Course: Amaya Machine OS

Class Length: 2 Days
Offered 2 to 4 times a month at most US Training Facilities.

This class is usually combined with the 2-day DesignShop: Lettering, & Editing class, to allow customers to take both classes during the same week. Customers who do not wish to take the DesignShop portion, may only attend the first 2 days. If you own both AMAYA and DesignShop, we recommend that you attend all 4 days to get the most out of your Melco products.

The Amaya Machine OS class is part of the 2 Day software/application course offered to new and existing embroiderers that purchased the Amaya machine either new or used from Melco.  AMAYA's operating system is a visual based software that has many unique utilities that enhance the embroidery process. You will learn how to load a design;  set the colors; and how to select a hoop Once the design is all ready to sew you can watch the design sew stitch-by-stitch live on the computer screen.
