Embroidery Connection proudly organized their Basic and Advanced Punching
Classes at the Asian Embroidery School in November and December 2003
respectively. Six students from India and Thailand praised the classes
as the best they ever attended.
The classes were conducted on Schiffli embroidery and included basics
about embroidery machines, designing & punching, as well as computer-aided
punching systems. The learned the traditional punching process with
huge punching boards and the new punching trend using computer punching
systems such as ProLace.
Students were happy that they could also handle an embroidery machine.
They learned how to fill shuttles, how to maintain the machine, how
to run embroidery orders with ProDrive (a digital solution for mechanical
automat embroidery machines).
“We had although one student without any experience in Schiffli
embroidery, however, she quickly picked up the Schiffli punching skills
with ProLace.” Günter Heinzle, the trainer of the EC punching
In the classes, Günter first allowed his students to start designing
an image for 15 to 20 minutes on their own. Then he demonstrated how
to design the same image in the proper way. Next the students could
correct their original designs with the newly acquired knowledge. A
discussion session followed where students shared their problems and
made further enquiries to improve their skills. Last but not least the
students produced their own artwork on the embroidery machine.
a designer, I need to know how to work together with punchers. I must
also know about the differences between Multihead and Schiffli embroidery.
I have no experience in Schiffli, but I want to learn Schiffli Embroidery
in order to embark myself to a better career.” Patel Toral said,
an Indian student in the EC punching class.
She also said that the class was expensive, but it was worth as the
training had exceeded her expectations and she knew it is an investment
for her “Long Term Future”.
The success of both punching classes encourages the
EC to continue to share their knowledge, skills and expertise to students
all over the world. The next class punching classes are scheduled for
May and June 2004. We invite everyone who wants to give his punching
skills a boost!
