Digital Quilting with Sketch


Laura demonstrates the Sketch module of Premier+ embroidery software to show how it can be perfect for creative quilting. This is a free workshop. Please note that this class was originally published in 2016 and since then software will likely have been updated, but hopefully you’ll still be able to use the ideas!

Approximate run time: 15 minutes

Presenter: Laura Kemshall

To try these ideas you'll need:

Premier+ Embroidery software that has the Sketch module (please see the note above about versions)

Sewing machine with embroidery unit and hoops

A quilt sandwich (top fabric, batting and backing)


Stabiliser (Laura usually uses a tearaway type)

Your usual sewing kit
