Joanne has been teaching hands on computer classes for several years. With the addition of computerized sewing machines and embroidery modules you have had to learn how to use a computer if you want to use these machines. Step by Step information with screen shots are provided for Windows 7 and Windows 8. An Index is provided so you can look up a specific topic. Even if you think you will never digitize you will still have to learn how to use the computer if you own or wish to own an embroidery machine. This usually involves learning how to use a new machine as well as how to use the computer. This is quite a daunting task for some students and the reason Joanne wrote this class. Anyone who is trying to learn how to use a computer will benefit from this class as well. There are some areas along with two whole sections that are about information for home embroidery machine users, but the rest pertains to computers in general.
