Thank you for purchasing Inspiration Software.
You made a wise selection! All Dime software is housed inside our Embroidery Tool Shed product. You can access each software title from within that program so there is no need to flip back and forth between different programs, they are available to you in one convenient interface. Embroidery Tool Shed is free to download. Once you’ve installed Embroidery Tool Shed (ETS), you can activate any individual software title you have purchased or demo any of our software titles for free. Design collections can be accessed in ETS but are installed outside of the Tool Shed.
