Discover new creative horizons with BERNINA CutWork software

  • Create your own motifs

Creativity in three new dimensions

With CutWork software, you can create and edit forms that can be cut out and, for example, appliquéd. Your imagination knows no limits. To achieve the desired results, you will need a BERNINA machine capable of embroidery and the CutWork tool, which you will insert in place of the needle. Break the mold and combine your embroideries with CutWork. You will be amazed at the gorgeous effects you can achieve – whether on garments, accessories, or quilts.


BERNINA DesignWorks is a software set consisting of three modules that can be applied independently of each other. BERNINA DesignWorks supports the personalized creative construction of patterns and forms as well as the editing of completed motifs and designs on your PC. The DesignWorks family includes the modules CutWork, PaintWork, and CrystalWork.

Cutting out with the CutWork tool

The CutWork tool will be attached in place of the
needle on an embroidery-capable BERNINA.
It is a small knife that rotates in four directions in
order to change the respective direction of cutting.
The CutWork motif can be loaded using a USB flash
drive in the embroidery machine.
Using the embroidery module and the CutWork tool,
the motif can then be easily cut out by your BERNINA.
With the CutWork tool, up to 15 layers can be cut
out at once, depending on the material.
