Only one more day!  Creative Studio 6.0 will be officially released and available for download and use tomorrow, January 20, 2015 at 10am CST.  We look forward to sharing the great new features and functionality of Creative Studio 6.0 with you and have a couple more that we would like to highlight before tomorrow’s release.    

 

This week, we are pleased to introduce another aspect of the new Node Mode feature in CreativeStudio 6.0.  Using Node Mode you can divide a pattern and add Designer notes to your pattern at your chosen node. If you add Designer notes CS will stop sewing at the node you designated and display your personal message. Click www.gammill.com/files/Nodes_Divide_Messages.mp4 to view a video of Paul Statler demonstrating divide and the Designer notes in the Node mode feature.

 

We are also pleased to announce this week an improvement to Edge to Edge (E2E) mode.  The Default E2E Registration is now user settable.  In the past, E2E registration defaulted to whichever method you last used and the software default value was Place Two Pins.  After much testing and review, we have determined that End of Set is the most reliable registration method and have set it as the new software default, but this default registration is also now user settable so you may change it to your personal preference.

 

Thank you for choosing to be a part of the Statler family!

This week’s CreativeStudio 6.0 feature is Apply.  Apply automatically places Point to Point (P2P) patterns following the path of another pattern.   Patterns placed using Apply will automatically connect and sew continuously.  P2P patterns also are no longer restricted to straight lines as the Apply feature will curve the P2P pattern to follow the path of your selected pattern.  Click www.gammill.com/files/Apply_Promo.mp4 to view a video of Paul Statler demonstrating the Apply feature.

This week we are pleased to introduce another aspect ofthe new Node Mode feature in CreativeStudio 6.0This useful function adds the ability to customize quilting speed and the length of the quilting stitches within specific areas of the quilting pattern.  Now small intricate parts of a quilting design can be stitched exactly as needed without slowing down your entire quilting process! The flexibility to change the speed and/or the stitches per inch automatically during quilting provides more precise control over the stitching process and your desired results.  Click here to view a video of Paul Statler demonstrating the speed and stitches per inch changes in the Node Mode feature.

This week we are happy to introduce the new Point to Point Concatenation feature in CreativeStudio 6.0This exciting feature adds the ability to place Point To Point patterns in a sequence. Point to Point Concatenation gives the ability to place patterns precisely and delivers a very custom result.  Click here to view a video of Paul Statler demonstrating the Point to Point Concatenation feature. 

In previous versions of CreativeStudio Edge To Edge patterns can be concatenated in a similar manner to Point to Point Concatenation. If you would like to learn more about this process click here for a short project and here for a video on concatenating with Edge to Edge. The first sample contains four patriotic panels from Judy Lyons from Legacy Quilting.  It makes a super simple, but impressive Edge to Edge that can be used as small wholecloth wall hanging. The second sample uses the Ride into the Sunset series from Kim Diamond of Sweet Dreams Studio.

We are excited to introduce Node Mode. This enhancement has been requested by our Statler community and will provide useful ways to manipulate patterns and fill your quilting space. Nodes are an integral part of every pattern and can be d...isplayed when needed. Every pattern is made up of segments (lines or arcs) and nodes. The beginning and ending of each segment is a node. The Node Mode will display pink Endpoint Nodes and blue Arc Nodes in a single pattern. You will find that you can move or divide pattern segments with Endpoint Nodes, while Arc Nodes will allow you to easily reshape pattern segments. Click below to view a video of Paul Statler demonstrating the Node Mode feature.
