Can I sell items stitched with
Embroidery Library designs?
You are most welcome to sell items that are embroidered with Embroidery
Library designs. However, the design files may not be sold, shared, or
distributed in any manner.
We're an employee-owned company, and all of the designs that you see at
our site were drawn and digitized by us. When you purchase a design,
you're actually purchasing a license to embroider the design in an
embroidery machine. The design
remains the property of Embroidery Library, Inc.
The license allows you to embroider the design in an embroidery machine and use it in a variety
of ways, including personal use, sale for profit, donation to charity,
and gifts. If you want to stitch our designs and sell the stitched items
at craft shows and fairs, or through a website, that's excellent! We
wish you much success.
The license prohibits selling, sharing, trading, or distributing the
digital file. Please do not share the designs. If your friend or family
member wants one of our designs, have him/her come to our site
buy a license for the design.
You are allowed to edit
the design in any manner that you choose, but the edited design file is
also copyrighted by Embroidery Library, Inc. It cannot be
distributed, shared, or sold.
If you have questions about the above, let us know! Send an email to
