Sites of Where to Find Thousands of Free Machine Embroidery Designs

 I have collated a list of designers from around the web that offer free machine embroidery designs for instant download. Each designer can be linked to directly from this post, where you can then browse their free machine embroidery designs and download them to your device.

Some are available to download in all formats, some only in the format you require. You may need to register on some of the sites before you can download the freebies, but registration is free.

If you know other designers that should be showcased here, please leave a comment at the end of this post so that I can add them to this list!
