    Default MacBook Pro and Quilting

    I recently bought a MacBook Pro and am looking for quilt designing software for it. I haven't had much luck and my PC is dying ... a little more each day. I know I can use a software program called Parallels to run Windows software on the Mac but I would like to eventually have a Windows free environment.

    Does anyone have any favorite software programs for the Mac? Quilt design or embroidery ...

    Would love to hear of one too - But I've looked high and low - can't find one. I have decades of Windows fonts (20,000+) I will be running Virtual PC or it's looking like a desktop PC on the side if nothing else. Can't afford to replace these with Apple fonts...unless I win the lotto. lol

    SIGH, well that doesn't make my morning tea all too enjoyable.

    Thanks for the comments though.

    In my continual search for software to make my Mac Book Pro the main computer for my designing I have found an embroidery software program specifically designed for Mac. Some of you may have already known about this but for newbies like me - I figure I'd pass it along.

    TruEmbroidery
    TruEmbroidery? Software for Mac - Embroidery Software

    The search continues...

    Take care

    I believe that "TruEmbroidery" is the only embroidery software designed specificaly for Mac. I use Floriani software on my HP. I asked Floriani tech if it can be used on a MacPro. Was told only with Paralles, and they would not be able to help with technical help since they do not have anyone with Mac experience. I am "inheriting" a Mac Air later this fall and will not be able to use my software. I use my HP for embroidery only, using Internet sites that I frequent and trust. No surfing for me.
