I have two Bernina machines:

1530 - I use for quilting and basic sewing, but it is basically a backup machine or a loaner. It just didn't seem worth the trade in value, so I kept it. I've really been happy with that decision too (to keep it).

730 - I use primarily use this machine for embroidery, quilting and sometimes for basic sewing.

And I have the Artista Designer Plus SW. I have been able to digitize basic designs and am continually to learn. While I like the training CD that Bernina provided, and I consider myself very PC literate, I'd like to take some SW classes. But I haven't been able to find any in my area. This is what triggered me to think that there could be benefits of creating a group forum on SICK to network with others that have this SW and/or Bernina machines.

I also have a Janome and a serger (which I rarely use, so I forgot which brand it is).

I'm recently retired (2007) and enjoy machine embroidery, quilting, scuba diving, traveling and spending time with family & friends. I also enjoy doing voluntary/charity work for various causes.
Welcome Ethel. I'm happy to have you join us.
Linda,

Welcome to our new little group. Looks like you have the same machine and SW that I have. I too am learning to digitize, but have been able to do quite a few different types. But I'm far from becoming an expert. Ultimately I'm hoping we can create a forum to share tricks and learning opportunities....and make this group into a way to help those of us with Bernina and/or Designer Plus SW.

Do you have a current digitizing and/or embroidery project you are working on?

I have several embroidery projects that I'm working on, but my latest focus has been to create redwork style digitizing that I can use on quilt tops. I'm also trying to build my skill on digitizing for stitch angle, texture and colors (big step for me to do this without a manual).
Welcome Charlotte. Yes you may join our group of Bernina/Artista SW users. I too have the 730E.
