I have just bought a second hand innovis 500D machine as I wanted to try embroidering by machine. As I am completely new to this (usually I'm cross stitching) I know I need software but am unsure which to get and would eventually like to download or purchase designs from the internet. I have heard about digitizing but dont know what that involves and I know I have to transfer designs to a memory card but dont know how to do this either!!
Any help for a beginner of machine embroidery would be helpful
