I have some many things planned for 2023 but first let me quickly recap 2022. I started the year with going back to school and taking a screen printing and embroidery class. Once I was done with those classes; I started doing my research on what embroidery machine I should get and even visited my first Expo. I did vlog my whole journey but for some reason Youtube is being weird and not allowing YT Shorts to be posted or shared so if you would like to watch that content go directly to my Youtube channel here or my Instagram page here. I thought there was something wrong with my blog but I was able to figure out that those videos sadly won't be posted on here expect longer videos are the only ones allowed to be shared. Anyways, I was of course super busy with my shop and Halloween orders while getting comfortable using my embroidery machine as well. I ended the year with finally buying an embroidery software.
And here we are 2023, I plan on teaching myself how to use Embrilliance and digitizing my own artwork. I tried to see if a school offered a class but I couldn't find anything so I'm on my own on this but thankfully there's some awesome tutorials on Youtube using that software. I also just started a 4 week course for a 3D pattern class I'm taking this month; so this year is definitely a year full of learning. So if you would like to follow along again, checkout my other social media accounts for updates but overall excited to learn new things!
