Benton Sewing Seminar

We have had three great days of digitizing and embroidery. I hope you all feel you learned a great deal while having a good time. We covered a lot of ground with the projects and you learned techniques that you can apply to different projects along the way. I was able to take a few pictures the last 2 days. You all were a great group to work with! Thanks Billie Jo for hosting our seminar.
Enjoy the pictures and give some feedback.  If you took pictures, please send them to me.  I didn't get to take as many as I would have liked, I always forget to pull out the camera.

Hi Daniel,
The PR1000 does indeed have an upgrade.  It is called Kit 1 and you can purchase it from your local Brother dealer.  It has quite a few new features including the scan function (that lets you scan your fabric to view your garment on the screen, a pattern connect by camera function, color shuffle, resizing with stitch recalculation, custom thread chart saving function, 10 new embroidery patterns and 2 new fonts.

Benton Sewing Center - Pattern Connect by camera

I don't know about you ladies, but I learned a lot today.....about what can happen in a class with different machines and how to solve those issues.  All in all though you weathered it well.  Thank you for your patience with each other!  Just think if we hadn't had issues, you may not have realized how handy the scan feature on the PR1000 upgrade 1 is to have at your disposal.  Also, you now know what the new update on the PR1000 looks like.
Hopefully, you will find the feature helpful and will enjoy using it in the future.  It really is a great little feature when you wrap your head around how it functions.
I am looking forward to seeing you again in the morning.  Tomorrow we will learn tons of stuff in the software, so be prepared!
Have a great night!

Thanks Claudia

Thank you Claudia,
I really enjoyed my visit with all of you at Rae Bon Sewing.  I especially appreciate you ordering up the wonderful weather for me.  It seems I left just in time as snow came along the next day!

I do hope you are all practicing what you learned and are enjoying the software. 

I apologize to you all for not posting sooner.  I hit the ground running when I arrived in Tn, preparing form my seminar this week in Benton, AR.  Since this is a create and sew, and I had a new class offering, I had some writing to do and kits to prepare.

Below are some pictures from last weekend! We were so busy, I didn't think to take any until the end of the seminar.  Be sure to keep in touch and if you have any comments to offer on the seminar, please post.  Thank you for welcoming me into your community.
