Combine Multiple Designs and Optimize Color Changes in BERNINA V8 Software

I am stitching finger puppets for the 2-year-old twin’s Easter baskets. They, both the twins and the puppets, are adorable! In order to speed up the stitching process, I am combining 4 puppets in each hooping. BERNINA V8 software makes this so easy.

After combining the designs I show you how to use optimize the color changes. This changes the number of times you rethread the machine from 47 to 15. Yes Please!

I hope you learn something useful in your V8 software. Have a great day!
