I can not. I print the pictures when I order them and have to look up the # and transfer to my machine.
The lady that had the thread had a big nice embroidery machine but her daughter took it when she passed , but none of the rest of her stuff. Thanks for any help.
There are emb programs out there that can help with this. I know that Brother has one and as long as all of your files are in the one folder they show up as pictures with the orginal names. The nice thing about it is that first the program is under 100 and it doesn't care what file extension it is as long as its in one folder. 6D pro also has an explorer now that I was able to download to use with my 5D so I can see my designs without inserting the dongle and all. I'm sure there are others.

Default My first set of cloth napkins with machine embroidered squares!

I just finished my first set ever of cloth napkins for a swap. I put an embroidered square in each corner.

It's software that helps you change the formats, etc.

different machine brands work differently- for example my Babylock you can open in the "files" and click and drag onto a USB. My sister has a Janome and she has to put it in a folder named EMB then a sub folder named EMBF.

Please forgive me for not reading all 94 pages of this thread, to search for the answer to my question!

I recently bought a Brother PE770 embroidery machine. It came with a spool of Brother bobbin thread, which says #90 weight. Since I'm a Superior thread fan, I'm wondering if I can substitute one of their threads . . . but it seems their finest thread is #60. Any advice? Should I just bite the bullet and order more Brother #90, when I run out?

Thanks for any advice/help!
