iPatternStudio is being discontinued.
It has been an incredible journey since I first though of the idea of a pattern management software. The software has been an amazing success, revolutionizing the way digital patterns are organized and sold to the quilting industry. Earlier this year I realized that a single developer could no longer serve the needs of the large customer base. I was approached by a 3rd party company who was interested in acquiring the technology I developed. This company is an industry leader in quilting and it is now the owner of the entire project. The plans and work that has taken place in 2016 and that will continue into 2017 is now out of my hands, and in theirs. I am excited about where they are taking the technology.
I want to thank all those that supported this software and who have purchased it over the years. I will be releasing a final 'end-of-life' version soon. This will remove the online features (the keywords, online store, and quilting machine registration) from the software. Once this is released, there will be no more releases. I am not abandoning my users whole sale. The final version will function for several years to come as a stand alone pattern organizer. Also, it will remove the lockouts and any communication with our servers. This will allow the iPatternStudio users to continue to take advantage of the many desktop features for as long as present operating systems allow.
Thank you and have fun quilting!

iPatternStudio updates are released periodically. They address fixes and add new features. Here are the two ways for getting updates:
1) Within iPatternStudio Desktop:
If your computer has internet connection, then running the auto-updater is the easiest method for updating iPatternStudio. During installation you can specify to automatically check for updates each time you start iPatternStudio. You can turn this auto-updater on in the program preferences. Otherwise you can update by: (APPLE USERS) Go to the iPatternStudio application menu and select 'Check For Updates'. (WINDOWS USERS) Go to the Help menu and click 'Check For Updates'.
2) Manual Update OR For New Purchases
For computers that are not connected to the internet, you will need to download the new program installer, copy it to your off-line computer, and install it over the existing install.
Once downloaded, copy the installer to a USB Flash Drive, eject the drive.
Then plug the USB Flash Drive into your offline computer, and run the correct installer.
