Pointcarre Pro Weave

People often ask what software I use to create my weavings. I use Pointcarre Pro Weave, which is a professional program used for the creation and development of almost any technical Dobby & Jacquard fabric. Cloth can be created from my ideas and designs, or developed from a scan or other digital image, then I can edit colors, edit the design, work in Layers, and export the design as a PSD file and easily match colors to PantoneĀ® Textile Libraries. I can then save or export the file as a TIFF, TGA, BMP, PSD, PNG, and JPEG to send it directly to my printer or if I was in a production studio, I could send the file to a mill for production. Pointcarre is native software on Mac and PC.
