Bead-N-Stitch is amazing! I have been working with the program for about a week now, “WOW”! I do a lot of bead work and cross stitch designs. Having this program is making it so much easier. I can design for both at the same time instead of having to do 2 different programs to work on 1 pattern. I absolutely love the “Color Map”. It is one of the best things to have. When I cross stitch or bead I find it easier to identify the different colors or stitches one group at a time. Exporting the pattern with the Color Map gives me each color on its own page, I am tickled pink about it. The only thing else that I would love to have is a manual, but I’m told it is in the works. The big question is would I recommend this program? The answer is YES!

I have been beading for probably 15 years. Bead Creator was my first beading program with which I created hundreds of patterns and made small simple patterns to very large hard patterns.
I have had this software (Bead-n-Stitch) for a couple of weeks. Bead-n-Stitch has a lot of versatility. There seems to be no limit in the making of patterns and designs. The implementation of diverse pallets and types of beads used is super. The designers seem to have implemented everything that will help you produce the type of design you would like to make. From simple to complex designs you will enjoy Bead-n-Stitch.
I had great communication with the developer when there have been new program updates and information help use the program. Bead-n-Stitch is a great buy.
Concerns: I did have difficulty with the tutorials. Not very page of the tutorial is in English. Most Translated and had great examples in the tutorials. The program closed with a pop up window that was in Russian except for 2 words in English. I think that if there were more tutorials explaining step by step processes would be awesome. I learn better when there are step by step instructions when learning new programs.
(NOTE: The 400-page fully illustrated User Guide is being translated from Russian and will go to all users. A Quick Start tutorial using still command window images with explanatory text is also being developed.)
