From S & S Computing:
SewArt is software for converting clipart or other forms of raster and vector images into an embroidery file. Image processing tools and a step-by-step wizard are provided to produce an image suitable for yielding a high-quality embroidery stitch-out. It reads raster or vector format images, allows images in other (unsupported) file formats to be pasted into the SewArt workspace, converts images to high-quality embroidery files for sewing, and supports output embroidery file formats including Brother (c) *.pes, Janome (c) *.jef, and Singer (c) *.xxx (these may be converted by SewWhat-Pro, or other embroidery editors, to a much larger variety of embroidery file formats compatible with most home and commercial machines). It contains image-processing tools for converting images into color-reduced, smoothed images suitable for digitizing and includes a variety of pattern fills which can be applied to sew individual regions of the image.
