THE STORY OF OUR CHAPTER LOGO
Helaine designed the Chatelaine above for our Chapter Volunteers to wear at the 2016 Manatee Co Fair because they need to use "Fair issued" name tags instead of their Chapter Name Tags. When Helaine showed it to us at our 2015 Annual Meeting, we were excited to see our Chapter's name included in the ASG logo and asked if it could be put on our website for us to download.
"Your wish is our command"
The asg.org website (members only section) has made the "ASG Needle & Thread Logo" available to ASG members in an .exe file for members to download, unzip and use it or add their name, NG or Chapter name to it. Unfortunately only Windows computers can unzip (open) those linked asg.org files. But now everyone in our Chapter- EVEN Mac users can get the digitized logo thanks to Helaine and Sandi! Helaine started with the ASG Logo and added our Chapter name below. She uses a Bernina which takes the ART70 format. She sent that file to Sandi which Sandi was then able to convert into common formats for use by PCs and Macs.
Our members can now download the unzipped- ready to use ASG Logo, our Chapter's ASG Logo and the ASG Sewing Friends Together files.
DST and EXP are basic, stripped down file types. Almost every machine can open one or the other so try them if your format isn't listed below.
If you run into problems, please let us know and if you resolved things tell us so we can pass along your tips to others.
Sarasota/Gulfcoast Chapter LOGO FILES
Sandi's note: I cannot put the embroidery files directly on this website, so you will need to:
1. (Optional) Download the pdf placement guide (on the right.
2. Select the blue hyperlinked text below that describes the file type that you need for your particular machine or software program. The link will take you to our Google Drive where you can download the embroidery file.
The Read Me File on the asg.org states that the files were: "originally digitized using the .exp format (3.24 by 1.89 inches with 6,421 stitches)".
If you need help figuring out the correct format, check this table. If a link isn't working or if you run into a problem, please send me an email. If you need a file emailed, be sure to tell me what machine brand (s) you have and what format(s) you want.
Sarasota/Gulfcoast Chapter "Font Only" FILES
Using a .pes file format, I edited Helaine's design to create a design file consisting of the words:
I then exported it into the other formats. Please email me if you need one that is not listed.
ASG LOGO FILES
These are the original files from asg.org. No changes have been made to the files or thread color/pallets. The PDF file to the right was created by Sandi after she changed her .pes file thread pallet.
The Read Me File on the asg.org states that the files were: "originally digitized using the .exp format (3.24 by
1.89 inches with 6,421 stitches)".
ASG Sewing Friends Together FILES
When I opened the original files from asg.org all but 3 of them were corrupted. The PES file came through fine so I used that to covert to the other formats. Because this is a large file design, I kept the conversions to those newer machines with frames large enough for an 11 inch design. It is best to create your own PDF template (if needed) as the design will be split across into 2 pages.
If you need a format not listed please email me.
The Sewing Friends Together Design is from the asg.org site and was originally digitized in the .pes format. It is 10.24 by 3.17 inches and 40,148 Stitches.
