BERNINA Software Inspirations 2023-24

BERNINA Software Inspirations is a series of VIRTUAL classes designed to expand your embroidery software digitizing skills. Join us each month from the comfort of your home as we explore a new technique and how it can be applied to your projects.

All classes will be recorded, and registered students will receive a copy of the recording after each class.


Note: BERNINA Embroidery Software V9 Designer Plus or Creator versions may be used. The Creator version may not have all functions available for all lessons. 

Pre-requisite: You must have at least a working knowledge of the software, and it's highly recommended that you have already taken the BERNINA Software V9 Mastery class. Please contact the instructor, DeeAnn Forrest, at if you have questions.
