See Your Designs on Your Hard Drive

Designs in Machine Embroidery

If you’re like me (or how I used to be), you open your design folder on your computer and begin a desperate search, wasting precious minutes sifting through designs.  Wouldn’t it be wonderful if you could see a thumbnail image of your designs? Without opening each design in embroidery software?

Don’t waste anymore time searching for designs. Install Perfect Stitch Viewer on your computer and let the program work its magic in the background.  It’s not a software program you have to learn, you just install it and forget it.

You can take advantage of our special offer this week and download Perfect Stitch Viewer.  Once purchased, you’ll receive an email thanking you for your purchase.  It will look like this:

You’ll receive a second email with your activation number and a link to download the program.  It will look like the image below.  I added the red box and arrow to call out the serial number.

Click on the link and this window appears:

Click on Perfect Stitch Viewer (1) and the program will download and appear at the bottom of the screen. Double click on the download (2).

The Install Wizard will appear.

Follow the prompts to install and click Finish.

Double click the PSV icon on your desktop.

Fill out the Registration form with the serial number (case sensitive, include dashes) you received in your purchase confirmation email.  Click Register Now.

Open a design folder.  You have two options for changing your view in explorer. Click on the View tab (1) and select Large icons or click on the thumbnail icon at the lower right corner of the screen (2).

Now you see all of your designs!  It’s like magic!

Before Perfect Stitch Viewer, my neckline designs looked like this:

Now, I don’t waste any time for searching for my designs.

    How does Perfect Stitch Viewer work with designs saved on a USB? Do they have to be saved back on your computer?

    • Laurie B Albrecht

      Jean I love Perfect Stitch Viewer! To see your designs just go to whatever device you want to read like a USB or CD or whatever drive you want to search and click on the view icon. Then select the size thumbnail you want. It works perfectly.

    I bet Perfect Stitch Viewer does not work on an iMac? You would think that by this time, embroidery software creators would have made something that works nicely on Apple products. I don’t care to install any microsoft operating system on my iMac or MacBook so that is out of the question.

      Hi Pamela, If you want to install Perfect Stitch Viewer on a MAC, you have to install the MAC Translator first. The Translator is free and can be downloaded here:

        This sounds great! I have multiple machines, multiple formats used. Also more than one computer. How many computers can you install one purchased program on? Or do you purchase a Perfect Stitch program for each computer?
        My computers are Windows, but I do use a Vista in addition to Windows 10.
        I look forward to your help and this program

    Does Perfect Stitch Viewer work with Brother design software too?

    • eileenroche

      Yes, Perfect Stitch Viewer works with the files on your hard drive. It doesn’t matter what other embroidery software is installed on your computer. It’s a real game changer – and time saver!
