The secret skills of BERNINA presser feet and a final raffle

Dear BERNINA Blog Readers,

I wish you a wonderful Christmas. Enjoy the time with your loved ones – not only today, but as often as possible – and have a great start into 2022!

We hope that you will continue visiting the BERNINA blog in the new year. As a thank You for your loyalty, we are holding a raffle today with great prizes. You will find the information further down in the article. Good luck!

The secret skills of BERNINA presser feet

First a quick excursion. Do you remember last year’s BERNINA Christmas video? After an intense year of work, our sewing feet took a break at the end of 2020, slipped out of the sewing room and went on winter vacation. We could well understand that, because 2020 was exhausting for everyone.

The conclusion of our feet: A short rest is simply good for you! That’s why they are treating themselves to a break this year, too. They left the studio on quiet soles and entered a Christmas bakery near Steckborn. Always with them: their faithful companion, the pincushion.

What mischief are the little guys up to between the cake tray and the rolling pin?

Coincidentally, a camera was there and recorded everything. Take a look at it:

The secret skills of our presser feet surprise us again and again!

And how was your year – do you also need a short break? I am happy to see you here and taking a few minutes to read this article. Maybe the BERNINA blog is for you what the Christmas bakery is for our presser feet: a special place where you can forget everyday worries for a moment, get to know new things with friends and family, recharge your creative batteries, and have some fun. I would be happy if you feel the same way.

Spread joy!

    The variety of content on the Bernina Blog keeps me returning. From learning new sewing techniques, quilting, embroidery and the free patterns I always find something of interest to me.Thank you.

  • Jan Du Bois

    The Bernina Blog is fantastic! I love that there is such a fabulous variety of projects to inspire and educate us.  It shows us that there are so many wonderful things we can create, and helps us to see the endless possibilities of what we can achieve with our beautiful machines and accessories. The Christmas videos starring the magnificent feet that all Bernina owners love so much are truly remarkable! 

  • Sonto Banganayi

    BERNINA is my ultimate aspirational sewing machine brand. The BERNINA Blog keeps me focused on my goal to one day have a Bernina sewing machine. Keep up the good work!

  • Anne Chandler Brown

    Hi, I bought my Bernina 790 plus limited edition Peacock  this year, I have been enjoying learning new skills, with the embroidery module. Loving my Bernina it’s the best sewing machine I’ve owned and though my lifetime I’ve owned a few. Being new to the Bernina I find the blogs and information on Bernina site very useful and I am looking forward to using my new ma nine to its full potential.  

  • angusww

     Hi Bernina, as a relatively new sewist I enjoy the content here and often find inspiration and useful advice. I have a relatively simple machine (a B335) but appreciate that most of the ideas can be transferred to my machine with the obvious exception of embroidery.I find difficult is pulling together the different brands of Bernina content across the internet. Couldn’t this blog be a central resource that links to content in other social media – I accept we don’t want mindless repetition across all Bernina sites. But some content deserves wider exposure. For example, Bernina USA has some excellent content on their instagram feed and Sylvain Bergeron’s recent post on hemmer feet explained so much and broadened my understanding.

  • CHARLINE BERT

    The BERNINA Blog is a wealth of helpful information and inspiration. As the grateful owner of a Bernina 930 Record, the blog has more tips, tricks and ideas for sewing on my much loved Bernina… assisting me in creating handmade items for those I love by learning proper and helpful techniques for the individual presser feet. I thoroughly enjoy the BERNINA Blog!

  • Lyse Morisset

    Always a welcome reminder of the capabilities of my Bernina tools and the joy they can bring to everyday and special projects. 

  • Maureen Ward

    I find the blog inspiring and always has something new for me to want to try. Thank you for the inspiration and easy to follow instructions.

  • Jay Messitt

    I’ve decided to do far more online with Bernina this year. Friends in my quilt group which is a total of 130 people often don’t know what Bernina provides like the wonderful mastery lessons etc. I want to try and get some of us together to encourage each other and make friends at the same time. Any other ideas would be appreciated.CV

  • Mary Trounson

    I love the creativity of the blog contributors and  feel inspired to try new things with the 570QE  I purchased last year. And recently I purchased the embroidery module so looking forward to getting more ideas.Love the Presser foot Christmas videos. Very Clever presser feet. I wonder what mine are up to when I’m not looking!

