When I have an idea for a project and it calls for embroidery, the right tools make all the difference. The new Valiant is certainly the tool for the job with built-in features like a digital camera, NeedleCam, which give you a zoomed in view to aid in perfectly placing that design.

And, when I want to preview my design in different color ways, Color Visualizer shows me my options.
