Comment to win the the first of this month’s giveaways! Update: Congratulations to our lucky winner, Janell5!

We’re kicking off this celebratory month with a software giveaway from HUSQVARNA VIKING®. The latest 6D™ Embroidery Software will fuel your creativity. You won’t believe where it takes you! 6D™ is compatible with Windows® 8 touch-screen technology, so you can pinch, zoom, auto-scroll, select and move right on your touch-screen! The Windows® Explorer Plug-In makes it easier to manage your designs. You’ll be able to view thumbnails, open designs, and more. Use this software to embellish clothes for little ones, personalize sports bags and outerwear or monogram everything from tote bags to oxford shirts. The software is compatible with all major machine brands. Retail value: $2299.

Sash and curtains made using 6D™ Embroidery Software

Some of the top features include:

  • Life View will allow you to view your projects with real world perspective. Move and vary the angle of the embroidery in a three dimensional view
  • QuiltBlock Wizard will guide you through every choice for filling and outlining a quilt block. There are a large variety of quilting fills available. Choose from nine different quilt block shapes.
  • Multi-Part Design Saving – design parts stay separate when you save, open and copy. This feature allows individual parts of a design to be modified after saving.
  • Create your own designs with Design Creator with features including appliqué and cutwork and an easier process for tie offs and jump stitches.
  • Over 145 fonts including fonts designed specifically for Puffy Foam
  • We’d test drive our new 6D™ Embroidery Software with some classic monogramming. Preppy staples like the Pocket Shirt or men’s Stinchcomb Jacket pair perfectly with custom initials and a pair of loafers.

    For your chance to win this software, simply comment below with one item on your holiday shopping wishlist! A winner will be randomly selected Friday, December 6.

    I have a friend who has a Husqvarna so I’ll be making sure she has a very Merry Christmas if I win. I’m hoping for a serger but I wouldn’t be disappointed of a Husqvarna is under my tree.

    A nice serger would be nice. I also would like a new sewing machine since the one I have now is getting unpredictable for me. I have a Husquarna and I really like it, but it is older and needs an update.

    Oh so many things and so little money. In Croatia everything is expensive since it is imported so I dream big but buy small. A serger is on my wish list, but a simple rotary cutter is next on the shopping list. Thank you for your amazing giveaways!! I am always extra exited this time of year because of it . I never actually won anything but this could be THE year, I hope. Good luck to everyone!

    6D sounds like a perfect addition to my sewing and craft room!

    6 D would be awesome to win since this is on my list to have but most likely not for Christmas. I have my first machine on layaway to get out in couple weeks. It is 2 generations back diamond so I won’t have any software with it. I can’t afford the 6D right now this would make my year. I just lost my Dad 2 weeks ago today and Mom has been in hospital 7 times this year. It’s been long year.

    I have a couple hoops on my wish list for my machine, but the top of my list is actually the 6D Premier Software! It would save me so much money if I could digitize my own art, and I would love the creative outlet to be able to do so! I’ve enjoyed making art my entire life with acrylic paint, and only recently started my sewing and embroidery hobby which I hope to soon turn into an in-home business to help support my family. I used to work outside the home, but now I have a lil guy with special needs, and I’m able to help him much more by staying at home, but I really need to start increasing our income to help out our family more and there’s nothing I’d love more than to be able to make my art come to life through the digital art of embroidery design. It would be a creative outlet for me and a way to support my family too. I am going to be adding my journey into this field onto my blog and can’t wait to immerse myself further!

    This is awesome!!!. My husband doesn’t understand that I can’t take his image and just make and embroidery design from it. I keep telling him it takes software! I’ve never owned/tried any of the software packages, again, this is awesome even that your offering it up! Thanks so much for the chance!
