Hi all you wonderful Cuties. Wonder if you could help me please. I am looking for a FREE Conversion program as well as a free Digitizing program. Please help!!!

Thredworks is a free digitizing program. I have not tried it yet. There are many free designs to look at and try (have used some) and many tutorials for help.
The other 2 will help convert your files.

Thanks a lot Pam. I am going to have a look at all the suggestions I get.

You can try Stitch era universal for a free digitizing program. The system requirements are for Windows XP or Vista.
I ordered it from the link below, but I think I had to pay about $7.50 for shipping the CD.

You can download Stitch Era Universal free from a number of sites. Just do a search for Stitch Era Universal, can also be used to open and convert almost any machine format. Wilcom Truesizer is a very good conversion program. There is also Bernina Artlink, Wings My Editor,Pulse Ambassador and Amazing Designs Edit Express Lite all free. I do not have the links but a search for any of them by name will get you what you want. I usually use True Sizer because it is faster than Era but Era opens more formats.

I think there is a free program called SophieSew, but I do believe it requires you to be online to use it. That is, it's on your computer, but it has to connect to it's site to actually digitize. This may not be a problem, except for those who have to pay for internet by the hour, or have some kind of download limit. This is the only one I know of that's free. Best of luck to you, hugs, Marji

Marji thanks a lot. Luckily I don't have to pay by the hour.

sorry I can't help you with a free digitizing program. I know there is one out there but can't remember the name of it.
