    Our latest news about this - I spoke with Cathy on Friday and we are still looking at weeks, for a number of unrelated reasons. She also says:

    There are two options for folk who have upgraded to Big Sur and now cannot run Stitchmastery;-

    1) If a user has taken a full Time Machine backup then they can revert back to Catalina using the back up.

    2) If a user has not taken a Time Machine back up or does not want to downgrade, then instead, if they have access to an external hard drive, they can install Catalina on that and boot up Catalina from the external hard drive.

    Apple support should be able to help people with this and I am also happy to give links to reputable web sites that give details of how to do the above. This comes with the disclaimer of course that they should take a back up of their machine before making any changes, in case anything should go unexpectedly wrong, and be sure they understand the potential outcomes of making changes based on their own individual systems.

    We’re also making calendar reminders for next autumn to remind everyone to back up before upgrading their systems, assuming Apple will issue an updated system at the same time. It doesn’t mean we’ll have any better an idea of potential issues with the new system ahead of it coming out (if only!!) but at least it might help ensure everyone has a back up to rely on in the interim.
