All About Embroidery Tool Shed

All About Embroidery Tool Shed

  • It's a free software
  • Create templates
  • Re-size
  • Copy
  • Rotate
  • Mirror
  • Merge
  • Change colors


To print a template:

  1. Open a design in Tool Shed
  2. Click the print option
  3. A crosshair is included in the template.


To save in Tool Shed:

  1. Choose file
  2. Save As
  3. Choose from the included formats (home and commercial) something every machine can read.
  4. Choose the location, such as your USB, or a folder on your computer.

Pro Tip: C2s is the native file format for Tool Shed programs, and you can use it to make changes. Save the stitch file (pes, dst, vp3) on your USB stick.

Embroidery Tool Shed is like an actual tool shed that it comes with some basic tools, and you can add new tools to it (Perfect Embroidery Pro, My Fabric Desginers, Perfect Lettering Pro), and all the new tools will be housed inside your Tool Shed.

Embroidery Tool Shed works on full operating systems (not iPad), including Windows and Mac OS.

Hi, I already had Embroidery Tool Shed from a previous event and last night I bought Perfect Stitch Viewer when I watched an event on Between Friends, it was on special at $79.99. When I try to register Perfect Stitch Viewer, the code does not appear and it does not work. What did I do wrong?

Whereis the mergebutton to insert different letters

Mildred, I'm not sure that is part of Tool Shed. But you can open the two letters in separate tabs, and then use the copy and paste feature to copy the letter from one tab and paste it next to the letter in the other tab.

I have seen "merge" under the file menu in Perfect Embroidery Pro.

I purchased a design which has two colors. I want to break the design up into four colors. Is there a way to do that in Tool Shed?

Hi Becky, great question. Adding colors (splitting existing color stops) is not something that can be done in Tool Shed.

If you wanted to merge another two color design in, you can do that, though.

Hi Mildred. I'm afraid there is no merge button. I should have said that you can copy and paste from multiple open tabs to one tab. That will get you the same results as merging, though it takes a few more steps.

I tried to download the Embroidery Tool Shed and got message from my virus protection software that there was something unsafe and not to download it. What can it be?

Hi Judy,

Thanks for reaching out to embroidery.com! I'm sorry to hear that you've ran into issues, while trying to download the Embroidery Tool Shed. There are sometimes false positives that come from Virus protector programs. This might be what is causing this problem. We've had customers who have disabled their antivirus software, so that they could download the Embroidery Tool Shed. You can try doing that, in order to download the Embroidery Tool Shed. Since it is not unsafe, and is fine to download. I have some information on how to use VirusTotal to double check your files, just to be sure they aren't infected. I will send you that information through email. Please look for an email from [email protected] Have a great weekend!

What add on tool includes auto knockdown

Please Login to comment on this post.

Kirsten S.

Hi Claude,

Thanks for the question

I believe you'll need Perfect Embroidery Pro to do something like a knock-down. To my knowledge, it's not automatic, but you have the ability to choose and edit the shapes and fill density to create your own. Here's how that works: https://www.embroidery.com/faq-diy-embossed-letter...

"Knockdown Stitches" was developed and trademarked by Embrilliance software, and their auto-knockdown is found in Embrilliance Enthusiast. https://www.embroidery.com/embrilliance-enthusiast
