I'm considering between Masterworks III and Generations embroidery software for digitizing new designs.
I am looking for some opinions on on how both software suites work, problem areas, tips & tricks, etc.

Thanks!!!

Both products have trials that you can order. This would give you an idea of which one would be right for you.

For what it's worth, I bought the Floriani Total Control software package. Was it pricey? You bet. However, it is far and away the best product I've seen for the money. I wish I'd known about it two years ago when I began buying cheaper software thinking it would suit me. I've not touched any of the six other programs I own (including Embird, Buzz Tools, Monogram Works, PE Design, etc.) since installing the Floriani. I don't see much discussion on this board about Floriani, but I'm guessing it's because of the expense. With my purchase I received over 100 spools of their thread, lifetime upgrades, a workbook full of lessons, six rolls of stabilizer, and access to their archive of designs. Two dealers in my area offer monthly classes using the software: one charges $25 per class and the other offers them for free. Frankly, I think the one that charges has a lot of nerve!

Good to hear you're thrilled!

I'm leaning towards Floriani... but I haven't compared anything to it yet... I only have my notes from taking a Floriani class a couple of months ago.

They had a ***great*** educator. Very real and down to earth... good humor... it was an enjoyable evening.

I went to a John Deer/Babylock event this past weekend - which of course pushes Masterworks.

While putting a few bucks down on an Ellisimo Gold, I asked the shop owner (who's one heckuva nice guy!) which software he'd buy... and he leans towards the Floriani, too.
