The bonuses were instrumental. I am a very satisfied customer of the Hatch Software purchased through Embroidery Legacy.  The purchase and installation process was very easy.  The support and educational products are excellent.  I feel that I can continue to progress as I learn more about digitizing.

Unlike some of the other embroidery software trials out there, there are NO limitations to the free 30 day Hatch trial. The trial version of Hatch DOES allow you to save and stitch out your designs. In our opinion, the only way to truly see the quality of any embroidery software is to test stitch outs.

There are 4 levels of the Hatch software. The level of Hatch you’ll need really depends on what you’d like the software for. For example: If you only want to add custom lettering around designs or do monogramming you’ll only need Hatch Personalizer. Or if you’d like to create your own embroidery designs, you’ll need Hatch Digitizer. To view a chart explaining which features are included with each level of Hatch Click Here.

Although Hatch is not a native Mac program, as with other PC programs, you can use Hatch with a Mac provided you use Bootcamp (built into Mac) or purchase a program to run Windows in Mac called Parallels. You will need both a copy of Windows as well as a copy of Parallels. Please visit Apple’s website or the Parallels website to get any further information and support for running Windows on a Mac.

Hatch does not require a dongle to run. It’s a downloadable product which can be used on multiple computers. This is an advantage over other programs which require dongles as you do not need to repurchase the program if a dongle is lost.

Yes. You can be signed into a maximum of 2 devices but can use Hatch software on 1 device at a time only.

You can install Hatch on as many computers as you like, but only have an active license on 2 computers and only run Hatch on one computer at a time. Hatch is a single-user license. You may run the software offline but must be connected at least one time every 30 days. If not, the software will ask you to sign in while online to check for updates, etc.

If you are using Hatch on one computer and want to use it on a different computer, you have these options:

Option 1:

  • If you are running on computer 1 and want to run on computer 2:
  • On computer 1 > click File Menu > sign out and release license while online.
  • Then sign into computer 2, while online.

Option 2:

  • If you are running on computer 1 and want to run on computer 2.
  • Sign in to computer 2 and it will automatically disable the license on computer 1 for you.
  • Don’t worry if you had any designs open and working on them on computer 1, the software will allow you to save them.
