BERNINA PaintWork Tool

Show your colors with imagination

Creativity in three new dimensions

With the PaintWork tool, forms, patterns, and images are painted cleanly and precisely. Your imagination knows no limits. To achieve the desired results, you will need a BERNINA machine capable of embroidery and the PaintWork tool, which you will insert in place of the presser foot. Break the mold and combine your embroideries with PaintWork. You will be amazed at the gorgeous effects you can achieve – whether on garments, accessories, or quilts.


The BERNINA DesignWorks Software Suite and the companion accessory tools are compatible with the following BERNINA embroidery machine models:
B 560, B 580, B 750 QE, B 780, B 830 and B 880.

The following BERNINA embroidery machines are compatible with the CutWork accessory and software only:
artista 200/630/640/730, aurora 430/435/440/450, bernette 340 Deco or higher.

Various pens

The PaintWork tool serves as a retainer for textile pens of all types. The tool features four varying sizes (diameters). This allows fine, medium, thick, or extra wide lines to be painted. Using the embroidery module, the desired motif is painted by your BERNINA as if by an artist.

Paint individually

The motif becomes lighter or darker according to the selected line density. The denser the line, the deeper the colors will appear on the material. You can embellish anything you'd like just the way you want. Other materials such as leather, plastic, or paper can also be painted.

The PaintWork tool package includes

  • 1 PaintWork tool
  • 4 pen adapters in various sizes
  • 1 set of 10 textile pens

The BERNINA PaintWork tool accommodates most textile pens.
Edding 4600® textile pens are recommended for best results and available at most BERNINA stores.

Create your own motifs using the software

The PaintWork software offers numerous tools that make the individual editing or even the creation of your own motifs on the PC possible. Operating the software is simple and clear. A sequence manager indicates the order of the motif lines to be painted. In just a few steps, an image with amazing effects can be made out of your very own idea.
