Do you offer hand embroidery designs?

No. The designs that I offer are for machine embroidery only. You must have an embroidery machine to sew out the designs.

What embroidery formats do you offer?

On each design page you will find the formats offered. Generally, I offer dst, exp, jef, hus, pes, shv, vip, vp3 and xxx. Many are being converted to art format and will be added soon.

What size hoop do you offer?

On each design page you will find the hoop size offered for that set. Generally, I offer 4x4, 5x7 6x10 and larger sizes for block designs.

I only have 4x4 hoop size. Can I reduce your larger designs to fit?

I do not ever recommend reducing any designs more that 3 percent. I want you to have a wonderful sew out and I cannot guarantee the quality if you alter or resize the designs more than that.

Where can I find the color charts for my order?

Color charts are available on the webpage as a download link or included in the zipped file. I am in the process of adding all color charts to the webpages.

How do I order? How do I receive my order?

Ordering is simple and easy. Once you have selected a design set just add it to the shopping cart. When you are ready to check out you can select two options: Paypal Express for those with paypal accounts or the credit card option. Once the order process is complete you will be returned back to the download page to auto download your designs. You will also be sent an email with download links as well. Make sure you have your pop up blocker turned off. Please add orders@juliasneedledesigns.com to your email contacts to prevent emails being blocked.


I ordered using my IPAD? I cannot download my order? Why?

All IPAD users can download by using a program called https://www.dropbox.com Or you can access your download link by regular PC.


Are your designs in zipped format? How do I access a zipped file?

Yes, all designs will be in a zipped file format for auto download. Once downloaded you can access the file by right clicking the saved file and opening with Windows Explorer. Your computer may have an auto extract program built in. Check your computer help menu for more information.

I placed an order but is not in my history?

Please make sure that you sign in before you order. This will create a history of your order in the database. If you forget to log in please do not worry. I only keep records for two years. In rare instances where the website experiences a crash the order may not record or record correctly.

Can you add my order to my history?

Please make sure that you sign in before you order as I am not able to manually add an order to your history. I do keep records of all purchases up to two years if you need them.

I cannot remember my password and I am asked to answer a question "nil"?

Please contact me if this happens and I will manually assign you a new password. Nil simply means "nothing". The database has no secret question on file that will enable you to reset your password.

I cannot log in. It says that my email is already in use?

Please contact me for a new temp password. orders@juliasneedledesigns.com

I ordered duplicate designs. Can you refund?

Absolutely, but I need to know within 7 days. I can also exchange for a different set.  After seven days I will only offer a store credit. This does not apply to free sets.

Do you offer custom digitizing?

No. At this time I do not. I will take special requests though.

May I share your designs with my friends to save money?

No. That is illegal and really just not very nice. My prices are so low that almost everyone can afford my designs. I offer tons of free designs and regularly offer free sets. So really there is no reason to share. So please don't. I will find out and you will be placed on an industry ban list.

The quality of my design/s is guaranteed unless they have been in any way edited, altered, or resized.  Julia's Needle Designs are tested on multiple machines. Some machines perform differently than others so be sure to keep this in mind when sewing out your design. I always recommend a test sew. Please review your machine manual for correct hoop size before ordering.

NOTE: You are purchasing a digital machine embroidery file, not a finished, physical item. You must download the file to your computer, unzip the file and have a way to transfer the design/s to your embroidery machine. All design formats and sizes are included in a single zip file. Due to the digital nature of this product, all sales are final. Due to the many computer operating systems and embroidery programs I cannot offer support in those areas.

This design/s is for single purchase only. You are not allowed to sell, share, give away, or alter the design/s. All rights reserved by Julia's Needle Designs.©
