Handi Quilter Van Event 2022 - Hands-On Pro-Stitcher Designer Class



Pro-Stitcher Designer is a user-friendly application used for creating your own designs, or editing existing designs for use at your computerized quilting machine.  The program integrates beautifully with Pro-Stitcher Premium, making it easier than ever to modify any quilting design to fit your quilt precisely.

You won't believe how easy it is to digitize your own quilting designs to match you quilt's theme, taking your creativity to a whole new level!  You'll work at your own laptop, hands-on.  Even if you don't own Designer, you can use the software in trial mode to try it out with no commitment.

In this one-day class, you'll learn the following:

  • Use the Draw and Edit tools to create your own motif designs.
  • Create precise continuous line designs.
  • Splitting and Connecting designs.
  • Saving designs for quilting machine formats.
  • Drawing and designing from inspirations.
  • Migrating from Pro-Stitcher and back again.
  • Modifying existing quilting designs.
With the class limited to 12 participants, you will have time to experience much of what is presented on your laptop.  If you are note-taker, don't forget your paper and pen.  Come ready to shop and save on Handi Quilter machines, tools and supplies.  And we will be ready to answer all questions for those considering the purchase of one of the Handi Quilter longarm machines.

Your training days will be split into two sessions with the morning session starting at 9am.  After lunch break, the afternoon session will wrap up around 4pm.  (Lunch is on your own.)



The following is general information that applies to all classes.
