PE design Plus 2 is compatible with a huge number of embroidery machine formats, you can take your family photos and turn them into thread art instantly.

Advanced, user-friendly graphical interface makes using PE Design Plus 2 as intuitive as using most popular computer-based programs:

  • Quickly identify program functions with intuitive icons
  • Customize favorite operations on the toolbar
  • Watch it sew on screen with the sewing simulator
  • Edit your embroidery while viewing a realistic image of it


New functions make PE Design Plus 2 even more powerful, lets have a look at some of the additions over its predecessor:

This has been a much asked for function, now it is possible to import vector images. Additional hoops have been added including border hoops and the popular 100 x 300mm size. The software can now work with multi-position hoops like the 130 x 300mm and 100 x 172mm sizes. As well as regular font Brother have added 5 small fonts to personalize your projects, each can be manipulated in a range of arcs, now 3 extra font shaping tools have been added. 

I think the most welcome new function of me would be the ability to manually digitize designs, new digitizing tools are available to allow creating a design my hand using line and curve options. Plus the software will automatically remove overlap, and individual sections of a design can be highlighted and edited and needed, its pretty exciting stuff for this entry level priced embroidery software.

Where the old software had basic automatic digitizing function built in, this PE Design Plus 2 has advanced auto punch, photo stitch, cross stitch wizards, and is ready to corroborate with Scan-n-cut. 


Enjoy these exceptional design and editing features:

  • Design library, with various designs and shapes including Rectangle, Circle, Heart and Star
  • Automatically convert an photo into embroidery with the PhotoStitch
  • Auto-Punch will automatically convert a image into an embroidery
  • Cross Stitch functions
  • Design stitch count is automatically recalculated when your design is resized
  • Scale, Rotate, Flip designs
  • Create custom hoop sizes - perfect for most brands of embroidery machines
  • Organize stitch files
  • 35 fonts included
  • 287 built in embroideries included
  • Print out your design templates

The options are endless for what can be achieved using the new version 2 PED Plus software. You can download embroidery designs form the Internet in any one of the most popular embroidery machine formats, edit and add lettering until its just the way you want. Then using a USB memory stick, pop it in to your computer and save your new design in Brother embroidery machine format .pes (or Singer .xxx, Husqvarna .hus/.shv, Janome .jef/.sew, Pfaff .vip/.pcs, Bernina .pes and other universal formats dst , exp, csd)

When you ready pop the USB memory stick into any one of the newer Brother embroidery machines and stitch away. Simply save the newly created design onto a memory stick and insert it into the machine. You dont need to have the machine and the computer in the same room.

    Brought this for my husband he is still learning and so far. He only has one thing he wishes it did and that is; when viewing the designs, instead of keep opening the design, it should have a pre view screen, it may have one but he don't read instructions so will find out the hard way.
