Bernina Shell Hemmer Foot 168
The feet for the older Bernina models are no longer available - however we have a selection of 2nd hand feet.Bernina Shell Hemmer Foot 168 is suitable for producing a 2mm decorative shell-like effect, three-dimensional hem, when used with certain types of stitches such as zigzag, blindstitch or overcasting.The foot performs several steps in a single sewing operation - the foot is designed with a special scroll that turns the fabric edge under twice to prevent the fabric from fraying. A guide, or channel, in the sole of the presser foot guides the turned-under fabric towards the needle hole, preventing the material from slipping out of the scroll. The width of the channel corresponds to the width of the finished hem. The foot is suitable for hemming soft fabrics such as knits, tricot, undergarment and T-shirt fabrics etc.Fits older Bernina models: 700, 707, 807, 801, 830, 900, 930 etc.
