What Is CrossMagic?
CrossMagic for Windows is a Windows based database program for cross-stitch
enthusiasts. It allows you to enter and maintain details on all your
materials (i.e. floss, beads, etc), charts and projects. It will print
reports on what materials you've run out of and need to buy again, which
charts you can make with your existing stock of floss, what floss you
need to buy to make a particular chart, inventory lists, which projects
you've completed and which are still under construction, it will even
let you enter a search text and will list all the charts you own that
pertain to that subject. You can export your data from charts, materials,
fabrics & tools, or projects to other databases (i.e. export your
data to a Palm or Pocket PC machine and take it shopping). Comes with
a complete catalogue of DMC & Anchor Embroidery Floss, Balger / Kreinik
Filament, DMC Flower Thread, Balger Ribbon, and you can add your own
material types (i.e. beads) if you want to. Evenweave conversion is catered
for, and there is comprehensive on-line help for all options. At long
last you'll be able to get your hobby organised!

What Do Other Users Think Of CrossMagic?
Below are just a few of the messages I've received about CrossMagic:
From Peg Botham:
Thank you for your swift email with the Unlock Code I wasn't expecting
it for a few more days but was thrilled it's arrived so quickly. I'm
also pleased to see the added materials list of Caron Threads, RGPB
and others. I did use a trial of the programme on my old computer a
long time ago but didn't register it. When I bought a new computer
I had no idea how to move it over now I'm glad I couldn't because it's
given me the chance to download the newer version and the updates.
I loved the programme before and know I'll enjoy using it again. I
have so much stash it's impossible to keep a track of everything but
now I can. Thank you for an amazing programme which is heaven sent
to serious stitchers like myself. I just hope I don't blow a fuse when
I log in everything I have :o)) I shall be following your instructions
on backing up the programme once the info is logged.
From Debi Gilmore:
I just wanted to thank you for your prompt reply to my order. I have
been reading your comments on the Cross Stitch forum, and was so impressed
with your dedication. It is sometimes a bit scary to order over the
internet, but you made it a smooth, quick operation.
I have both Organized Expressions and CrossMagic. CrossMagic is by
far the best Cross Stitch organizer program available. It does everything
I wish Organized Expressions did. Now that I have the full registered
version, I can suggest it to my needle working friends. Thanks again!
From Rachel Wilson:
My entire family and I thank you for creating something which has
enabled me to finally get control over the mass of floss and other
x-stitch related things that I own. Thank you!
From Donna Waybright:
Thanks for creating such a great and easy to use program. I've never
been this organized before. A very satisfied customer, Donna Waybright.
From Cindy Alexander:
You should really give CrossMagic a try, it's great. I've started
putting all of the rayon and flower threads in it, and the Mill Hill
Beads. There's even the option of listing a stash of fabric, and tools.
It's also good because when DMC or Anchor come out with new colours,
you don't need to purchase an update, you just add them in yourself.
There's an option to xreference the threads to a different brand, though
the DMC-Anchor is already done. I'm extremely happy with the program.
I had already purchased Floss Minder, and it just doesn't have the
versatility, and expandability of CrossMagic. I've found Murray to
be very helpful with the few questions I've had.
From Lisa G. Miller:
I absolutely love CrossMagic! I was so excited after downloading it
and playing with it for a while. I ran upstairs and made my husband
come down and look at it and what I could do with it - although he
was not quite as excited as I was <VBG>, he did think that it
was pretty neat. I'm really looking forward to REALLY digging into
it. Thanks so much for such a useful program - I'll be talking it up
to my xstitch buddies!
From Lisa G. Miller:
I wanted to let you know that I just received my registered version
of CrossMagic this week. What fun I've had all week getting everything
set up. You know, I've tried several different ways to organize my
charts and materials (including trying to modify a couple of different
database programs), but nothing has worked for me like your program.
It's so nice to be able to just key in some chart requirements before
taking a trip to stitching store and having a nice "to-buy" list
right in hand. I'm sure that it's cut down on duplicate buying already.
Thanks again so much!!! And please feel free to use any of my comments
in any of my messages in your quote-list (I'd be honoured). Many thanks
From Bobbi Bond:
Am looking forward to using you program. I am a cross stitch addict
and your program will in more ways than I can count keep my many, many
projects cataloged. Have already tried it out for needlepoint which
is my second love.
From Diane C. Boettcher:
Thanks again for providing a great way to organize my Xstitch stuff.
I love being able to print out lists of the floss I need. I rarely
miss buying what I need anymore.
From Dorothy Goodwin:
In the past six months I've been impressed with the comments I've
read from people using Xmagic and with your posts to users in the Crafts
Forum so decided to try it instead of setting up my own database. (Besides,
as an ex-programmer, I'm too lazy to reinvent the wheel if it's not
necessary vbg) I'm impressed with what I have seen so far.
From Cathryn Pezzotta:
I downloaded CrossMagic from the Crafts Forum Library 5. I can't begin
to tell you how excited I was to find it! I am an avid stitcher, and
also collect charts, fabric, and thread. I have been called "compulsive" about
organizing my supplies, and your program is just what I need! I have
spent hours already going through it, and I can't wait to really get
started on it.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
From Cynthia Charleville:
I just downloaded CrossMagic tonight, installed and ran it, and I
must say, I'm very impressed!
I've demo'd several programs like yours and never liked any of them.
I've even started my own database, but putting in all the floss names
and numbers for DMC and Anchor was too much. Then there are those programs
that only are set up for one brand. I LOVE how you include a cross-reference
between DMC and Anchor!
From Alison Marie Henry:
Noticed your name, and just wanted to say that I love your program, "CrossMagic".
I became a registered user, the same evening that I downloaded the
demo. I was also thrilled that you (or your associates), sent me the
manual and disks, in only 3 days. Coming from another continent, well,
that just shows how great a company "Model Systems" is. You
must have gotten out the package immediately. Thanks!
From Ursula Adler:
Congratulations on such a neat piece of software! I'm a relatively
new stitcher, but I learned to appreciate your program fast!
From Diane G. Barner:
I found CrossMagic on the Crafts forum. I am truly impressed with
it. As a stitcher I can't tell you how hard it is for me to keep my
materials in order. CrossMagic was a life saver. As soon as I realized
the potential of this software I had to have it. Thank you!
