Bernina Spanish Hemstitch Attachment 47V

The Spanish Hemstitch attachment is a special accessory for decorative projects - by using it with the open embroidery presser foot, it joins together neatened edges of two pieces of fabric with an heirloom touch, or can be used for sewing on edgings and fringing.

The Spanish Hemstitch attachment consists of a fastening plate with 4 cord guides, a fastening screw and a screwdriver. The cord guides consist of two narrow 5.5mm guides (one for fine and the other for firm, heavy fabrics) and two wide 9mm guides (again one for fine and the other for firm, heavy fabrics).

This accessory is used to join individual pieces of fabric together, e.g. when extending tablecloths or runners, sewing edgings to skirts and other garments, stitching fringing to projects, etc. You can also use a cord (maximum thickness 2mm) for creating edge finishes or for joining two pieces of fabric together.

By using the open embroidery foot 20V (for 5.5mm guides) or 20C (for 9mm guides), and selecting a suitable stitch, you can create original stitching patterns. The simpler, forward-only stitches are better suited for this type of technique rather than complex stitch patterns with a lot of forward or reverse stitching.

This foot fits all current and recent electronic models, including Artista, Auroroa, Virtuosa, Activa, 215, 3 and 5 series models.
