Bernina Gathering Foot 16V
Gathering Foot 16V is suitable for gathering light-weight to medium-weight fabrics. The fabric is gathered automatically whilst being sewn.The sole does not lie evenly flat on the feed dog, and therefore feeds the fabric unevenly, causing the fabric to gather. The slot in the sole of the foot enables a flat piece of material to be slipped into the indentation so that it isn't gathered, but is sewn directly onto the material being gathered in one operation. Fuller gathering is produced by increasing the stitch length. The basting-stitch function lets you create more pleats on thick fabrics. With all fabrics, higher thread tension produces narrower pleats. This foot fits all current and recent electronic models, including Artista, Auroroa, Virtuosa, Activa, 215, 3 and 5 series models.
