There are two types of people when it comes to starting out with a brand new software. Some treat it as a new exciting adventure and throw themselves at it with all they have, while others might find the experience a little daunting and take things a little slower. No matter which type you are, we can reassure you, there are many ways to find information on Hatch Embroidery within the software and online.

You can also get in touch and ask us for support. Great customer service is what we pride ourselves in and are famous for. It is comforting to know that you are by no means on your own!

As the perfect starting point, we created a series called "Getting Started" in the Hatch Academy to help dip your toes into the water and get you comfortable.

So, how can you find out more about the different tools and features found in Hatch Embroidery or get help and support? Here is a guide to making learning easier and to help you create great designs even faster!
