    I just saw a quilt with all kinds of embroidery machine stuff on it. Where do you get patterns for your machine to make these types of quilts?
    I know of designs by JuJu, Searching for stuff is just exhausting. If you don't search for what she called it, you can't find it.
    Also for making quilt labels how should I search for small letters? all the alphabets i have found are for letters an inch tall. and they don't get much smaller.
    any help is much appreciated!

    most emb machines have small lettering built in, check your instruction book. my favorite sites for designs are cute emb, emb library and everyday amazing designs. there are free designs on some sites every day.

    I like Julia's Needle Designs too.

    I use the letters in my software.

    I get most of my designs from Oregon Patchworks and Sick Designs. OPW has great sales and many designers to choose from. They have a Search feature on site so it's easier to find what you want. I could spend hours looking at the variety. Sick Designs has lots of sales and good prices. Lots of smaller size designs at Sick. I havent found the small alphabet in nice font either. I'll be watching this posting for info on that.

    Ok, I would have replied a lot sooner but have been powerless all morning! then no internet! ARGGG!!

    My machine has fonts on it 6 of them, but the smallest I can get it is .75 inches. I want smaller like writing, so I can do labels and such. Some other projects like writing paragraphs. I have been looking on JuJu, and the alphabets on there are much larger, not to mention I have to put them on letter by letter.
    My machines takes PES files.
    Ok I'm off to go look at all those sites!

    I don't think the trial will let you download anything to keep that you make in the trial, I have embird, digitizing studio and iconizer, if I were you while you still have the trial, go in and download ALL the help topics and the built in tuts, they really are helpful, the manual is greek!!!!! You will do all your own digitizing in studio
