We hope everyone had a fun and relaxing 4th of July weekend. We’re glad North Carolina escaped any serious damage from the first hurricane of the season, Arthur (Arthur is a popular Stahl family name so we all were especially glad that the damage was minimal). Heading into the weekend, I had a chance to pick up the latest issue of Stitches Magazine. If you are considering purchasing software in the near future, make sure you take a look at Stitches Magazine July 2014 issue. This informative Software Guide will help you decide on which software best meets your production and business management needs. On page 56, you can read a short review on our free, online art creation software, Cadworxlive.com. This guide reviews all types of software related to running a garment decorating business, from shop automation to digitizing to custom art creation to business management. It is truly a helpful publication. Thanks to everyone at Stitches who helped put this issue together. It’s not just for embroiderers–anyone who sells custom garments should read this issue. Great job!
