Stellar Class!!!

This class opened the doors for me to digitizing. Even though I do not have the covered software, with persistence and Cookie's help, I was able to unlock the doors to my software. I am now digitizing my own designs for a large project that will be exhibited in an art gallery in November 2014. Thanks, Cookie! You made it possible for me to fulfill my obligations.

Thanks! I did it!

Amazingly helpful!

This is the best class I have ever taken! I have tried at least 2 other classes without results, but after taking only a portion of this class I am digitizing a handwritten recipe. I would love to see more from this instructor, she is fantastic!

I would love to see Cookie do another class, as a continuation to this one, getting into texturing and other advanced embroidery. Thanks for a great class!

She shows you what to do then explains why and this is the key to being able to understand why things go wrong and how to correct them yourself.

She has a very engaging personality and is a superb teacher. It will whet your ...
