    So, I got the PED for my birthday. I've done a few searches and been to a few FREE sites to download embroidery designs, but none seem to work?
    Anyone have a favorite site for this to share?
    TIA!

    A great site for embroidery designs to download, not free, but very reasonable is emblibrary.com you can find anything you want there, very reasonable and they often have specials once you get on their list.

    Oregonpatchwork. com, Secrets of embroidery (.com) both have links to MANY digitizers, etc. You might want to try embroidery.com, or google "machine embroidery designs"; that's how I have found all of mine so far. Best of luck, & congrats on the new machine!! Oh, one I am a member of (almost forgot about it) is embroiderydk.com. Also check out the Singer website- I know your machine isn't Singer, but they offer many designs for free and for sale in many formats. (embroiderydk.com does as well)

    I have Brother Disney 4000D and don't use PED at all - unless you want to learn digitizing yourself, I learned the basics with Janome Digitizer and Generations previously so haven't found the need for PED - I have designs from all other sites mentioned above, including OESD, Stitch Delight (a favourite) siCK and a few more - when browsing sale items there is often a free sample at the end of a digitizer's page; just spend a little time browsing and you will be pleasantly surprised. Some other 'free sites' ask you to sign up before accessing their freebies so it depends on how many sites you wish to belong to!!!

    I have lots from SICK Designs. They have great prices, many specials and a free design every day. I also love the designs from Oregon Patchworks, they have quality designs and good specials.

    I have a Brother and PE Design 7. I get a lot of patterns from Artistic Threadworks or http://www.artisticthreadworks.com/public/main.cfm

    They offer several freebies and I think their prices are reasonable. They have tons of designs and I have never had a problem with them. If you are a member, you can download the patterns for free. They also have a newsletter if you are interested.

    I also have a brother embroidery machine and I have purchased from http://www.juliasneedledesigns.com and Betty's Original Embroideries.

    Yahoo also has embroidery design groups that when you join, the designers share their talent with members with free designs that are posted to the group.

    I also like Oregon Patchworks and Embroidery Library.

    Hi, Check out the magazine Designs in Machine Embroidery, they post their recent back issues on line and when you go through the pages, there are little bumble bees to click on which will show you MANY freebies to down load, the plus is you get to evaluate a lot of different digitizers out there and focus on who has the type of stuff that you like. Once downloaded, you need to interface with your ped basic to save to a card, or if your machine accepts it you can download directly to a flash drive,, (which I love) Hope this helps, Pat :) :) :)

    Try These:

    http://www.free-embroidery-designs.com/freedesignsblog/

    http://freeembroiderystuff.embroider...ckdesigns.aspx

    http://www.secretsof.com/embroiderytips/freedesigns.htm

    http://www.freewebs.com/cartoonembro...abcdesigns.htm
    (this site has amazing design sets VERY inexpensive)

    With PED, you aren't downloading directly from the site to the card, you are downloading to your computer, unzipping the file and putting it in a folder. Then when you use PED you will go into the folder and download the design onto PED from there.
