Welcome to the EDS ON LINE class assignment area.

In this area you will find class assignments that pertain to the Wilcom classes conducted on-line by the Embroidery Design School. Students are welcome to download assignments which pertain to their studies of CorelDraw taken through Strawberry Stitch Company's Embroidery Design School.

Completion of assignments is not a requirement of participating in class instruction. Class assignments are intended to supplement class time by providing the student either self-evaluation or instructor evaluation of their work performance.
