    Machine embroidery designs cheap!!

    http://tuckerstreasures.com/zencart/...oducts_id=3815

    I have bought designs from this site before and they stitched out beautifully. She is closing her site and is offering everything she has ever digitized for $5.50!! It's only for two more days as she is not taking any more orders after September 4 and her site closes September 11. I believe it is 8 years of designs. You can download them by collections or by themes.

    Yes, I tried to order from her. I did order and paid for my designs. I went to download them and only partial file downloaded. I tried again and nothing happened. I saw others who also had problems downloading and not getting a response back. I emailed the co and told them of my problems and said that if I didn't hear from them that day I would cancel my PayPal. I mean think about it; others have had problems and they are closing. The next thing I knew I was given a refund and banned from the site. Then she posted on Facebook that I was rude and threatening. If wanting to get what you paid for is rude and threatening the maybe she shouldn't be in this business. Then someone else chimed in by what she wrote and said people are always trying to steal so it was good for her to get rid of the stealers. How is paying and expecting your products being rude, threatening and diffently not stealing. I wouldn't buy anything from her and can see why she's going out of business and now going to giving her designs away for free on yahoo. All I wanted was my designs; she could have just reset the site so that I could have tried to download them again but she wanted to act like I was in the wrong. I don't believe I was and neither does my other embroidery/quilting friends who heard about it. Before ordering; read the other comments where people have tried and had problems.

    Wow, what a drag that this happened to you! I had no problems and thought I was passing this on to others to help them out. You're right, you were not in the wrong and should not have been treated like that.

    You did a good thing by passing this along and I'm truly happy for the ones who were able to get them without issues. I know that I wasn't the only one who had problems because I saw the emails. Such is life. You just never know how things will turn out. I've gotten so many great designs on the net that I feel in the long run I've made out. I've also gotten alot of great deals on designs when they've been on sale. I did got to Watts site and even though I'd like to have seen some of thier designs I did order the CD for the $20. They had some cute butterflies that I could see. They even tell you to let them know if you don't hear from them within 8 hrs. I also had contacted Julia's Needles after I got some designs but couldn't see how to get the alphabets because there was no link to download them. I got a nice email back telling me how to get them and it signed "Hugs" and the persons name. So for the most part there are really nice people out there that makes up for the ones who have their bad days and want to share them with others for some reason. Thank you for your post, without it I wouldn't have seen Watts and I had never heard of them before. Have a great day.

    I ordered her CD and just got my confirmation email from her. She seems nice and had written a personal email along with the confirmation email. I'm looking forward to seeing what all she has and will pass it on. There are 123 full sets and the CD has all formats included on it. I also just got an email from julias needles and she has an 80% off sale until Sept 5th. She has some cute things. I'm also checking out another site that I just found and you can download as many designs as you want and trust me there are alot and you can get lots of projects for the designs. It only cost $8 a month and you can cancel when ever you want. That site is embroideryDK.

    I just bought an embrodery machine so am looking for lots of patterns. Ordered 3 from Tucker but so far no downloads have arrived. Ordered the CD from Watts and hope that has a better outcome. I am enjoying my new machine and say thank you for the site info.

    Well, I joined her yahoo site and discovered that someone dearly close to her passed away Aug. 6, 2012. Even though it was her puppy, we as loving animal owners know just how hard this can be. So maybe with life happenings and a loss of a pet left her with maybe not such a professional attitude....looks like some had difficulties ordering while others had a good experience.....

    Thanks so much for the heads up, DeniseP. I passed this info along to a friend, also. Ordered my set yesterday, and was in the midst of downloading (took about an hour) when I read your post, romanojg. So..I held my breath almost the whole download time. Everything went well for me, though. Now...I have the daunting task of organizing all the designs. In my spare time. Right!

    So sorry you had a bad experience, romanojg.

    Thanks again, DeniseP!

    Paying was a piece of cake; it's the downloading that's an issue. I work in the IT dept and I know it can take a while but my first time trying I only got less than a 1/4 of the file on my pc and it wouldn't open. When I tried the second time it would do nothing. I only wanted them to reset it so that I could try again. I just don't understand the attitude but they did refund my money. I got some great designs for such a small price from JuliasNeedles. She emailed me to thank me and was very nice; like a business person or even a person in general should be. I will be ordering from her again so the person who put the link on here I appreciate it. I'm very happy for all of you who have been able to get them downloaded without any problems and I hope those who have problems can get it worked out so you can get the designs. You can never have too many designs.

    Mine downloaded just fine...they downloaded as a zipped file, so you have to unzip them...could that be the problem you all are having?

    Try Juliasneedles; they have a great sale going on for a couple of days. I got almost $80 worth of designs last night for $14. Plus they have some cute free ones. Congratulations on your embroidery machine; I got mine almost a yr ago. I can't believe how many designs I have already; most free and the ones that I did pay for are almost all reduced in price. I have so much fun doing them and I'm learning alot from my dealer. Right now I'm taking all of my designs and converting them into pictures using my software (the designs stay the same, they just make a copy and covert it into pic) so that I can print out thumbnails of what I have. I putting them in folders with the company name so that I know where I got them. The designs will end up having a copy in folders showing what they are for. I leave the original in the zip file under co name so that if I ever need to replace it I know where I got it and the orginal name of design. Good luck. I google free designs one night and was up the rest of the night downloading them; well some of them

    I have over a 1000 designs on my pc and they all downloaded as a zip file so that isn't the problem. Plus with my pc, I don't have to unzip my files, I have them in my 5D organizer and click on the zip folder and they all show up in the preview screen and then I copy them into a folder for each topic. I always keep the orginal in the zip folder in case I need it. My laptop is large enough that it'll take yrs to fill it up and way before then I'll have a newer one.

    The first time the file that did download wasn't even the right size, and it was complete in a minute or two. Since it didn't complete it shows up as an invalid file. The second time it did nothing at all but my option to download went away. That's why I emailed them to get them to reset it so that I could try again. I read the emails others had sent them about not getting their designs so I told them that if I didn't hear back from them that day I'd cancel the order. I don't have the funds to put out there and get nothing. She was offended that I said that and refunded my money and locked me out of the site. I did nothing wrong except want my designs that I paid for in good faith.

    I work with computers for a living so downloading I can do it in my sleep and my internet and pc are both fast enough to accept them. I didn't care how long it would take.

    It's all good. I found out after that about Watts and ordered the CD, got a really nice email from her. I also found out about julias needles and got some freebees and then with 80% sale got alot more. I'm checking out anothe site EmbroideryDK, that you can join for $8 a month, and download everything they have and lots of projects as well. You can cancel at anytime so there is no obligation. I want to check out the designs more to see what they have but so far it's looking good and they have some cute projects as well. I'll be telling my teacher about that one.

    I always order from http://juliasneedledesigns.com . They are fantastic and offered in most formats.
    She will occasionally add a free set to her site. Right now she is running a special.

    She will pick several sets, mark them as Dollar Designs. It is a great time to stock up. Check out her site the special is now.

    IF you purchase this download, which I did, be sure to download the "Complete Catalog". Otherwise, you're going to have problems finding the design you want.
