15 Sites that offer Free Embroidery Designs

What was it about the title that raised your interest?  Was it purely 'embroidery designs' or 'free' or because it said '15 sites offering free machine embroidery designs'?

I'm just curious...

I have been embroidering for many years but never felt confident enough to digitize my own designs.  So, a girls got to do, what a girls got to do.  

And that means, swipe, swipe, swipe.

I became addicted to buying new designs and my library is maybe too big for my pc. Having said that, I am more reluctant to pay for every single design I fancy. 

Who am I kidding? I'm a sucker for a cute design! You know what I mean.  

Anyhow, if the cutie comes with a $0.00 tab, it's so much better for the conscience.

Luckily, there are so many sites that offer free quality designs, and here is a list of the best 15 25+ embroidery design sites for you: -
