Default New embroidery machine..sites for patterns?

I got a new Janome 300e and I can download patterns on a card. Does anyone have websites that you get you patterns online from? I found one, but I'm wanting to get some free ones to practice on and practice downloading since I'm not 100% sure how to do that. I've seen where you have to buy another item to be able to download and use on the machine. But I've also heard you really don't have to buy this other item/program.

Thanks in advance.

Bobbi

my favorite is designsbyjuju.com I like it because they are cute. I do a lot of childrens items. her prices will say 20 per set, but there are always offers that bring them down to 4 or 5 per set.
she has a full page of freebees to try.

Many great designers and sales at oregonpatchworks.com . this is a mall type of place with many individual "stores"

you can pay with paypal at all of them. most have instand download.

Many good digitizers post there though there are also some rank amateurs that aren't very good. Mostly nice people though.

Well they gave you all my fave sites. Embroidery library has tons of free ones that arent even on the free page. I find them when I browsing around just looking.

Try this site:

http://cuteembroidery.com

The "designs by cuties" section has many, many free designs that are posted by members of this site. I especially like the "optical" designs posted...beautiful florals, butterflies, etc.

Good luck!
