Announcement   I have been digitizing since 2008 and selling my designs since 2009. So, you can be sure that you are purchasing well thought out and beautiful designs. Each design is tested before it is listed for sale.

I stopped selling on etsy for many years, but recently started listing a few designs again. You can find over 4,000 embroidery designs on my froufroubyheathersue website, which I am not allowed to link to. But, you can assume the web address is my shop name. Thank you!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS-
1.
Q: I purchased an item, but haven't received it yet.
A: All of my designs are instant digital downloads to use on your embroidery machine. You will not receive an item in the mail from me.

2.
Q: Do you do custom orders? Can you digitize this for me?
A: I am not taking any custom orders. That is, no designs that cannot be sold again. I am also taking very few requests at this time. However, feel free to ask if you have an idea for a design for me. If I have the time on that day, I may be able to help you out. In the past, I got bogged down with up to 10 requests a day and it got very stressful. So, I very rarely accept requests now.

3.
Q: I opened the designs you sent, but my sewing machine/program/etc... won't read them.
A: Make sure you are viewing the correct format for your machine (PES, HUS, JEF, etc...). If the design still won't work, it is most likely a problem with the program you are using to get the design onto your machine. Various programs will do this on occasion, seemingly at random. Sometimes renaming the file will help (the file itself, not the zip file) trick your program into reading it. Just right click on the design file and choose "rename" and give it a new name. AFTER you do this and the file still won't work on your machine, please contact me. I may be able to help you further.

4.
Q: How do I get the color behind the lines, like I see on your stitched out designs?
A: The majority of my designs are appliques. This means that fabric is used to provide the majority of the color. There are several great tutorials online that will help you learn how to machine applique. Here is a video tutorial that is very useful:

5.
Q: What are all of the extra stitches and color changes at the beginning of the designs?
A: Most of my designs start with several steps in varying shades of blue or orange. These are the placement and tack down stitches. The placement stitch will be first. This is a straight stitch that shows you where to lay your fabric. Next will come a loose zig-zag stitch that shows you where to trim the fabric. Try to cut as close to these lines as you can without cutting the threads. You do not have to actually change the thread color for the placement and tackdown stitches. This is just so your machine knows to stop so you can complete the necessary steps. After all of the pieces are in place, the machine will begin the different colors of satin stitching and details.

6.
Q: May I share your files with my closest friends?
A: The designs you purchase are for your use only. You may not share these files with anyone else. You may not sell the files. You may not alter them and then sell the files as your own.

6.
This isn't a question, but please make sure that you are kind when you contact me. I am a person and I do my best to make my customers happy. There is no need to be mean. For the most part, I have wonderful and friendly customers. Thank you so much!
