Machine embroidery designs?  
My Mom just gifted me a Brother embroidery machine. So. Cool. Now of course, all I want to do are geeky embroidery designs!

I've been searching, but haven't found any who-related ones. Does anyone know of any embroidery designs (.PES files) out there?

If not, it looks like I'll be getting design software next...

Is there a conversion program? I seem to think there is. I know I got a dice bag from a place where, if they could find it on the internet, they could embroider it on your bag.

I am SO jealous.

I don't know where you could find those files, but I'm sure there is a conversion program out there.

Maybe some will turn up?

I asked my mom, because she is actually a machine embroiderer. She says if you search for "doctor who machine embroidery" you might be able to find some, and if not you'd have to digitize it yourself. But a caveat: if there aren't any easy to find, there probably aren't any that are licensed, so be careful about selling things with them. If it's just for you though, it shouldn't be a problem.
We also found this craftster tread, which also mentions this group: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=337249.0

I have not found any on the web. The only Doctor Who fan embroidered things I've seen are the one I and shaebay have made. I digitized my own. I have not asked Shaybay but I think she digitized hers as well.

BBC is not likely to authorize commercial designs featuring the good Doctor, so yes, I'd suggest you look into digitizing software, but be warned, it's not cheap.

Just FYI - They don't have any Who-themed designs, but Urban Threads has a lot of really cool stuff...and occasional freebies!

Mine stuff is the craftster post linked above, and yes, I digitize my own designs. I have SewArt and it was $75 for the program. It's really good though, I love it.
