Bernina 530 60 Alphabets & Memory

Bernina 530 60 Alphabets & Memory

Putting alphabets into the memory is actually
kind of fun. You can spell out anything that you want to do, a quilt label, a holiday,
a date. You’ve got technically four alphabets. Two of these are American or English lettering
so we’ll use those for today. Open up, or touch your home button, arrow down to the
combimode; that’s where we can combine stitches or also known as the memory. You have options
for your decorative stitches or your regular stitches, like your practical stitches. We’ll
see where the ‘A’ is, touch OK. We’ll use these two today so we’ll go ahead and to the
first one. As you can see, you get all capital letters if we arrow down further because there’s
an arrow showing us there’s more. You do get into European type letters, also numbers.
Right after the zero, the space. That’s the one where everybody asks, “Where’s the space?”
You have a dash and other punctuation that will be helpful if you want to stitch those
out. It’s kind of fun. If I want to do my name, I’m going to go ahead
and go to each of the letters, touch OK. It will start to spell it out at the top of the
screen, S-A-R-A. If I wanted to I can add a decorative stitch. I can go back, arrowing
backwards here. I can go over to the decorative stitches and if I wanted to do, I like to
sometimes add a heart. There’s also a couple different hearts on your machine. How about
413? I can type it in, 4-1-3, there’s a heart. Yes it is going to come in sideways, it will
stitch out properly. Another thing we can do is we can arrow up into the letters if
you forget a letter or you need to add something. If I wanted to add a heart at the beginning,
I could move the cursor all the way over to the side. Make sure the dotted line is in
front of your first letter, in front of the ‘S’ here. Then I’ll put in that 413 again,
4-1-3. Remember type your letters in fairly quickly so you don’t get 41 instead of 4-1-3.
There’s my name. If I go ahead and stitch this out, I’m going to zoom out so you can
see a little bit. Keeping in mind, the stitching will always come towards you. We do need to
return back to my sewing screen. Arrow over to the needle and thread picture, touch OK,
now it will show up. Since I have four letters and two decorative stitches it shows me I’m
on stitch one of six. As I stitch out, we’ll go ahead and do the heart. Again, I can push
pattern end so it will stop at the end of each pattern. I’ll wait until the very end.
I’ll watch the screen, S-A-R-A and when the heart comes up, I’ll push pattern end and
that way it will stop at the end of it. All right, let’s show you what that is going to
look like. How fun is that? Now, some people ask about doing capital and
lower case. Here’s how I like to do it. I’m going to go ahead and go back into home. We’re
going to go back to the combimode, touch OK. I’m going to go back to the sewing screen
and, if I wanted to, I’m going to take the ‘S’ and leave it as the biggest letter. Arrow
down to the ‘A’ and then we can adjust the width. Let’s go ahead and go down to 3-1/2
or 3.7, arrow down making each of the other letters not as tall but making them all the
same height. So 3.7, 3.8, 3.7 and then we’re to the heart and that is how we’re doing it.
Also too, when you push pattern end before you start sewing, it’s going to do the whole
pattern one time. If I push it again it will be two times, three times, four times, five,
six, seven, eight, nine, and back off. I’m going to go ahead and set it for once. When
I pushed it while I was sewing it finished the pattern and then stopped on that pattern.
This one, it will take the whole sequence, sew it all the way out. I must have had it
on the ‘R’ up on screen when I started. That’s a good reason to push pattern begin, because
otherwise you’re going to get this R-A and the heart and then it stopped. Which was nice
but we don’t want that. Push pattern begin, and now I’m back and I’m still going to do
it one time. Here is the heart, here is the ‘S’ so I can always see what’s on the screen.
A-R, not lower case but they will significantly look smaller. Then it will finish the heart
and then I can just keep my foot on the foot control until it stops so I don’t even have
to really be paying attention, which I like. So there’s the S-A-R-A with a little bit of
the shorter letters, so you can adjust the letters as you wish. Go back to home, arrow
down to the combimode, touch OK, go over to the trash can, we’re going to clear it all
out. Then if we wanted to do a bolder look to your letters, because if they are a little
bit on the small side, use the open block alphabet. If you come in here, you still have
everything you were looking for earlier. How about I’ll do S-A-R, back up to A. We won’t
do a decorative stitch with this we’ll just go ahead and stitch it out. There we go, return,
return, arrow over to the needle and thread, touch OK. You’ll see that these letters are
much bigger, bolder, because they are a little bit more defined with the extra stitching. Have you ever stitched out on paper, this
is kind of fun. I didn’t push pattern end so we’ll stop at the S. You can stitch on
paper, you can do greeting cards, you could really have some fun by using your decorative
stitches in your memory and even spelling out. You could do Happy Valentine’s Day, you
could do two thousand whatever year it is, and have some fun. Memory, try it out. Give
yourself a couple practice runs and I think you’ll really get used to how to move around
within the memory.
