Let’s take a look at some useful tools, designed just for you, for getting those embroidery files ready to stitch and onto your embroidery machine!
When you design your own embroidery in mySewnet , subdesign elements such as Lettering, SuperDesigns, Frames, and Embellishments like Ribbon, Yarn and String of Beads are initially open, or changeable, design elements.
In the Embroidery module/app, open elements have green corner handles on their select box to indicate properties can be adjusted while retaining their quality.
- If you design your own Cross Stitcher embroideries, the .krz file types are also fully editable.
- And in mySewnet Digitizing .edo files (plus the .edo files from ExpressDesign in mySewnet Embroidery module), also retain flexibility for editing.
To save a ‘working file’ for your original creations with open objects, just Save or Save As from the File tab or Quick Access toolbar in Windows™, or from the Actions menu or File menu in Mac™.
- When working in the Embroidery module, the Save (Save As) file type is .vp4, a special file that retains the ability to adjust any design or subdesign with green corner handles on its select box.
- In Digitizing / Create, the working file type is an .edo file.
- In Cross Stitcher, it’s a .krz file.
TIP: Whenever you design something unique, it’s wise to back up a ‘work in progress’ with Save or Save As, in case you later want to change it up!
One of the fabulous benefits of designing yourself is being able to reopen and remake something as many times as your heart desires without losing any quality in your final result!
Once you reopen saved working files, it’s a breeze to change up open elements like names or other words, Ribbon, Bead or Yarn Embellish designs you’ve created yourself in the Embellish tab, and of course, Cross Stitcher designs saved as krz files, or Digitizing / Create .edo files you designed yourself.
Finalizing for Embroidery Machines
You’ve finished your new creation, and saved a working file type. The next question is, how do you get it to your own personal embroidery machine?
Here are some popular options for finalizing and transferring design files!
Export is in the Quick Access menu or File tab in Windows, and in the Actions button in the main toolbar or the File menu in Mac, for mySewnet Embroidery software.
Export closes and finalizes the open embroidery elements in your working design so it’s ready to use on any embroidery machine. If you don’t have a mySewnet wi-fi connectibile embroidery machine, Export and save or copy to a USB stick to transfer the finished design to your machine.
Export offers multiple file types for most embroidery machines.
For detailed steps and explanation of how to Export, open the Help system and search for Export!

Send to mySewnet Cloud
If you own an embroidery machine with mySewnet wi-fi connectibility, when you aren’t ready to stitch immediately, simply send your embroidery design into the Cloud, and then select it later from your mySewnet wi-fi embroidery machine’s file menu.
Send to mySewnet connected Machine
Once your mySewnet wi-fi enabled machine is powered on, connected to internet, and logged into your personal mySewnet account, you can send a design directly to the screen of any embroidery machine listed in the Send to mySewnet menu. Sending directly to a machine is great when you want to stitch it now, but not add it to the Cloud or the machine’s files.
TIP: You can also send to other computers logged into your account! Great if you design on both Mac™ and Windows™ PCs.
