In addition to the files for your machine, the downloaded ZIP files may contain instructions, thread color and stitch tables. You will need to "unzip" the ZIP files.

We offer our files in common embroidery machine formats: art, dst, exp, pes, vp3, hus, jef. You will probably need to save the file in your format to a USB stick on your computer. Then insert it into the embroidery machine. Newer machines transfer the files via WLAN, older ones via floppy disk or cable. Read in any case in the manual of your embroidery machine after.

Sometimes something does not go as planned when converting the files. No problem: In the ZIP file on your computer is also a "picture folder" in which each embroidery picture in the original and the used thread colors can be seen.
