BERNINA Presser Feet and Accessories

BERNINA offers you a wide selection of accessories — wide range of presser feet and specialty BERNINA accessories for sewing, quilting, embroidering and serging — that give free rein to your creativity. BERNINA has a suitable presser foot for every application, manufactured for precision and stability and easy to change.

April 2018 Accessory Special — 25% Off Patchwork Feet!

Throughout the month of April†, save 25% on BERNINA Patchwork Feet! BERNINA has developed special patchwork feet to allow you to sew patchwork pieces together easily with a special seam allowance.

  • April 2018 Accessory Special — 25% Off Patchwork Feet! Patchwork foot #37 is designed for straight-stitching, ideal for sewing 1/4” or 1/8" (approximately 3 or 6mm) seam allowances. It features three evenly spaced markings (1/4" apart) on its side that make  the square insertion of pieces in patchworking easier. A narrow groove under the flat sole serves as a thread channel for smoother piecing. Ideal for 5mm BERNINAs.
  • Patchwork foot #57 with guide differs from Patchwork foot #37 in that it has a built-in seam guide along the right edge of the foot, making it particularly suitable for patchwork projects with 1/4&" (6mm) or 1/8" (3mm) seam allowances. Other precision sewing techniques requiring a perfectly straight seam also benefit from the use of this presser foot, e.g., place the edge guide directly against the fabric edge or seam line to yield straight spacings and lines when sewing.
  • The Patchwork foot #97 is designed for straight-stitching and is ideal for sewing 1/4" or 1/8" seam allowances and top stitching. It is available for BERNINA machines that have a maximum stitch width of 9mm. The foot print of the sole fits perfectly with the feeding system for the most accurate feeding and stitching when piecing patchwork blocks. The Patchwork Foot #97 has an optional move-able seam guide.

†Offer valid April 1-30, 2018 at any participating US BERNINA Store. Offer good for 25% off one (1) BERNINA Patchwork Feet #37, 57, 97. Cannot be replaced with any other offer. Not valid on previous purchases. Taxes are not included in the total purchase calculation. Cannot be redeemed for cash. Some exclusion may apply. Subject to availability. Available while supplies last.
