By viewing your quizzle on your computer you can see full colour pictures, photographs and diagrams all the way through the programme, (not just a colour picture on the cover of a black and white pattern). You can choose to read and stitch from your computer, print out in full colour or print in black and white any or all parts of the instructions.
