i mostly said it for your behalf batgirl - as long as i can't see INTO their mouth (eww!!), i don't mind a bit of mess!
linda, i might have read it here even! i was hanging around in the machine embroidery boards a bit too!
stefferoni, what's the thread cassette that your SE270D has? i've totally been checking out free patterns, and stuff, and now that i have the PE Design Lite, i can download them and use them!
and yep, .pes format! i'm scared to try rehooping too.... there's a lace design that i want to embroider SO BAD, but the women at the brother dealer said lace is the hardest to rehoop...
this is the thread cassette I'm talking about:
I do have about 4,000+ designs I've collected through the years, though.
That involves a LOT of online hours looking for freebies & some I've bought, too. I don't have the PE Design, but Embird probably works the same as that (though Embird supports other format, too, in case I decided to buy a non-Brother one).
I have never done lace! Frankly, I'm rather intimidated by it...wait are you talking about those free-standing lace bowls & whatnot??
