Presser Feet & Accessories

December 2019 Accessory Special: 25% off the Fabric-feeding Aid

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 and easy to change presser foot for every application, manufactured for precision and stability.

December Special

During the month of December, save 25%** off the purchase of the Fabric-feeding Aid for sewing buttonholes. Used in conjunction with the BERNINA Buttonhole foot #3A/3B, the Fabric-feeding Aid gives you optimal fabric feeding when sewing buttonholes of equal length — the two plates of this accessory provide an additional feed surface, pressing evenly on the material. This lets you produce neat buttonholes with an even stitch pattern – even on challenging fabrics: thick, fluffy elastic, etc.

** Offer valid December 1-31, 2019 at any participating US BERNINA Store. Offer good for 25% off BERNINA Fabric-feeding aid for sewing buttonholes. 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 exclusions may apply. Subject to availability. Available while supplies last. Offer limited to residents of the 50 United States only.
