Who is the person behind GeminiRed Embroidery Designs? My name is Heather and I took over Baby Kay’s Appliqués in January 2022. I have been sewing since I was eight or nine and started doing machine embroidery around 2012 with my first 4×4 single needle machine. A couple years later after only a few projects, I upgraded to a Janome MB4S four needle machine and now own a BlueSky 15-needle machine. I’m just starting my digitizing journey and look forward to bringing some of my ideas to life.
Where can I purchase GeminiRed Embroidery Designs? Right here! Click SHOP and start looking through all the beautiful embroidery designs we have to offer. You can also find some of our favorite designs on Etsy, because we know that people love to shop on Etsy and we don’t want to leave them out of the fun.
Why are the prices different on Etsy? I can’t thank you enough for supporting this small business (and countless others). Unfortunately, Etsy costs are higher than operating our own website and the fees keep going up. For that reason, all sales, discounts and freebies will only be available on the website. There are many benefits to shopping here on the website – you can easily find the designs you have purchased from GeminiRed Embroidery Designs, when you purchase a link with your files will be sent directly to you, and there are many more designs to select from.
What type of designs do you offer? Currently, the majority of the designs are appliqué and fonts, including beautiful appliqué letters and numbers. We have a handful of in-the-hoop (ITH) designs and I look forward to expanding those offerings.
Can I resize a design? We strongly recommend never resizing any of our appliqué/embroidery designs or fonts. Any revision of designs should be done by the digitzer only with the original file. Resizing will greatly distort the stitches and cause a bad stitch out. It does not matter what type of software you have or what your software says it can do.
BUT WHY? – Think of a heart filled design that has 1000 stitches in it. If you stretch the design you STILL have 1000 stitches but now those stitches have to go somewhere so they spread out causing gaps. If you shrink the design those 1000 stitches move closer together causing tight density in the design and leading to needle breaks and lumps.
How do I access my designs? Once you make a purchase your files will be available in your account. You will log into your account using your email and password you set up during your first checkout. The downloads can be found under each order or the downloads section under “My Account.” If you purchased an individual design (not as part of a bundle) the ADD TO CART button will say YOUR DESIGN. If you click the button it will take you to your downloads. If you click the image for the design it will take you to the design listing and the top of the page will have a red box with links to the downloads for that design (each .zip is a hyperlink you can click on).
Something went wrong!! Uh Oh! If you are having issues with one of our designs PLEASE contact us via the Need Help page/form right away and we will promptly respond so we can help you. Countless hours were spent on each design sold on our website and great pride is taken in the quality of the stitch out. We have a great team of testers that test each design so we know it will stitch just right for you. That doesn’t make us perfect and sometimes it is possible for an issue to occur. We ask that you contact us so we can fix the problem or help you through whatever seems to be going wrong. Leaving negative feedback does not allow us to help you and we want to be sure you are 100% happy with your design from GeminiRed Embroidery Designs.
Credits, Refunds, or Missed Coupon Codes: Please understand that due to the digital nature of our products we are not able to offer refunds. Because a digital file can not be returned to us we have no way of knowing what has been done with the file.
We DO NOT issue back credit, or refunds because you forgot to use a coupon or didn’t know about an available coupon. We make our announcements available to all GeminiRed Embroidery Designs followers and cannot keep up with every single purchase that comes thru and misses a coupon code. You wouldn’t ask a store clerk to issue you credit for a coupon you left at home so please do not contact us to apply a coupon to your purchase you forgot to use last week. I promise we are not trying to be rude about this but if we did it for one we would have to do it for all and there is always a great deal going on at GeminiRed Embroidery Designs.
Effective 1/27/22 all coupons, store credits and gift certificates previously issued by Baby Kay’s Appliqués will expire on 4/30/22. If you have a question or concern, please fill out the Need Help form. Additional information was shared in the Facebook group.
What Formats do you offer? ALL designs and fonts are currently available in DST, EXP, HUS, JEF, PES, SEW, VIP, VP3, and XXX. We cannot convert to any other formats at this time. If you need ART then you can use EXP or PES and convert according to your machine’s manual. You do receive ALL formats with your purchase. Some files may also include JEF+ and PCS. This information will be included in the listing description.
NOTE: Most of our embroidery fonts also include BX format for use with Embrilliance software. Fonts that do not include BX may be converted in the future, but at this time, they are not available. Please read the desciption closing to make sure BX is included.
What is BX? ALL of our embroidery fonts include BX format. Many customers ask what is BX and how can they use it?
