For patchwork projects with seam allowances of 3 mm (1⁄8”), 6 mm (¼”) and 7.5 mm (1/3“)
Three notches on the side for precise guidance
For 9 mm machines
he BERNINA Patchwork Foot #97 is designed for straight-stitching and is ideal for sewing ¼" or ?" 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.
The Patchwork Foot #97 has an optional move-able seam guide. If the Patchwork Foot #97 comes as a standard accessory with a BERNINA machine, then the seam guide has to be bought separately. The seam guide aids 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.
