Brother's iBroidery.com website publishes free embroidery designs and projects each month, such as the winter-themed circular embroidery pattern and winter wonderland coaster project that were available in December 2015. All of iBroidery.com's free designs are embroidery patterns that are available as digital downloads in PEN format. PEN files are exclusively read by Brother embroidery machines.
Users need an online account with Brother to access each month's free design and any other free patterns the company may offer. Login information is also required to purchase any of more than 7,000 embroidery designs sold through the iBroidery.com website. These patterns, which include licensed Disney designs, nautically themed illustrations, alphabet patterns and scenery, are priced between about $5 and $10, as of 2016.
Visitors do not need an account to access iBroidery.com's free monthly projects that accompany each free design. Dozens of other archived embroidery projects are also freely available at Brother-USA.com, including projects that use Disney embroidery designs from iBroidery.com, home decor, jewelry and embroidered greeting cards. Brother's Foot of the Month project often complements iBroidery.com's free project and design. For example, the winter wonderland place setting project from December 2015 completes the holiday table setting when paired with the same month's coaster project and design. Foot of the Month projects are freely accessible and are archived on the Brother website.
