May 22-23, 2021, Pro-Stitcher Designer: Everything You Need

May 22, 2021 @ 9:00 am - May 23, 2021 @ 5:00 pm CDT


Quilters, everywhere I look, there are flowers blooming– and in my classroom, students are doing the same! If you’re ready to leaf out with Pro-Stitcher Designer, join me for my newest class– Everything You Need!

In this twelve hour seminar, we’ll begin the journey with a quick rundown of PSD’s user interface, tools, updates, and available online resources.

Once we’re grounded, we’ll leap right in to using the Draw and Edit tools to create designs from scratch, and save them for use at your machine!  In addition to original work, you’ll learn to draw and design from inspiration– importing motifs from outside sources, (or your own work for modification), and directly from life, using the Auto-Digitizing and Magic Wand features!

You’ll practice with PSD’s many tools, and learn how and when to apply each one– discovering how to Repeat, Reflect, and Carousel your designs, Split, Connect, Trim, Weld, and Intersect them, and even use the Echo and Rays tools!  I will teach you how to create motifs, continuous line designs, and cropped artworks, that fit perfectly in even the irregular areas of your quilts.  You’ll learn how to easily migrate your designs to Pro-Stitcher Premium for stitching, and then back to PSD for any needed adjustment.

Before we part, I’ll introduce you to working with True-Type fonts, Motif Fills and Outlines, and how I audition designs over my quilt-tops!

My live virtual classes always include plenty of opportunity for student interaction, both during the lessons and when we close.  Whether you have questions about what we’ve covered in class, quandaries from your own quilting journey, or idle curiosities that just won’t let you stitch in peace, bring them to the classroom!

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! A simple Zoom tutorial can be found here.

    Hello Susan!
    Do you ever record your classes?
    I can attend one day but not the second. I have been longing for instruction with ProStitcher on any level.
    What I’ve found out has mostly been in my own. I could use the help

      Hi, Linda! I do record my classes, and then I host them on my website for students to watch as often as they’d like. If you have more questions, be sure and let me know. I’ll look forward to seeing you soon!
