Reverse pattern foot # 1D

Buttonhole foot with slide # 3A

Depending on the model, Buttonhole foot with slide # 3A determines the desired buttonhole length for identical buttonholes either via a sensor or manually.

 

Zipper foot # 4D

Thanks to its narrow, centrally positioned toe, Zipper foot # 4D can stitch very close to the zipper coils, allowing it to sew the zipper on neatly.

 

Blindstitch foot # 5

Blindstitch foot # 5 is suitable for sewing blind hems on all fabrics. When this foot is used, you can hardly see the stitching from the front.

 

Jeans foot # 8D

Jeans foot # 8D produces neat straight-stitched seams on tough, heavy fabrics such as denim, leather or canvas.

 

Open embroidery foot # 20C

Open embroidery foot # 20 / 20C / 20D is ideal for embroidering with your sewing machine. The indentation in the sole of the presser foot allows it to glide smoothly over dense stitches.

 

Drop-shaped embroidery foot # 26

Thanks to its special tear-drop shape, Drop-shaped embroidery foot # 26 allows you to embroider with the embroidery module and to darn delicate fabrics.

Large oval hoop

The Large oval hoop is suitable for both design combinations and extensive embroidery designs. The template makes quick work of accurately positioning the project in the hoop.

 

Free-arm slide-on table for more sewing space

The BERNINA Free-arm slide-on table offers greater comfort thanks to an increased sewing area, without affecting free-arm function when sewing.

 

Free-Hand System (FHS) / Presser foot lifter

The Free-Hand System (FHS) / Presser foot lifter lets you raise the presser foot and lower the feed dog with your knee. Recommended particularly when working with delicate fabrics.
