BERNINA Stitch Regulator (BSR)

The BERNINA Stitch Regulator (BSR) adapts precisely to your current sewing speed to produce absolutely consistent stitching.

 

Reverse pattern foot # 1C

Reverse pattern foot # 1C is the ideal presser foot for sewing forward and reverse-feed utility and decorative stitches.

 

Reverse pattern foot # 1D

Reverse pattern foot # 1D is the ideal presser foot for sewing forward and reverse-feed utility and decorative stitches.

 

Overlock foot # 2A

Overlock foot # 2A lets you neaten seams easily and sew high-quality hems, waistbands and overlock seams on knit fabrics.

 

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.

 

Buttonhole foot # 3C

Buttonhole foot # 3C is the natural choice for easy sewing of buttonholes with and without cording, and is also ideal for gathering with cord.

 

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.

 

Button-sew-on foot # 18

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.

 

Sideways motion foot # 40C

Sideways motion foot # 40C enables multi-directional sewing, and allows you to sew out large sideways motion stitch patterns.

 

Small embroidery hoop

Medium hoop – for medium-sized designs

The Medium hoop is a useful tool for the accurate embroidering of medium-sized projects with the BERNINA embroidery machine.

 

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.
