Intro. to Machine Embroidery

Registrations are closed


Learn the art of machine embroidery! This introductory class teaches the basic principles of how to prepare your workpiece and stitch out a design using the Brother SE-400 sewing machine.

Topics covered in this class include:

  • Identifying parts of the sewing machine and setting it for embroidery

  • Preparing your workpiece using different stabilizers, attachment methods, and hoops

  • Selecting and loading design patterns, including text and frames

  • Adjusting the design layout, including size, position, and rotation

  • Threading the machine

  • Stitching the design

Note: This is the certification class for the Brother SE-400 sewing machine and is the prerequisite for all other machine embroidery classes taught at TinkerMill, including the certification class for the 6-needle Baby Lock EMP6.

No previous sewing or embroidery experience is needed. In fact, this class is a good way to learn the basics of sewing machine operation in a fun, easy setting where the machine does most of the work for you!

This class is open to the public. The cost is $45 for TinkerMill members and $60 for non-members. All materials are included.
