Bernina Blindstitch Foot 016
The feet for the older Bernina models are no longer available - however we have a selection of 2nd hand feet. Bernina Blindstitch Foot 016 is designed for sewing blind-hems on all fabric thicknesses for a barely visible finish, and is also suitable for topstitching and sewing edges.This foot is the invisible-hemming expert for sewing blind-hems on all fabrics - the stitches catch only a few threads of the hem fabric, so they are virtually invisible on the front. The stitch is formed over a special blade that acts as a guide, creating a slightly loose stitch so the hem lies flat. When the fabric is pressed flat, the needle-penetration points on the front of the fabric "close up", making the seam virtually invisible. The guide blade also ensures an even distance to the folded edge, allowing the hem to be sewn neatly and consistently.This foot is ideal for hemming garments, curtains and other homeware projects.Suitable for practically all fabrics, the Blindstitch foot also makes quick work of narrow edgestitching medium-weight and thick fabrics, with the needle position to the left or right.Fits older Bernina models: 700, 707, 807, 801, 830, 900, 930 etc.
