VIKING/PFAFF SOFTWARE WORKSHOP
WEDNESDAY 13th 10am-12pm

 

Software workshop has proven to be the perfect class for someone with 5D, 6D or Premiere and Premiere +2 Husqvarna/Viking or Pfaff basic software.
Where else can you find a small group where you can get answers to questions you have about your software? Most stores only teach the most current software version. We would like to help those It is sometimes hard to remember how to perform simple tasks and we may need a little individual help. While we don't have a printed lesson, we will do our best to answer and explain everyone's questions. So come prepared with your software loaded on your laptop, along with a mouse. Of course, your computer must be up-to-date.  
The workshop will run 2 hours and the cost will be $15.00.  You will not be the only person in the class, so please bring your list of questions, and call the store to reserve your space. Class meets on the 2nd Wednesday of the month, from 10am to 12pm.
