Door prizes will be given away.
BERNINA's DesignWorks Software Suite offers three modules, CutWork, PaintWork and CrystalWork components, turning your embroidery machine into a mixed media tool. Each module may be used independently or in combination with the others. With CutWork, shapes, patterns and designs are cut from multiple layers of fabric. PaintWork allows the application of pen drawings to fabric and textiles. Crystal appliqué patterns are created for textiles and garments using CrystalWork.

Debbi Lashbrook is a BERNINA educator and trainer, and one of BERNINA's Experts on its WeAllSew blog. Her blog posts include "Spirograph Quilt," "Decorative Stitches à la CutWork" and "Audition Appliqué Fabrics in Your Embroidery Software."
