Jenny’s Sewing Studio will hold a 2 day Singer Futura seminar in Salisbury, MD at Hancock Fabrics. Class is scheduled for March 28th and 29th 2015.  Enroll early as space is limited.  I hope you will join me as we explore the use of the embroidery machine.  This seminar is designed to benefit the brand new user as well as those who want to brush up on their skills. Class is limited so enroll early.  Call 410-677-3461 to enroll at Hancock.






The Singer Futura Embroidery seminar will be held  Saturday 10-5pm and continuing Sunday 10 – 4pm. Singer has introduced quite a few Futura models and I will cover how to use them all including the The Futura Quintet, XL580, XL420, the XL400, 4-1, XL550, Futura Quartet or the SESQ6000 SEQS 6700 and more.   The software for all the machines is basically the same.

You will cover how all the basic embroidery functions like loading a design, centering, printing a the template for positioning, changing colors, use the design browser, copy and paste designs, use the embroidery anthology, change the screen color, load the hoops, use the grid, use the lettering engine, learn the draw package and more. I will also cover all the options. Learn to use the Auto Punch, Hyper Font and Photo Stitch. Once you create a design we will edit it using editing option. Make lace, make a simple applique, and add texture to your design. If you own the options you can create along with me. If you do not, watch the demos.  If you are interested in purchasing the options like Auto Punch, Photo Stitch, Cross Stitch, Hyper Font and Editing, order about 2 weeks before the class to make sure you get the option and have it loaded on your computer to use in class.

The Futura’s must be in working order and all software must be loaded in a laptop and ready to use. If you own an older Futura, all software updates must be applied before class. If you have a Futura CE100/200 you will need to upgrade the software before taking class. All students must be knowledgble on basic computer use and file management.  Jenny’s Sewing Studio has the upgrade for purchase.

I hope to see you in Salisbury, MD !  Class is $150.00. Once you enroll, email for class outline and what to bring. I will need your name, address, phone number including cell phone, make and model of Futura and options owned.
Call Hancock at 410-677-3461 to enroll.

March 28th and 29th 2015  I will offer our next Singer Futura 2 day seminar. As a beginning embroidery student learn to stabilize and position your embroidery. See how you can find embroidery on the internet, download and load the designs into your computer. We start out the class by making files and learning how to categorize and store your embroidery, what embroidery formats you can use and how to copy and paste files so you can find them later. We will then use a printed template to position and sew out a design. Next we will explore the functions of the basic Singer Futura embroidery software.

Class is scheduled for Saturday 10am till 5pm. Learn to use auto punch and the lettering options. Make your own monogram and embroider it out. Next learn to do a auto punch embroidery. If you have the endless hoop we will use it, if not we will work with templates to create continuous borders.

fillAs promised I am sharing my embroidered wreath. This is a very easy project. The hardest thing was wrapping the tinsel garland around the styro foam wreath.  Using my Futura Quintet and my new Singer Studio S10 I loaded several floral designs to embroider with red thread. I hooped 2 layers of sparkle organza and embroidered many of these flowers in my spare time. I cut each flower out and pinned it to the wreath.

It took a lot resizeof flowers. The purple flower design I found on the Singer Studio. I am including a link to a free design I made using auto punch. I am offering Auto punch as one of the 3 programs that will come free with the Studio S10.

I howreath60pe you  like my new Christmas wreath. Nice thing is I can keep adding things to the wreath using 3-D embroidery.
