How do I find sources for machine embroidery designs from other countries?

prefer free downloads

Dover Clip art series of books & CD-ROMs. They are Royalty Free. You might need to work on the clip art in a Graphics Program to get it ready for autodigitizing. The black & white Dover CD ROM clip art works best since their color clipart has too many dithered colors. Dover has the biggest collection of clipart for embroidery & foreign art.

The Dover Books (without CDs) are inexpensive. You could scan them.

Free Downloads sometimes are Roayalty Free. Check to see if you can resell the digitized designs from the free downloads. Upon going on these graphic free sites, just be careful of POPUPs. Sometimes they also give your PC pests– Depends on the sites.

I have a free site from Australia that I heard about from Stitches, an Australian Sewing Magazine from www.ericas.com. "LaceFairy" has free clip art that is for non-commercial use. Maybe from that site you can find some others.

It is the big Graphic sites that the POPUPs & adware are problems. The Lacefairy site seemed ok.
