I love personal swaps,  I print a lot of random fabric, usually with no purpose in mind.  let me know if you want any of it.

I loved this enough to go buy the pattern from the site :-)

What embroidery machine do you use? I can't make large patterns on mine and would REALLY like to.

I purchased this design from UT a couple of months ago. I test stitched it out and it stitched beautifully. I haven't put it on anything yet but I'm dying to.

What's more.... I had to take my machine in for some updates and adjustments because it stopped stitching properly right in the middle of another design.
This one...   http://www.urbanthreads.com/product_details?product_id=63&category_id=27

So I left the emb in the hoop and loaded up the whole mess.
My repair person fixed the machine and we finished embroidering the design right there. While it was running we chatted and she commented that 'this design sure is stitching nicely. It is well digitized.' Her words. So I shared the name of the Urban Threads website with her. She's not a digitizer but those of us who emb a lot can recognize a well digitized design from a crappily digitized design because we embroider a lot and have experienced our share of both

One more thing. Last year I did a little digitizing. When I say a little I mean very little. It is time consuming and tedious. I have a new-found respect for someone who takes the time to work with a design till it stitches out perfectly. It's easy to want to give in before that.

UT's designs are great, I highly recommend them

^ i'm totally on board on what the previous person said. UT rocks! but to be fair, they're using some really good equipment to digitize Wink i'm actually in awe when i see all the ideas that they have produced and how well they draw.

we have the technology. Smiley

and hooray for UT, without them.. what would we do?

Speaking of digitizing... If you digitize or would like to play around with it for free, here's a program that I found on the net and have been playing with it myself.

It's huge, over 300mb but if you have the room on your computer it's fun.

Here's the page where you can download it
Type in that number or whatever.
