This week I gave up the battle and crossed over to the dark side. No I didn't join forces with Darth Vader, nor will I ever say "it's not really quilting if you don't do it by hand" but I did buy a PC with Windows. I am a die hard MAC fan so this was really a painful decision for me. But after just a couple of hours I am already glad I made this decision.
I run three pieces of software that require windows--I won't bore you with how I tried to get them to run smoothly on my MAC, the countless times of getting booted out, crashing, falling asleep while it was so slow,...... suffice it to say I tried for months and wasn't happy with the results in speed and fluidity.
So now my 5D Professional Software and my Quilt Design Creator software have a new home. After an initial 'test drive' of these programs in their native environment I am excited to be working with them again. They are fast and easy to use. I've already created a quilt label and 'tweaked' an embroidery design as part of my test and was so happy with them both I am going to use them. 6D will be on the market soon--think a new fall project for yourself--and I have a beautiful new home for it.
Now for the hard part--moving certain files over and re-organizing them. Sounds like a job for a laptop, an easy chair and a nice cool drink!
I will still use my TruE Embroidery software for my MAC and will always return to this for certain projects. Now I have a choice and since they all work together rather seamlessly, I truly have the best of both worlds.

I fell in love with the art of quilting in my late 40's and I haven't looked back. It opened a whole new world of creating and friendships. I never would have met the amazing women and men I've come to love and call friends without this amazing way of life.
