How do I send words and text to my embroidery machine?

2

Hello. I'm new to embroidery. I just purchased the Brother 270D. I have the Amazing Box 2, and some designs I've downloaded from the internet. I'm fine with the designs and understand how they work and how to get them to the machine.

I get confused when it comes to fonts. I see fonts that you buy for $10-15. I see free fonts. However, it looks like the files are individual for each letter. How/What do I need to type words and transfer it as a pattern to my machine.

For instance, if I want to type "Happy Birthday" is there a program that will allow me to load fonts that I've purchased or downloaded for free that will stitch it and allow me to send the words "Happy Birthday" to the machine. I'm really not interested in getting into digitizing. I just want something basic that will let me type and embroider random words. I looked at Embroidery Fonts Plus, but it looks like you are limited to their fonts. Would Embroidery Magic I work or am I limited to their fonts as well?

ANY help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

You would have to send individuall letter fonts in two ways.

1) You would need a simple program that would allow you to combine the designs into the words happybirthdayy and then you could save it as a new design and then send it to the machine.

2) You would have to send the design to the machine individually and then hope you line up the fabric each time in the hoop in the correct position.

Embird basic is a program that will do that and allow you some minor modifications to a design but it is priced at $144.
You can download a demo of it and see if it will do what you want it to do here: http://embird.com/sw/embird/features.htm
There was a issue with it if you were running Windows Vista, not sure if they have fixed that issue.

I would suggest finding a Yahoo group for your machine and see if anyone else there has any other suggestions for programs they might be using to combine designs without a big expense to you

I just downloaded free fonts/software and instructions from EmbroideryDesigns.com – supposedly you can go direct from computer keyboard to your machine – haven't tried it yet. You get EFP (Embroidery Fonts Plus) software and Tutorial Guide in .pdf format (29 pages). Here's the link:
