Infant hooded robes are back on Embroider This and Wholesale Linens. The robes are our own design, made of thirsty 100% cotton terry with pink- or blue-striped accents. While they look great as is, you can add your own personal touch by adding a design or name.

Have you ever wondered how Sarah transforms those wonderful free designs from a graphic image to a machine embroidery design? It is a process called digitizing, which converts a graphic image into the machine-readable file that your embroidery machine can use to stitch out the design.

Digitizing is a mixture of art and science, and can take years to master. For digitizing our free designs, we rely on the proven expertise of our partners at Universal Digitizing. Using more than 100 years of combined experience, along with the latest in digitizing software, Universal Digitizing offers true value:  exceptional custom digitizing service at a very affordable price.

Imagine the ability to take your graphic image or personal artwork and stitch on your embroidery machine! Universal Digitizing will take your image from a flat graphic file to a dazzling three-dimensional embroidery file. Their website is easy to use, and they maintain a friendly and knowledgeable staff to help you through the process from start to finish. Universal Digitizing offers free quotes and a published flat rate fee structure that is based on the number of stitches in your design, so there are no surprises. In addition, they offer the ability to store custom profiles in your account, and an archiving system that allows you to access your digitized designs for six months after your order is complete.

And remember, it’s not only graphics that can be transformed by Universal Digitizing. Have you ever thought of creating embroidery from a photograph? Take a look at the beautiful flower design on the front page of the Universal Digitizing website. That was created from a photo! Imagine creating embroidery from a treasured photographic image – a scenic landmark from a special vacation, Grandpa’s treasured antique auto, or Dad’s boat. With your images and the digitizing skills of Universal Digitizing, the embroidery possibilities are endless!
