Software Club

Software Club January 2021

Hello everyone, Happy New Year!  I hope you all had a safe but pleasant holiday period and were able to touch base with friends and family.  This month’s Software Club will be meeting via Zoom on Sunday, January 10 from 9:30 to 11:30 am and again on Friday, January 15 from 7:00 to 9:00 pm.

We've safely got through the holidays and now it's time to look forward to Valentine's and St. Patrick's Day.  This month I though we would make some mug rugs to give to friends and loved ones.  So this month we will be creating in the hoop (ITH) mug rugs with sayings.  We will start with a blank using different shapes and then embellish using built in fonts and SuperDesigns.  While our software has a lot of fonts, sometimes we want one that doesn’t yet exist, so we will create a new one. I will show you how to find a font you already have as well as how to add the fonts you may have purchased elsewhere so you can use them in our software as well.  Here's what I've come up with so far:

  They're really quite addictive!

In order to get the most out of the Zoom session, we found that having two devices was a benefit.  You can use your laptop to do the lesson with me and then have the Zoom meeting on a tablet or even smart phone to see what I'm doing on my screen.  If you don't have two devices, you can use two windows on the one screen, but it did take some finagling to get it working properly.  We found it useful that the device with your zoom session has voice capability.

If you plan to join me for this month’s Software Club, please sign up online at our  website so that I can forward you the instructions and handouts beforehand as well as provide the Zoom information.  If you haven't prepaid for the year, the fee is $15. 

If you have prepaid and attending, the same coupon code as last year will work.  If you haven't yet prepaid for the year, but wish to, you can do so online by searching for Annual or by giving the store a call and paying over the phone.

Let me know if you can't find the appropriate coupon code or
 if you have any issues. If you have stitched out any previous sessions’ design(s) please have it (them) close at hand as well, or any show and tell. We all like to see what you have been doing.

Hope to see you online. If you can't make it on these dates, I will record the session for later viewing so even if you can't actually join us on one of these sessions, you can still sign up and access the information.
