This foot is indispensable when additional control is needed to feed the fabric or layers being sewn. In a tradition of continuous technical improvements, BERNINA recently enhanced this Walking Foot. It now includes three interchangeable soles: the closed sole designed for sewing with difficult or slippery fabrics, the open sole designed for quilting, and the sole with center guide to help stitch perfectly straight along a seam or edge. Use the closed sole for sewing on leather, velvet, slippery or sticky fabrics, for matching plaids, etc. There are both 1/4" and 1/8" markings on the sole to serve as seam and cornering guides. Use the open sole when machine quilting. The quilting sole has an "open toe" configuration to improve visibility when quilting. It also provides 1/4" and 1/8" markings to serve as seam and cornering guides. The back of the quilting sole is designed to reduce drag on the quilt, further promoting perfect feed. Use the center guide sole to help stitch perfectly straight along a seam or edge; it is great for in-the-ditch stitching for both sewing and quilting applications. Red model, for older BERNINA machines.
