Great Places for Embroidery Fonts and Designs

I spend hours searching the internet for all kinds of things!  When I got into embroidery I was looking for the least expensive designs and fonts.  I'd love to share some of my favorites with you!  I will update this frequently when I have new finds.

  1.  8 Claws and a Paw - they have fonts from $2.95 that includes multiple sizes (usually 1 in, 2 in, 3 in and 4 in).  They also offer a month subscription to download any fonts they offer on their site.  What a deal!  They update their fonts regularly.
  2. Jolson's Designs - fonts are only $3 and include multiple sizes (usually 1 in, 2 in, 3 in and 4 in). They give you the heads up if letters in their 4" set may need a 5" x 7" hoop, which is helpful.
  3. AK Designs Boutique - very cute & trendy fonts, and her designs are exceptional.  Like her page on Faecebook and get alerts for sales!  They also have a yahoo group that is extremely helpful and Angie, owner, is an active participant and she offers free monthly designs here as well.

  1. Planet Applique - this site has the cutest applique designs and they start at just $.99!  Wow!  They also have a Yahoo Group that is very helpful and they offer monthly freebie designs there too.

  1. Embroider This! - over 200 free embroidery designs and affordable embroidery blanks.  They have a sister site Wholesale Linens that offers the same embroidery blanks but at wholesale prices but you have to have a tax ID# and must complete the wholesale application.


  1. This is OUTSTANDING... I've wasted hours searching... I am in love with 8 paws-- Will check out the others! Thx again.


  2. The development of machine embroidery and its mass production came about in stages in the Industrial Revolution. The earliest machine embroidery used a combination of machine looms and teams of women embroidering the textiles by hand. This was done in France by the mid-1800s.[9] The manufacture of machine-made embroideries in St. Gallen in eastern Switzerland flourished in the latter half of the 19th century .....
