It’s a treat when she travels and can share nearly 20 years of embroidery and software knowledge that began with Palette version 1 and the very first Designer’s Gallery program. Don’t let that knowledge fool you, she is also very enthusiastic when it comes to her love, embroidery and embroidery software. She tries her very best to present software in a way that is memorable so everyone walks away having learned something new. If you get a chance to see her at an event, be sure to check her out and she will certainly edutain you.


Debbie will be hosting two entire days of 'edutainment' in our Event Center on March 23rd & 24th. She'll be teaching you everything you could ever want to know about babyLock software!

Class Description

Day One: Friday, March 23rd
10:00 - 4:00

See what editing is all about as we walk through the features of EmbroideryWorks Everyday from Designer's Gallery. We will spend the morning discussing and working through the many features of Everyday; along with some basic embroidery terms. Learn about RHS, sweep, knockdown stitching and BX files just to name a few.

Then, it’s on to Advanced. Don't let it scare you; we will spend the afternoon looking at the many features found in EmbroideryWorks Advanced. You will ease right in to these advanced features, designed to improve your embroidery results. See how to baste more than just the design area, arrange designs to create your own embroidered fabric, StitchPerfect and edit stitches with simplicity.

Day Two: Friday, March 24th
10:00 - 4:00

You have Creator, now it’s time to get started. We will jump in and give you a comprehensive overview of the features that will quickly become the most used in each level. A brief description and example will be given for each of the tools in the program to prepare you for creating designs with ease. Learn how to use those Bezier handles, quilt in the hoop, create contour fills and have more fun with motifs that ever thought possible. Also see how to handle your digitizing and artwork in one easy program using the pathing tools in Level 3.

Both EmbroideryWorks and Creator are both PC and Mac compatible.

And if that’s not enough, see how wonderful the designs created stitch on the Alliance Free arm embroidery machine.

Each lecture class will be $30, or you can attend both from $50 (Includes lunch!)
