Q: What happens if I have a free design in my
shopping basket and don't check out of the
website before the design returns to regular
price?A: The design stays in
your shopping basket, and the prices change. For
example, imagine that you add a free design to
your basket on July 15th, and the design is
free through July 31st. On August 1st you
return to the website and check your shopping
basket. A note in red will appear on the top
advising you that prices in your basket have
changed, and you'll see that the free design is
no longer free. Purchase the design if you wish,
or remove it from your basket. Our advice is that you add free designs to your
shopping basket and check out of the site fast,
before you forget about 'em!
many free designs are there, and how often are
there new ones?A: There are usually two free designs each
month. We post new free designs around the
first of each month. Generally the designs are
free through the last day of the month, but
there are some exceptions. Look for the "free
through" date posted near each free design.
Q: Are the free designs archived, and can I
download designs from previous months?
A: No, there are no archives of free
designs. After a design is free for one month, it's
moved into the "for sale" departments. Free designs are
offered so that people who are new to

Q: Can I sell things with Embroidery Library
designs -- including the free designs?
A: Yes, you certainly can -- and we
wish you much success! When you order a design
from Embroidery Library you're actually getting a license. That
license dictates what you can and cannot do with
the design. Here are the licensing terms and
policy:When you purchase a design from the Embroidery

not be transferred to anyone else, in any
