Are you curious about BERNINA Software? BERNINA embroidery software lets you design, import, edit, manage, and freely configure your embroidery designs, and much more – the ideal tool for creating your own distinctive embroidery motifs. The powerful BERNINA embroidery software works in a similar manner to a graphics program, giving you completely free rein in turning your ideas into reality. From the very first stitch, you’ll be able to visualize the result, select matching threads, print out your designs, and share them with others. BERNINA embroidery software furnishes you with the creative tools for extraordinary embroidery results! We will have samples out for display, and give an overview of what can be created.
