Hello my Sewing Bees, in today's lesson I'm going to show you just how easy it is to digitize a flower with the BERNINA Embroidery Software 9;
Let's have some fun!
Download the artwork for this lesson.
Save the flower file to a folder in your Embroidery Library. Remember its location.
To start a new design, open the BERNINA Embroidery Software 9.
Switch to "Embroidery Canvas" from the Home Screen. Click the hoop symbol at the top right to display the hoop.
Change hoop to the Small size:
> Right click on "Show Hoop/Settings"
Choose Hoop drop down menu
> BERNINA Small Hoop, 50x72
Make sure "Show Hoop" is checked.
Select the "Auto-Digitize" Toolbox
> Insert Artwork
Navigate to the location you have saved your flower artwork.
> Select Flower.jpg
> Click "Open"
With the artwork selected, enter 1.188” in the width box. Typing the inch mark in the box will automatically size the artwork in inches rather than mm. Because proportional lock is selected by default, the artwork will size proportionally.
Press the key "Enter" on your keyboard to activate the size change.
Under the "Auto-Digitize" Toolbox
> Select Instant Auto-Digitize
Your design will instantly be digitized!
Save your file in your Embroidery Library
> Save As…
Send the design to your machine by exporting to a USB stick with “Card/Machine Write” or via WiFi with “Send to BERNINA WiFi Device”.
The WiFi Device needs to be configured on the PC before using it for the first time. Watch this video tutorial to learn how to set up your device and successfully send an embroidery file to your machine.
