Here is the Embroidery Cataloguer companion to SWP!

SewCat is software for cataloging embroidery files on your computer and external media (CD’s, floppy drives, etc). With SewCat you can view embroidery files in specific directories, conveniently move them into user-definable folders, and rename them in a variety of meaningful ways. All this can be done without increasing the disk space already occupied by your embroidery files.

Getting Started with SewCat

The figure below shows a typical SewCat workspace, which is divided into three work panes. The left pane is an Explorer®-style folder view of your system, including networked drives and removable drives (provided they are connected). You click the check-box next to a folder (or folders) in this pane to display icons of all the embroidery files in the middle (working) pane. In this example, the right pane contains the Virtual Catalog, consisting of folders and files that you have created and/or “moved” from the middle pane.

You may select file(s) in the middle pane with your mouse, and drag/drop them into the Virtual Catalog tree. Note that the files are not really moved around on your hard-drive this way, but are only stored in a “virtual” list making up the Virtual Catalog. In this way, very little room on your hard-drive is occupied by the Virtual Catalog. Once the Virtual Catalog is saved, it can be restored and you can easily find files according to either keywords that you assigned or by judicious choices for the folder names.  Files may be dragged and dropped from either the middle pane or the Virtual Catalog into most embroidery file editors.
