You can do ALL of these things by exploring
the use of specialty presser feet.
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.
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.
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.
You’ll have lifetime access to these lessons so you can learn at your own pace and watch them as many times as you want. Find a time that is convenient for you, pour yourself a cup of coffee (or tea) and watch as little or as much as you want. Before you know it, you'll have a whole new knowledge base about presser feet!
Eleven video lessons covering the full scope of BERNINA presser feet. We’ll take a look at the BERNINA history related to presser feet and I’ll answer the question of why BERNINA has so many presser feet. I’ll also help you decide if you really need any or all of them.
In addition, you’ll get a FREE Bonus Class about BERNINA attachments. There are 7 attachments, designed for techniques such as sewing circles, making embroidered eyelets, binding quilts, and other fun stitching tasks.
After going through the 11 lessons and the Bonus Class, you’ll want to make the Feet-ology Technique Sampler featuring some of my favorite techniques, presser feet and attachments. A PDF set of instructions and video demos walk you through the process of creating this Quilt-As-You-Go wall hanging.
Get access to our Private Facebook Group (included in the price of the class). Interact with other sewers on their presser foot journeys. Ask questions and share your sewing experiences. Stay tuned for Q & A sessions and technique demonstrations, so you’ll learn even more about BERNINA presser feet.
MEET YOUR INSTRUCTOR
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.
