HobbyWare was founded in 1991. Our first product,
released in 1992, was a
shareware program called Cross-Stitch Designer. The
success of that product lead to the development of Pattern
Maker for cross stitch.
From 1995-1997, Pattern Maker was included along with several
other programs on the Canon Creative CD-ROM that was bundled with
many of the Canon Printers sold during that period.
In 1997 we released version 3 of Pattern Maker. In 2000, we released our Machine Embroidery version of Pattern
Maker. Our Version 4 of Pattern Maker was
released in 2002.
We feel very honored that many professional designers and
needlework publishing companies have chosen our product as the
design tool for their business. We continue to strive to
make our products exceed the needs and expectations of both
designers and hobbyists.
Although our company is very small, we strive to provide the
best product and customer support possible.
