Q: Do you wholesale to dealerships?
Q: Can the designs be resold?
A: Absolutely not. It clearly states in design documentation that you
may not resell the designs. By purchasing you are only acquiring the
right to sew the designs out. You may also stitch them on items you
sell in doing business, provided no mass marketing is involved. But you
absolutely may not give them away, trade them, or resell. I have gift
certificates that can be emailed or mailed to the recipient.

Q: Which format should I purchase?
A: I advise you to purchase the format you use. Hus format are the
original file formats, but many of the files may be manipulated
specifically for your format's needs. Please feel free to email me to
discuss what format will best suit your machine if there is a question. If
you are limited to a 4x4 hoop, choose the small version of sets.
Q: I need another format. What do I do?
A: If you aquire another machine, just email me and let me know so
that I can make a note on your product registration and send you the
appropriate files. This is a courtesy.
Q: I have lost my designs. Can you help me?
A: I will replace sets purchased up to 6 months after purchase, so
please back up your files when you receive them.
Q: Are your designs tested?
A: Yes, my designs are tested by independent testers. However,
please note that designs are digitized for a medium weight woven with
a layer of tearaway. Results will vary if proper stabilization is not used.
For a knit, always stabilize with a cut away of appropriate weight for
the substrate. Do not stretch the fabric in the hoop or tighten the
screw after hooping. The hoop should be set prior to hooping so that
the fabric "drum" is set when hooping. Using sticky paper is NOT
advised unless specifically called for. Sticky paper tends to break down
very quickly and does not provide adequate stabilization in most cases.
Designs are digitized for 40wt. polyester embroidery thread. Rayon
40wt thread will do fine as well. Keep in mind that there are many
variables that an affect design outcome. We aim for an average
scenario as stated above. Please do not resize the designs. If you wish
to experiment with resizing, perserve the original file So far, no resizing
software is capable of rendering satisfactory results for random edge
