So, I won that embroidery sewing machine from Brother-sews!! It has arrived and is unboxed, and upstairs in the sewing room. I spent the morning shopping on line on Amazon and ordered a 63 color pack of embroidery thread, some stabilizer sheets and a spool of bobbin thread. That should hold me for a while. The machine came with 4 bobbins, (two threaded already) and 3 colors of embroidery thread and 4 stabilizer sheets. So, I can play for a day or two before my Amazon order arrives!
I’ll be happy to hear any suggestions or recommendations for folks using an embroidery machine. One question I have is about some kind of inexpensive software that will convert a JPEG file (like a photo) to an embroidery file ( .pes). What is the “basic” that I need to buy to do the job? (My husband has a logo or two he would like on shirts….putting me to work already!! :} ) Of course the machine came with about 70 built in designs and you can download embroidery designs, but I want to IMPORT my own…..thoughts????
