Description: This is a hands on computer class for Embrilliance customizing software.  We will go through the basics of the Essentials program from opening designs, resizing, adding lettering, and other customizing functions.  From changing colors to adding new colors and working with parts of designs – the learning won’t stop there!  We will get into the sewing simulator and learn how to check out designs before they stitch – yes you can resize but how do you know when its a good idea – or better yet, when you REALLY REALLY should do a test sew to verify its a good idea.  Bring your questions and come ready to learn. There is so much to the programs, and we will cover lots of tips & tricks to help you customize your designs quickly and easily.

I hate to call this a day for beginners because even those who have been using the programs for years will learn advanced tips and tricks.  However, this day is going to start at the beginning and would be great for those new to the Embrilliance programs.

Requirements: Laptop (if you plan to take the class as hands-on), power supply, mouse, mousepad, Embrilliance software installed, authorized, and up to date.  See FAQ below for update information!!  If you do not have Essentials you will want to also download and install the demonstration version from the Embrilliance website.

The demonstration version is DIFFERENT than Embrilliance Express.

How do you know if you are running the demo?  The program icon will say Embrilliance Demo and when you open the program you are prompted to choose which programs you want to try.  If you are prompted for a serial number, that is Express.

We are not stitching anything, so NO machines are used – this is a software only class.  If you are borrowing or using a brand new to you laptop, please take time to become familiar with the computer and how it works before coming to class.  Class files are emailed 10 days before class – with your lunch order information –  so be sure to watch your email and the Embrilliance Educational Opportunities Facebook group.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: What about lunch?

A: A boxed lunch  will be delivered so that we do not have to worry about travel/traffic etc.    Approximately 2-3 weeks before the event, I will send out an order form with choices and will include vegan & gluten free options.  You are more than welcome to bring your own lunch, but the cost of the day remains the same.

Q: I want to take this class with a friend.  How do we register together?

A: Each person must purchase separately – one person can not purchase more than one class.

Q: I want to stay at a hotel, how do I make reservations?

A: Contact the hotel directly or use your favorite booking engine. Information on group block can be found on the location page.

Please note that we will be turning OFF wifi for class so that we are not hindered by operating system or other automatic updates.

Q: Can I take the class with the demonstration version?

A: Yes. The demonstration version is found on the Embrilliance website at the top of the downloads page

Q: What operating system do I have to have?

A: Windows or Mac – both are fine.  Install the software before hand and you will be good to go!

Q: How do I know if I am “up to date”?

A: The current version of the Embrilliance platform is always available on the Embrilliance website.  There is ONE installation program for the Embrilliance platform AND it is also the update for all programs.  To check the version that YOU are running, open your Embrilliance software and go to Help > About on Windows and Embrilliance > About Embrilliance on Mac.  Make a note of the version number that is listed here.  Go to the Embrilliance website and click on the Downloads page link.  You will see Embrilliance platform listed with the current version for each operating system.  If your About window does NOT have the same version shown on this page, you need to download the update.  Once the file has finished downloading YOU MUST close all programs and run the downloaded file.  Once you have run the installation/update program, your About window will show the current version.  PLEASE do this before arriving to class!  ESPECIALLY if you are having trouble!!  And if you are having trouble — the absolute BEST AND FASTEST way to get help is to click on the Contact Us link to send a message to tech support!  They answer every message sent to them within 24 hours – even on the weekends and over holidays!  

Q: What time should I arrive for class?

A: The classroom will be open at 8:45am and class will start promptly at 9am.  If you need a bit of time to setup or want to get a front row or aisle seat, I would arrive promptly.

Q: What if I change my mind – is the class fee refundable?

A: There are no refunds.  If you don’t know if you can attend, PLEASE do not sign up. This class will sell out.  If you are unable to attend, you can find someone else to purchase your spot and contact me to switch out the registration. To view the cancellation policy, click here.
