Everything you need to know before you start embroidering

   Watch Promo   Enroll in Course

The Machine Embroidery 101 course was created to put everything you need to know before you start machine embroidering in one place. If you are tired of searching multiple websites for embroidery stabilizers, threads, needles, designs, hooping, downloading, and transferring design information, you now have everything in ONE PLACE.

I will teach you how to avoid costly embroidery mistakes while saving you time and valuable resources as you become an expert embroiderer. You will learn how to hoop and embroider any fabric from traditional cotton fabrics to odd projects such as paper and balsa wood.

If you have stressed over stabilizer choices, this course will break down the whys and hows of navigating the giant stabilizer maze.
