Feet-ology: An Introduction to BERNINA Presser Feet

Want to improve your sewing skills, finish your projects faster, and sew more creatively?

You can do ALL of these things by exploring
the use of specialty presser feet.

Expand Your Sewing Machine’s Capabilities

Build on what your sewing machine can do by using specialty presser feet. BERNINA has almost 100 presser feet and attachment options that let you stitch new techniques, improve your accuracy, give you more professional looking results and offer more creative options for your sewing projects.

Discover new ways to sew

The presser feet included with the purchase of your machine are usually for general sewing tasks such as seaming, hemming, making buttonholes, and topstitching. You can do a great deal of sewing with these feet and you may never need more. But, if you go beyond these, you can discover additional presser feet that let you explore new ways to sew, exciting techniques, and fun ways to be more creative with your sewing.

Introduction to BERNINA presser feet

Feet-ology is an informative course that is an introduction to the entire line of BERNINA presser feet. We’ll look the feet and discuss how they work and what they can do for your stitching and your sewing creativity. There will be selected demos throughout the lessons as well as fun techniques and practical tips that you can add to your sewing toolbox.

Susan Beck

Over a 20 year span I sewed on several machines – my grandmother’s vintage machine, my mother’s hand-me-down, a college gift from my parents, and finally one that I purchased myself.

Each of these machines had five to six presser feet but I barely used more than one. Most of my sewing, from t-shirts and tailored jackets to wedding gowns were stitched using an all purpose foot; however, I sometimes used a zipper foot for sewing close to the coils.

I was introduced to a whole new world of sewing when I became a sales rep at BERNINA of America. I became interested in the education part of the business and quickly realized the power of presser feet. I learned that knowing how to sew and knowing how to use my sewing machine are not the same thing.

 The first specialty presser foot I used was an edgestitch foot which is one of my all-time favorites! When I put the edgestitch foot on the machine and used the guide as I stitched, I had perfect topstitching; my sewing skills improved and all I did was use the proper presser foot! I’m grateful for the time spent in the education and training department at BERNINA because I greatly improved the quality of my sewing and presser feet knowledge. I am proud to say that I still partner with BERNINA on special projects: I am the editor of The BERNINA Big Book Series of book, and write for their blog, WeAllSew.com.
