Hey sewing friends!
Bernina offers several narrow hemmer presser feet.
If you are a Bernina owner, you know the feet are identified by numbers.
The narrow hemmer feet are numbers:
61, 62, 63, 64, 66, 68, and 69
Whew! That’s a lot of options. Which one to choose?
First, you should determine on what type of fabric you plan to use your hemmer foot
(i.e. lightweight, medium weight, etc.)
Second, what type of stitch do you want to use
(i.e. straight, zig zag, shell)
Third, what type of hem will you mostly sew
(i.e. curved, or straight)
Now, armed with that information, head to your local Bernina dealer
and enlist the help of the knowledgeable staff
– or –
consult your handy dandy Feetures
book if you happen to own that gem
I put together this short video to give you some tips on using this presser foot:
The shell and hemmer foot is one that we use in the Bernina Customer Course.
Your sewing will have a polished, professional finish if you use it.
It is not included with your new Bernina sewing machine,
but you might want to add it to your wish list *wink*

Sewing is my passion and I always have a notion to sew, but sometimes I get distracted with other crafty endeavors. I share my creative accomplishments (and sometimes failures) here on my blog. I am a licensed Martha Pullen beginning sewing instructor and serger instructor. For 5 years, I taught new owners how to use their Bernina sewing machines at my local Bernina dealer, and for 2 years I taught serger project classes at my local Baby Lock dealer. These days, my professional time is spent retailing handmade purse and bag making supplies and patterns. I also sell a small selection of fabric as well as my handmade bags and purses.
