What machine formats are available?
I offer my design sets in eleven major machine formats: art v3, dst, exp, hus, jef, pcs, pes, sew, vip, vp3 and xxx . Please note that .sew and .pcs formats are
not available for 5x7 designs. In cases where both 4x4 and 5x7 sizes are included in one set, you will receive the format ordered in the 4x4 size and .pes in the 5x7 size. All ELEVEN formats are now available for instant download!
Will your designs work on my machine?
Please note that I
am unable to advise on specific machines and software. However, if you have a way to get designs FROM your computer TO your embroidery machine,
and your machine accepts one of the formats that we offer, then the answer is yes. You will need the appropriate
hardware/software to use these designs. Examples include your embroidery software, a reader/writer box such as Magic or Amazing box, etc. My designs are offered via download and CD only.
I do not offer 3x5 floppy discs. You must know your machine's
hoop capabilities as well. Any of our designs that are
for "jumbo" hoops only, *specifically say jumbo* in the product
I don't know what format I need..do you?
Your best bet is to check your manual or with your dealer. Here is a handy chart however of common machine brands and formats:

I purchased these in 4x4 and need them enlarged/reduced etc. Can you do that?
Unfortunately, this falls within the realm of custom work and I am unable to do that at this time. The designs are only available in the sizes which they were released in. However, there are many good editing programs on the market..or your specific software may allow you to enlarge/reduce. I recommend
NOT change the design size more than 20% to maintain the integrity of the design. Please be advised that if you do edit or resize your designs, you do so at your own risk. Designs by JuJu is only responsible for the quality of the files that we provide you.
I have two embroidery machines. Can I purchase my designs in two formats?Our system only allows one format to be selected for instant download. If you have more than one machine and need two different formats, you will need to order your designs on CD. Our CDs are multi-formatted with all of the major formats. We are no longer able to add extra formats manually to orders due to increased requests. You must order the CD. If you have made purchases in the past and need them now in a diferent format, it is not necessary to re-purchase the designs, just the CD for $6.95. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org You may still instantly download your designs in the format you ordered to have while you wait for your CD.
Do you sell single designs?
Single designs are sold for $4.00 each.
There is a link on each design set page that leads to the page
to purchase the singles. Email us at email@example.com
if you are unable to locate what you are looking for.
What is applique? How is it done? Is it hard?
Applique is FUN and EASY. All of our machine applique designs are 100% manually punched. You can find a step by step photo tutorial
What software do you use to create your designs?
I use a variety of
quality digitizing software packages to create my designs, depending upon what effect I am hoping to achieve. All designs are 100% manually digitized by me and tested as many times as necessary to bring you a high quality design.
Can you tell me what designs I have already purchased?
It is best to keep your designs purchased from various vendors organized in folders so you can find what you are looking for and know from whom you purchased various designs.
You can now look up your previous orders and redownload them by logging into your account located at the top of the header of the website.
My hard drive crashed. I lost all of my designs. Can you resend them please?
We understand how frustrating it is when one runs into computer troubles.
Please SAVE your designs and back them up to avoid losing them in the unfortunate event of a hard drive crash. Thanks!
We now have the ability on our site for you to look up and download your previous orders as far back as 2005.
To do so, simply log in to your account by clicking the "my
account" link in the upper right hand corner. We are unable to look up and replace any design orders made prior to 2005.
I received my designs via download or in my email. The colors are all funky and are nothing like shown on your website!
Regarding the colors being off or "weird", this is not uncommon at all due to the fact that each format has it's own color palette...and they can be quite different from one format to another. Therefore, often times upon conversion, the original colors of the designs will change and vary from format to format. Again, this is totally normal, and the reason why color charts are provided with each design set.
If you follow the color chart provided, the design will stitch out in the appropriate colors. This is how I sew out all of my designs.If you would like for your designs to show the correct colors on your embroidery machine screen, there are programs that you can change the colors in so they will show up with the thread brands you use etc. I like Embird and Designers Gallery ColorWorks.I hope that this helps some. If you have any further questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to email me! firstname.lastname@example.org
What brand of thread do you recommend?
I digitize in and use only Robison Anton Super Brite Polyester thread. I have found this to be a wonderful thread..strong and beautiful.
I also have started to use Floriani polyester and like that just
as much as Robison Anton. You can get it several places online including:
Of course, there are many great threads available on the market. You may mix and match threads and use whatever you like. I just personally prefer Robison Anton Super Brite Polyester, and that is the brand from which I use my digitizing color palette.
Where do you get that varigated
Sock Monkey thread?
We use Floriani FuFu #11 for that
textured effect. You can get it at
Where can I find that awesome
Sock Monkey fabric for the appliques?
The sock monkey fabric we use is
from the Funky Monkey collection by Moda.
We get ours at fabric.com
