Machine Guide

In this three-part class, Betty will help you become familiar with the BERNINA presser feet that came with your machine and also show you how to use other frequently used feet BERNINA has to offer. If a technique that we are teaching involves a presser foot that did not come with your BERNINA model and your machine will accommodate the foot, we will gladly provide one for you to use in class. If you decide to purchase one of the optional feet during the class where it is presented, you may purchase it at that time at 20% discount.

We’ll also introduce to you BERNINA's Big Book of Feet where you can get information pertaining to all the feet along with more techniques for their use.
