I have been trying to download the New York Beauty.zip from Feb. 24, 2008. Can I still get that? I’d love to try it! I am just learning to do some quilting and I have the cut-around tool so I thought this would be great with both!

I am a regular reader of your blog and only today saw your very useful digitizing videos. Thanks a lot- it opened another door for me!

Please, I would like to buy your Cd on cross stitch Bernina software v5. I have the upgrade v7. Where do I buy your instruction on Cross stitch for the Bernina software. Joy

Joy, I am rarely on this site due to lack of time and have changed my email address so don’t get notifications. I also am not teaching Software Club anymore. However, rather than selling you the full CD, I just uploaded it to YouTube https://youtu.be/7yeKfIvtLss I hope it is still helpful to you or someone else.
