Warehouse change at Husqvarna Viking

11th May 2010

Dear Reader,
Husqvarna Viking are moving their warehouse to a new location in Europe, which means we are currently experiencing slower deliveries. Please bear with us for the next week or so until the move is complete.
We are sorry for the inconvenience caused, but this should result in a quicker delivery system in the long term.

Best wishes the team at Husqvarna Studio Nottingham

Software Class next Tuesday 18th May

Do you like machine embroidery but long to be more creative? Jayne Childs has devised just the course for you! Using lettering and monograms as her inpiration, Jayne will share all kinds of design techniques and tricks in this one days course. 

Before Jayne left the studio in 2007, she was  inspired by the software club she ran to design and stitch a whole quilt using every program in the 4D professional software. The resulting 'Alphabet Quilt' is on display in the Studio now.

Jayne has used all of the 4D software programs to create the letters, including 4D Embroidery, Cross Stitcher, and 4D Fabric Decorator, so whatever 4D software you have you'll learn new skills for use at home. You won't spend all day glued to a screen though, in the afternoon you will stitch out the designs you've created.

It costs £28 and there's an equipment list provided. To book, either call us on 0115 9881550 or book online
