What We Do

Since 2001, our company has been creating high-quality machine embroidery designs for home embroiderers.

All of our files are downloadable, meaning that once you purchase, you can use your designs almost immediately.
 Today we are a leader in the embroidery design market with more than 150,000 unique designs for sale.

100% Employee Owned

Embroidery Library has been a 100% employee-owned company since 2006. When you support our company, you are supporting people and families just like you.

 Our entire team brings the passion and purpose of ownership to work with them each and every day. We are a creative design company, and we love sharing that creative journey with you.

Made by In-House Artists

From design concept, to design creation, all of our art is created by a small team of in-house artists and digitizers. We value creative ownership, and digitize only original works of art that you can't find anywhere else.

We have many decades of on-the-job experience among our artists and digitizers. We enjoy working with one another, we laugh often, and we love seeing our designs come to life through your creations shared on social media. 

Based in Minnesota, But Global

We are located in a suburb of Minneapolis, Minnesota, but our designs speak to customers across the globe. From Germany to Australia, we've created a community of machine embroiderers who share our passion for quality and creativity.

Connect with customers like you by joining the Official Embroidery Library & Urban Threads Machine Embroidery Community on Facebook.

We Care About Quality - felt fabric with employee

We Care About Quality

Each design we create goes through rigorous testing before it is ever made available for sale on our site. The images you see are test stitch outs (as opposed to digital renderings). Since every size of every design is individually digitized, we stitch out every size to ensure that density and other factors of quality live up to our standards. If a design doesn't pass our quality control checks, we don't sell it, period.

You might be amused by the lengths we go to in order to perfect designs, but it is no laughing matter to us. We order 140 yards of fabric for testing every six months! We want to be certain that home stitchers will achieve the same results that we do.
