Let’s Learn Together: Embrilliance Essentials

For those of us ready to start using embroidery software, this is a half-month course for learning Embrilliance Essentials. Embrilliance is a great line of software for beginners because you can add on as you go. It’s great for advanced users because it has a full range of products, including digitizing software.

After the success of our online course for StitchArtist, we believe there is a place for a course on the basic software -- Embrilliance Essentials.

What is the cost?

It’s free.

Who can participate?

Anyone who owns Embrilliance Essentials (whether or not you purchased it from Embroidery.com) or has downloaded the demo. You can purchase a full functioning version of Embrilliance Essentials (with a 90 day money back guarantee) here.

Features

Let’s Learn this: 15 day schedule & study plan: Receive an email each day that covers a different feature of Essentials. The email will also contain links to helpful videos and provide answers to questions.
Discussion Forum and Gallery
: A place to ask questions, find answers, share experiences, or show off your creations. To post to the gallery, email your picture to kirsten@embroidery.com.


Videos: Original videos and videos suggested by class participants can be found here. You’ll be able to visually see demonstrations of topics and techniques covered by each day’s assignment. Includes a playlist of helpful videos arranged by topic, to match the lesson schedule.

I'm also trying to sign up for Embrilliance essentials and thumbnailer class. I've checked my email but haven't found anything. No doubt I'm doing something wrong. I'm computer challenged. Thanks for your advise

Hi Pamela,

I checked, and your Essentials class signup is in order. I see that lesson 4 was sent yesterday. If you don't have it today, do let me know. Welcome to class!

Is there a way to copy the lessons to a USB stick?

Hi Shirley

Great question! There are ways to do that, depending on the email server and client. I have read that gmail does not let you do it, but emails can be saved to USB with Outlook, for example.

Here is how to do it with https://www.premiumusb.com/blog/save-emails-to-usb...Outlook:

Hi Shirley

I re-started the series for you tonight, so I believe you should receive lesson #1 tomorrow at about 2:00 p.m.

Shirley R.

Thank you.. I have a question. How do you do a mirror image. I found the mirror x 4.. I’ve used Embrilliance for years and can’t figure it out.

Thanks, Shirle

Shirley, I think that's a common experience in software. Most of us are still learning things about software we use every day. Here is the link to a video that shows how to do a mirror image.

I would like to learn too please. Is it something we do at our own pace or is it every day

Please Login to comment on this post.

Heather B.

Thanks for the request, Donna. You have now been signed up. The course is emails that will read (including some videos that you can watch). You will get them daily, but since they are just emails, you can read them as quickly or as slowly as you desire. Your first email should arrive in the next 24 hours. Enjoy!

Kirsten S.

Kathleen,

Thanks for the question. Our intention is to let you have the lessons to keep. I know some email servers erase messages though.

I can re-start the series for you at any time, or send you any that you are missing. Do let me know if you would like certain ones, or the whole series.

I also update the lessons with links to the updated manual when changes come out; you might like to update occasionally.

I would like the Essentials lessons to learn that part first. I went to sign up for the email lessons and it says I am subscribed but I don't recall ever having received them, so I signed up again. Hope that is okay as I really want to learn this program and then afterward I would love to learn Stitch Artist. Thanks so much!

I am a late comer. Might I get lessons one and two?

Kirsten S.

Hi Judy,

Yes, you bet. I checked, and see that #1 & 2 were sent to you on 6/22 and 6/23 respectively. I had them re-sent to your judywi1 address, just in case.

I really need to start from the beginning next week, with hubby on home time from truck driving, and I can't fit it in is there a way I can start on the beginning after The 21st when he will be back on the road? This is so different from the Viking software, yet I have a feeling will be better. Also I will be funneling the designs to the Happy Voyager with USB link, and have to set that Happy Link up as well. At this point I am not going to add either of the Viking software I have on that computer, 4D Extra , and 5D Extra. I also have MONOGRAM WIZARD and Janome Digitizer MBthat will be on that computer, so question is can I then put those onto Embrilliance if I want to add other design aspects to it? I Purchased Embrilliance Essentials package and a Font package. Thanks in advance for any help. Cobi

Hi Colbi Lee,

Thanks for the questions. You are welcome to begin your lessons at any time. The emails will come to you daily , each numbered in sequence, and you can decide when to view them. If you would rather have the series re-started after the 21st, let me know.

I hope you find the software to be all that you need, and easy to use as well.
With regard to your question about adding other programs -- I can say their tools can't be added to the Embrilliance window, but you can open one program and use it for what you need, save the file, and then open the other program and use it for the remaining steps with the design, and save it, and so forth.

Since you have Essentials, and fonts, you can bring in a digitized design (that you made in Janome Digitizer, for instance, or from another source) and then add lettering, size it, rotate, mirror, etc.) If you were to go with all Embrilliance products, such as using Embrilliance StitchArtist, rather than Janome Digitizer, then you would be able to create a design and add lettering and edits without opening different programs -- Embrilliance programs can all be added into the same window for convenient use.

I hope that addresses your questions. Please feel welcome to post follow-up questions.

I have not received a link to any lessons for embroidery Essentials. Would like to start them. Thanks

Hi Katherine,

Thanks for the note. I checked, and it looks like your first one was sent on 6/24. It will be from kirsten@embroidery.com. Sometimes people find the first one in the spam or trash folders, before they mark it as something they want to receive.

Thanx for the lessons, I am up to 4 now, and am lovin this program. But I think I am doing something wrong, because when I put my curser on a color of the design (in the windo) it does not highlight on the design. What am I doing wrong? Please help me??? Hugs, Judy...

Hi Judy,

Thanks for your question. Make sure to click on the name of the item in the objects panel. If this doesn't work, perhaps your design has been grouped. To ungroup, click on the design in the main window. Then go to the edit menu and choose "ungroup."

I need help. I am wanting to but the Essentials software. I downloaded the Demo. I watch several YouTube video's, I have a Singer futura quartet xl 400 machine. It uses a USB connection to the computer. I just wanting to know how to send you designs to your machine with the Essentials software or what are the steps of doing this. I have watched videos but I have not seen one for my question. I am still a beginner.

Heather B.

Hi, Pamela. Thanks for writing. Your Singer should have come with software that will allow you to transfer designs to your machine via a USB cable connection. You'll want to use that software for transferring your designs to your machine.

This is embarrassing but in the last couple of years I have subscribed twice and never finished and now I have lost (with a computer crash again) May I have it resent please. Also I have only hit stitch artist 1 is it worth signing up for that course?

Hi Rhonda,

Thanks for the great questions. I have re-started the Embrilliance Essentials series for you today. You should get the first one in a couple of hours.
With regard to the course for StitchArtist - yes it would be worth signing up for that one as well. Most of the course is relevant, as most features are shared by the three levels.

There are several lessons near the end that are exclusively for level 3, and they are marked as such (so you can skip). Additionally, if you are interested in learning what is in those levels, this can be a good way to do it. You can even use the free demo version to follow along with the class if you wish, and see if any of these tools would be worth the expense for you.

One thing I do suggest is that you complete having the Essentials course emailed to you before signing up for the StitchArtist course. I've heard from a few people that the emails are sometimes not reliably getting to them when they subscribe concurrently to both.
