Sorry to cause so much confusion when I posted yesterday (New On
Board) and mentioned the instructional material that came along with
my 430. I wrongly referred to it as a DVD, but of course it is a CD-
ROM that I play on my computer. I find it very helpful. I thought
I'd start a new thread to explain what I was talking about since
there was some interest, and it seems many of us don't have easy
access to our dealer for one reason or another.
The CD-ROM is entitled "Instructional Presentation CD-ROM" for the
Bernina Aurora 430/440QE. The various sections are:
OVERVIEW: interactive picture explaining each of the parts of the
SEWING: Includes: Set Up - video with great close ups of how to set
up the machine (threading, winding the bobbin etc. even a great close
up of using that needle threader). Garment Sewing, Home Dec.,Craft
Sewing, and Quilting. The quilting section has an introductory movie,
manuals, & a step by step project. I haven't had a chance to watch
the others, yet.
EMBROIDERY: haven't looked at this, yet
ACCESSORIES: videos on using various feet and accessories
INFORMATION: Includes: Video Gallery, Maintenance Video,
Instructional Manual (PDF), Project Instructions and Web links.
I haven't taken the classes (for reasons I won't go into here), but I
imagine that much of this is covered in class. However, I think this
is a valuable resource to have at home to use as a refresher. There
is so much to learn that I'm sure one can't absorb it all in a few
classes. The videos are very professional and have great close ups,
so you can really see what's going on.
I hope this is helpful. Again, I apologize for any confusion

No need to apologize to me. I wasn't confused. What I have come to
believe is that not all Bernina dealers where given this CD-ROM to
give to their customers. The dealer I go to is GREAT.
I was just curious on what is on the CD seeing that friends of mine
on other states were given it when they bought their machines.
Thanks for posting what is actually on the CD.
Have a great day. Back outside to start mowing now that I planted 6
rows of sweet corn. The weather has warmed up a little after a hard
frost this morning.
