    Using Simply Applique with Brother ScanNCut
    I used Simply Applique software that I bought from to create a machine embroidery applique from an image I found on Google. As promised, font is Follow Directions. Applique Properties I changed are: Width 3.8, Inset 85.0, Tackdown Offset -1.8. All other setting stay as default. Be sure to use your scraps to test! Becky Thompson, Power Tools with Thread.

    Tutorial - Simply Applique Software and Multi-Layer Designs
    In this tutorial, I show you how to create multi-layered designs in #SimplyApplique. You can get this software at #allbrands NOTE: For the blanket stitch option, you may want to change the distance for the tack down stitch to 0 or 0.25 so you don't get a double line under the final stitch. You do not need to change this setting if you are doing as satin stitch as the satin stitch covers the tack down stitch.

Here's what they were saying about the Simply Applique download. I'm happy to re-word the instructions with screen shots for you. Also, this software will NOT work on a Google Chrome Book. Charlene Arthur Hockenberry January 18 at 11:39 AM · So frustrated and sad that I can't get Simply Applique to download. I was so very excited to be able to do things like Becky does.

Does Simply Applique work with ScanNCut?
Simply Applique needs a Windows operating system to work and it will also work on a Mac with Parallels and a Windows OS installed. Simply Applique doesn't "work with the SNC". It works on the computer or laptop (not a tablet or phone) as an independent software application and it uses the .fcm file created by the SNC to then make the embroidery applique files. It will save to all formats for all home embroidery machines. All models of the SNC, regardless of whether they are the older CM models or the SDX models create the .fcm file which can then be imported into Simply Applique on the user's computer.

I purchased the Brother Simply Applique system from All Brands; I had issues getting it activated but Barbara helped and it was able to get the issue resolved quickly once we went through the steps.

Excellent service, download only because I am in UK.

The service I received was outstanding from both Giselle and Barbara. As I live in Australia I only wanted the download of Simply Applique. However, I did have some trouble navigating the website to find the download only. Hence my phone call. Thank you to Barbara and Giselle for rectifying the situation. Diane Valese
