Join Kim as she takes you though some of the many levels of creativity on the Destiny. You are going to have fun learning new and exciting techniques in each of the workshops.Each workshop is designed to take you through a particular design feature. All you have to do is pack your lunch, gather your favorite embroidery tools, such as scissors and tweezers, etc. and we will provide everything else.
Level 1 – Color and Camera Workshop

Once it is stitched out we will ‘have fun with color’. We will have art class as we complete our Masterpiece.
Each student will personalize their masterpiece with their own choice of words.
Level 2 – Sun and Sand
Date: Wednesday, August 8th or 15th
This class takes you through a basic view and use of ‘Embroidery Editing’, along with built in designs. The Destiny makes editing sew easy. Learn how to combine designs, size, add and combine built in fonts.
Learn how to stabilize properly for the job and get a lesson color.
If you’re not comfortable with the many built in features of your machine, then be sure to sign up for this one. It’s easy and I will have you so confident by the time you leave that this will truly be an area you will have mastered.
Level 3 – Layering, Scale and Balance - Embroidery Edit

Learn to look at designs differently to give you a whole new embroidery experience. Bring your decorative stitches into the embroidery hoop for added perfection to your work.
Learn about the design process of layering, how to balance with color, how to choose the right scale, how to create unity in your work and how to embellish.
I truly love a machine that takes us to the edge of our imagination. With built in characters and tools to enable us to produce what we dream of.
Join me and unleash your creativity as I guide you through the process and equip you to better use your machine.
You will be able to choose 1 of three designs – Bird, Anchor or Dressform.

Location: Cary Store
This will be a lecture based instructional class. We will walk you through all the steps to create a beautiful project. You will get your files and instructions on the USB drive you must bring to class. We will have an optional kit available for purchase.
Remember those paint by number coloring pictures you may have done as a child? All you had to do was follow the directions, coloring or painting each shape a specific color, and before you knew it, you created a fun mystery picture!
The piecing projects you’ll find in such projects like the “Machine Embroider by Number™” or zipper pouches, works the same way, but with fabric piecing on the embroidery machine—and we promise it’s still just as easy!
Don’t be overwhelmed by the number of steps in each design. They are each small steps that are easy to follow along. We will review each step with you and you will have full color instructions to follow at home. And although there are a number of color changes in the design, that is only meant to “tell the machine to stop” between steps. Usually only 1 or 2 thread changes are needed.
If you lose track of which step you are on, your step by step directions include an icon indicating which step from the embroidery design corresponds with that specific step in the directions.
