You're welcome.  I have never had a bad design from
emblibrary.com.  I almost always resize, occasionally that
causes problems, however that's not emblibrary.com's fault.
Do you have software to manipulate designs?  I have Embird
and PSW 2.0.  I often open the design first in Embird, than
"save as" in the format for my machine, because very few
places offer .xxx format.

I find .pes the most reliable format for converting.

I have also bought several designs recently from
www.embroiderydesigns.com and I'm very happy with them (AND
they offer designs in .xxx!).  They have a bunch of fleur de
lis designs:

Re: Heartfelt Thanks - Very much appreciated
Oh my goodness, thank you just so very much.  BIG sloppy kisses, even.  I
wanted something very small and the one I liked the best is under 2".
WHoooo HOOO.  Beverly, this is wonderful.  I just fell off the pumpkin truck
so I don't understand diddly about resizing and such; lucky if I can get the
hooping and threading done without assorted disasters - but - can't  you
just see burp cloths and puddle pads, receiving blankets and maybe even a
few quilt blocks with ballet pink fleur de lis?   Polly

You're welcome.  I a pretty sure Herb will jump in here with
a suggestion about a free software package for re-sizing. As
I recall, the one he likes is Wilcom TrueSizer:
http://www.wilcom.com.au/PRODUCTS/TrueSizer.aspx

I like Embird, but it is not free.  I can also re-size using
the software written for my embroidery machine.

Herb?

You said it all :)

Well, almost. Wilcom Truesizer will also convert from just about any
design format, home or commercial, to just about any format EXCEPT
Bernina .ART.  Conversion is particularly useful when you acquire a
design that isn't in your machine's native format.

http://www.wilcom.com.au/PRODUCTS/TrueSizer.aspx

Another professional level program is Pulse Ambassador. The free
version can convert a slightly different range of formats, but I don't
think it can re-size.

Re: Heartfelt Thanks - Very much appreciated
The webpage (from your link) states the screen ***MUST*** be 1024 x 768

Is this mistated (should state "minimum") or do some have to go back to
lower resolution video?

TIA

I decided to register and test the product.  The following
information is on the "Important Support Information" page:
"Set the Screen Resolution to at least 1024 x 768"
                                                ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

I will report back, my screen resolution is 1280X768.

Works fine!  ;-)  I run XP Pro Service Pack 3 on a Dell
Inspiron 530, Processor is an Intel Duo CPU@ 2.8Ghz with
3.24GB RAM.  I have a 22" Viewsonic monitor, display
resolution set at 1280X768.

The Wilcom TrueSizer software loaded, opened a couple of
random files, resized them just fine, and closed without
hanging.  A winner in my book!

Thanks Herb, I don't really NEED another embroidery software
program, but I'll keep this one on the main computer I use
for design downloads, maybe I'll install it on the
embroidery computer later.

I took a look at the readme.pdf file, it says:
"Read and convert most popular embroidery machine format
files including home embroidery machine formats."

Nothing about resizing designs, though, as far as I could
see.

Madeira Thread in Polyester
I can get a nice kit of 48 spools of 1100yrd spiral wound polyester.  I'm
leaning towards polyester because it doesn't rot over time from lack of use
and it's colorfast.

Your thoughts? If my machine likes the Robison Rayon, what are the chances
the Madeira Poly would work? (My definition of "working" is little to no
breaks :) )

Also, it's been said Polyester thread is "harder" on the machine.  Can you
define "harder"?

I don't have many spools of Madeira poly, but what I do have
works fine.... for me, but I don't have a lot of problem
with thread breaking with the exception of metallics, and I
learned to SLOOOOW WAY DOWN when using them.  I also use a
larger needle (14) and put a  line of Sewer's Aid on each
spool/cone of metallic.

Excellent response Bev.. and here is why I offer the
accolade.
You been around the ropes a tad so it is not news
to you some will getup to all sorts of 'tricks'.
This NHR person is well reported trolling in may
places.. over a 1000 hits on just one search string
alone.

Gym Bob/Bengi/Josepi is well known for setting trolls
where the information is genuinely required, for
another purpose.
I aint saying GB is NHR.. yet.
I simply haven't the time to chase it up right now
buuuuut you sniff something also.. I read that in your
rebuttal of the invitation to comment.
So I make this post, knowing I am not the only one
smelling "rat" here.

To NHR?
If you aint who I am leaning to believe you are, and that from just five minutes
searching archives, then I strongly suggest you do more work
in "covering your tracks" when __you__ have a genuine need for information.
I aint your Mom.. you figure out how to keep guys like me from looking
when you go posting obvious 'clues'.
One sure way is to quit with your shenanigans elsewhere.
It is only "reputation" that gets you looked at.

Indeed it is well set as a UPA for you as one

As is that so it is that it is of no matter in this matter.

My information is for the Usenet illiterate.
You choose the association you wish, I offered my
opinion above(quoted)
I do not expect *you* to have the skills required
to follow the bouncing ball which is a trolls 'tracks'.
I *do* expect you to respect the effort made in making
the information available. The supply carries no less value
than any of the sewing info you pump yourself with.
As is seen by the reaction(s).
The 'target' has already acknowledged the information
is accurate.
ES (eternal-september.org) carries the NG, text only.

You are a Yank, by performance it is expected
Yanks are both naive AND "thick".
You are feeding trolls.
You have been told.
What you do about that is up to you.
Most, once discovering their stupidity do something
to correct the self indulgence.
YMMV

Don't feed the hopper troll.

Have a look at alt.binaries.crafts.pictures to see how he has destroyed that

Sorry, you will need more than a sleeping bag to keep
TRUTH from leaping into your head..
I advise you to block all mail originating from Bengi//Josepi.
He is after all just  a RFC-ignorant scumbag.

For sound advice I am looking to the frenchy guy, ignoring
your stupidity.
You are doing exactly what brought all those bad people
to invade the sewing group, troll feeding, thinking your
are the best. You forced us to go elsewhere, leaving you
Queen Windbag to rule over the bimbos.
Now you want to run the embroidery
section Queen My S**t NO Stinky Poo!
Bengi is Josepi in the archives. Like the frenchy says
you are one dumbass repug.
God Bless America to save us from the banal ignorant
types like you.

No, I will not come back to alt.sewing Bitch.

thanks,
