New project video uploaded: Thanksgiving Turkey Embroidery Design

We have had quite a few requests for digitizing lessons from start to finish!  We have created this 50 minute project lesson from start to finish – from brining in the jpeg to Studio, to creating the design, and then adding some lettering in Editor.  The turkey is a great design, and I made a cute patch out of it too!
