We highly recommend embroidery software for your computer if you did not purchase it with your machine. You will need it to merge letters for names, add names to frames, etc… Here are a few of our favorites. They all offer free trials and Embrilliance offers a completely free option for merging letters called Embrilliance Express. Embrilliance, SewWhat-Pro and Embird are all reasonably priced and offer upgrades for added features at reasonable prices as well.
Facebook is a great place to get help with your embroidery machine, software, get ideas or just to share pictures of your creations with other embroiderers! These are just a few of our favorite groups. There are a lot more!
