  • Embird Sfumato allows easy and fast creation of multicolored portraits, landscapes, still lives and other designs from photos.
  • Student imports photo into the background of the working area and then draws Sfumato objects on top of the photo.
  • Sfumato objects have vector boundaries that are automatically filled with stitches. Photo-realistic effect is achieved with variable density of the thread flow.
  • Objects are filled with stitches so that thread forms looser or heavier meanders to create shading effects while fabric shows through the stitches. In general, the loose meanders are used on low density areas.
  • Special controls and paramaters are available to tune density and colors of Sfumato object.
  • Additional features like openings, carvings and color mask can be applied to achieve required stitch layout and texture.
  • Each Sfumato object can have 1-5 shades of its 'basic color' or user-defined shades. Chosing proper number of separate objects and proper number of shades within each object allows to achieve various coloring effects.
  • We will use a photo of David Kruiper a well know Komani-San (Khalahari Bushman) which you can download in lecture 1 to play along on your pc

Instructor Biography

Jacqui Viljoen, Teaching Bernina Embroidery Software @ School of Digitizing

Jacqui Viljoen has been teaching Fashion and Dress design since 1994. In 2004 she opened her Bernina Franchise in Benoni, South Africa and has been teaching Bernina Embroidery Software since. First as Bernina Dealer in Benoni South Africa in her studio in Benoni and as from 2009, online as Principal at School of Digitizing.

Like most dealers I had to work for a specific target, and sales had to be my first priority, which leads to not be able to give that exclusive and undivided attention on training in the Bernina Embroidery Software like you deserve....... well I wanted more time there, so much so that one day I decided this is it! I am out!

Sold the shop, took a leap year to discover and learn and research all I wanted to know about Bernina Embroidery Software, and as I grew into it the opportunity to start teaching Embird and Bernina embroidery software using Internet, Webinar, Skype etc came to me in the form and shape of hubby.

Oh, and computers? Well I still feel I only need to know enough to be able to run my Bernina embroidery software.... and to be honest: my backup support system is trustworthy, and not only me, but even you will benefit from me and my backup system.

First I started with the Bernina Embroidery Software, and my dream is to get hold of every frustrated and the feeling of helpless person who has the embroidery software and guide you through the fun and excitement we are suppose to have, not frustrations.

After one year in teaching the Bernina embroidery software V5 then, the need to help for basic Embird embroidery software classes crossed me too.

Immediately I started dreaming of seeing each Bernina embroidery software user in the world having a hard time understanding their program, I want to help all!

You should have fun, not a hard time.

I cannot describe in words the excitement I felt, and still do, and those of members joining us every time we tune in for a class on Bernina embroidery software from V5 and on wards with regular updates and later Bernina Cutwork Software.

It is overwhelming, exiting, amazing and fun!

I want to share my knowledge in Bernina embroidery software with the world, and Internet is the answer.

Wendy from Australia gets up at 3.00am in the mornings, she enjoys her Bernina embroidery software classes so much that she don't mind doing it.

She does not have to do it, She wants to do it. She loves to do it, and here is in her own words what she has to say about our Bernina embroidery software classes:

"" Hi Jacqui

My experience of being a member with Sewpride:- (this was the name I used before Schoolofdigitizing - same place, just a different name)

I am 75 yrs. old and have been sewing ever since I can remember.

When I retired 10 yrs ago I bought a new embroidery/machine (Janome) it broke down just before Christmas last year and I decided to buy the Bernina aurora 440.

The difference in embroidery sewing has changed such a lot in those years and I found myself floundering.

I had lessons from the shop where I bought the machine. The cost was $25.00 one lesson per month; we started projects but never finished them.

I turned to the Internet and found a lot of help. I downloaded lessons and began to get the hang of things. I came across your lessons and they made a lot of sense to me. I think of them as master classes, they give inspiration to work on new projects, I love the webinar where we can interact with others also the help you give when it is needed.

I am feeling more competent week by week, thank you Jacqui.

Wendy ""

You need not to waste any time any more trying to figure out how your Bernina embroidery software works, all your searches ends right here.

The service I provide in training the Bernina embroidery software will save you time and money so you can spend your valuable time on things to do.

I love to call myself your genie: your request is my demand.

Thank you for joining in this exiting, awesome and tremendous teaching game.

It is also presented as a webinar like our embroidery software classes.
