What you need is a conversion product. If you already have an embroidery machine, you may also have a catalog program, such as CatalogXpress where you can convert, edit, view and catalog your collection.

If not, then Wilcom True Sizer is the only free program now available.

Maybe it depends on what Martha Stuart just considers Singer or Viking formats? That actually could vary a whole lot even.

Do you know exactly what that is? I'm guessing it might be some sort of ones like .hus, .vip, maybe .xxx or even possible .fhe now? But I don't really know, and they should really say that specific, someplace on it, in it's advertising and really even on the outside of any packaging, and not have it just only hidden on the inside at all, and bve a surprise at all, where you would only find out later, after paying for it.

Just because it's always a bummer if you buy some collection of embroidery designs from someplace, and then find out, there is no way to get those to work with a machine you have. It's kind of expensive and money wasteful to do that too. I have done that before, but only just once. I think a lot of people have actually done that kind of thing before too sometimes.

But if it was even just those very few formats, any of them at all, that would not prevent you from using even some more free kind of conversion program to convert to some kind of embroidery file format that you could use at all. Wilcom's little free program is not the only one at all. And if Martha really just stuck some embroidery designs onto there in only even the Singer Futura .fhe format for some weird reason, that Wilcom program still could not even open a more converted to Singer Futura kind of .fhe file at all.

But you still could with instead even with Compucon's little free conversion software tool, as it reads and converts from Stitch and Sew .che file format instead. And a Singer Futura .fhe file is a .che file, just with a different 3 character prefix in the end of it instead. So if you want or need to open a Singer Futura kind of .fhe file and don't have anyway to do that, you can just re-name it a .che kind of embroidery file instead, and then open it and use it in some other kind of Compucon made software instead most times. At least as only a stitch only, expanded kind of file. Not sure what kind of file format your Babylock machine might want from you, but maybe a .pes kind of file might be fine there. So you could always do that, that way too.

I would think Martha would actually want as many people as possible to buy her embroidery designs, no matter what kind of machine they had. Just because it's good business for her and Viking and Singer too.
