BERNINA presser feet -- Darning foot #9. Published on Oct 15, 2010
The 12th section of the BERNINA presser-feet online tutorial is about the darning foot no. 9. The darning foot is suitable for a series of free-motion techniques such as darning smaller holes or tears. It is also ideal for embroidery, making lace, quilting and sewing monograms. When the needle raises a vertical spring presses the fabric down (hopper mechanism) thus preventing the fabric from lifting along with the needle or flagging. Use a hoop for darning and stitch once lengthways and once crossways over the mend. Use a fine darning thread in matching color to blend in with the fabric.
