This was my first large purchased design. I've done a few small freebies and some words to work out some basics like what stabilizer to use, which needle to use, how to adjust the tension, and how to position the design. I've sewn a lot of clothes and bags but have only just started dabbling in machine embroidery. I've had a few pointers from a local machine embroidery but am mostly just making it up as I go along. (which I enjoy tremendously)

The machine said 75 min stitch time. I started at 9:45pm and it wasn't finnished until 11:15pm. I had to change the thread a few times, and it broke 3 times. Luckily my machine is pretty good at noticing when the top thread breaks, stopping, and has buttons on screen to help me move forward and back in the design to start again in the right spot. I didn't intend to stay up that late but I'm rather glad I did Smiley

This design is from Emblibrary. I bought the Celtic Fantasy Circles set when they had their new years sale. I had a needle break when attemtpting a freestanding lace design from the same site so I was a bit scared. When at local machine embroidery store gathering info I found out that some designs from emblibrary are dense and can be difficult. Has any one else tried designs from that site? (Am I asking this question in the right forum? should it be in the discussion area?) How did they turn out?

I can't offer any input on the designs, but this is absolutely beautiful!  I think it was definitely worth the time it took, and I'm glad your machine was able to keep up with the few snags.  You did great!

That looks like it turned out great.

Yes, emblibrary does have some dense designs.  I've used a lot of their designs though, and they have all stitched out well.

You did a great job, my first shirt was not perfectly centered. I use emblibrary all the time. I haven't had any problems with the regular designs, but none of my applique designs work. I think it have to do with using smaller sizes because I have had that problem with other designs.
