About this event:
Everyone wants hands on software classes, so we have been trying to figure out a way to do this in an economical and educational fashion. Our brains can not take two full days of just working on the computer trying to learn & remember everything. Who remembers cramming for some math test in school? You may have gotten an A on the test that day but a few weeks later, I bet you had no recollection of what you memorized. In order to really remember stuff, I need to experience it in different ways so that the lightbulb goes off in my head and I get it. By different ways, I mean hands on, lecture, and demonstration in order to absorb and really learn the subject matter at hand.
Putting on these educational events is a learning process for those involved as well and we hope to schedule a couple during the year in various locations. Yes, since I will be hosting the events, I will be teaching Embrilliance classes at each of them. I will have a guest instructor with me teaching and sharing with you their area of expertise which will compliment all the software stuff that I will be teaching.
Our second location is on the east coast at Virginia Beach, VA. We have planned 2 full days of classes, so you will not want to arrive late and leave early if you want to be part of the full experience. If you have any questions regarding the schedule so that you can arrange travel, please contact us via the form (top or bottom of this page).
I have met so many wonderful teachers of machine embroidery over the years. Most of us keep in touch online and that is especially true with my dear friend Leanne Church from Melbourne, AU. I have been very fortunate to have taught a few times for Echidna Sewing Products in Australia – where Leanne & I met as presenters at their incredible Machine Embroidery Conventions. She is currently the National Sales and Support Specialist for Echidna Sewing Products. She loves machine embroidery as much as I do – software is FUN to play with! – and I am ALWAYS in awe of her over the top incredible projects she thinks up and stitches. I am pleased as peaches that the timing worked out and we will be able to teach together here in the USA!
Class Topics for Virginia Beach
The way we have worked out the schedule allows EVERYONE to take EVERY class. Yes, we may have to divide you into groups, but every group will be scheduled for every class – no having to choose and miss out. The only reason you would not be in a class is because you chose not to be there and that’s fine but we don’t think you want to miss any of these 🙂
Note: If you are signing up with a friend and want to be in the same group, be sure to let Gayle know when you book!
About the Teachers – Virginia Beach
There are two columns of classes above – Lisa will be teaching the left column of Embrilliance classes and Leanne will be teaching the right column of machine embroidery mastery classes. We will end the event with a tag team class – as you know, two heads are better than one and we want to make sure we answer all your questions and impart heaps of information! These two topics go hand in hand and learning both will ensure successful projects at the embroidery machine.
If you are traveling in like us, you will want to stay at the hotel – you never know if a pajama party could happen 😀
If you are on Facebook – here is a group that we have setup for those interested in getting information, finding a room mate, and more! Finding Embrilliance Classes on Facebook
