Make it and Take it Scan n Cut Class with Cindy Hogan

Cindy HoganRuthie asked me to come and present a class for you and I said yes!  Come join Brand Ambassador Cindy Hogan for Two Days of fun learning all the ins and outs of using your ScanNCut machine.  This is NOT Lecture/Demo, you will be using your Machine. 

We will be making a total of 6 projects (at least) with our ScanNCut machines using a variety of materials.  We will be creating, a cork key fob, a layered Adhesive vinyl coffee mug (meaning aligning more than 1 color of vinyl), an HTV gift bag project, a glass etched candle holder, and earrings. 

Make It Take It With Cindy HoganEach participant will leave with at least 6 completed ScanNCut projects.  You will get more experience using CanvasWorkspace so that you are comfortable creating your own projects there.  This is a one of a kind learning experience that will teach you how to use your personal ScanNCut DX225 machine or the brand new Disney ScanNCut that just came out.  You will get to cut a variety of materials and learn techniques to make what I call my Five-minute (give or take a few minutes) gift stash. You will have time to ask questions and find out best practices for preparing items to cut.   

This is the only event of its kind that I have offered this year.  Attendance is very limited, so be sure to sign up immediately to reserve your place.  All kits will be provided.  Bring your ScanNCut machine,  mats, power cord,  your computer with CanvasWorkspace loaded. Come with your questions so they can get answered as well.

FREE $188.00 Gift from Santi

Coming all the way from Middleburg, Mpumanlanga in South Africa!

Come join Santi for a fun filled day of sharing embroidery ideas, new products, and software. Plus the best part is you will get to see all the famous works of art. The girls Hatched in Africa are well known on the internet for their quality digitizing and heirloom projects. It is also the home of the now very famous “Apricot Blush Quilt” and the OESD collection, Floral Delights 788, designed and digitized by Santi Nuss.

Hatched in Africa Story

Hatched in Africa was started in May 2000 by Santi, her sister mari and her daughter Liese. We live in Middelburg, Mpumalanga in South Africa.
Many years back Santi was Bernina dealer and soon after selling her store she started getting creative on her computer. She loves doing floral arrangements and so her digitizing reflected that. Soon her first designs were on the internet and so our journey began…
Allsorts Embroidery was started 2 years later by Cara and Betsi, Santi’s daughter and sister. They have added a lot of creativity to our growing family.
Hatched Embroidery Fun was started in 2010 for more stotck type designs and is also now part of our new big family website.
Santi became known for her Apricot Blush quilt and the book that was published. After that came the Jacobean Jewels and the ever famous Jaocbean Peacock done in 4 hoopings! Her multi-hooped designs are still popular and so easy to embroider. There was also a Bernina Card published with her designs!
Over the years we have made many friends and have helpers all over the world! The internet opened an amazing big world to us… we remember the days when embroidery designs were few and the software had it’s limitations… we can’t believe what the machines can do today! So much fun!
If you have been with us on this journey… I say welcome to the next 10 years of creativity together. If you are just joining us we hope you enjoy every moment you spend with us
