The Sewing Store
Software Sampler is a pre-recorded webinar conducted by the BERNINA Education Team.  Ten lessons will be presented that will show how BERNINA Embroidery Software 7 can be incorporated into every embroidery project.  When you come in the store to watch the webinar with us, you can have questions answered and see samples made from the current lesson.  This is a wonderful class for anyone who owns the software, whether beginner or advanced.  You will leave the class with a CD so you can review the lesson on your own time.
