Every summer BERNINA hosts a convention to inspire and educate BERNINA dealers， introducing them to new products and promotions. One of the most exciting and useful new products introduced this year was The Big Book of Embroidery. This book is a？guide to BERNINA machine embroidery. It’；s a comprehensive machine embroidery book with a wealth of information for the novice as well as the experienced stitcher. Full disclosure： As editor of this book， I am a bit biased. I’ve been working on it for the past year and it’；s finally here! I’；m thrilled that it is now available to everyone at your local BERNINA stores.
The book starts at the beginning with information about designs， stabilizers， embroidery suppliespersonalized father's day gifts， and hooping methods. From there you explore basic editing functions that includes resizing， rotating， and Word Art.accent pillow case baby burlap outdoor
Then you move on to more exciting functions such as Color Wheel， Endless Embroidery， and Importing Decorative Stitches.
Next comes design placement. Using low tech methods with hoop templates and paper design templates is a good place to start. Then you can move on to high tech machine functions such as Virtual Positioning and Pinpoint Placement (on specific models).
After you get past the basics， you’re ready to explore stitching techniques. These include In-the-Hoop Projects， Lettering and Monogramming， Freestanding Designs， Piecing， Quilting， Applique and more!

So whether you lack the space, the time or the energy this year for full-scale decorating, there are plenty of equally festive (and easier) ways to add merriment to your rooms without a tree. And if you do have a tree, but you’d love ideas for decorating in other rooms, read on.
