hacking embroidery machines


Over at the Torvalds family blog, Linus has just written a really interesting post about helping his wife with a new computerised embroidery machine she got for Christmas. He talks about the problems with the proprietary/undocumented firmware and file formats.

There’s progress being made in these series of posts (When you have an itch to scratch…., Scratching that itch, Machine Embroidery Management is coming to Linux!), but I am wondering, are there any other related efforts to bring FOSS to embroidery or sewing machines?
