2019 VIP EXCLUSIVE CLASSES

(Friday VIP) Create your FIRST Snaptab/Keyfob Design in 15 minutes (or less)

I'm completely serious - less than 15 minutes to your own keyfob/snaptab designs using Embrilliance software programs. We will walk through the plan step by step. Once you have your plan determined and understand the stitching order, actually creating the design is easy peasy. Of course practicing the steps will improve your speed, but Lisa is going to give you the step by step instructions so that you can create your very first snap tab and be ready to head to the machine to stitch in under 15 minutes.

Taught by: Lisa Shaw from Bubbles' Menagerie representing Embrilliance Software.
