It's all about the feet: Bernina sewing machine feet...that is

and what a life saver some Bernina specialty sewing feet are: 

Friend Dorothy gave me a scrap piece of oil cloth, so I decided to put it to good use.  An oil cloth tote bag for this and that: 

What really came in handy was foot #52....Bernina calls it the Zigzag Foot with Sliding Sole.  I call it my foot for all things difficult - photographs, plastic, faux leather, etc.   If it's sticky, grippy or shiny, then this is the foot to use. 


  1. Thanks for the tip. I need to see if I have that foot for my machine.

  2. Very good! I have no Bernina, but try to do with my modest machine kiss coser.Un Liliana.


Thanks for stopping by...
