How do you download the free monthly designs from the Floriani website?

step one: download the designs

Here is the link to the RNK software club where the free designs are located:

  • click on the above link to go to the free designs
  • sign in to your RNK account
  • you will be given two options: download ALL designs or download CURRENT MONTH designs

  • choose the option that you prefer
  • scroll down the screen and you will see a preview of the designs for the current month

Note: If you are downloading ALL the designs, it will take several minutes depending on your internet speed.

step two: unzip the file

The file will download to your computer in a zipped format. You will need to unzip the file.

  • on your computer, navigate to your DOWNLOAD folder
  • select the monthly design file
  • RIGHT click and in the menu choose EXTRACT ALL

  • In the next screen, browse to this location: C:\Floriani\Designs
  • click on EXTRACT

This next box came up on my computer screen.

Note: your computer may use a different program to unzip your files. Follow the prompts for your program.

step three: Open the Floriani FTCU program

Note: If you already had the program open, you will need to close the program and re-open it.

  • on the left side of the screen, click on the LIBRARY tab and you will see the list of the Monthly designs
  • click on the + sign to open each file

  • left click on a folder to select

  • click on the DESIGN tab to view the designs in the folder

step four: add a design to the workspace

You can choose any of the designs to add to your workspace.

  • left click on a design and drag and drop onto your workspace
  • you can now edit/resize the design as needed
  • save the design in your machine format to embroider

Note: You can also use the BROWSE tab, to navigate to other folders on your computer that contain embroidery designs.

Once you have located a design folder, then click on the DESIGN tab and you will be able to view all the designs in that folder.

You can also drag and drop any of those designs onto your workspace as well.

And, as always, if you have any questions, please send me an email at and I will try to help!

    1. Hi Pam,
      You can have the PDF emailed to you by filling out the email subscribe box at the end of the post. It will be emailed to you and you can download it from that email. It works that way for any of the PDF lessons that you would like to have.

    1. The jpegs are still in the file, but the FTCU browse tool can only read certain file extensions (the machine formats). To view a jpeg files in FTCU, you can use the Backdrop tool and open the jpeg image that way. Then it will load onto your workspace and you can then trace the image to digitize it.

    1. Hi Christi,
      I just tested the link and it worked for me. If you don’t see the free designs, you have to sign into the Floriani Club to be able to download the monthly designs.
