Embroidery Machine Basics

** Note: this event will be held in person at the makerspace. Read our Covid-19 requirements for attendees here.

Curious about the embroidery machine sitting on the shelf but not sure how to start using it? This class will demystify the embroidery machine and software, setting you up to design and execute your own custom embroidery!

You will learn the basics of designing in the embroidery software Hatch, how to transfer a design from the computer to the embroidery machine, and how to stitch your design with the machine. The first two hours will be learning the software and the machine, with the third hour for you to play around with the software with the instructor to help troubleshoot. If you have an image you’d like to embroider, bring it with you on a flash drive or have it accessible via email.

What you get to take home:  Knowledge of how to use the Embroidery machine and software.

Whom it’s for: Anyone aged 11+ (youth 11-16 must have a guardian present). No experience necessary. New sewers welcome!

What we’ll provide: Computers and software, embroidery machine, thread, and backing material.

What to bring: A can-do attitude and an email address for signing up for the 30 day Hatch trial!

Please sign up at least 24 hours in advance. To check availability within 24 hours of this event’s start time, call 833-2-MAKE-IT.
