If you should find any dead links, please let me know, and I'll repair them. To find my current free alphabet series, click here. 

 

One new design is added to this page each week, as part of the regular site update. Each design will remain for approximately four weeks  before being removed to make space for the next new design. Thus at any one time there will be four free designs showing on this page, with the most recent one at the top.


As of April 2017, I have begun the process of adding size information to the design images. All newly posted designs will carry this information from now on, but adding it retroactively to the other designs on the site will take quite some time (there are approximately 7600 designs on the site, and it takes about 5-10 minutes per design to add the information). I appreciate your understanding as I go through this rather arduous process.


Unless otherwise noted, the free designs are 4" size and will stitch in a 4x4" (100x100mm)  hoop.  If you would like to purchase any of them in one of the other sizes please inquire.


To download a free file, click on the image. A download window will open, and from there you can save the zipped file to your computer. To unzip, double click on the zipped file in Windows-- a window will appear that will allow you to save the unzipped file to your computer.


Note: The free designs are in PES format. If your machine doesn't use PES, you can easily covert the files using free on-line conversion software such as the one available at this link.  Wilcom also offers free web-based or downloadable embroidery file converter available at this link.  Alternatively, you can convert with Embird Editor (available in a 30-day trial version).

To convert to Bernina's proprietary ART format, you can download their free conversion software, Artlink 6. I have never used it since it requires a Bernina machine , but several of my clients have reported success in reformatting to ART.


In the past four years I have given away approximately 1000 free designs.  I will continue to post free designs with each update, one to this page and one to the free alphabet series, which you can find at this link.
