Learn how to get the most from
your PFAFF 5D Software

Software Savvy is a monthly series of lessons taught by Phil Carlton & Don Lusk.

Each month’s lesson will utilize the various tools and features from the different modules in the 5D Embroidery Suite. We also utilize various hoops, accessory feet, and embroidery techniques.

Required software is the PFAFF 5D Suite or the Husqvarna Viking 5D Professional software. Our classes utilize the latest features, so your software should have the latest updates installed.

The goal of Software Savvy is to help you learn the features of your 5D Software so you'll feel comfortable combining and editing purchased designs or even digitizing your own original designs. Students will need a laptop computer with the PFAFF 5D Suite or Viking 5D Professional software installed with all the current updates.

We offer three Software Savvy classes each month:
- 3rd Saturday of the month at 10:30 a.m.
- 4th Tuesday of the month at 2 p.m.
- 4th Tuesday of the month at 5 p.m. - (this session is recommended for software beginners.)
