Price: $ 20.00

Note: Each month we review different features of the software and apply it to a project. You will create the embroidery designs for the project and then take the design home and see how it has worked for you. We plan on working with the text tools and how to path text. We will work with resizing text and changing spacing to get the desired effect we’re looking for.

NoteYou will need to make sure you have your software loaded up on a laptop for class so we can use it. You will need to have a mouse, power cord and a wireless internet adapter so you can connect to our internet. Note pad and writing utensils would be a big help so you can take notes on key information. If you have the current manual already printed, you can bring it, but it is not required. Key manual pages will be included as part of your handout.

This is not a class being offered by an affiliate of Designs in Machine Embroidery (DIME) or an educator of DIME products. This is a gathering of software owners helping each other as we learn the software on our own.

Instructor: Carol Kwasny

We have been asked to set up a beginning embroidery class for those who have purchased an embroidery machine and want to put it through the paces. We have found a perfect project to put together. This will be a 7 month course. The class will be offered 2 times a month for each block. You will complete 6 blocks of your choice and put them together to create a wall hanging, centerpiece or table runner. We are using Baltimore Album Blocks by San Francisco Stitch. We can sell you the designs or you can download them directly from San Francisco Stitch. The final class will go over assembling the blocks. There are a few ways you can do it and they will be touched on during the orientation and detailed in class #7.
The designs can be purchased for $39.99 for all 12 designs or can be purchased individually for $4.99 each.  The day of orientation, you will be required to bring your stick so we can download the design(s) you have chosen or the full design pack (if you are purchasing the designs from us).
Signups will be in the store only. This will allow you a chance to see the samples hanging on the announcement board and will give us a better understanding of your needs if we can talk to you in person. This class series is open to a single class if you only wish to attend one class. Students who have taken the full series will receive priority placement in class #7. The rest will be a first come, first serve policy. Thank you for your understanding.

Nonrefundable fee if you miss class. Space is limited.
