Description: About this event

This class is for people new to machine embroidery. The goal of this class is to gain familiarity with the studio's Brother Innovis NQ1600E machine and learn the skills necessary to use it independently. Students will learn the parts of the embroidery machine, how to thread, operate and maintain the machine, and how to properly set up the fabric in the hoop using appropriate stabilizer(s). We will also go over the basics of the embroidery software available on the Textile Studio computer and how to transfer machine embroidery files to the machine for stitchout.
