Default Anyone know where I can learn to use my embrodiery machine?

I bought a Janome embroidery machine from a quilt shop in Florida. The shop
is too far away to get lessons and the machine just sits here looking at me.
I'm scared to death of it. Anyone know where I can get lessons in South
Florida near Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood area? I don't mind paying for some
private lessons if I could find somebody. Thnx for your help!

Please tell us which machine you have. I have the Janome 9000 and
didn't touch the embroidery part for at least two years after I got it!!
I never got lessons because DH bought the machine from an online
source so The Babies could give it to me for Mother's Day. I just
e-mailed the Janome people direct with my questions. One nice woman
even called me on the phone and talked me through how to do some of the
things. I now have all sorts of designs cards and have done tons of
different embroidery stuff and never had a problem. CiaoMeow ^;;^

Jan.. I bought my Janome 300E from Sunshine. The problem is that Fay can
only give me lessons before the shop opens or after 4:00. The times are not
convenient for me to drive there from Ft Lauderdale. She is just too darn
busy to have lessons at other times. I did get some good suggestions from
the group and I think I will try Yahoo groups and also call Janome direct.
I can believe I let this machine intimidate me.

Embroidery machines are not that difficult to use. The hardest part is
learning about threads, designs and stabilizers and you can do that by
joining mailing lists and listening to those who know and learning
from the mistakes of those who do not.

Stabilizing and using good quality bobbin thread and embroidery thread
is a must. Start off trying a small design on some squares of fabric.
You can always put them into quilts later.

Don't let it intimidate you. If you can't get lessons in person, I
recommend, for starting out, that you read your manual and then Nancy Zeiman'
s "Machine Embroidery with Confidence"
