So, I love Urban Threads. I think the designs are amazing, & love that all(?) of their designs are available in a variety of sizes.

Now, my boyfriend wants some shirts & hats embroidered with bass fishing gear. I've done a bit of scouring of the internet, & have yet to find a site that measures up, even in part, with how much I like Urban Threads in terms of usability or designs.

My question, then, is this:

What site do you buy your embroidery designs from? Bonus points if they are as awesome as UT.

Alternatively: Recommend free Mac compatible digitizing software.

Thanks in advance, everyone!

There was one Mac compatible program I got to demo once at a craft show. It cost $3000. Sad I would recommend getting a cheap Windows netbook, they run about $150-250 and install only embroidery software on it.

Machine embroidery designs are available online at many web sites. However, my favorite pick comes from OregonPatchWorks. I get to choose from the latest embroidery designs and that too at huge discounts!

There are so many places that offer machine embroidery designs anymore that it is hard to list them all  I would start googling  "Machine embroidery design + (whatever random thing you'd love to stitch)" and see what comes up. For example if you google machine embroidery design bunny, you will get pages of bunnies from lots of digitizers.

Etsy is booming with designs as well.

I buy most of mine from embroidery library. WWW.emblibrary.com . They are a sister company to Urban Threads and they are very affordable. I also get some from Dakota Collectibles and Anita Good. Dakota Collectibles is used by a lot of commercial embroiderers.
