CME Machine Embroidery Designs


  • Right click on to the highlighted link for the design.
  • Click on the "SAVE LINK AS". This will bring up a dialog box asking where you would like to save the files.
  • Design files must be saved on a USB or Flash drive.
  • Plug the USB or Flash drive onto your computer and save the design files.
  • Once designs have been saved, take the USB or Flash Drive out of your computer or laptop and install it into your embroidery machine.
  • While on the embroidery machine find the recently saved embroidery design.
  • Select the desired design you wish to use make any adjustments and then begin embroidering.* 

Please note:

*All embroidery machines operate a little differently when it comes to design files. Some require you to name the files with specific letters, numbers etc. Due to the large number of embroidery machines out there we cannot answer every technical question on machines. If you have questions about your particular embroidery sewing machine model, the type of file it uses, or other technical questions please contact your nearest neighborhood dealer.

Thank you!

ITH Cork Gift Card Holder
I also cannot find the link for this project. I found the design at Interweave, but it isn't free.
Why do the designs have to go on a flash drive?
I can send designs wirelessly from my computer using BES4--why do I have to put them on a flash drive?

Where are the free embroidery designs for the issure. The cozy snowman stocking for one.
designs, where are they
complicated, can't seem to download anything.How do I see the designs
Border Button Down Milinda Jay Stephenson
This downloaded design definitely has issues. Besides what cmlenart posted, I've tried to resize the design to fit my shirt and some of the satin stitching on the eyelets disappears leaving only the underlay stitch. Also, the picket fence line (second line up from the bottom of the design) has a weird jog in two places on the left side. Very disappointed in this design. This is one of the few recent projects that I wanted to do. I've always had good luck with CME designs, but not this time. Please fix before the free offer expires!
Border Button Down Milinda Jay Stephenson
The downloaded design has issues. Some of the eyelets in the design are not the same sizs, making the pattern look poorly stitched.
Anyone doing this project, you must purchase the Cat Face they tell you how page 58 of the Jan./Feb. 2019 issue under DESIGN. Hope this will help those who are having a problem with this issue.
Where is the Jan/Feb 2019 Digital Issue?
When I click on the Current Digital Issue I get November/December 2018.
I have the Viking Rose Machine. I have not been able to transfer any of your free designs to my machine. I can download (Iuse a flash drive) and when I put insert into the machine, I get a folder with a question mark. This has happened every time I download from your website. Needless to say, I have lost a lot of very cute designs. What am I doing wrong?
Where is the embroidery download?
I, too, am having an issue with downloading the Meow Pouch design. It is nowhere to be found. I am a subscriber of the magazine and would appreciate being able to make the project. Thank you for your help.
Meow Pouch Freebie
The face is not there to download. I subscribe to the paper mag and it said it was available
Meow Pouch Embroidery Desgin
When downloading the Meow Pouch freebie - there is no embroidery design for the face.. where do I find this?
Embroidery Designs
I am very disappointed on not being able to download your embroidery designs recently. I have been a subscriber for many years and it was so much easier. I can no longer download your designs. I will not continue my subscription when it expires.
design needed now
the design for the meow pouch will not come up so I can download the design, I need it NOW
Cat purse
The cat purse is adorable, so where do I get the pattern for the embroidered face?
Designs are corrupted
I can only download the Ornate Skate design. When I download the others I cannot open them. The names of the designs inside the zip file start with a period, underscore, then the name of the design . I don't think it's appropriate to begin a design with a period. My windows says its corrupt and can't open it.
Also doesn't recognize I am a subscriber!
I finally get in and it tells me I must purchase the issue - and I am a subscriber and have been for several years. Very disappointing.
Log In not functional either
I can't get the patterns because the log in link doesn't work. Luckily I got in by logging in here! I've called the help number and was told to call a different number who said they couldn't help. I emailed support and never got a call back. I've not been able to access the last couple issues patterns. I will not be renewing.
Santa Wrap
I did everything your directions said to do and sill was not able to download the Santa Wrap Design. It used to be so easy to download your designs. One of the perks of being a magazine subscriber. Please help me to down load this design into me embroidery softwear so I can use it.
No PES files on some of the free designs form my EMB mag.
How do I get answers to my comments.
Freebe designs
I have always enjoyed this Magazine and all the free downloads that come with it. However in the Nov/Dec issue you have to purchase added portions of the designs. I'm confused.
