After April's Bernina Software Inspirations class, those present requested that class content be revised to a beginning level approach. First, the focus will be to learn the icons, tools, toolboxes, etc by use of a reference list or “cheat sheet.” Second, the next class, May 30, 2013 content will be the Bernina Embroidery Software 9 Designer Plus Workbook, a 31 page reference and lessons. For classes after the Mastery class, we hope to redo the Software Inspirations lessons to more user friendly lessons and/or tailor lessons to the group’s interests and further skill building in the software. Your input is greatly appreciated.
