    Lots of sites offer free designs if that is what you are asking, we can share links. Otherwise, no, it is against the law to share designs unless the person has digitized it themselves. Designs by SICK has a daily freebie, several sites offer a free design every 15 minutes or every hour. Just google "free machine embroidery designs" and you will have enough to keep you busy for a long while. Just be careful, this is an addictive hobby! You will find yourself on-line downloading every chance you get.

    Hi, which Singer embroidery machine did you get?I have the older one, the Singer Futura 250, and the designs have to be entered using a computer...of course, yours may be different.

    Try www.emblibrary.com for free embroidery designs. Also do a search on your computer for other free designs.

    Go to google and do a search; you can find lots of them. Once you sign up on a few sites they'll send you emails w/specials. Just about all the sites has some freebees.

    Embroidery Library is my favorite site to buy designs. They do offer a few free ones if they offer them in your machine size.

    Embroidery designs are usually very pricey. I know the machine embroiderers in my guild do not share designs at all. It's buy your own and they are fast to say it. LOL
    Got fabric?

    Yes there are a ton of sites that let you download free designs. Just Google. As time goes on you will buy designs. One thing I will let you know www.emblibrary.com has sales ALL the time. Look through and get on their email list and you will find what you want and if you wait you can get it half off

    As Linda8450 stated it is illegal to share or trade purchased designs, even though it is fun.
    Embroidery Designs is a site that sells designs from many different digitizers. Some are good others less so. It is easier to judge a site that has designs created by a single person or single team like Embroidery Library or designs by SICK. Since the same digitizer(s) created every design it's easier to judge the quality.

    I have purchased from Embroidery Library and their designs stitch out beautifully. They have free designs every month, so that would be a good place to test their designs. I have a Singer Futura CE-350 (when it isn't in the shop) and it connects to my pc via usb cable, so no discs are required.

    Read your machine manuel. You need to know what extension to download, and it is so much easier to get the correct one to begin with. Some where is should say you need to use PEC or SEW or HUV or some thime like that. Then when you go to Annthegram and you pick a free design (lots of great ones) you will know which one to pick. Also you will need to know how to transfer between your computer and your sewing machine. Does it use a cable, a card or a USB flashdrive....they all seem to be different. Good Luck

    Lot's of sites that have free designs here are some of my favorites...Designs by Sick, Cute Embroidery, Stitch it Cheap, Embroidery Library, Cute Alphabets, Splinters and Threads, Bunnycup. That should get you started. While you are checking them out you will probably find more. Enjoy!!!
