Work Books and Lessons

A word from Sue:

Congratulations on your purchase of your V9 Software! We appreciate your continued support of our BERNINA Software Workbooks, which I began writing back in the early 2000s starting with Version 3. The software has been so much fun to learn and teach. At the time I started providing lessons, we put out one lesson a week, for free, on our website, and offered a printed version as well. Back then there wasn’t as much education available as there is now! These days you have access to so many wonderful tutorials, especially the ones that Debbi Lashbrook writes for BERNINA. Her lessons are clear and precise, and really teach you how to use your software. You can talk to your dealer about signing up for Software Inspirations. 

With that being said, I will not be writing a workbook for the Version 9 software. Our small family business has appreciated the kindness and support of those that purchased the previous versions, which are still available in digital format here on our website. While we understand that my approach to teaching works well with many people, I am confident that you, in conjunction with your local BERNINA dealer, and the help tutorials from, will be highly successful in learning and enjoying your new software.
