Embrilliance Software - Enthusiast & Alpha Tricks

“Enthusiast” is the component of the Embrilliance embroidery software that allows you to quickly and easily edit designs that others have created and/or that you have purchased elsewhere. Enthusiast also gives you the ability to use a knockdown stitch (when embroidering on towels or other fabrics with a thick pile), gives you the ability to split monograms or designs, to save your designs in a picture format, and much, much more! "Alpha Tricks" is the component of the Embrilliance embroidery software that allows you to convert fonts that you've previously had to insert one letter at a time into keyboard fonts (which are then used just as the popular .bx fonts, i.e. typed from your keyboard). It also allows you to organize and rename your fonts so that you can find them more easily - which comes in very handy for those of us with 100's of fonts to choose from! Sign up today to learn about these features and make your embroidery life simpler! Must bring laptop and a working mouse to class. Class fee: $50 Kit fee: $0 Teacher: Helen Kelly-Coco
