With the Bernina Darning foot # 9, small holes and tears in fabrics practically repair themselves.
The hopper mechanism combined with the vertical spring presses the foot firmly to the project, preventing the material from pulling up withthe needle during sewing (flagging) and ensuring a neat stitch pattern.
The special shape of the Bernina Darning foot # 9 also makes it ideal for free-hand embroidery, quilting, and creating attractive lace and monograms. Because of the circular sole, Bernina Darning foot #9 is also great for echo quilting. No matter which direction you are sewing, the lines remain approximately 1/4″ apart.
When purchasing feet, please select which version of foot which fits your machine. The ‘standard’ version of foot fits older machines from the Bernina 910-1630. The ‘v version’ fits the newer Bernina machine models from the Activa 125 upwards.
