Advanced Software Club

 Advanced Software Club November 2022

Hello everyone, hope you were prepared for winter!  Wow it came on fast this year!

This month’s Advanced Software Club will be meeting via Zoom on Sunday, November 27 from 9:30 to 11:30 am, and again on Wednesday, November 30 from 7:00 to 9:00 pm.

Christmas is just around the corner and decorations are nice to get in the mood.  In this class we are going to make Christmas ornaments using the Create or Digitizing module.  These are quick projects to stitch and we can use different techniques to decorate them.  We will start by creating a blank that can be stitched out with shiny or decorative fabric.  Then we will move on to a chenille style.  We have a variety of Specialty stitches on our machine which can be used to add candlewicking.  Then we will appliqué more fabric under a different candlewicking motif stitch. Lastly we will decorate with satin columns and a tapered motif stitch. There are so many ways to decorate a simple ball shape.

These are what we will create: 

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 Advanced 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. 

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