  • Maxine Sutton

  • Liz Mitchell

    I am a quilter.  I have just found this.  I am looking forward to getting many new ideas

  • Susan Carine

    I live on The Isle of Man and since the Covid Pandemic I have felt quite isolated from the rest of the world in that travel restrictions have made it difficult to visit the places I would usually visit which include annual sewing shows and international shops.  I have however discovered the Bernina Blog which has kept me up to date and in touch with the whole world of Bernina and all the wonderful bloggers and seeing their masterpieces they seem to just come up with all the time, it has given me a lot of inspiration and encouragement.  I have owned my Bernina 790 plus now for nearly 2 years and I love it – my sewing seems to have gone from strength to strength – Thank you Bernina.   

  • grannyjan

    The first thing I look for when I sit at my computer is anything from the Bernina blog!  Sometimes I am envious of those who have more than 1 machine but I really love my 570QE and I only have room for one anyway!  I am currently making the Old Block Sampler challenge quilt and have just finished the Mariner’s Compass.  All the quilts I make are pieced and quilted on my Bernina.  I would like to do more with the embroidery module but am not very confident.  Perhaps more tutorials?  Thank you for all the inspiring articles.

  • Dianne Rooney

    I love this Bernina blog as we don’t have one in Australia and this makes me feel connected me with other sewists and this has been especially so in the last 2 years. Thank youI would love to see the feet do an Christmas painting on the embroidery module -perhaps wearing artists berets

  • Rosemary Draper

    I love all the projects in the blog and how they act as support for learning new things  on my Bernina at the same time! It’s great that there are so many different instructors to fit with our differing sewing styles. Thanks for all that.

  • Teri Wilkie

    I would love to see an end of year video showing a project that uses scraps from all the “makes” of the previous year!

  • Maria Cooper

    What I love about the Bernina blog is that it reminds me of projects that I have read about.  Your read one, read the next one and the first one is ‘lost’, so by reading the blog and going back to previous entries, you are reminded of all the great inspiring project that ‘one day we will make’

  • Nyssa Lanzafame

    i love coming to the blog for inspiration. although i have seen a lot of the content before, every once in a while i find that treasure, a glint of inspiration. also i always really enjoy the little presser feet holiday animation!  my favorite was the ice skating! thanks for providing a lovely space to stop in and be reminded of the joy of sewing, especially on days when there is not time for my hobbies.

    I love the blog and all the great ideas you post. You have a very talented crew. The video was too, too cute! I would love to see these adorable little feet decorate a tree with ornaments that could light up at the end and spell Bernina or something along those lines. Let them argue over which things are appropriate to hang on the tree for a little drama. This year’s was sooo cute.

  • Elizabeth Johnston

    I’ve been looking forward all year to see what antics these amazing Bernina feet have been up to. Who knew they could be so good at baking as well as skiing and skating? After seeing what the youngsters can do, my vintage 530-1 Record’s feet are going to come out of hibernation and try to learn some new tricks too!

  • Linda Dittrich

    WooHoo!  Loved the fun Christmas foot video!  I have, and still do, learn from the Blog every time I read it!  I always look for it in my email.  Thank you to Bernina and all the wonderful artists/ambassadors who so willingly teach us new and beautiful things to make on our Bernina!  Happy Holidays!

  • Joyce Hermans

    I love the Bernina Blog. So many new ideas on what can be made and which feet and/or techniques are demonstrated to construct it.

  • Sharon Gullacher

    Bernina!! The very best machine ever. Blog is great. Story for you:  my aunt, aged 93, has had a Bernina for 67 years. When contemplating the purchase of my 770 QE I asked her if she thot it was a good name in sewing machines. Her response? “IS THERE ANY OTHER KIND??” Of course we both knew the answer but this is a family that loves Bernina! She also said she has NEVER had her Bernina serviced ( horrors – in over 65 years!!) but this longevity is part of the Bernina family love affair. Keep up the great work all!

