I need some advice about embroidering pockets for tee shirts. The kind of pockets you cut from fabric and add to your plain tee shirt. I bought my ULT 2003 new but have not used it much, I used to have a box for downloading to a card for this machine but the box is long gone, possibly lost during a move. What kind of box do I need to buy in order to be able to download designs for this machine. I do have an external floppy drive on our older computer but would rather buy blank cards and a box. Thanks for any help...I am new on this site.

I have a Brother Ult 2003; I had a very hard time just finding a card-I ended up by purchasing the box and card when I upgraded to PE Design. Personally, I prefer the floppy and disks-mainly, I can put more designs on a floppy, but only one design on the card. I love my machine-both for sewing and for embroidery. I wish you luck in your pursuit.

What do you want to know about making pockets? Something here may help.

As for the reader/writer and card, PED Basic.

What is the best fabric type to use for the pocket? I will want to embroider a monogram on it. I want it to lay flat after washing.

I do not know anything about upgrading to PE design. Sorry I hate sounding like an idiot but I have always just used my machine to sew or used the built in stitches or cards.

Didn't say anything about PE Design.

Take an old t-shirt and practice. Try removing the original pocket, do the embroidery then re-attach.

You can get a program called PE Basic that has the reader writer box and card you need. It is going to be a couple hundred dollas I think. Personally with my 2002ULT (basically same as your machine) I bouht a usb connected floppy reader writer box off the internet and buy floppy disks whenever I find them. Much cheaper and just as good -or better because you can write on the floppy. The Brother cards are expensive!
Always back up your designs!
