Cross Stitcher is a versatile program, capable of fast-and-easy designing with the Wizard in Windows or the Assistant in Mac.

Create QuickCross Design steps you through the process of turning art into cross stitches.
Load Picture for New Cross Stitch Design helps you find and optimize art to use as a background in the Cross Stitcher window, so you can use the tools from the Create tab ( in the Control Panel in Mac) to add different styles of stitches such as crosses, outlines, Lettering, or French knots.
Load Existing Cross Stitch Design helps you browse to working file types saved as a .krz format, so you can rework or finish projects.
Start a New Cross Stitch Design with No Picture lets you open an empty hoop with a pre-sized grid, so you can design your own unique Cross Stitch masterpieces.
This month, let’s use the Create QuickCross Design feature to quickly transform art into seasonal or holiday designs, or any other project your heart desires!
When you select Create QuickCross Design, and click Next (Windows) or Continue (Mac), you can choose whether you want to open an existing image (Load a Picture in Windows or Select File in Mac), or design an entirely new image in Draw & Paint with Create New Picture .
When you select Load a Picture/Select File, and then look through the images available in the Samples folder, under Digitizing and Pics, several of these images are seasonal, and several others will make charming embroideries!
If you want to design a special Valentine greeting, select the heart (1CeC003.png), and load it into the preview! You can also get ahead of the game with the Shamrock (Icho005.png) for St. Patrick’s day. Or choose any of the other picture folders in the Samples or other clip art, to customize a cross stitch embroidery for your next project.
You can Rotate and Crop the image as needed or desired.
Next, set up the Cross Size, and establish how many grid squares with Width and Height in crosses.
The Wizard/Assistant will match thread colors for you automatically.
You can adjust the number of colors used, or select and delete one or more thread colors, then Apply to update the preview.
And the Preview page lets you review how many stitches, height and width, and how many threads are used, so you can step back in the Wizard/Assistant and make additional changes before you finalize your cross stitch design!
