Take a look at our incredible weekly guest list and you’ll understand where this industry goes for news, interviews and the heartbeat of garment decorating. Thanks for listening!
Embroidery Education and Fun
Terry: As frequently happens with the Reggies, we learned about your channel from your dedicated followers’ nominations. What made you decide to take that route for teaching?
Aaron: Unlike some of the online content we’ve seen in your space, you have not only tips videos but structured, project-driven classes that your ‘students’ can participate in. What do you think your students get from these scheduled classes and how does this integrate with the Facebook Group?
Terry: In our pre-interview, you said your teaching style is geared to make people feel confident and ‘at ease’ – What’s different about the way you teach that gives people that confidence?
Aaron: Many of your projects and classes are more what we might expect to see in the craft/home embroidery market. Though a lot of the skills in digitizing are applicable on both sides of the home/commercial split, do you see a lot of classic logo work or apparel decorators taking an interest in your groups?
Terry: We have seen a lot of crossover lately between embroidery hobbyists and cottage-industry decorators. What do you wish that the commercial folks would teach the home/cottage industry embroiderers?
Aaron: So what is the one tip you would give someone who came to you with little or no experience to get them going?
Terry: What is the most common Facebook Group question you get?
Aaron: What final thoughts would you like to share with the listeners, and where can people find more from you and OML Embroidery?
Terry: Thanks again, Sue for coming on today and sharing insights about your channel.
