BERNINA’s DesignWorks Software Suite is comprised of three components including CutWork, PaintWork, and CrystalWork that turn any embroidery machine into a multimedia tool. With CutWork, shapes, patterns and designs can be cut from multiple layers of fabric. PaintWork allows the application of pen drawings to fabric and textiles. CrystalWork gives the ability to create crystal appliqué patterns for textiles and garments.
BERNINA Educator Kellie Rushing began sewing at age 5 when her grandmother taught her how to hand-embroider. After marrying and becoming a stay-at-home mom, Kellie used her skill to start a home-based business making custom draperies. She fell in love with her first BERNINA in 1988 and BERNINA has been her passion ever since. Kellie has been a BERNINA Dealer, a freelance educator, and a BERNINA national tradeshow team member.
Lola Pink Fabrics is an authorized BERNINA Dealer offering sales and service of the entire line of BERNINA products, and classes for people of all skill levels.
