Software Club

Software Club April 2020



Hello everyone - Happy Easter!  I hope you are all staying safe in these troubling times.

Even though we can't get together this month for Software Club, I needed a break from making face masks, scrub hats and headbands.  So I've come up with a class for this month.  I will finalize the notes and send them out next week.

With spring now underway and the weather is warming up (at least it was earlier this week), I am going to start hanging my laundry out again.  The holder I have been using for my clothespins has worn out and I need a new one - I thought this would be a fun project for this month. So we are going to create a bag in the hoop that can hold the clothespins, with a laundry theme to embellish it.  We will use the Border tab to create the bag, use an appliqué frame to make an opening, use the built in stitches to finish the raw edges inside and then create some “laundry” using the Express Design Wizard and clipart.  We will use the clipart to make each piece of laundry.  One is filled with stitches, the others are an applique item with satin outline and blanket stitch outline.  

  The clothespins created in the Letter tab.  Finally we will add a basket which is a design in our Samples.

If you have paid for the year in advance you will automatically get a copy of these notes.  If you would like the notes and haven't paid in advance,  please sign up online at our  website so that I can forward you the instructions.  Because we can't meet in person, I have created a new class.  In the search field type in Covid and you should get the new class displayed. Click on this class and proceed with adding to the Cart, etc. This class is less expensive to balance out that we can not meet in person.  Of course you are most welcome to e-mail me any questions on the notes if you have any problems following them, as always.

On another note, the April Premier Embroidery Software Newsletter, sent out by the Premier Software folks, is available now.  Here is a link to get it if you have not already had it delivered to you via email:  They have included a nice surprise - a "free" Easter gift, so even if you don't have the current version of the software you may want to take a look.  

I hope the above two items will keep you busy for awhile to help with boredom being at home.

As always, please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
