Training on Embroidery Software

Last Weekend the first training on BERNINA embroidery software took place.

A long time I was searching for the perfect place, that’s why the courses only took place at Stoffekontor in Leipzig. But I wanted to held courses in South Germany as well.

I found this wonderful place owned by a friend who is using this for photographers courses.

Now me too can use this place for Embroidery software courses.

Have look at the great living kitchen, what a place to spend the breaks.


ll the catering is done by a sewing friend of mine, Susanne.

Look like beautiful the house is decorated.

The training room has everything I need for my courses

  • a powerful projector
  • a big screen
  • place enough for each trainee
  • daylight

In summary: The perfect place!

Although the course was announced on short notice we had 7 participants, from the north (sea) to Swabia and from Switzerland.

The number of participants should be from 6 to 10 so it was perfect..

Lunch with Quiche, summer salad and raspberry Tiramisu.

We had a lot of time for talks.

We all enjoyed these 2 days. Some of the participants I will see in October for the Advanced training course.

And I already got feedback and snapshots of first own projects from the participants.

The trainings are held in German, I am sorry about this, but my English is not that good for a live course.

The next base course is scheduled for June, the first Advanced course for October.

More details can be found here: Grundlagenkurs und des Aufbaukurses.

Winter Stars and my new Embroidery Training

For sure you know Christmas stars and snow stars… What about Winter Stars?

Do you know them?

Let me show you my idea of Winter Stars:


They are tender, filigree and fragile.

The satin stitches are looking like little pearls. You can see this best in the star collection for the 10x10cm hoop.

Can you see my yellow pearls?


The motifs for this oven cloth are taken from the 18x30cm file.



Of course I made these stars also for the 13x18cm hoop. You can chose from 3 different sizes. Or you save and take them discounted in one of our bundles?



From today on you can get our Winter Stars in 3 sizes and 2 sets in our Stickbaer Shop.


While you are reading these lines I am on the road, again. This time in direction to Leipzig Stoffekontor.

It is time for me to hold my every-year November Bernina Embroidery Software training. This year we are talking about V7.

As the course was full so early, and there are so many on the waiting list, I will repeat the course next year. Again with Anja in Stoffekontor.

I love her, and of course I stay at her comfortable home.

Presents for Anja and her 3 daughters are prepared and packed.


The course material is ready as well…


… and the USB stick loaded with all files and graphics needed for the course.


I wish you all a nice weekend, enjoy the time and be creative!

Liebe Grüße
