I have completed the reviews for SymmeToy
and Repligator 6
and will review Creative Impulse
and PCQuilt 2
next month. For those who want to see what is new in Creative Impulse
2000, there is a new guided tour on the Creative Impulse Home Page. You
can get to the tour from our
Creative Impulse Review page.
has just released its yearly upgrade. Did you know that Repligator 5
was named the Best Graphic Shareware for 1999 and was a Microsoft shareware
pick of the week last October and that Repligator 6 is even better?
I added Repligator a couple of years ago to our line because it is a
wonderful tool for the innovative quilters looking for an excellent
inspiration source. This edition of Repligator brings NEW, VERY quilterly
special effects and the options to add graduated background colors to
most of the other special effects -- a must have for the quilter who
likes color study. Take a look at the revised review and at the Repligator
FYI: If you are a previous owner of Repligator, upgrade for only $10
or purchase your first copy!
I am very excited about SymmeToy,
it is the tessellation program that I promised in my last newsletter.
It is very easy to use, produces some fantastic designs, and is very
reasonably priced. Anyone who enjoys tessellations will want to check
out the demo. SymmeToy has 8 free trial runs, so to help you maximize
each session, I have written a quick demo tutorial that is included
on the SymmeToy Review page.
FYI: Speaking of tessellation, for those of you who had trouble
accessing my How to Create Tessellations
Using Your Quilt or Graphic Software in the March Newsletter
because of the extra frames, I have revised the Tessellation article
into 3 different formats and tried to clear up the ambiguous wording
that was confusing some of you. Check out the article again and select
the format that works best for you.
This last month I had several questions about our Bubble
Jet Set line, so I wrote a new FAQ about
additional ways that the Bubble Jet Set 2000 and Bubble Jet Set Rinse
can be used by quilters. One of the hints is to use BJS 2000 to stop
the bleeding in retail fabrics and trims. We also have put together
several BJS bundle packages
with even better pricing.
UNTIL NEXT TIME
