BERNINA’s DesignWorks Software Suite is comprised of three components—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.
