Placing an order through the website

Embroidery Library has more than 100,000 designs for embroidery machines. Browse through the category links on the left, or use the search box to find designs in a style or theme that you enjoy.

When choosing designs, keep your machine's limitations in mind. Know the maximum size that it can stitch. If you don't know your machine's size and stitch limitations, you can reference this list.

The sizes and stitch counts of the designs are shown on the website.


Most of the designs are available in more than one size, so if you need a smaller size, chances are one is available. To find alternate sizes, click on the link near the design. That's circled below for you:

Select the format for your machine. If you don't know the format, you can check our list right here.

Then, click the "Add to Basket" button.


You'll be routed to your basket where you can see the design inside. You can continue shopping and add more designs to your basket, or place your order.

When you're ready to place your order, review the items in your basket. Do you have the right size? Make any changes before completing your order. Then, choose to pay with credit card or with PayPal.

We accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, and PayPal.

When paying with a credit card, enter your card information and click the "Accept Charges" button.


After your charge is approved (which takes only a few seconds) you can download the designs. Instructions for downloading are on the HELP page.

If you're new to Embroidery Library, order a free design! That way you can become familiar with the ordering and downloading process.

If you have questions about the above, let us know! Send an email to stitch@emblibrary.com.
