My husband bought me a used Brother embroidery machine. I am new to the WHOLE sewing/embroidery thing, and have tons to learn. I wanted to know if there is free software out there that will allow me to design new things to embroider? How do I go about making these things on the software and then getting it to the machine?? I'm totally confused with all this and incredibly overwhelmed! 🙁 I want to have fun!

also, I have windows vista…. does that make things harder?
also, how do i take all these free designs I see on the web, and open them once they are saved in files…. what program do I use to open .art files?? I have tried everything! Help!

There may not be free software to download to create your own designs. Vista is ok to have when purchasing your digitizing software. Brother have some easy to use programs, such as PED Lite and PE Design. But you dont have to buy 'Brother' software.
.art designs are Bernina files, and unfortunately, you cannot use them unless you have bernina branded software. Stick to downloading designs in .pes format. Embroidery is so much fun, and there is always something to do!!! I use husqvarna viking software and i find this really easy, and it does a lot! and i use this with my brother embroidery machine.
Digitizing is the process in which you get your image into 'stitch points', basically telling the needle where to go, and what direction and form the stitch needs to be. Its not easy, but if you love art, and love the computer- you'll love this!
Ask your husband if the shop/place he bought it from offers lessons, or classes on the software and machine. i'm sure they can give you tons of advice! Happy Sewing!!!!!!!

I want to embroider some fingertip towels with the initial "J" on them, but can't seem to find a font that would look good free off the internet. Anyone have some to share for free? I am also looking for some fun ones for initial "M" or a first name and a fun border…something for diaper covers and little outfits for my baby girl.
The link is great! That is the kind of response help I am looking for! I know there are freebies out there…just need some help finding them 🙂

My new problem…these are .pes files, which my embroidery machine is compatible…I just can't view them on my computer. Any suggestions on why I can't view them, or what I need to do so?

I found these in the wedding fonts and thought you might like the flower letter for your daughter
