What Is the Membership Club

Hey, I am Paula and I am creator of the Embroidery Gatherings Membership Club!

For the past 10 years I have been using the Floriani FTCU software and creating my own embroidery designs.

I have spent hours, days, weeks and eventually months and years teaching myself to digitize.

During this time and completely for fun, I started teaching digitizing to a group of my 3 close friends.

"Thanks so much for your lessons. I was so frustrated after I purchased FTCU because I could not make sense of anything. You make what looks to be impossible so easy to understand. I am a beginner who wants to eventually sell my designs. And now, I am going to be able to do that!"
