    Hi Judy - can you send me an email please to and I will try to walk you through the steps to open the files with Adobe software.

    Once the Adobe is installed on your device - you would need to open Adobe and in the Adobe menu click open and find the name of the pattern you are trying to open. This is when Adobe will open that file for you.

    It will be easier via email because I can send screenshots of the steps to take. Have a great day.
