Embird is a modular embroidery system for home and industrial computerized embroidery. It consists of the basic Embird program, as well as other optional plug-ins.

The main advantage of the Embird software modularity is that it gives you the option of buying only those parts of the software which you really need for your work, while leaving you the opportunity to expand in the future. As your business grows, you can buy more and more plug-ins whenever you feel they are necessary for your work.
