your own jpegs and turn them into embroidery. You can even pair My Design Center with My Design Snap to convert your own images into unique embroidery designs. You can ‘draw’ straight onto your fabrics, using the touchscreen to convert your designs into embroidery data.