  • JO H

    Thank you BERNINA! Love your blog. There is always more on there than I would have thought possible.Thank you for all the inspiration you give us throughout the year

  • Philomena Kirkman

    I simply love in the hoop projects.  instructions provided are clear and too the point.  I  would like more free standing lace projects and if possible digitising the same.

  • MaryEllen Kalb

    I enjoy learning about new sewing/quilting and embroidery.  The pictures and explanations are a great help when learning new things.  The most help I need is with using my 790+ embroidery machine; so anything that you can embellish on would be helpful.

  • Stephanie Hardy

    The Bernina Blog gives me tons of ideas on (new to me) skills  to learn. Things that I didn’t even realize my machine can do! I love to see projects related to these skills and techniques so that I can practice and then work them into my own projects.

  • Kathleen Gregory

    Continual inspiration and new ideas enhance my use of my Bernina machine…  Keep it up!

    I am new to Bernina, purchasing my 790 Crystal edition three week ago. It has been a huge learning curve but this blog and videos have helped so much. Loved the cute pressure feet videos- so cute.

  • Sandy Seila

    I like the information the projects and all that Bernina is about. I used to be a Bernina educator for over 15 years between two dealerships.  The amazing products that Bernina keep producing keep my older brain fresh, with updated techniques and these computerized beasts that keep me challenged!!  

  • Stephanie Hoff

Bernina is so reliable and responsive to any needs or questions I have. That makes me a loyal customer. Thank you for everything.

  • Carmen Pape

    I love Bernina as a company and a fellowship.  Throughout this time of forced isolation I have come to depend on the Bernina Blogs to lighten my day, inspire my creativity and provide me with a sense of community.  As others share their projects I feel surrounded by hope and take pride in the success they achieve.  The Bernina brand is truly one of community and inclusion.  Thank you to all who have participated.

  • inde dutton

    I recently passed down my 25 year old Bernina to my daughter who is learning to sew.  I love sharing this blog with her, opening up the world of Bernina to her.  We will be making the free standing lace earrings on my 790+ further inspiring her to learn and grow beyond the basics.  I’m thankful for my LQS that sold me my first Bernina 25+ years ago. 

  • Ann Henry-Smith

    I’ve only recently joined, but I love the fun attitude. I will be her permanently now. I live on my own and this is just wonderful to be able to connect to so many people.for next years video, perhaps you could have different sized needles sewing their own weight of fabric. they can be running around looking for their cloth/fabric, obviously excited as they are dressing to go to a party. You know how ladies are, trying this one and no I must have different dress etc.

  • Suzanne Roy

    J’aime beaucoup lire tous les trucs et astuces livrés sur le blog Bernina. Cependant c’est souvent fastidieux pour moi puisqu’ils sont publiés uniquement en anglais. J’adorerais pouvoir recevoir cette mine d’information en français.Joyeux Noël à tous!

  • thackjean

    As a 13 year old i used my old  no name machine until it ran like a train.  In college I was introduced to Bernina.  After my 5th child my husband bought me a  used Bernina 830.  I was so happy I was afraid we would wreck on the way home and something would happen to it.  Now I have been married 42 years and was able to purchase the Bernina 770QE.  I am in love with it.     

  • Karen Maz

I have a 430 and the 880. One day I hope to upgrade the 880.

    I love the Bernina blog because it keeps me informed about all that Bernina is doing. I love all the ideas you bring that can be easily finished as well as the sew alongs that take longer. It is fun to get to know some of the designer as well. Thank you

  • Kim Perez

    I look forward to the Bernina blog in my inbox.  It is always fun, educational and inspirational!  I’ve ventured into new projects and learned so much from it.  I have two Bernina sewing machines…a 790 and 350 and a Q20.  I have been sewing since I was 6 years old (and that was a VERY long time ago) and have used many different brands of machines…none of them compare to Bernina!  

  • Lynn Rhoades

    I really like the blog posts with special projects, like small gifts to give for Christmas.   How about the presser feet go to a rodeo?

