  1. Thank you for the design. I ordered your magazine which of I bought many years mostly over the counter. The special was to be a free introductory issue and then to cancel the subscription if I did not want it. However what I received was a bill and it said pay first then get the magazine. If I did not love your work so well I would not subscribe. I hope you did not do this to others!!

    • Hi Dorothy,

      I’m sorry you experienced that. It must have been a mixup with subscription fulfillment. That is not our policy and I apologize for the inconvenience.

  2. I have tried several times to download the chick embroideries above in the PES format and keep getting the message “File Corrupt”. Can you help me? I love the designs and would love to have them in my embroidery library. I make a lot of children’s clothing for needy children in my county. I can see these designs used on gowns, bibs, baby blankets. etc.

    • Hi Bonnie,

      It sounds like the file might have gotten corrupted on your computer when you first downloaded the file, which can persist if you don’t clear your cache. I’d first recommend trying to download the file using a different internet browser. If that doesn’t work or isn’t an option, I’d try clearing your Temporary Internet Files. This is usually an option under “Internet Options” or “Privacy Options.” Good luck!

  3. Much better issue this time! Looking more like the days when you gave us heirlooms to make that will never go out of style. I love things for babies done in patterns and fabric that look like babies and not adults! Many thanks!

  4. Why can’t I get these precious chick designs to download and open on my 3D program? Any hints or ideas will be most appreciated.

  5. Thanks so much for these adorable designs. My 81 year old aunt who taught me to sew when I was 12 recommended Sew Beautiful to me tonight. I am delighted that she did! My only disappointment is that I won’t receive my first issue until March; can’t wait!
