BERNINA Embroidery Software V6-Beyond the Limits


Join us and learn to take your embroidery designs beyond the limits of your embroidery hoops.  Using the tools available in BERNINA Embroidery Software V6, begin with a design, rescale it, apply the multi-hooping option, split your files, transfer your files to the machine, and then witness what happens when you send it to the machine. WOW!  See the entire process from beginning to end...from the software to embroidery of the project.  Once you know the tips and techniques, you can take your projects beyond the limits with confidence!


This a FREE Webinar from BERNINA!  You have three options to view this webinar and below are the links and times.  The first two are for you to view in your own home and the last one is the time for seeing it here at BERNINA Main Street.  If you would like to see this webinar here at the store, please call or email and let us know you are coming.

 My Embroidery Classes


You have asked for it and here it is!  This is your BERNINA Owner's Class for your Embroidery Machine or Module.  This is the new series from BERNINA that takes the place of the former Mastery Series.  You will need to bring your machine, embroidery module, and all accessories, including hoops, and good quality embroidery thread (any color).  Fabric will be provided.  Since this is our first time teaching in this series, there may be another class scheduled to finish up.  If you want to come you must pre-register as soon as possible as space is limited.  If you have a BERNINA aurora (430, 440QE, or 450) you must also bring your laptop computer with the BERNINA software that came with your embroidery module ALREADY LOADED.  If you need help, see me this week as we will not have time in the class to load software.  As soon as you sign up, I will email you the contents of My BERNINA Embroidery Workbook so that you can make your copies for class.  You may also come in and pick up the CD.  During class we will be using a Power Point presentation of the class and you could wait to get your CD at class.  You do not necessarily have to have the paper copies, your choice.  Pre-registration is a MUST, MUST, MUST!!

BERNINA Stitch Regulator (BSR) 


Do you have a BERNINA Stitch Regulator?  Comfortable in using it?  This class on the BSR is an extra FREE! class that BERNINA Main Street offers to it's customers.  Bring your machine and BSR with all of it's soles and get ready to have some fun.  You may bring a thread of your choice, but fabric and batting will be provided.  Pre-registration for this class is a MUST! because space is limited.  Class is limited to 6 students.  If this class fills we will schedule another one.


A look ahead:

We have scheduled our first Boot Camp of the Spring.  Saturday, April 14 beginning at 9:30am.  This class is limited to 6 students so register early.  This class is the first two parts of the My Bernina Classes series.  You may pick up a CD of the handouts, I will email them to you, or you can pick up the CD at the class.  You do not need the handouts to participate.  They will be easily viewed on a Power Point presentation.


I think this email is long enough--so--see ya!

Thought and Scripture for the Day 

Thought for the Day:  "There are days that you don't have a song in your heart.  Sing anyway.  Emory Austin 


Scripture for the Day:  ...and provide for those who grieve in Zion-to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair.  Isaiah 61:3  NIV
