BERNINA DesignWorks software opens up three completely new worlds and dimensions! Although this software is not a classic embroidery software, it supports three creative applications – CutWork, PaintWork, and CrystalWork – that are only possible on an embroidery machine with the embroidery module. So why not use your embroidery machine to cut, paint or create rhinestone motifs? Yes, you read that right.

DesignWorks allows you to do all this, for example, cutting out intricate patterns and shapes from fabric on your machine. For this, you only need the CutWork tool. Simply mount this small mini-knife on your embroidery machine instead of the needle, and then cut out the pattern step-by-step. You can also cut several layers out at once, for example for cutting out identical pieces for patchworking. Another possibility is to paint patterns on your embroidery machine. To do this, the PaintWork tool, a holder for a textile pen, is mounted on the machine instead of the needle. Textile pens are available in many different colors, allowing you to paint fantastic, colorful motifs precisely on your fabric. You'll love it!

CrystalWork allows you to create templates for a wide range of rhinestone designs. For this, the CrystalWork tool is mounted on the sewing machine instead of the needle. With this small punching tool and a special CrystalWork film instead of fabric, the desired pattern is punched into the material as a series of small holes. Iron-on rhinestones are put into this hole pattern template and the entire thing is placed onto adhesive film. The stones stick to the film in the shape of the desired pattern and can then finally be ironed onto the denim jacket, T-shirt, sweatshirt, or blouse. It doesn't get more individual than that and it's also great fun!
