Who needs software? Anyone who embroiders! (And you can get it for free if you don’t have it! Keep reading for details.)
You need software for 3 reasons (plus a whole lot more – but that is another blog post).
#1 – Basic editing, including sizing a design, mirror-imaging, changing colors, etc.
#2 – Printing paper templates to use as guides for embroidery placement.
# 3 – Transferring a design from the computer or CD to the embroidery machine in the proper format.
You can do all of these with the free (yes, I said FREE) Artlink Embroidery Software by BERNINA.
Here’s how to download your free embroidery software:
Click on the Installation Manual ArtLink V7 for instructions on how to download the files.
Next click the BERNINA ArtLink V7ON tab to download the program to your computer.
ArtLink 7 is an easy program to use, but for instructions download the ArtLink Basics eBook. This publication provides specific steps for editing designs, printing templates, and sending designs to the embroidery machine.
