About this event: Book your group rate for Embrilliance Software Classes

Class runs from 9am – 4pm
The room opens at 8:30 am so that we can set up your computers.  We will break for lunch and class will start to wrap up around 3:30 for those that plan to drive in for day classes.

Each day session will be capped at 30 people per day.  The focus is ONE program for each day – Essentials, Enthusiast and StitchArtist. There is one “intermediate StitchArtist sessions” in the evening which will follow a different format explained further on.

Three Days – a la cart or combination of 2 or 3 days

The classroom opens at 8:30am so that you can get situated with your computers set up. We start the class at 9am.  We take about an hour+  break for lunch (boxed lunches are brought in) We start wrapping up around 3:30 so that we are done and out of the room by 4:00.

Yes, you can sign up for one day, two days or if you really REALLY feel up to it, all 3 days.  I say “really REALLY feel up to it” because for many, taking 3 full days of hands on classes sounds like a great idea and it can be too much.  Its very easy to go on overload and have “mush brain” after trying to cram all the learning in.  Been there as both a student and a teacher so I try to warn people :-).

If you are brand new to Embrilliance – maybe you just got Essentials or don’t have any software yet – or you just want someone to walk you through the programs at a basic pace…..Day 1 is for you. We start at the very beginning and explore the user interface and cover the most popular functions of opening designs, resizing, adding lettering, exploring the lettering tool, the sew simulator, adding color stops, appliqué settings and more.
Day 1 Information and Registration

Day 2 is all about the features of Enthusiast – from the automated functions  to stitch editing. We will only be working with the tools in Enthusiast.  We will cover a quick overview of the program interface for those that are new and only have Enthusiast.
Day 2 Information and Registration

Day 3 is just StitchArtist.  We will start with only level 1 functions in the morning to get us started and start to add in some of the level 2 functions as the day progresses.  Can you take the class with only level 1 – sure!  This class is geared for beginners.  When we start talking about the satin column another other level 2 functions you can either work in Level 1 with the tools available to you and  listen to learn about the features and functions available in Level 2 or work in the demonstration version if you want to push the buttons.

Just like the Embrilliance software, each Day can be taken on its own.  However, because of the specific nature of Day 3, we make a few assumptions:  1.That you are familiar with the user interface of the program, 2.that you WILL watch the beginning digitizing video before class.  This just means you have some homework to do before class to get the most out of it 🙂
Day 3 Information and Registration

The Intermediate  StitchArtist evening workshop will be more of a “study group” 2-1/2 hour session – from 5pm to 7:30pm.  We will have a max of 18 people in this session.  The class registration screen has the links to the newsletter with the graphics that you will digitize on your own in your style no restrictions.  You will then send back your BE file and bring in your test sew so we have a starting place for what we will talk about.  Each of these sessions is for those that are already digitizing in StitchArtist and are looking for guidance to improve, streamline and enhance their skill level.  Prerequisite class work is required.
