CreativeStudio 7.1 and PatternCloud


CreativeStudio 7.1 and a new and improved PatternCloud website will be released the afternoon of Oct. 30, 2018. Many of the improvements and changes in 7.1 and PatternCloud have come from feedback from our users and we are excited to share these changes with you.


How to install CreativeStudio 7.1

If you are currently using CreativeStudio 7.0 and are connected to the Internet, once the new version is released, you should receive a prompt to update to CreativeStudio 7.1. If you do not receive a prompt, open CreativeStudio 7.0, click Service and select Check for Updates. Follow the instructions on the screen. If you use this new update method the Installer may stop on a message that CreativeStudio needs to close. If this happens then you will need to right click the task bar (or click Ctrl, Alt, Del), then click Task Manager, then right click CreativeStudio from the list, then pick End Task. The install will finish as normal.



If you are not using CreativeStudio 7.0, visit and click download to begin the installation process.


CreativeStudio 7.1 highlights


Manage tags & Collections: You can now sort, organize and tag your collections more simply. This feature lists all of a user’s tags and collections as well as the patterns associated with the tags and collections. This allows you to easily remove patterns from collections or make corrections to the tags and collections.


Roll Quilt Improvements: To prevent drifting in edge to edge, roll quilt now ignores movement in the X axis.


Auto Suggest: When typing in a field such as tags, previous tags are automatically suggested based on the first few letters. This allows you to easily browse potential name matches.


Drag & Drop from PatternCloud store: Now, store patterns can be dragged onto your quilt group just like any other pattern. This will allow you to easily preview the pattern. Please note, you will be unable to stitch out the patterns unless they are purchased.  In addition, store patterns can be used in any of the setups.


Show Video: The default tool strip now has a Show Video feature. This links to the online video library to assist you in your day to day quilting. You can select videos to watch to guide you through the tools and processes you are using.


Other Improvements:  The sync patterns function has been improved to sync patterns much more quickly, the order join function has been improved and the number of undo points increased.



Also on Oct. 30, 2018, Gammill will launch a redesign of its PatternCloud website complete with new and exciting features.

Pattern Management Improvements: The new PatternCloud website allows you to edit multiple matters at once. For example, you can select multiple patterns to add the same tag.


Catalog: A new print-friendly mode allows you to create and print a catalog of your patterns.

Onboard Adventures

Looking for adventure? Stand in the Jewel-shaped capsule that reveals breathtaking 360-degree views as you gently ascend 300 feet above sea level. Take part in the gravity-defying Ripcord experience that gives you the thrill and exhilaration of flying in an air machine in a safe, controlled environment.

Alaska Inside Passage

Alaska’s Inside Passage spans 500 miles of shoreline with  some of the world’s most amazing landscapes and abundant wildlife. From the comfort of the ship, enjoy 360-degree views.

Juneau, Alaska

Juneau is the largest U.S. state capital. Flanked by mountains, tundra and rainforests, it’s basically inaccessible except by air or sea. Here, you can go dog sledding over Medenhall Glacier, prospecting along old mining trails, watch for whales on a charter boat, or sample local cuisine and shopping.

Skagway, Alaska

Skagway is an outpost for thrilling Alaskan adventure. Take an old-time street car ride along bustling Broadway Street, get lost in historical reenactments, dog-sled on Laughton Glacier, raft Lynn Canal, hike through the Chilkoot trail, find local artisan paintings, carvings and more.

Endicott Arm & Dawes Glacier

One of Alaska’s lesser-known gems, Endicott Arm Fjord, marks the southern edge of Fords Terror Wilderness area. You will be amazed by the surrounding granite cliffs, mountain valleys and dozens of gushing waterfalls as you drift through its 30-mile long stretch. Standing over 600 feet tall and a half-mile wide, Dawes Glacier is known for its spectacular calving displays, which produce huge, chunky icebergs that float in area waters.

Victoria, British Columbia

One of the oldest cities in the Pacific Northwest, Victoria delivers a delightful blend of romantic British pomp and outdoor Canadian pursuits. Admire Craigdarroch Castle, bike the Galloping Good Regional Trail, explore the vivid floral displays in this “Garden City,” or walk along the boat-lined Inner Harbor, home to Victoria’s most notable landmarks.
