People ask me, “What’s the best way to learn my software?” My answer is always, “Use it!” You can read, watch videos and go to classes but until you start using your software as often as possible (ideally everyday!), you really won’t be comfortable. You just have to get in there and do it!
If you don’t know where to begin, start with the free monthly projects that are available through the My Inspiration Today screen. When you open your software, click on the Free Monthly Projects icon on the opening screen.
You’ll arrive at the Inspired by Dime website.
Scroll down the page to view the download link. Click on the link to download the project.
Once downloaded, you’ll find two PDF files in the folder – instructions for preparing the design in the software and the other for embroidering/sewing the project.
Tamara Evans, Inspiration Consultant, has created these projects just for you. She openly shares her wealth of knowledge in each project. You’ll find quick steps to efficiently edit the designs, secrets to controlling the stitches in the software plus methods of good practice to cut down on errors.
The software lessons in all of these projects are designed to help you learn how to use the software’s features. Even if you’re not tempted to stitch the project – take the time to work the software lesson. What you learn can be applied to any project you would like to stitch. And before you know it – you’ll be comfortable with the icons and features.

As a new user – this is great information for me to learn the software. Realizing that common keyboard commands also work was nice to know.
Thanks for such a good program and learning tools!

Great idea…but post some lessons that I don’t have to buy something first…just the lesson on how to use software…to me this in only a sales pitch to get you to buy the items used

It is very helpful to have something like “Perfect Stitch Viewer” in order to find the designs that you have saved in your library. This cuts down on searching time and leaves more time to digitize and create. Highly recommend.
