January 17, 2022, Windows Primer for Quilters
January 17, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 12:30 pm CST$60.00
Quilters, do you ever get the sneaking suspicion that the technology we use is a little smarter than we are?
Have you ever felt discouraged from your passion for longarm quilting because of discomfort with Windows computers?
Are you brimming with creativity, but feel overwhelmed with unfamiliar jargon when working with technology?
Well, fret not! This November 3rd, I’m hosting a special session designed to teach you the essential tech skills you need to work comfortably at your own Windows computer with the entire suite of Pro-Stitcher Products.
During this half-day session, you’ll learn to install, update, and manage your work in Pro-Stitcher Premium, Pro-Stitcher Designer, and Catalog, as well as how to create your own easy-to-understand storage system to sort your files and resources.
I will teach you all you need to know about compressed files (zipped), how to use the Windows File Explorer to quickly find what you’re looking for, and how to navigate and search documents like PDFs for essential information!
You’ll learn how to source and import designs and graphics from the internet directly into your computer, to add designs to your PS Tablet, and how to copy, without fear, from device to device.
You’ll learn, too, about safeguarding your investment with surge protectors, how to care for your USB drives, creating shortcuts, and much more! I’ll even show you how to remove the pesky anti-virus messages on your PS tablet and to tame the pop-up Windows keyboard that gets between you and your Pro-Stitcher.
Use your tools with grace! If unfamiliarity with Windows and clunky technology scare you away from the craft you love, don’t miss this class!
Class size is limited – reserve your spot early! Applicants to this class should be comfortable using Zoom to communicate, and should ensure the stability of their connection, as well as the fidelity of their voice and video communication prior to the day of the class!
