  • Re: Bernina embroidery module

    Donna, I don't know why Bernina only put the 5mm stitches on the 440QE, the decorative stitches are so small, it is hardly worth using them. And there are a lot of them. At least my Pfaff has a lot of the pretty stitches and they are the 9 mm. Sounds like you have the best of both. But I do enjoy the BSR and that is the primary reason I got it.

    Hi Nana, I, too, like the 9mm stitch which my Pfaff has, that Bernina 5 mm is just so tiny. If you read Donna's reply, you will understand the "dongle". I love to do crazy quilts as well, I have two of them going, also a Christmas wreath with silks, lace, decorative stitches. I don't do handwork any more so the decorative stitches

    Hi Kelley - I have heard others say they love the Viking software. I had a Viking before I got my Pfaff and I loved that machine. But it wasn't embroidery. Good to hear from all of my fellow quilters. What a great place to exchange information and ideas. Dot

    Hi Donna - You live in a great little town, I really like Winthrop and the gorgeous Methow Valley. I live in Gig Harbor, another beautiful area. Washington is the best and most beautiful place to live. Thanks for clearing up what a dongle is, now I understand what its' purpose is. I gave away my laptop to my granddaughter when hers broke, so I would

    Hi Nana, I really don't know about the calibration, it is just what I was told yesterday by the gal at the Bernina store. She may have meant that the calibration is just for the particular model. For instance, your 435 module would not work on a 440. She talked about needing a dongle, which I don't know what that funny word means. I really like

    Thank you, Carey. I haven't tried country wide but my local dealer told me this afternoon, that they never get in just a module. You would also need a dongle and software for it. Used ones, never. They have to be calibrated to each machine, best price I could get was $999.for a new one for my machine. Oh well, I tell myself I really didn't want

    Hi Gini - I see you are a neighbor in Idaho. Beautiful state. I have to learn how youall get the pix on your post, and the cool signatures. Better go to a question area if I can find it. Really nice to get posts from you so quickly. I know quilters are very helpful and warm people. I will be spending some time here, I am sure. Dot

    Hi Joyce: That is a good question for me to ask as I am calling dealers around Seattle, Tacoma, etc. I am sure to enjoy this site. Years ago I was in a quilting website and made some good friends there. It is interesting to read all the suggestions, questions and it is an opportunity to learn. Dot

    Hi Marlene: Thanks for the ideas. There are a lot of Bernina dealers around Puget Sound area and I will try calling around. I tried Craigslist, but nothing there. Nothing on EBay, either. Dot

  • Bernina embroidery module

    Hi, this is my first post. This sounds like an interesting place. I live in WA state and have been quilting for a lot of years. I just have bought a Bernina 440 QE this year and love it, especially for the BSR. I have thought of trying to find an embroidery module and wonder if anyone here has a used one for sale? I have never used one of these, can't
