Open to those who own (or are thinking about purchasing) a Brother or Baby Lock machine that has this built in digitizing program; My Design Center (Brother) or IQ Designer (Baby Lock). The programs are identical on the 2 brands.
There are many different models of machines that include this powerful, yet easy to use, tool.
The same class will repeat several times over the course of a month. No need to sign up for every session unless you just want to.
The class is offered at no cost and registration is required.
Each month a new class will be offered, covering different aspects of the program.
This class we will focus on the Line Tools of My Design Center. We will create a line drawn embroidery pattern.