BX is ONLY for use with Embrilliance software. With Embrilliance you can use the BX format to type out your embroidery fonts without having to import each letter. Embrilliance is a FREE download to use as long as you are using BX fonts but will require an upgrade to use applique designs.
If you do not have Embrilliance Software, you may purchase it via my affiliate link.
Lets say you wanted to create the name SKYLAR using Appliqué Letters in BX… what would happen is each letter would be flattened and you would ultimately have to stitch them individually.. S-all steps… then K-all steps…then Y-all steps.. and so on… making the BX useless to appliqué letters. In Embrilliance you can simply IMPORT each letter you need and then edit the steps to arrange all position stitches together, all tack down stitches together and all satin stitches together, making for a MUCH easier and faster stitch out. BX has NO USE for appliqué alphas and anyone who offers them in this format simply does not understand they are making your job much harder.
IF there is ever an update to Embrilliance to fix this and allow appliqué alphas to be edited in BX version, there may be an opportunity to turn the appliqué alphas into BX format. Until then I hope this explanation helps and that you now understand why we do not offer Alphas in BX.. ONLY embroidery fonts.
What do I need to know about the digital files I purchased? The digital files are formatted for use on embroidery machines only, unless you purchase an SVG cut file. Each product listing is clearly marked as an embroidery or cut file. You will need an embroidery machine or cutting machine to use the files available from GeminiRed Embroidery Designs.
You will need all the necessary software or hardware to use the files, which may include the appropriate cables or USB drives to move the design from your computer to the embroidery machine and/or cutting machine.
How do I unzip my file? After you download your zipped file you can right click and select unzip or unpack and it will automatically unzip it to the folder you choose or sometimes your computer will set up an unpack folder that it will save your file to.
NOTE: It is your responsibility to ensure your computer is updated and able to download and unzip files. I cannot provide technical support or have knowledge of every computer customers use.
How do I save my files? It is ultimately your responsibility to safely download and save all of your embroidery files. While they are on file under your account, accidents happen and just like you can lose files on your computer, something could happen to the server holding all the orders and files for GeminiRed Embroidery Designs.
It is recommended that you save your files in more than one place. Save the files you are using on your computer, but keep a backup on an external hard drive as well as in the cloud using Dropbox, Google Drive or similar. GRED cannot be responsible for lost files.
May I use your images to sell designs? You MAY NOT use any of our images to sell your products. you MAY NOT use our designs to create new designs for sale as files. you MAY NOT use fonts to create wording for resale as files. ONLY stitched out creations are allowed for sale with our files and not recreated new files.
Will 4 inch designs fit into a 4×4 hoop? If a design is labeled as 4 inches then it is a true 4 inches and will not fit into a 4×4 which stitches at 3.94″. Designs that will fit into a 4×4 hoop have been labeled as 4×4.
Free Design with purchase: We often run a promotion where we offer a Free design with purchase. If there is a threshold that must be met to receive the free design, the purchase must meet the threshold or more AFTER any and all discounts, sales, and coupons are applied. Your final actual paid total must be the amount of the designated threshold. Store credit also does not count toward minimum order requirement.
The FREE design is added directly to your cart once your cart totals the threshold required. If the item is not added to your cart you can still checkout and contact us and we will be sure to email the free design to you.
If you still do not get your Free Promo you can contact us via the Need Help page/form.
SVG/Cut Files: We do offer SVG cut files. These designs are for use with cut machines such as the Silhouette Cameo. They are NOT for use in embroidery machines and will not work in them. For best use you will need software which typically will come with your cut machine. These files come in JPG, PNG and SVG. Be sure you know if your cut machine can use these files.
Mass Production: You may use GeminiRed Embroidery Designs files for personal or commercial use. Commercial use is limited to 250 pieces. Any production more than 250 pieces will need to purchase a Mass Production License for the amount of $150 per design being used. Please Contact us via the Need Help page/form to discuss this further.
If it is found that you are using designs for mass production without a proper license, legal actions will be carried out.

I previously purchased Fonts for Life before Baby Kay’s Appliqués transitioned to GeminiRed Embroidery Designs, what do I need to know? You will always have access to any fonts you purchased individually or as part of a font bundle or Fonts for Life. However, Fonts for Life was an exclusive bundle that Teresa offered for Baby Kay’s and if GeminiRed adds any fonts (acquired by other companies or newly created) they will not be part of the Fonts for Life deal you previously purchased.
