Your Instructor


Hi I am Paula!

I love teaching! And, I especially love to teach people to learn to digitize embroidery designs using Floriani FTCU.

I taught myself how to digitize with Floriani FTCU 10 years ago. I really enjoy taking the digitizing process and breaking it down into small easy to-do steps. I want to teach each my students exactly how I learned to create my own designs - one step at a time!

My goal is to share all the digitizing skills that I have learned and to teach you how to create your own amazing embroidery designs!

I hope you enjoy these classes!
