Getting to know your Digitizer V5 software

Katrina has a passion for digitizing, indeed many of the designs that you will see hanging in our store have been digitized by Katrina, from scratch, using the Digitizer software from Janome.

Every month we hold a Digitizer V5 workshop, that is completely hands on and can be attended both instore or you can log on via our virtual classroom.

At the moment our online classes are completely free and you receive access to the classroom, class notes, recording of the class and the demonstration of how to create the embroidery design.

Our instore classes are a cheap $15, and receive everything above, but you also receive the added bonus of Katrina and Peters knowledge in assisting you through the design.

Have a look at one of our latest Digitizer V5 workshops below, and if you would like to join us, our next workshop will be held on the 3rd of May at 8pm and on the 4th of May at 10am, register here to join.
