Interested in viewing the images/panels of a second example that I used for testing the BERNINA Toolbox? If so, click below.

Following, is what I tested/discuss in this example: 

  • Have access to a set of already-digitized Alphabet letters. Move these letters to the BERNINA Toolbox.
  • Choose three of the letters ("D", "J" and "S" (in this example) and, in turn, move the three letters into a new design within the BERNINA Toolbox.
  • Arrange the three letters to be: DSJ
  • Make the "D" and the "J" smaller-sized than the "S": DSJ.
  • Ensure the new design will fit within a particular embroidery hoop.
  • Rotate the set-up-now design to fit within the chosen embroidery hoop (when the design will be ultimately stitched out).
  • Finalize the design as desired, working with design as DSJ (grouped together) or "D" or "S" or "J" ("un-grouped").
  • Review the planned colors for the design and other specifications of the design.
  • Export the BERNINA Toolbox design to the Computer's folder for Saving / Use via USB, etc. on the embroidery machine later.
