Designer Brilliance 80 and Designer Sapphire 85 Techniques



We are excited to bring you a series of Technique classes for the Designer Brilliance 80 and Designer Sapphire 85 machines.  This is something that has been asked for time and again and we are now going to do the classes via Zoom.  Each month we will present a new topic.  The first half of the class will explain how to do a technique(s) and the second half will discuss the project provided using the technique.

Each class will be recorded so that if you are not available on the particular day and time, you can still participate.

Built-In Tapering Stitches

Tapering stitches are used to create embellishments of various shapes, angles and lengths.  As the name suggests, the stitches begin and end with an angled or rounded point.  Satin-type stitches generate beautiful designs using specialty threads with appropriate needles.  However, many decorative stitches can also be tapered for a unique look.

Design Appliqué
Do you love appliqué? Did you know you can create appliqués from built-in shapes, letters, numbers, and even some punctuation with your machine?  By the end of this technique, you should understand how to create a shape appliqué including proportional and non-proportional scaling, as well as letter appliqués.

7 Omnimotion Stitches
