Software Club

Software Clubs February 2022

Hello everyone, I hope you are staying warm in these cold days.  It looks like it will finally warm up this week.

This month’s Software Club will be meeting via Zoom on Sunday, February 13 from 9:30 to 11:30 am and again on Friday, February 18 from 7:00 to 9:00 pm.

With Valentine's Day close by, I thought it was time I did a little loving for myself and decided to make a sign for my sewing room.  As a result, this month we are going to make a sign of rules for our sewing room or studio.  We will use a variety of fonts for the words, and to make it easier to add sewing designs around the words, we are going to create a font of sewing designs.  That's right, we can add designs as letters - we've previously added designs of letters to make a font.  This time we're going to use sewing designs for the letters.  We are using the Majestic Hoop, but if you don't have this hoop, we will also go through splitting the design so it can be stitched out with any hoop.

Here's what I've come up with, but haven't yet stitched it out:

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. The coupon code for having paid for the full year has changed this year, so if you have prepaid and don't have the new code, let me know.

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.

Stay safe
