Is this a reputable site? Just want to make sure I won't get any computer viruses or paypal hacking if I place an order.

Do you know about the quality of the designs?

thanks.

I think the .ru extension indicates that the site server is in Russia? I usually block sites with the .ru extension from accessing my site because of spam. I could be soooooooo wrong about this, but you might want to check that out.

They are located in Russia and for us in the US to buy the Disney designs it is a copyright violation so order at your own risk. I don't do business with any companies outside the US. With the exception of Embird.

They have many designs that are not Disney.

They used to have some free designs, but their stuff has a tendency to be bulletproof. I buy from Hatched in Africa and Embird (both of whom are non U.S. companies), but only use paypal. I never buy from Russia. They are the wild wild west of internet crooks.

I only buy designs from known, reputable digitizing companies.

Viruses can come into a computer and/or sewing machine from infected designs.

If you give it a try, definitely let us know how it goes.

Sorry, but being a German (outside of the US ...) I already had some problems with quiltingwolf's statement about not making business with non-US companies. But I think now it's necessary to raise my voice:

There is NO way, an embroidery design can be infected by a computer virus! You can infect your computer in various ways, with trojans, viruses, and other malware: For example by opening files which are causing code to be executed: screen savers, Office docs with macros, executables, even by visiting suspicious web sites ... embroidery files are pure data files, they don't hold code a computer can execute, and even if someone would hide an executable inside a design file e. g. by renaming an executable: The software to open this design would not execute the hidden code.

Of course purchasing / downloading files from suspicious sources is always a risk, and your computer may be infected one way or the other ... but not by a design file.

Best is to have a virus protection installed and up-to-date, and most important: Think before you click!

Thank you for your post, StitchBuddy, because this is good information for us to know.

I buy from Hatched in Africa (South Africa) so am not afraid to purchase from outside the U.S. Likewise, there are some "inside" the U.S. designs that I avoid because I do not know anything about the digitizer or their reputation. Better safe than sorry.

I wasn't the one who said about viruses. Also Disney designs are legal here except if you have a Brother machine. Also about doing business with counties overseas I just heard too many horror stories about credit card theft etc. I wasn't saying all European companies were bad. But why buy something overseas I can get right here?

I have used quite a few of their designs including their free designs. I have never had a problem with Paypal payment or their designs.
