Bernina Pintuck Foot 31 (5 Grooves)
The 5 Grooves Pintuck Foot 31 is used when working with medium weight fabrics. By using a 3mm 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 ensure an even distance between the rows of sewing. The generous cutout in the center of the foot allows a good view of the stitching area.This foot is also ideal for sewing mini-piping, elastic gathering, and the couching of braids and trim.For creating pintucks on: thicker fabrics, use foot 30 with a 4mm twin needle; light to medium-weight fabrics, use foot 32 with a 2mm twin needle; very light-weight fabrics, use foot 33 with a 1.6mm twin needle.This foot fits the old Bernina mechanical models from the 530 to the 1630, including the current 1008.
