On behalf of the entire BERNINA team and all the BERNINA bloggers, I wish you a very happy Christmas. Enjoy the festive season with your loved ones!
I would also like to take this opportunity to thank you for your loyalty and your interest in our topics. We are delighted that you read and write along with us here! 2016 has been an eventful year for BERNINA and the BERNINA Blog. We have launched new products, such as the L 450 and L 460 overlockers, the BERNINA 700 and the adjustable ruler foot No. 72, the blog authors have published countless tutorials, many of them including free downloads, there was a new embroidery alphabet by Tatjana and instructions for the new embroidery software, and – what is especially pleasing for us in Steckborn – there were lots of great posts made by you in our community section. It is also worth mentioning the “Red and White” competition again at this point, and the response, which really bowled us over.
Thank you for participating in this eventful year on the BERNINA Blog, as a reader, but also very actively with your comments, project pictures and Facebook likes etc!
We hope you will also call in and see us next year and wish you a Happy New Year!
BERNINA Embroidery Software 8 prize draw
This article is for door 24, making it the last in our Advent calendar. The theme of the calendar is “Everything a child could wish for!” As we want to bring special joy at Christmas to you as well, this article is a exception to our theme. It is, at most, only indirectly linked to children. We are giving away a copy of our new embroidery software.
Here’s how you can take part:
Just write a comment below saying that you would like to take part in the prize draw. Please also let us know in your comment what you would like to use the embroidery software for.
You can enter a comment up to 2 January. The prize draw will take place on 3 January. The prize will then be delivered, making it a slightly late Christmas present…
BERNINA Embroidery Software 8
Our new embroidery software is full of new features that you can use to create your own embroidery designs – no matter what brand of embroidery machine you have. With the new colour photo embroidery function, you can transform a photo into an embroidered image. Or you can use the 3D sphere effect to create three-dimensional patterns. Or you can use the new couching function to turn wool yarns into an embroidery motif that literally stands out. And with puffy lettering, you can create a sophisticated look. Thanks to the CutWork function, you can also use the BERNINA Embroidery Software 8 to cut out patterns, for example for broderie anglaise or an appliqué. Other great effects can be achieved using PunchWork (felting) and StumpWork, which involves incorporating wire.
These are just brief descriptions of a few highlights of the new embroidery software.
For more information about installation or updating older software versions, please contact your BERNINA dealer or visit www.bernina.com/V8. A free trial version of the embroidery software, which you can use freely for 30 days, is also available on our website.
We look forward to receiving your comments and are keeping our fingers crossed for you for the prize draw in the new year.
