I am fairly new to Embrodery, How Hard is the Wilcom Program, To change size of designs? Has anyone tried it. Right now I barely know what I'm doing. Is it simple? Or is there another Freesimpler

Had no problem and it is easy to use. Agree with Airyfairy be careful for not resizing too much.

Babie what would be the most in resizing?
My biggest hoop is 4x4

Welcome to Cute. I have the Wilcom and I mainly use it for rotating and mirroring designs. It is also great for changing formats. I find that resizing works fairly well but you need to be careful and not resize too much. I think rule of thumb is between 10-20% otherwise the density of stitch becomes a problem. I taught myself how to use it as it is pretty straight forward. Just a matter of trial and error. Good luck and enjoy the Cute site. Sarah.

Sarah thanks for the Advise on resizing, I want to resize 5x7 into 4x4 would that be a big problem??

When I was trying to fathom Wilcom out I found the tutorial at Cindys the easiest to follow. Near the bottom of her site.

Thank you for this Marg, although I see it is only for changing formats. Wish it would also give instructions for the other things that one can do with Wilcom.

When you are new nothing is simple.. Play around with it,it did take me awhile to get the hang of it but could be I was just use to buzzedit. You can download a free trial of buzzedit. I use them both.
Hope to see you around here at cute more. Carol

You are so right, nothing is easy at the begining. But I will continue, I just love the finished product, and can't believe i did it. !

I still am amazed at what these emb machines can do and I too just love the finished product.

Hi "Ceramickids", as "Faerynutt" has mentioned it is a very easy programme to use. There are lots of them on the internet. I'm sure someone else will come along with others for you. Love and blessings Chris

P.S. By the way welcome to this wonderful website - any question you have no matter how insignificant you may think it is, ask, as there maybe someone else who needs to know the answer to that question too.

Thank You for your Kindness !!

If all you want to do is change sizes and convert formats, it's very simple to learn and use.
