Classroom Tips

Hi Everyone! Here are some tips suggestions for everyone attending our weekly classes:
Sign up in advance for the classes to reserve your seat in the class.  We are still “testing” the new software for the classroom, and so far we think that its simple and easy for everyone to use – it gives more of a classroom type setting – you can join the OML school, and then join different classes!  You have a nice record of upcoming classes, too.   Thats another reason why we suggest below that you sign up for the Classroom as well as the classes.
When you are signing up, register on the e-lecta site for the OML classroom. Once you are signed up as a student, you will have access to an abundance of information – including the dates and times of your upcoming classes! If your attendance email gets lost or shows up too late for class, you can simply to to the classroom and sign into your account and get in that way! Super easy!
I would suggest that you show up for the class early : you can get into the classroom 15 minutes before class starts- that gives everyone time to check their audio and microphone to make sure everything works! We are there doing the same things, so stop in early and say HI!!  If you  are having any issues you can always put your hand up and type into the chat box and let us know how we can help!

Make sure that you have a good internet connection for streaming. If you have slow internet, your internet connection might be lost and you may have issues streaming the class! But everyone who signs up for the class will get a free copy of the video of the whole class, so you won’t miss a thing!
Most importantly, if you are having any issues at all about anything at all, you can email us or call us and we will help you out! Of course if you email or call during class time, we can’t answer because we are teaching a class 🙂
Hope that helps everyone, and we look forward to seeing you in the classroom for some great embroidery digitizing lessons!

    Was given Embird 2003 software recently and I’m REALLY needing classes on how to use it. I see you have class videos available for purchase. I’m interested in them but don’t know the order in which I should view them. I’m sure you’re probably using a newer edition of Embird, but I figure I might learn enough to figure out how to use the one I’ve got. So….will you give me the order and names of the class videos in which I should begin?
    thank you!

      My first bit of advice is the upgrade your software – they have made quite a few changes that make life easier!! The cost is minimal, and I am sure that you will find it way worth it. Regarding the videos, we have quite a few online. I would suggest the Beginner Class course that we are still doing – the first part was all about Embird Manager, and the second one was on Embird Editor – both will help you get around the software. They are videos of classes, and they are available for download on We have an upcoming beginner class on Sunday, October 4, too. You can also go and check out the free Youtube videos we have – they are mostly short quick tips videos but are extremely helpful: is the first one, and there is a second part to it. Then you can work your way through the rest, they are in no particular order.
