5D Embroidery Bootcamp 2012 Recap

5D Software Embroidery Bootcamp Class of 2012
We had a great attendance at our second Annual 5D Bootcamp that was held this past weekend at Mitchell College.  We broke into two classes, with Kothy teaching the beginning class and Diana the intermediate!  Everyone was well fed with great lunches especially made for us by Bob's Grill and Pie in the Sky!  The 7 layer salad from Bob's Grill was the biggest hit!

We went through about six or seven big bags of assorted chocolates and about 10 dozen cookies!  Lots of fuel for all the creating on the 5D Embroidery software!

Everyone had a great time and many will be back next year.  We hope to grow the Event, as it is a great way to have three days hands on, to learn and create with the 5D Software.

The third Annual 5D Software Bootcamp will be Thursday September 26 to Saturday September 28, 2013.  Check out the details on the 5D event page!

We are now taking reservations for the 5D Embroidery Software Bootcamp!  Space is limited, so sign up soon!

Special Events Calendar

5D (TM) Software Boot  Camp
Educators -  Diana Cedolia and Kothy Hafersat
Thurs. September 19 to Sat. September 21, 2013
Quilters Loft is excited to present our third annual Embroidery Software Boot Camp.  This is an intense workshop on the 5D Embroidery Suite. These classes are hands on!  We will have two classes running at the same time. Each will cover similar material but the intermediate class will go at a much faster pace.                          

Class One - this is for beginners who currently own the software, but have not used it much!  Also for those who do not have the software, but are interested in learning more about it, those who currently own another brand of software, or have 3D or 4D and have not upgraded to 5D.  Class size is limited to 20.  We will load the software onto your laptop, and provide a dongle (security key) for the event.  You will need an external mouse.

Class Two - this class is intermediate and for those who already own the 5D Embroidery Software Program.  To qualify for this class you will need a working knowledge of all the icons, and be able to move quickly thru the modules and how to save files.  This class moves at a fast pace!!!!  

Requirements for both classes!

A laptop updated to the latest version of your microsoft software.
If you own 5D Embroidery, go thru "smart update", and be sure your software is updated to the latest version!
An external mouse or tablet!   
You will not be able to keep up using the mouse on the laptop!
