A specific card, or just designs for Brother machines?
Have you looked in Ebay? Some designers are offering embroidery designs in multiple formats (to suit many machine types) for direct download through Ebay. They are certainly cheaper than the name brand cards from retail outlets.
I am only just getting into my new machine (Janome 10001) but I plan to do as much of my own digitising as possible because the cards are expensive.

Jill, doesn't your machine also use floppies? Email me if it does--I might be able to help you. Gen

Hi Jill, there are several sites where you can find embroidery cards at better prices than in stores. The Brother Brand name is also compatible with BabyLock cards, as well as White, and Singer. I found a lot of this information by simply doing many searches for embroidery cards. Many people ask why I don't use the floppy disks or also the freebies off the internet. The main reason is there are zillions on the internet, and I don't have the time. I do a lot of embroidery on my machine, and put money into the cards that are versatile enough to get used often. I also combine many things from different designs. Your machine should most likely allow you to do that. I have yet to get tired of doing it that way, and if I had enough time, I could sure use it even more than I do. .I hate to spend time on the internet searching for that perfect design, and use it once, when I could be using that same time at my machine:-) I have ten grandchildren, plus one on the way, so I use my machine for a real variety of things. Try doing searches for the cards, and you will find many places to try. I think you will be surprised. I know I was. I can also post a few links as well, just have to go into my favorites and locate them for you. There are also newgroups for embroidery machines too. I even bought some quilting embroidery cards from a girl I met online, and those have been wonderful to use. Is this machine new?? Good luck, Karen.

If you are new to this, make sure if you order that you know your format, depending on your machine. The info given will tell you what is compatible. Have fun. I have more websites too, but if I remember correctly, this one has a ton of these cards. Don't limit yourself to browsing only Brother, because other brands will work as well. Karen

Thanks Karen! Yes, it is a new machine. It the Brother PE 170D. It's a cheap one but my husband and I love Disney and it will be fun to make our own embroidered shirts for our annual trip to Disney World. I'm also planning on getting the Cat & Dog cards to make things for the animal rescues I work with for their raffles and other fundraisers.

Hi Jill, did you find any cards on that website that interested you? Sometimes I just go back several times before I buy a few new ones. I had bought a few a year ago in the spring, and never got to use them, as my husband became quite ill with pancreatic cancer. He died in January of this year. So, I have lots of new things to get back to. How big is your hoop size? 5 x 7?? The Disney characters are really neat, but I figured the grandkids would outgrow that, and it is only on the Brother machines. Baby Lock is very user friendly, and I really love this machine. I hope to be doing a lot of things in the near future. When I get going with projects, it really takes up a lot of space. Good hunting, Karen
