Because of all of the requests – here is a special pricing option for BOTH classes at the Applique Getaway
Date: June 22, 2017
Part 1: 1:30 – 3:30pm – questions until 4pm
The first half of the class is with Embrilliance Essentials software. We will go through the basics of the 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. We will create cut files from your applique embroidery designs – easy as pie! Bring your questions and come ready to learn. There is so much to this program, and we will cover lots of tips and tricks to help you customize your designs quickly and easily.
BREAK (on your own for lunch)
Part 2: 5:00 – 7:00pm – questions until 7:30pm
This second part is a hands on computer class for Embrilliance StitchArtist software. We will go through the basics of the program using Level 1 functions. From opening images, creating objects by drawing and using the magic wand, assigning stitch types such as applique, fill and outline. We will add holes to objects such as those in embossed lettering designs using motif stitches and adding stippling around an existing embroidery design. Yes – think of creating your own quilted mug rugs from existing designs – YES in StitchArtist Level 1. There is so much to this program, and we will cover lots of tips and tricks to help you create designs quickly and easily.
Frequently Asked Questions:
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. Please include your friend’s name in the comments.
Q: Can I take the class with the demonstration version?
A: Yes. I will send out “homework assignments” the first week of June. It is HIGHLY ENCOURAGED that everyone follow the instructions and do the homework. This will include installing the current version of the software/demonstration version and following a set of instructions. All who did the homework for previous hands on classes got the reward of feeling confident they were NOT going to be the slowest one in the class (You CAN do this) and they got a prize for doing their homework.
Q: I only want to take ONE class how can I register for that?
A: Each class is offered on its own or in this combo priced version.
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: I thought that the classes at Applique Getaway were included in the price of admission. Why are you charging for these?
A: This is a pre-show hands on software class – it is optional and is limited to 30 students. Purchase to the class does NOT include admission to the Applique Getaway. If you would like to attend this FANTASTIC event and take the FREE INCLUDED classes, you will want to register on their website (www.AppliqueGetaway.com) I will be teaching at least 3 classes during the Applique Getaway – entrance to those classes, listed on the Applique Getaway website, is included with your admission ticket purchase.
Q: what time should I arrive for class?
A: The classroom will be open at 1pm and class will start promptly at 1:30. If you need a bit of time to setup or want to get a front row or aisle seat, I would arrive early.
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, don’t 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.
Q: what if I decide after doing the homework that I want to purchase the software to use the full program in class?
A: Contact me for show special pricing before the show and we can make arrangements or you can purchase at the show.
If you have other questions, please let me know!
