Pro-Stitcher Designer: Everything You Need, January 6-7, 2021

January 6, 2021 @ 9:00 am - January 7, 2021 @ 5:00 pm CST


Designers, has the frost on the windowpanes been filling you with inspiration faster than you can stitch it out? Well, worry not! This January 6th and 7th, I’m hosting a comprehensive seminar to teach longarm-users of all experience levels everything necessary to quickly create beautiful quilts using Pro-Stitcher Designer.

We’ll begin our journey with an introduction to the user interface, features, functions, shortcuts, and resources available to PSD users. Once we’re comfortable navigating the trickier sections of the program, we’ll leap right into design! Using the drawing and editing tools, we’ll create our own artwork from scratch while exercising with essential techniques such as Trimming, Welding, Repeating, and Reflecting patterns.

We’ll learn to draw and design from inspiration, as well! By using the auto-digitization feature, we’ll learn to import patterns from life, as well as how to work with patterns we’ve purchased or downloaded for free from the internet, and how to audition them over different quilttops! We’ll learn to seamlessly integrate our work on PSD with different machine formats, and transfer it between Pro-Stitcher Premium and back so that you can make use of your creative energy anywhere, any time!

 If your goal is to finish your winter motifs before the frost melts, don’t miss this class!

 Class size is limited – reserve your spot early! Applicants to this class should be comfortable with 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.

      Hi, Marion, and thanks for visiting! The classes are recorded and then hosted on my website for at least thirty days after they’re posted, but usually for longer. I hope that works for you.
