Hello everyone, this month’s Software Club will be meeting on Sunday, August 11 from 9:30 to 11:30 am and again on Friday, August 16 from 7:00 to 9:00 pm.
This month I’m trying something different for Software Club. At the software education event that we had last month, the educator touched on the various apps that are available for our machines. Since many of these apps can be used with most embroidery machines, and those attending the class came away somewhat confused, I thought to make an in-depth study of them. For those of you who didn't make it to the Software event, there are several free apps published by Husqvarna Viking (and Pfaff) that can be used on your smart phones and/or tablets. While they are designed to go with the WiFi enabled machines, a number of them can be used and useful without these new machines. There is a Sewing Advisor; you can take a picture with your phone and turn it into a design without software; you can create Projects and share them with friends. Jo and I are planning to use the Project Creator to share the projects for Embroidery Club in the future. For this reason I will be repeating the class for the Embroidery Clubs as well.
In order to get the most out of the session, you can bring your laptop (and software dongle/hasp, if you are using Premier+ version or earlier). However, more importantly, please bring along your smart phone and/or tablet.
If you have stitched out any previous sessions’ design(s) please bring it (them) along as well, or any show and tell. We all like to see what you have been doing.
If you plan on join me for this month’s Software Club, please sign up online at our website www.sew-jos.ca/classes.htm so that I can forward you the instructions to print beforehand. If you haven't prepaid for the year, the fee is $12. If you have prepaid and attending, please drop me an e-mail and I will add you. I still haven't resolved the bug with the coupon code.
Hope to see you at Club.