  • Kim Watson

    I really appreciate videos on how to experiment with some of the less commonly used feet….it helps me take risks I otherwise wouldn’t, and encourages me to be a bit more adventurous! Learning how the experts use their machine is helpful too. Thank you.

  • Sue Hilton

    I like that the blog tells me about new things available by Bernina, and/or how to use what I already have.  I am a Bernina girl!!!! 

  • Jeanette Colligan

    I love my Berninas!  And I love that there are new tips and tricks and ideas to try!  Always an answer to a lot of questions. The Bernina feet videos are so fun to watch!

  • Dee Duckworth

    Inspiring me to get off the computer and spend time doing my favorite thing… sewing on my Bernina!

  • Jill Siddons

    I like the way the blog gives me ideas to challenge me – small and big!  It leads me in directions I had never before followed and adds to my skill set.  Thank you.

  • Sandy Parker

    I like the information that the blog provides and the people who participate. Merry Christmas!

  • Ann Phelan

    I learn so much from the Bernina blog, from  new and better ways to use the feet,  and how to use the stitch functions. There is so many ideas presented and inspiration. Thank you!!

  • Brigitte Bilodeau

    I got my first Bernina a year ago and the blog has helped me learn about the many ways to use my machine. Also it has inspired me to join my first quilt along: the Bernina Old Block Quilt-Along!  Happy 2022!      Merci. 

  • Rose Redmon

    I always learn something new.  Patterns, and parts for my Bernina to make my sewing experience awsome.

    I’ve loved the wonderful festive creativity of the Bernina advent calendar. A rare joy and giving much needed fun during Covid times. Bless you!

  • Una Knight

    I’m new to the Bernina world this year.i love the sense of community and the suggestions and advice of more experienced Bernina users. And the quiltalongs. Happy holidays

  • Ila Kool

    Thanks to all your content contributors for sharing through the year.  Happy Christmas and a healthy and prosperous new year!

  • Marie Lang

    I am a big Bernina fan.  I love my Bernina Q570 and when I was fortunate to be gifted the embroidery module for my machine, I started looking at the Bernina blog.  I’ve learned many tricks and found out about many things that I didn’t know about as I hadn’t found it out on my own.  I value the blog because of it’s informative and instructional content.  Thank you for Bernina – for it’s fantastic quality and versatility. And thanks for the blog as it is the teaching tool that I’ve learned by.

  • Ellen Lageveen

    I have only joined the Bernina world this year and I love it!  The blog is inspiring and I learn many things!  Happy Holidays to everyone.

  • Marion Werner

    Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy 2022 to the Bernina Team and Bloggers.I love to read all the articles, I get inspired and learn a lot about the different funktions of the different presser feet. A lot of these hints and tips have influenced my work. I hope to read a lot more. All the Best to you. 

  • Martha Knoll

    I am new to the blog. But oh my, how nice to le a rn bits and pieces I never even thought about, but am happy to have learned

  • Lisa Burrows

    I enjoy the variety of the blog, my favourite this year has been the old block quilt along, very challenging at times. 

  • Carolyn Cothran

    Love my 790+ Bernina.  Loved the cute presser foot video. Thanks for the informative blogs. Look forward to more informative videos and blogs in 2022.

  • Christine Rideout

    I love all the tips and info. And the Bernina Christmas videos are adorable!

  • Valerie Morgan

    Been sewing for sometime but love finding new things and ideas.

  • Kathy-Jane Elton

    I am new to the blog.  I have used Bernina for over 45 years and just bought the new 770QE.  I’ still learning how to use it. I love the tips and the other info.

  • Gillian Berry

    Wishing everyone happy holidays and a happy new year. I too am new to Bernina, but getting my 770 QE has been the best sewing decision.  Two of my favourite feet are the jean and walking feet. I have caught up on many projects in 2021 with the amazing help of my new Bernina.  My sister-in-law was visiting. She was a very experienced sewer before she had a stroke, which also affected her speech.  She took one look at my Bernina and said “the best, the best”. That just says it all about Bernina. Love my Bernina and would love have these feet in my ‘tool box’s. Best to everyone. 

