Continuing the Monthly Free Design Series with art from Sanqunetti Designs, our friend Lisa created a ‘March’ design for you to download! This time, the name of the month is decked out with shamrocks and a leprechaun hat in the spirit of St Patrick’s Day.

When you open a stitch file that supports thread colors with Embrilliance, the color list in the bottom right shows the colors selected by the digitizer. These colors are their suggestion, but you can choose whatever colors from your thread stash that suit your fancy.

Embrilliance allows you to magically convert their thread brand to one you set as your preferred brand. To set your preferred brand, click the Thread button in the Properties pane as seen below to open the Thread Brand Conversion dialog.

From the thread brand pulldown menu, choose your favorite thread, clicking the “Use this as my Preferred Brand” button. The next time you open a design, all you have to do is click on the Preferred button in the Color tab as shown above to convert all the thread colors to selections in your Preferred brand! Because each thread brands its own particular selection of colors, these matches may not be exact, though they can give you a great head start for selecting similar colors for your design.

The design is provided in our native .BE format, enabling you to save a stitch file for any embroidery machine. If you aren’t already an Embrilliance owner, we provide a free method to use our software called Express Mode that will not only allow you to use any of the wonderful free designs found in our project blog, but also enables you to install and create basic text treatments with fonts distributed in our popular .BX format produced by many embroidery design creators.
