One event on February 1, 2020 at 10:00 am


This event is a test event from Brother at Authorized Vac and Sew for NON-OWNERS of a multi-needle machine and are interested in learning more about it.

IF you are are an owner of a multi-needle machine from Authorized Vac and Sew has training for owners on 1/30/2020 where Michelle will take you beyond the basics!

Brother is testing out a new event and they think that AVS would be the perfect place to do that! AVS is SEW lucky to have Michelle Gilmartin from Brother headquarters come to show us the latest in embroidery, quilting, and more using a multi needle machine. Because this is a new event, and because Brother wants your feedback at the end we are taking applications to attend the event. Please fill out our registration form and a team member from AVS will call you to confirm your registration if you qualify.

The event is free to attend if your registration is confirmed – the only requirement is that you complete a brief survey at the end of the class to be sent back to Brother, they would love your feedback!

Come join in this hands-on event and experience the FUN side of a multineedle machine. Sure, you know that a PR1050X can be a great business machine but what if you just want to do in-the-hoop projects, or edge to edge quilt a baby gift, or do a puffy monogram on your hat?
That’s what we’ll be doing in this event. No talk of business here! Just fun, fun, fun.

On your first day each team will play on the machine doing 4 projects. Day two is a software day lecture/demo on PE Design 11 software with some BES 4 included.
You’ll leave with tips and tricks, like how to pull bobbin thread on a PR, how to float hoop the unhoopable project, how to hoop a visor backwards to utilize all the space, how to set those hand stops that make key tabs. ITH quilting designs and appliques a snap!  PE Design 11 software is the latest in the Brother offering of full version software. You’ll see 30 or more features that will have you off and running in no time. Like how to make a personalized key fob using fonts and the patch wizard. Then send it directly to the Scan N Cut to cut the vinyl!!! Learn how to convert a longarm quilting file in either PE Design 11 OR Bess 4 with power packs to a .pes file you can sew out on the PR1050X using the live camera positioning!!
You’ll leave with a spiral full color handout that you can refer to later to repeat what you saw in class!
Absolutely NO prior multi needle experience is necessary.