  • Sandy Foster

    I love the tips and tricks on the blog,  making using the various accessories so much better and more fun. The highlight for the past couple of years, though, is the Christmas adventures of the feet — love those!

  • Jennifer McGivern

    This year hasn’t been particularly good health wise and I feel I have missed a lot of your blogs, but hopefully I will not miss any in 2022, andI can get back to seeing.

  • Shelley Andrews

    Just love my Bernina! This kit would be a great addition to my sewing kit!

  • Glenda Wheeler

    Bernina is the only machine.  It sews everything.  I make hand bags and it never let’s me down.  I use foot 10d for stitching around the top of my  bags…makes  my sewing look so professional…people are amazed at how straight my sewing is! 

  • Linda Mador

    I am a relatively new Bernina owner, and I know that my machine will do so much more than what I use if for. Now that I’m settled into my new sewing room, I’m hoping to expand my knowledge and skills related to my Bernina – including the functions and use of the many feet that are available for the Bernina and the embroidery unit (which I have never used). In 2022, I am looking forward to learning more from the Blog, only recently discovered, along with the various available YouTube videos. Thanks for the wonderfully informative and fun blog. It’s always a good read!

  • Susan Rawlings

    Fantastic prizes I love my Bernina and would not swap it for any other type of machine. Bernina for ever

  • Margaret Clarke

    Loved opening the Advent Calendar every day this month.  Lots of inspirational ideas, thank you.  Also enjoyed the new presser feet video.  Great fun.  Happy Christmas to everyone.

  • Liz Hancock

    As a beginner quilter I love to see other people’s work , I am loving my 770qee Tula pink as well as my three other Berninas and am slowly learning how to use them to quilt and embroider. I would like to see info on fabrics , and which feet have been used.  

  • Karine Prost

    Thank you for organising this competition. I wish there were more posts about quilting.

  • Halima Mahomed

    I love the Bernina blog. The sewing tips and free patterns are what I look forward to most. Definitely the best sewing blog ever!

  • Judith Mellor

    I love the Bernina blog – it’s such an inspiration.  Having spent the past 2 months refurbing my sewing area/room I am really looking forward to trying lots of the projects after Christmas, and especially the quilt blocks and ‘recycling’ projects.

  • Birte Jensen

    Í am missing the old presser feet for zippers to my new machines.  The old machine was Bernina  1230

  • NICOLA Jackson

    I’ve owned a couple of Bernini’s, over 15 years in total but only discovered the blog this year. I’ve started the old block quilt along and am enjoying doing it. Perhaps some articles on the different feet would be good, highlighting one foot and giving a project using it.

  • Fiona Day

    It’s been great to see all the different things to do. I love my Bernina and look forward to doing lots of amazing projects in 2022. 

  • Veronica Morrison

The pictures are very well composed and I love the crystals. Next year, 2022 will hopefully be a much more fun one than 2021. I’d love to see something in this space for Easter! Merry Christmas and a happy New Year to you all.

  • Heather Wadsworth

    I love the Bernina blog. It’s really inspiring with so many ideas and I learn something every time I open it! Happy Christmas 

  • Jenny Dunn

    The blog inspires me to be more creative! I’ve been using a “no waste” policy and am eager to repurpose fabric from already owned garments.  I really liked the article on turning a man’s shirt into a drawstring bag!

    • Michelle Wilson

      You can always rely on Bernina for inspiration, resources, and support. The blog and the machine both enjoy the same fantastic reputation.

  • Patricia North

    The Bernina Blog is a great place to find hints, tips, inspiration and a relaxed atmosphere to inhale all things Bernina.  Feet up relaxing with a cup of tea to read it or snatching sentences here and there when I can, it’s a place to go to recharge my mind.  

  • Elena Kuzmina

    I would like to see new videos about Bernina feet hard work, things that they can do, and their adventures!

    I’m new to this blog but am so inspired to give my Bernina some care and attention and do a little sewing before the end of 2021.  A family Christmas has been cancelled so I have days ahead with no plans, except now I am excited to think about what I can make.  I will be looking back for ideas and looking ahead to 2022 with excitement for sewing, thank you and a very Happy Christmas to all x
