How to use the designs

All of our designs come in a zip file. This zip file contains all of the formats and sizes! This makes it really easy to share them online with you, but you will need to do a bit of work before you can transfer them to your machine.

  2. Right click on the zip file that you’ve downloaded

  9. A folder will open up. This is your USB drive’s storage.
  10. Locate the correct file type for your machine
  11. Drag and drop the desired file formats and sizes to the USB drive
  12. Wait for your machine to finish copying the files
  13. Next, look to the right and find your desktop’s icon tray

  15. Click eject on the icon (This helps prevent data loss)

Embroidery machines can vary in procedure from this point on. You may need to consult your manual or look for a tutorial for your machine on YouTube if you get stuck. If you’ve got a Brother machine, the instructions can be found here. However, in most cases, the process is pretty straight forward!
