    this might get spendy!

    I just discovered emblibray.com . . .

    Yes -- it can get spendy! I Love all the designs I've purchased from them. Embroidered an Embossed Pumpkin on an Orange Sweatshirt a couple of years ago. It is beautiful. Can't find the photo I took of the sweatshirt. Sorry, will continue to look for it.

    Their patterns have always worked out well for me, and they have lots of sales....

    QuiltNan, sorry I only meant to have the word love in caps to show much I liked the designs from Embroidery Library. Would it have better if I placed quotation marks instead?

    Be sure to sign up for their emails. You will get notices of the sales and most of the time, the designs are 1.39 each. When browsing, I usually just put the designs I like on my "wish list" and then when there is a sale, I can look and see if any of my "wishes" are on sale. Did you check out their tutorials? great information there as well.
    I have also found that their designs stitch out wonderfully. Never had a problem with any of them.

    i use boldface, itallics, or underline to emphasize specific words.
    if i want to "shout if from the rooftops" i use all three.

    i haven't added up the total amount i've spent at the embroidery library over the past several years.
    i don't worry about that because i only buy what i need that day.
    i don't recall ever spending as much as $20 - and that was for more than one collection on sale.
    it's usually less than $5. sometimes either free or just $1.

    that's my kind of shopping!

    thanks for the other links -

    I think I'd better limit myself to only buying when I have a project in mind. There are so many I fall in love with that I'd buy for "stash" and I really don't need to be doing that!

    Thanks for all of the links. I am familiar with a couple of them so I will need to investigate the others some day soon.

    This is the only place I get designs .The designs always sew up nicely. They are easy to search for. The site keeps an order history of all designs you've purchased. Every month has free design and sale designs.
