Interested in viewing the images/panels of a third example that I used for testing the BERNINA Toolbox? If so, click below.
  • I was provided (on my computer) with a previously - digitized file (A "Flamingo" -- the bird!). The file was made available, via the "BERNINA Experience" Website (USA and Europe).

     

  • The embroidery file did not include the (above) shown-words/text. The Toolbox was used to add the words.

     

  • Ensure the new design will fit within a particular embroidery hoop.

     

  • Export the BERNINA Toolbox design to the Computer's folder for Saving / Use via USB, etc. on the embroidery machine later.

Kimberbell Embroidery Club

Are you new to embroidery and want to learn fun techniques? Our monthly Kimberbell Club is the perfect place for you. Each month you will complete a different embroidery or in-the-hoop project. Kimberbell designs are clever, whimsical and a fun way to learn different embroidery techniques.

Tucker University

In each Tucker University Class, a different Studio 180 Design tool will be taught. You will cut and make 4 inch units so each month you can combine and create new blocks. Each class will build upon the previous one, making design possibilities endless. (You can end up with a coordinated sampler when you are finished if you use the same fabric collection.)

Now that you have a BSR, take it out of the box and get started using it.
