Bernina Pintuck Foot 33 (9 Grooves)
The 9 Grooves Pintuck Foot 33 is used when working with very light-weight fabrics, such as batiste. By using 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.For creating pintucks on: thicker fabrics, use foot 30 with a 4mm twin needle; medium-weight fabrics, use foot 31 with a 3mm twin needle; light to medium-weight fabrics, use foot 32 with a 2mm twin needle.This foot fits the old Bernina mechanical models from the 530 to the 1630, including the current 1008.
