new machine

Hi There

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

RE: new machine

Look on the Net there are many freebies out there. A design software package can be expensive. You will need a USB and a card to download to you computer then the card goes in your embro machine.

RE: new machine

go to Delphi Forums and then Friendly Sewing. You will find neat people and one special lady that specializes in providing a daily list of free designs you can download from various sites. Saves tons of money and good designs.

RE: new machine

Thanks for your replies, I have since bought pe design 6 on e bay got a really good price, and a Cd with designs on ( i like to jump in at the deep end!) and a really good book which has helped me a lot, just have to work out how to get the designs of the Cd and onto my machine now. The designs are in the pes format, but have only just mastered the basics of pe design so far.
