Stitch Painter Training Aids
Stitch Painter Training Aids are designed to assist you in learning and using your Stitch Painter software
Stitch Painter Lesson Book
This CD contains a PDF book that is the result of online lessons on the use of Stitch Painter on Compuserve. Susan Lazear wrote these lessons with two goals in mind. The first was to teach people how to use Stitch Painter in a ‘project’ oriented approach. The second goal was to teach some basic design skills. (You will be able to print the PDF book or copy it to your computer for easier access.)
The book is written in a step-by-step format and includes 4 extended lessons:
• Motif Development
• Simple Repeat Design
• More Repeat Design and Color.
