Bernina Stitch Designer

My Bernina 790 has a very cool feature called Stitch Designer. Today, I took a class at Bernina Connection where I was able to explore a few of the Stitch Designer features. The Stitch Designer allowed me to create stitches by drawing right on the machine touch screen.

Today, I learned how to alter existing stitches by adding additional elements or move stitch points to create a new stitch. I was able to write my name on the touch screen and stitch it out. The circles were also drawn on the touch screen and by removing the 9 mm restraint, I was able to stitch the circles using the Sideways Motions foot. The larger circles design is almost 2 inches wide. I was able to alter stitch #1329, a blanket stitch, to have a slanted appearance which really could be a nice edge stitch on a ribbon edge.
