November 15, 2019, 9:30-12:30- Topic to be announced.

December 13, 2019, 9:30 12:30 - Topic to be announced.

This class usually meets the 3rd Friday of each month, May through December, 2019 for 3 hours, usually from 9:30 am to 12:30 pm.  Each month a different topic.  Great way to learn all about your Premier+2 Embroidery Software.  Most classes will be oriented toward the EXTRA level of the software but many will be applicable, also, to the basic level, Embroidery.

Bring software loaded on a laptop computer and updated to the most recent version.  Bring a MOUSE.  Even if you are proficient using the thumb pad, it is NOT efficient to use in the software.  Don't have a laptop?  No problem.  The lesson is projected and someone in the class will be happy to let you look on as they navigate the keyboard.

So you have the basic Embroidery level but you think you might be interested in upgrading to the EXTRA level?  But you want to know more about it first?  It's a $15 monthly investment to help you decide! :)
