The BERNINA Patchwork Foot #97D is designed for straight-stitching and is ideal for sewing ¼" or ⅛" seam allowances and top stitching. It is available for BERNINA machines that have a maximum stitch width of 9mm.
The foot print of the sole fits perfectly with the feeding system for the most accurate feeding and stitching when piecing patchwork blocks on a 9mm BERNINA machine. Patchwork Foot #97D is designed to work with BERNINA Machines equipped with the BERNINA Dual Feed feature.
Included with Patchwork Foot #97D, the move-able seam guide is separate from the foot and is attached to the sewing bed of the machine. Use to aid in sewing perfectly straight ¼" seams. Especially helpful for beginners, this guide also offers extra insurance to experienced piecers.
The Straight Stitch Plate is recommended to be used in conjunction with the Patchwork Foot.
