15 Free In the Hoop Designs (ITH)

You can grab free In the Hoop (ITH) machine embroidery designs if you just know where to look for them. In this post, I’ve listed 15 sites offering you Free Embroidery Designs (ITH).

ITH machine embroidery makes embroidering and finishing articles in a very professional manner, so much easier.  In fact, I am so spoiled, I’d rather do ith embroidery than just normally stitching out a design – I’ve said it. 

If you are not familiar with ITH (In-the-hoop) embroidery, it is in short, a machine embroidery design that allows you to complete a project in one or more hooping with little or no further sewing required.

It is such a privilege to share more of the world of machine embroidery with you, especially free designs!

I am totally addicted to ITH embroidery and really love the simplicity of the process.

This is a complimentary post to my previous extremely popular post – 15+ Sites that offer free Embroidery designs. Check it out!
