Free-Hand System (FHS)

Free-Hand System (FHS)

  • Raise and lower presser foot easily
  • Both hands free to guide the fabric
  • To be used with your knee
With the BERNINA Free Hand System (FHS) you can raise and lower the presser foot with your knee. This noticeably improves clearance under the presser foot, which in turn facilitates fabric handling. You will save time and achieve perfect results!

Exact speed control

Exact speed control

  • Stitch by stitch sewing
  • Sew up to 1,500 stitches per minute
  • Automatic needle stop up
The BERNINA Foot Control and DC motor allow a top speed of up to 1,500 stitches per minute but also stitch by stitch sewing. This makes it easy to work with delicate or heavy fabrics that require extra care in handling.
