Announcing Online Event with Michelle Gillmartin: Table Runner Class!

Sewing and embroidery expert, Michelle Gillmartin, presents a one-of-a-kind online event for A1 Reno customers!

You have four class options to choose from. We hope you join us for all 3 days from the comfort of your home!

Class Location: Online Access Provided with Supply List

 

Agenda:

Day 1 (Thurs., 6/18 from 9am - 12pm) - Software Session for PE Design 11 or Palette 11 Users

Product required: Installed and updated PE Design 11 or Palette 11 Embroidery Software

This is for advanced beginners. You should be familiar with some of the basics in Layout & Editing. We’ll be using the following tools: Import SVG, Shapes, Applique Wizard and Embroidered Patch. These are all on the home tab. You do not have to have used them before! But you should have the software loaded and know how to open Layout & Editing. We are going to create all the table runner pieces in software. I have the actual created files if you get stuck.

Email me and I will send you the heart SVG. It was a royalty free file but please do not share it outside the class.

If you are a beginner, this is probably not a good first class for you. If you are unsure you can email me @ mgillmartin@gmail.com
