I have ordered a Janome 300E and have been looking on the net at all the free designs available. It's stunning!

For my machine, they need to be .jef. How do I know what format the designs are in? and how do I convert?

Islay, most of the websites I've been on either allow you to download the designs in a bunch of formats (I just delete the ones I don't need), or a different button to click for the format you want.

As far as converting, I have Embird software that allows you to convert designs from one format to another. You can go to My Embroidery Haven and download a free trial of Embird. I also have an Amazing Box that allows me to convert designs to my format.

Donna,
I've just been to your website and it's all so beautiful. I should get my machine by the week end and I'll be back when I've got the hang of it. Those lace bowls just blew me away LOL. Thank you.

Ooh Islay - have fun with the new machine! I got my combo machine at a show a couple of years ago b/c I was so blown away by how easy it was to use - I knew NOTHING about the machine embroidery world! There is so much out there and so much to learn! You may also want to check out the Martha Pullen ME forum - there are a bunch of ladies on there who know EVERYTHING about ME! And they're really nice, too :)!

There is a free download that enables you to convert your designs. It is www.pulsemicro.com. Colleen

Many of the free designs are in a .zip file that you unzip and your .jef format should be in there when you unzip it.
