Bernina have released a new version of firmware for your 830. This update seems to have ironed out a few wrinkles and white hairs that some people have come across. This update is available on the USA web site but we do recommend that we update for you as part of a Check & Adjust service as tensions and balance sometimes seem to need adjusting. If you purchased your 830 from Quilt Direct then this update is done free of charge.

In addition to technical updates in version V34.21.51, Bernina have given us some lovely new designs, some that have appeared on the 7series and new 880. Just to make sure we do not feel ‘left out’! There are also a few tempting designs for DesignWorks. (You would need the relevant DesignWorks tool in order to ‘sew ‘them out. (link to Design works page?)
