When DS gave me the BabyLock for Christmas 2006, it came with Designer's
Gallery Studio Plus, an Embroidery Management Software, and includes Letter
Works 2.0.
It does fantastic lettering and would probably work with your Brother
machine.  I'm not advertising it, just  making a comment as to my
satisfaction with it.

Have you looked at the fonts available from Embird: ?
I have bought several and I like the way they stitch out.

Embird also has an add-on font engine:

I use Corel DRAWINGS and it works great.  You can use any truetype font,
specify your fabric and it adjusts the stitches accordingly.  for me it
is perfect every time.

I'm also a long time user of Corel Draw (Since Version 1 on Windows
2.0). In their idiocy, however, they make it unrealistic for any user
of Corel Draw to acquire DraWings. The package is fully integrated, so
they don't, or can't, offer it as an add-on. Fine - but they will not
even offer an upgrade (for the price difference) that would simply
replace an existing Corel Draw with DraWings. I wonder just how many
sales they've lost.

That said, I'm very happy with Artista for working with existing
truetype fonts. Other programs that can use any installed (or open)
truetype font include PEDesign and Wilcom.  Programs that can't use
computer fonts directly include Embird and Viking/Pfaff products.

Thank you for the info Herb!
I have PEDesign Ver. 6 and can use it pretty well but my fonts (built in and
TT) sometimes stitch a little choppy or sloppy in the fine line areas.
I am also trying to figure out how to correct for the long stitches (satin
stitch) when using a larger font type.

Also, Do you have a base size that you recommend when setting up smaller
For example when stitching out a name or date?
Thank you again, I always enjoy reading your posts, I learn so much from

I recommend seriously Wilcom, if you can buy it. For text only, you
can get the 21L level.
