Bernina Pintuck Foot 164 (9 Grooves)
The feet for the older Bernina models are no longer available - however we have a selection of 2nd hand feet.Pintucks add texture and attractive detail to a garment or home textile project e.g. cushion covers. Bernina 9 Grooves Pintuck Foot is especially suited to sewing fine, elegant pintucks on very light-weight or delicate fabrics, such as batiste.Used in conjunction with a 1.6mm twin needle, the grooves on the underside of the foot enable you to sew even, neat parallel tucks that match the size of the grooves in the foot. When sewing several parallel pintucks, these grooves act as a guide ensuring an even distance between the rows of sewing. The typical pintuck shape is produced by the bobbin thread, which pulls together the two lines of stitching as you sew. The finished pintucks lend a lovely texture to the fabric, and can also be embellished with decorative stitches - letting you create attractive garments and home furnishings.This foot is also ideal for smocking, fagotting and entredeux work.Please note: the image shows the foot with a quilting guide hole and screw - the 2nd hand feet we have do not have this addition.Fits older Bernina models: 700, 707, 807, 801, 830, 900, 930 etc.
