The Dezigns.

Diana has been designing and digitising embroidery designs for 10 years. The designs are themed around various topics, often inspired by real life requirements - you will see sets created for the grandkids, for family gifts and for use around the home. The designs are manually created using the Bernina Artista (currently v6) software, painstakingly handcrafted for the best quality sticthing patterns, etc. If you have downloaded a design set, and notice any problems with the stitching patterns, etc, please do get in touch with Diana to discuss this.

Designs are available in many popular formats including .ART, .HUS, .JEF, .PES, .SEW and the new design sets are also available in the .EXP format. Some sets are designed for the 4x4 hoop and others for the 5x7. In some cases you can select either of these hoop sizes for a particular set, and sometimes the set includes designs in both sizes. Information on exactly what you are purchasing is included when you click the "BUY NOW" links throughout the website.

The Website.

This is the brand new and improved dianasdezigns.com website! The original site, first built in the early 2000's by a computer technology student was a great start and was welcomed by the digitising community for its pastel colors, swirly frames and simple navigation. Over the years, the architecture of the website failed to handle the growing number of designs and the level of maintenance required became a burden to both the webmaster and owner - as a result, the site became static and failed to be updated to include the latest of Diana's designs. This new website is a complete re-build, re-architected for an easier and more natural user experience, and to minimise the maintenance required for Diana. It is re-built from the ground up, using comtemporary technologies, standards and usability best practice. As a new release, there are bound to be a few bugs around - please do report them using the contact form if you find them so we can sort them out as quick as possible. We hope that this new design will be simple to use and a pleasure to browse.

The site is built with a combination of html, php, cgi, javascript and uses a mysql database. Furthermore, it links with our payment partners (BMT Micro, Inc) for secure transactions (using SSL 128-bit encrpytion) and a seamless user experience. The website is validated by the W3C for conforming to the HTML 4.01 and CSS 2.1 specifications and has been tested successfully on Firefox 3.5, Internet Explorer 7, Netscape 9, Opera 10, Safari (Mac) and Google Chrome. Please note that you may experience some problems if you use an older version of IE (e.g. IE v6), if your browser settings do not allow javascript or if it does not allow iframes.

The Digitiser.

Diana has been living in Johannesburg, South Africa for nearly 40 years. Originally from the Netherlands, she has spent her time in her adopted country raising a family of 3 boys (4 if you include her husband!) and creating usable fashion - including knitting, cloth making, embroidery and in this new digital age, embroidery design and gift making. She spends her time running the house (with help of course), designing and digitising and talking whenever possible with her 3 young granddaughters. Diana is proud to offer a personal service - expect emails to thank you for your purchases, special attention to your queries and perhaps even a new set if you have a specific requirement. Feel free to get in touch using the contact page.
