The stitch plate, also known as a needle or throat plate, covers
the stitching area of a sewing machine, leaving the feed dog
exposed and an opening for the needle. BERININA stitch plates
are easily removable without the use of tools for ease in cleaning
the feed dog area.
Each machine comes equipped with a stitch plate designed for
the widest stitch available on that particular model – 5.5 or 9 mm.
Other stitch plates are optional accessories that accommodate
specific accessories and/or are used for certain techniques.
The stitch plates are color coded at the center upper edge for
easy, at-a-glance recognition.
