BERNINA PaintWork Software
Note: Not compatible with Windows 10 Creators Update, we plan to introduce a Windows 10 compatible DesignWorks update by the end of 2017.
With Windows 7 and 8 DesignWorks is still running properly. For further information about Windows 10, click here.
Creativity in three new dimensions
With PaintWork software, individual patterns, motifs, or images can be created and edited which can then be independently painted in with your BERNINA sewing and embroidery machine. Your imagination knows no limits. To achieve the painted end result, you will need a BERNINA machine capable of embroidery and the PaintWork tool, which you will insert in place of the presser foot. Break the mold and combine your embroideries with PaintWork. You will be amazed at the gorgeous effects you can achieve – whether on garments, accessories, or quilts.
BERNINA DesignWorks is a software set consisting of three modules that can be applied independently of each other. BERNINA DesignWorks supports the personalized creative construction of patterns and forms as well as the editing of completed motifs and designs on your PC. The DesignWorks family includes the modules CutWork, PaintWork, and CrystalWork.
Painting with the PaintWork tool
The PaintWork tool is attached in place of the presser foot on an embroidery-capable BERNINA. It is a retainer for textile pens in four different sizes.
The PaintWork motif can be loaded using a USB flash drive in the embroidery machine. Using the embroidery module and the PaintWork tools, the motif can then easily be painted by your BERNINA.
