Having trouble finding embroidery design files in the VP3 format for some models of Husqvarna or Pfaff embroidery machines? Why buy embroidery files one design or one set at a time (Etsy retail $2 to $10) or one card at a time (Etsy retail $49 to $120) for your embroidery machine when you can have thousands of beautiful designs for one low price!
Included in this auction is a DVD, multiple CDs, or USB drive containing one collection of over 22,000 embroidery design files in this format. A viewer/editor/sizer program for embroidery files will be provided free. The Embroidery Collection contains Embroidery Cards 1 through 65 (over 1,600 design files), Boutique Embroidery Cards 1 through 36 (over 595 design files), and Bonus Folders containing over 350 files of your cartoon and children's story favorites (seven folders - subjects sent by request). This collection also contains over 76 folders (over 1,200 design files) of TV and movie cartoon favorites (list sent by request). Also included are over 330 Design folders (over 3,700 design files), including animals, sports, flowers, farm, Christmas, dinosaurs, holidays, children, and many more. As an additional bonus, I will also include over 8,500 design files from my wife's Embroidery Shop business accumulated over many years. Included are Bozo, Eeore, Daffodils, Santa, Alphabets, Animals, Babies, Bumblebees, Dalmatians, Dinosaurs, Easter, Flamingos, Gators, Lace, Mermaids, Music, Puppies, and many others. Many of these special designs were created for custom towels, dresses, and shirts for individual embroidery customers. Also included is the Special Collection of over 4,300 designs originally created in other embroidery formats. That means you are getting over 22,000 designs in your format with this set. That is the equivalent of 514 memory cards retailing for over $3,500.
INTERNATIONAL BUYERS: I now sell in Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, New Zealand, and Australia. The Postage Calculator will determine the amount of extra postage required for your location.
More than 95 percent of these designs are sized to fit a 4x4 hoop with a smaller number sized for a 5x7 hoop and a few for a 6x10 hoop. The included viewer/sizer program can be used to resize the designs to your required hoop size, if necessary.
You may need an appropriate program and card writer hardware to write the design files to a blank embroidery card to get the files into your embroidery machine. For those with a USB port on your embroidery machine, transfer of the design files from the purchased media to a USB flash drive is easily accomplished using your Windows computer.
These designs are now available on either one DVD, multiple CDs, or one USB drive (all have the same designs - see the menu for prices). All media will now contain a PDF catalog showing a picture of every design (yes - all 22,000 plus designs), the thread color chart, sewing order, size, and number of stitches. The catalog file can be opened with Adobe Reader, a free PDF viewing program. If you don't have a DVD drive on your computer, buy either the CDs or the USB drive. One CD contains the Design Catalog PDF file.
All media are checked on two different computers before they are packaged to ensure that they were copied correctly and will open on your Windows computer. No refunds! These are easily copyable computer files. A new media will be sent in exchange if something is wrong with your returned media. Please contact me with any problems before leaving feedback.
When you get your media, check it immediately. If anything is wrong with it, let me know. When you find that your media is okay, immediately copy it to your hard drive. Then take your media, put it in the protective sleeve, put that back in the bubble envelope, and lock it away in a safe location. The media you are buying is guaranteed to work when you receive it and for 7 days thereafter (more than enough time for you to copy it to your hard drive). After that, don't contact me for a replacement. If something happens to your hard disk copy, just remove your media from safe storage and recopy it to your hard drive. It will work like brand new. Then lock the protected media disk away again in case you need it. By buying from this auction, you state that you understand this policy.
Know your machine's required design format before you buy. If you order the wrong media or the wrong format, that is what I am sending. A different media or a different design format is available from my auctions at an additional cost. There are no exceptions.
The designs on this media were made from public-domain clip art and/or original art work. They were converted to embroidery machine instructions using digitizer programs such as Brother's PE Design and Embrilliance Enthusiast. I am the licensed owner of these embroidery programs. I personally created the design in your embroidery format. You may use the machine instructions on this media for your own personal use or to embroider items for resale. You may not give away, distribute, or sell these machine instructions without my expressed written permission.
If you buy a DVD or CD, you will receive the described designs on a disk(s) written with Nero software with a disk label tastefully designed by me using Media Face software. The disk(s) will be sent in a paper disk envelope inside a cardboard stiffener inside a padded mailer envelope within one business day. The disks and labels are not factory made. If you want a factory-made disk, buy it somewhere else. If you buy a USB flash drive, you will receive the described designs on a USB stick in a color and memory size of my choice.
If you buy these designs on a USB stick, the designs are written to the USB stick in Windows format using a Windows computer. That is so you can plug it into your Windows computer and transfer the designs to your hard drive. You can then delete the designs from the USB stick and use the empty USB stick to transfer the designs 1 at a time, 5 at a time, or 22,000 at a time to your embroidery machine. If your embroidery machine accepts Windows-formatted USB sticks, you can plug it in exactly as you receive it in the mail. Many embroidery machines (Janome 350e is one) require the empty USB stick to be formatted in the embroidery machine (using that machine's formatting process) before any designs can be written to it. Other machines (like Brother PE-770) accept Windows-format USB sticks, but require that the designs be written to the root directory (lowest memory level) of the USB stick (no folders on the USB stick). Other embroidery machines (such as the Viking Designer I) require that special computer programs be used to format the USB stick in the computer before the computer writes the designs to the USB stick. Every machine is different. That is why I recommend that the designs be written to your hard drive first and then copied to the USB stick using the procedure specified in your machine's operating manual.
This disk contains thousands of embroidery design files, some of which may be duplicates. Others have been resized or incorporate thread color changes. I have tried to delete as many duplicates as possible, but it is impossible to catch every one with a collection so large.
If you cannot put the media into your computer, transfer the files to your hard drive, and access the designs with your embroidery program, please do not buy from this auction. I spent over half my time showing people how to operate their own computers and embroidery machines. Please read your computer or embroidery machine manual or call your computer dealer or embroidery machine dealer for this advice.
If you buy something from me, I will ship it regardless of whether you bought it before or bought a different format before. I cannot track your past purchases. I also will not cancel a sale since this counts against my Seller rating. Think before you buy because whatever you buy, I am shipping it to you.
I only accept Paypal. Shipping is to Paypal-confirmed addresses in the 50 U. S. states and select world locations. Yes, I ship to Alaska, Puerto Rico, and Hawaii. No, I will not ship it to Nigeria based on experience. To support our Armed Services personnel and their families, I will send to APO boxes.
All my items are from a smoke-free home. Yes, I have a dog, but he uses a different computer.
Shipping is free to U. S. buyers. The amount charged goes to pay for blank media, disk envelopes, padded mailing envelopes, postage, Etsy and Paypal fees, and for my time to make, pack, and mail the media.
