Computer Know How


This class is for those new to embroidery, or new to purchasing their own designs and for those who would like help in organizing designs on your computer and transferring them to your embroidery machine. You will learn how to download a design from an online source and import from an embroidery CD or USB stick. Then, you will learn how to get a design from your computer to your embroidery machine.   If you have a newer embroidery machine that can accept designs wirelessly, we will go through this process as well.

Class does not require any special software, but we will discuss various embroidery editing and organizing software programs. In addition, your handout will include a list of favorite sites for purchasing embroidery designs!   

Bring your laptop with external mouse, an empty 1-4 GB USB stick, or you can purchase an Angels USB stick, CD with embroidery designs or designs on a USB stick (if you have any), notebook and pen!  If you have designs on a CD and your computer does not have a CD-rom drive, you must bring an external CD-rom drive to use that.  Please make sure your computer is up to date before class. Thank you.

I will be using a Windows PC.  Most embroidery software is for the Windows platform, including the database transfer programs from Brother and Babylock that allow you to send designs wirelessly from your computer to your embroidery machine.  You can use a Mac for this class in organizing your designs and saving to a USB stick.

***You do not need to bring your sewing machine for this class.  We will load a design onto a machine in the store.


Classes and Lessons

In an effort to assure that each student gets the attention of our teachers we pay close attention to the size of each lesson and class that we put on our schedule. Because of this our class sizes are typically small. We recommend that you reserve your space as soon as you can. You can sign up for classes online, in store, or over the phone. You can sign up for lessons either over the phone or in the store.

It is very important that you read the details of each class description. Within the class description you will see the items that you will need for the project as well as the skill level for that class. Some classes you will need to have certain things prepared for the class, so it is very important to carefully read the description.

Class Cancellations:  If you are unable to attend a class, lesson, or event that you have signed up for we ask for a 24-hour notice. If you let us know 24 hours before the class, we will issue you a store credit for the price of the class. If you do not let us know before the 24-hour time period, you will forfeit the cost of the class.

Weather-Related Class and Lesson Cancellations:  Angels values the importance of our customers safety and will close the store during inclement weather if necessary. Angels follows the Salem School District for weather related closures. We DO NOT follow the school for delayed openings. If you are scheduled for a class or a lesson on a day that the weather is questionable you can either go by the listing of the Salem School district, check our Facebook page and whenever possible we will call and/or email all customers who are scheduled for a class or lesson on a day that we close the shop. If we do close the shop due to the weather, we will credit your account for that class and try to get you rescheduled as soon as possible.
