Description: Hey, Quilters, it’s a brand-new year and time to put the holidays behind us and get back to what’s important -- Quilting! As you know, Quilt Mercantile takes great care of their customers and machine owners. This shop has always provided varied educational opportunities, and now, in concert with me, are offering you a Pro-Stitcher Mastery Club! In this monthly, three-hour, virtual club we will explore the tools that our Pro-Stitcher products contain. We won’t just scratch the surface either, but we’ll study in-depth, one or more features in every session and I’ll include practical applications and projects using the information, so it will be easy to retain what you learn and to use it immediately. As you all know, the prerequisite for this exciting group is either having taken my two-day Pro-Stitcher Premium: Basics and Beyond Class, or the upcoming refresher course that I’ll be teaching to those who were part of the previous QM club. This is an exclusive opportunity available only to this select group. We’ll be working intimately together to hone our skills in a comfortable, creatively charged environment. I will teach you everything you need, (or want), to know about using your Pro-Stitcher products. If this challenge seems daunting, don’t fret! Between meetings, we’ll maintain our community by keeping in touch via this Facebook group where we can share our challenges and successes and help each other along. I hope to see you there! Meets: First Tuesday of each month Begins: February 2, 2021 Time: 6:00pm to 9:00pm, central time Fee: $45.00 per month Payable: Bi-monthly for February and March 2021, and then Quarterly thereafter

With their upbeat attitudes and engaging teaching styles, you will feel comfortable and read to take over the quilt world. Day 2 starts with the computerized system, Pro-Stitcher.
