b70 DECO + b79 Tutorial – Prepare for embroidery (8/11)In this tutorial video, you'll learn how to prepare your bernette 70 DECO or bernette 79 for embroidery. We'll show you how to attach the embroidery module to your bernette embroidery machine and how to remove it. With the b79 you also have to remove the presser foot and the sewing needle. Next, in the video, you'll see how to attach the Straight / CutWork stitch plate, mount the embroidery foot, and insert the embroidery needle. Then we continue with the hooping of the fabric in an embroidery hoop suitable for the design. From the correct positioning with the embroidery template to the closing of the quick-release device of the hoop, you will be shown exactly how to do each step.
b70 DECO + b79 Tutorial – Embroidering (9/11)In the embroidery menu of your bernette 70 DECO or b79 you will find fonts and integrated embroidery designs. Other designs can be selected from a connected USB drive. The size of the embroidery, the required embroidery time and the number of colors are displayed on the screen of your bernette embroidery machine.
In the tutorial video, you'll see how to scale, move, and freely position a selected design. You will also be shown the next steps: select a suitable bobbin thread, switch to the stitch out screen, attach the embroidery hoop, and thread the first required color.
If desired, a basting stitch may be added around the embroidery design or along the hoop. Then you start the embroidery process. The embroidery speed can be adjusted via the slide speed control or the "maximum embroidery speed" in the display.
What do you need to do if your thread breaks or the bobbin is empty? In the video, you can see how to rethread and simply continue to embroider.
b70 DECO + b79 Tutorial – Combine embroidery motifs (10/11)With your bernette 70 DECO or bernette 79 you can also combine several embroidery designs and embroidered lettering. Find out how to do it with this tutorial video.
Open the first embroidery design and then add more patterns or lettering. If the combined stitch pattern has become too large for the selected hoop, this will be indicated by a red border.
The embroidery designs can be individually selected and edited, for example, text can also be curved or the character spacing adjusted. Once you've edited and positioned all the motifs you want, you can save your design combination for later use.
