Art and Stitch Training

I am pleased to announce that I am now a Certified Trainer for Art and Stitch a wonderful software that allows you create your own art work with drawing tools, trace designs from existing images or very easily convert  vector art  then assign stitches and then save to the format of your long arm quilting system  or embroidery machine.

I can provide training in several ways and below I have outlined information on the different methods of training offered and also the classes available.

Online 1-1 classes

I am  excited  to offer  Online Classes for Art and Stitch using WebEx to collaborate interactively online. With WebEx, I will demo a feature and then be able to pass control over to you to practice. At the end of the class you will have a video of the session.
