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.
