"Why would anyone would want to embroider something that is already embroidered, you may ask? My initial response is because one can make the item more personal, which, in turn, makes it even more special to the recipient of such a gift. A quick inspection of the retail market reveals many embroidered items. Why not embellish those pieces with your own monogram or stock design and create a memorable piece? With a little investigation, imagination and creativity, we can attain our goal." Join this energizing class taught by our enlightening Brother instructor, Coleen Swettman. This is a lecture demo and truck show of the multi-needle machines and business ideas from Brother. You will see and hear how these machines can help you begin your business. You will figure out how this machine can sew on things, for example, tops and shoes that are exceptionally hard to do on flatbed home machines.
