If you have a Bernina sewing machine with an embroidery unit and the software DesignerPlus v7 or v8 you can create your own personal embroideries for quilts, pictures and a lot of other things like bags, purses, tea or coffee cosies. In this workshop we will go through all the basic steps of the software. You’ll learn how to work creatively with text, draw your own designs, make designs based on pictures or drawings that are loaded into the software and how to organise the sewing sequence. The software part of the workshop will be shown on my laptop and with a projector, so that everybody has a chance to see what is
