Tour of Adobe Illustrator: 
A Free One-Hour Session

Adobe Illustrator Class

We just held a beginner's class on January 31. Students in this class have taken the Illustrator tour back in October, 2015. It was a special invitation to this group who was eager to learn it and apply the knowledge to their sewing, embroidery, and quilting projects. We're pleased to to say that they were exremely happy with what they learned and are excited about how this awesome program is going to help bring their craft to a whole new level.

Stay tuned for more information on future classes and schedules. A complimentary "Tour-of-Adobe-Illustrator" is required (or recommended) before you sign up for these classes.

See excerpts of presentation about Illustrator from October's Brother Event.

Adobe Illustrator is now available to its full usage for $30 a month via a monthly subscription (or $20 a month with a yearly subscription.) You can try the fully functioning program with their 30-day Free Trial. No longer do you have to spend hundreds of dollars to buy it. 

Many people fear trying it out because they're intimidated by its complex-looking environment. The purpose of this tour is to demystifiy Illustrator to help you overcome this obstacle so that you can go and explore its many great features on your own.

This tour will focus on helping you understand the following:
– how Illustrator is set up.
– where the tools are and how to access and use them.
– what Illustrator can do
– what to focus on and what NOT to for beginners.
– how the tools you'll need for digitizing work.

The Tours will be held on Sundays. Future Exact Dates to be determined. Stay tuned for details. Limit to 5 students per session. It will be on a first come first serve basis.
