Tutorial: how to do ruler work with the BERNINA ruler foot no. 72.
The BERNINA ruler foot # 72 was specifically made for ruler work on BERNINA sewing machines.
In this video we show you step by step how to prepare your BERNINA machine and how to use the ruler foot with to create attractive lines and curves – with unparalleled precision.
The high-sided edge allows precise quilting around all edges of the template. The adjustment dials wheel allows the height of the presser foot to be customised to the thickness of the quilt. This means that the ruler foot can also be used with BERNINA sewing machines which do not offer the option for adjusting presser foot height. A patented invention exclusively from BERNINA!
Markings on the presser foot help to produce accurate seams. The notch at the front of the ruler foot allows you to keep an eye on your work at all times. The curved base of the foot glides smoothly over the fabric and allows the fabric to pass through evenly – for sewing and quilting results of the highest standard.
