Bernina Wide Gathering Foot


Bernina Wide Gathering Foot

Bernina Foot No. 16

Gathering is easy with the right foot! Use the Wide Gathering Foot #16 to gather single layers of fabric in all fabric types. The slot of the foot allows the gathering of one piece of fabric while it is being attached to another (ungathered) layer. A ruffle can be made and attached in one operation. The amount of gathering can be adjusted by varying stitch length and needle thread tension. For heavier fabrics, the use of the long stitch or basting stitch will facilitate gathering. The distance between rows of gathering ranges from a minimum of 3/16″ (5mm) to a maximum of 3/8″ (10mm). For applications where exact control of the gathering ratio is required, consider the use of the Bernina┬« Ruffler (# 86).

Fits all the older Berninas from 530 to 1530 including the lastest 1008

Fits the Artista, Aurora, Virtuosa & Activa.
