Cochenille Design Studio has developed a program called Stitch Painter which may be used for knitting, crochet, weaving, tapestry, ikat, canvas work, counted cross stitch, and other forms of stitchery.

Stitch Painter is a grid-oriented paint program created for craftspeople and textile artists who design on graphs. It is simple to use, yet very powerful. The artist has full design control over the grid dimensions, palette (color, symbol or texture), repeat size and brush manipulations.

Take a motif from any of our CDs. Import into Stitch Painter and make into grids. The Full Color import Module will reduce the design to whatever number of colors you desire to use. Print out the grid. Tape together tiled pieces if needed. Start stitching.
