Hatch Composer is the perfect choice of software for those who desire to be highly creative without learning the art of digitizing. Create your own unique designs quickly and easily by editing and customizing everything to your individual style with professional monogramming, lettering and more. With auto-digitizing, multi-hooping, reshaping, design object editing, vector file support and more, you have an exponential amount of creative control.
With Composer V3 and its new improvements, there is even more you can do. Use new features like Laydown tool, Keyboard Design Collection, Center All, Hints Docker, Sequence Docker, sample designs & artwork, and so much more to create a library of fabulous projects.
NEW Laydown Stitch
The Laydown Stitch feature will automatically create a light fill to flatten the nap of textured fabrics like terry toweling and fur. This is to prevent the stitches from getting lost in the nap of the fabric, so you can achieve clean, visible embroidery.
This tool also includes a stitch type with the option of one or two layers with adjustable stitching length, angles and spacing.
LIMITED USE* Keyboard Design Collection
In the Lettering tab of Composer V3, a new Keyboard Design Collection category has been added, along with pre-mapped keyboard design collections for immediate use.
*Mapping of other purchased designs is available in Digitizer.
NEW Digitized Fonts
Create distinctive designs with 2 new digitized fonts and 5 Japanese fonts. They were created professionally to provide the highest quality lettering, now with lettering enhancements.
Plus, 10 new Tatami patterns and 6 quilt labels have also been added!
NEW Center All Feature
Hatch Embroidery automatically centres your design in the hoop by default. With the new manual option, you can lock the hoop position which means it won't automatically centre while you are digitizing.
Updated Multi-position Hoops
You can set multiple hoops, split the design into sewing fields and output the design to multiple files, each with just 1 click. Hoopings can be viewed before you finish to save time and get the perfect result. Digital placement markers can be added for perfect hoop positioning.
Hatch 3 now supports all known Brother and Babylock multi-position hoops, as well as the ability to split files into separate hoopings. Hoops include:
- 100mm x 172mm
- 130mm x 300mm
- 360mm x 360mm
UPDATED Fills & Motifs

All monogram templates have also been updated with the same background colour.
UPDATED Sample & Alphabet Designs

UPDATED Sequence Docker
The sequencing toolbox now combines colouring and selection in reshape mode. Sequence Docker provides an easy way to view colour blocks and individual objects in a design via the objects view, so you can rearrange them to establish the stitching order. This feature will reduce many common user errors and save hours of time.
NEW In App Hits
Learning Hatch Embroidery can take some time. From within the software, the new Hints docker is a valuable learning resource. When the docker is open (the default), whenever a feature is selected, context-sensitive help appears. Each hint provides a short feature description as well as a link to a short video. Additionally it includes a link to the Hatch Academy and a reference to the relevant topic of the user handbook.
