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. 


I am still on hiatus from the site and will be until approximately 26 October. For the time being I have suspended the regular updates to the design collection and removed much of the catalog, so most designs will be unavailable for purchase during my absence. If there's anything from the collection that you were planning to purchase, please e-mail me and I will get back to you as soon as I can.

In the meantime, there is some good news:

  • Free designs will keep on coming. The Bats Alphabet series will continue to completion, and a new series will begin on 26 October.
  • Featherweight-related designs are still available and I will continue to fill those orders, though I may be a little slower than usual because of being away from home and my computer.
  • The Free Designs collection has been enlarged to include most of the freebies I've shared over the life of the site.Once those are rolled out (page 6 is the final one for the time being), I will continue to add designs at intervals. Many of these have previously appeared as freebies on the site, but there are also several new ones among them. As well, several of the older designs have been re-digitized since they first appeared, so even if you have previously downloaded them you may wish to grab them again.

I will be back to the site full time by 26 October, at which time I'll provide an update and will post some new items in advance of Christmas.

With my thanks and very best wishes to all,


One new design is added to this page each week. 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  normally  be four free designs showing on this page, with the most recent one at the top.

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 five years I have given away approximately 1100 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.
