Hello! I Need some help. My girlfriend's mom has a Brother PE 700 II machine. Which of these programs like Wilcom ES, Tajima DGML or Melco Design Studio are compatible with that machine? Or, does the PE Design the only one that work ? Thanks.

You can actually use any software that you like, personally I use Fancy Works Studio. What you will need is PED-Basic. The PED-Basic will allow the designs to be put on a memory card to be used with the machine. Personally if i were going to invest in another software program it would be embird. www.embird.com you can try it before you buy it and with the add ons you can purchase seperately it is wonderful for anything you would want to do. it really depends on what your girlfriends mom wants to do with the software. if she just wants to get designs from the internet to her machine and maybe resize or change the design a little that can be done with PED-Basic. PED=Basic can be found on e-bay for about $100.00.
if you have any other questions please feel free to e-mail me.
my favorite embroidery website is <a href="http://www.designsbysick.com/amember/go.php?r=5647&i=l0">Designs by SiCK Embroidery Library</a>
they have an awesome site with great designs.

good luck,

i'd like it to be as cheap as possible– either a computer program i can download or buy, or a service where you send or e-mail your photo in and they provide you with the pattern and a list of all the thread-colors needed, etc. all the programs i've looked at online are expensive because you can use them for as many projects as you want. i just have one project i'd like to do, so i don't want to pay for something i can use for all eternity. anybody heard of this or know where to find the service? also, anyone know the cheapest way/place to buy embroidery thread? thank you!

there is a free program called PC stitch you can dowload it and use the only thing that you cant do with it is save the project unless you buy the actual project.

as for buying threads for any projects browse around on google or any other search engine and see what it pulls up. also try looking on ebay you can get some great deals on there

My sewing machine has a lot of "built in stitches" besides monogram…I was wondering if I could use it for embroidery..
I hate to have to have a special machine for the little bit of embroidery that I would want to do…

So long as your sewing machine can do zigzag stitches, go in reverse and forward and you can set the machine with zero pressure on the pressure foot, you can make some pretty darned cool embroidery. Just so long as you're not trying to make precise stitches, as you would need for monograms.

What you need: An embroidery hoop, practice cloth, lots of thread, paper to back the design. A rough idea of what you want to do, as well as a washable drawing medium such as a chalk pencil. This works especially well on smaller, more free-form designs.

How to do it: Set the stitch for zigzag, draw the design on cloth, back with paper, set in hoop. Place under presser foot, with no pressure on foot. Go back and forth over drawing, experimenting with stitch length and bobbin tension. Caveat: doing this free-hand will not produce the smooth, professional style embroidery. More of an artisan style.

These instructions came with my sewing machine and I've used them with varying degrees of success. If you'd like more info, please just e-mail me; I'd hate to type exact instructions if you're not interested!

I have saved a design on a USB stick. When I try to open it on my machine, nothing comes up. Please let me know all the info you can! Thanks in advance.
It comes up on my computer fine, when I put the USB stick in. But when I put the USB stick in my Janome 350E embroidery machine, it does not show the design.

i haven't worked with a janome machine for several years but do you a brother. the janome will use either a jef or sew file. what is the file extension of the file you are trying to use. i belong to many yahoo embroidery groups. here are a few of them. if you join a couple i'm sure someone on there will take you by the hand. the people on these groups are great and so helpful.

I just bought an embroidery and I figured out how to write a word with the 4 printed fonts but I cannot figure out how to center it onto my fabric? It says to use embroidery sheets. Do I need to use that and what is that?

Also, for the cursive feature on #45-70, is there a way to type in the word on the machine or do I have to eyeball that with each letter? Does the cursive section only have one size?

Lastly, if I'm trying to find a free ballet, hawaiian or a different letter font on the internet to download, do you have an easy way to find it?

i have a brother machine but it is a ult2002d so i can't specifically answer your question. there are soooooo many yahoo groups dedicated to machine embroidery. i looked up a couple of the for you and there are 2 that are just for your machine. the people on these groups are wonderful and will walk you thru every step of the way. here are the links.
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Brother_se-270d/
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/brother_Disney_SE-270D_CLUB/

as far as downloading designs from the internet i'll give you a few sites
http://www.astitchahalf.com/ has a sale every week where she sells 5 different fonts for only $3.00
www.annthegran.com has all kinds of free designs
and my favorite site is
http://www.designsbysick.com/amember/go.php?r=5647&i=l0">Designs by SiCK Embroidery Library
they give away 49 free designs a day and the membership to their site is very reasonable.

these are just a few to get you started. if you have any other questions just e-mail me, i will be more than happy to help.

have fun.

my mum has an embroidery machine, i have a design i want, but do not want to submit it to a site so they can sell it. i am looking for preferably free software where i can create it myself.
thanks in advance..
or, even a site that will do it for you but give you a percentage of their profits on the design..
yes, she has the card reader on the computer so she can transfer files to the machine.
i have an image that i have created that i want to use, but do not have any software to convert it over to the right file type..
i have found sites where you can submit your image to them and they would format it for you for free, but in doing so, you give them all of the rights to the image..

www.embird.com will let you try before you buy. does your mum have a way to get the design from the computer to the machine? my favorite site for designs is <a href="http://www.designsbysick.com/amember/go.php?r=5647&i=l0">Designs by SiCK Embroidery Library</a>
you might want to take a look.
any other questions just e-mail me.
