Taming Machine Embroidery Files

As you begin to use that beautiful new embroidery machine you will soon find lots and lots of designs on-line that grab your attention and give you ideas for projects that you can make and even if you are not a computer wizard, it’s easy to download and move a machine embroidery file to your machine…. let’s go get a design and drop it on a USB stick….

Each machine embroidery design website is different…. some have the color sheet/guide in a separate download or print off… some will have a little different route to your purchases (very often you will get an email confirming your purchase with a link to the download)… but once you get started, you can navigate almost any web site to find your purchased designs…

Have fun today and enjoy your sewing!

My Love Affair With My Bernina ❤️

I’ve sewn and been interested in all things needlework for 53 years…. I learned to sew on my grandmother’s treadle sewing machine…I loved that old machine! I made all my school clothes and many other projects on it…

My next machine was a singer which I didn’t have very long. As a young mother making clothes for my three little ones I soon traded that singer in on a brand new Elna…. I used my first Elna until it was worn out… about 20 years… at which time I purchased another new Elna which I loved and used about ten years and traded it in on a new computerized Pfaff… I wore it out too and had it long enough that all the computer connections were so out of date they no longer worked…I sewed on all these machines nearly everyday!

When my Pfaff died, I decided I was going to get the best new machine I could fit in my budget and started looking. My choices came down to baby lock and Bernina and the deciding factor was the Bernina stitch regulator… I bought a Bernina 770 QEE with embroidery module, added some extra hoops and more presser feet and I don’t regret one penny I spent on this machine! I love it… everyday it’s a delight and a joy to sit down and sew or embroider or quilt on this machine!

I keep it clean and oiled and care for it like it’s the wonderful machine that it is… I have it serviced regularly by my wonderful Bernina dealer and I’ve never had a single problem with it!

I’m hooked on Bernina!
