All Inspirations software programs will have the free update on Monday, May 6. If a feature is standard in that software module (My Block Piecer, My Quilt Embellisher, Word Art in Stitches, etc), then it will be updated on Monday. This software gets easier and easier to use! It’s like the developers know exactly what we want before we do! Enjoy your free updates!
