BERNINA Presser Feet and Accessories

February 2019 BERNINA Accessory Special

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.

February Special

The February 2019 featured accessory, available at 25% off**, is the Red Bobbinwork Case — sewing upside down has never been more fun! The Red Bobbin Case is a special accessory bobbin case designed specifically for heavier weight cords and threads.

“Let me say I love that it’s red, making it so easy to identify. When I know I’m going to be playing with heavier thread I look for the Red,” writes quilt artist Teri Lucas on BERNINA’s We All Sew blog, in a post that also offers you tips on stitching free-motion bobbin work. “This bobbin case gives us the ultimate freedom – there is no tension screw/spring. All tension is controlled from the top. It comes with a threader for those particularly heavy decorative threads we like to play with. Think heavier embroidery floss, perle cotton, ribbon...”
