Welcome to CompuZine, our new Compucon Newsletter!

We are proud to present the first edition of our monthly informative brochure in the form of this newsletter, whose purpose will be to highlight new product developments and releases from Compucon as well as review useful information important to those working in the embroidery field.

After all, being in the same industry, we all do have common goals – to serve and promote the use of embroidery and to communicate the knowledge that we have available. It only makes sense that the more information we have available the better each of us: machinery and software producers, professional digitizers, embroiderers, home sewers, can understand the embroidery market’s needs, educate each other and expand the demand for each of our products.

With these points in mind, we would like to add our small contribution to publish and circulate important and reliable information in the form of this Newsletter.

Through CompuZine, Compucon will provide all the news and insights related to our company and product offering as well as offer useful information and articles related to digitizing and the embroidery software industry in general. Welcome to our Newsletter, we hope you enjoy reading it!

by Melinda Dement

‘So. You either have, or are considering a venture into the world of embroidery. You want to digitize. Maybe you are wondering if it is "for you". Only you can determine if it is something that you would enjoy. Chances are that if you are imaginative or artistic, then you will have the drive to learn the necessary skills required. Is it easy? Is learning a new language a "breeze"? Can you follow a color-by-number painting? Well, everything is "relative", is it not? Perhaps the old cliché "where there’s a will, there’s a way" applies here.’ go to article
