You need to use a darning presser foot--there are several designs of darning feet made by Bernina or generic brands (be sure the generic model has the appropriate attachment for your particular Bernina). You can find metal or plastic, clear or solid foot, open or closed toe, spring-loaded hopper or not, etc. Drop the feed dogs. If it is thinner fabric (lighter weight than denim), it sometimes helps to put the fabric in an embroidery hoop (upside down with the fabric next to the needle plate). If the hole is small, you can use the little hoop that should have been included in your Bernina accessory kit. Then you manually move the fabric back & forth, up & down under the presser foot while stitching.

How do I adjust the hook needle timing on my bernina 950?


I have a Bernina 950 sewing machine and I had a thread jam, and to remove the jam the hook came apart. Does it mean every time I have a thread jam I have to pay someone to fix the hook?
Why can I do this my self if someone will share pictures or knowledge?

Can a Bernina 801Sport be used for quilting?


Any sewing machine can be used for quilting.

For free-motion stitching, the presser foot has to be lowered or covered and you need to use a darning foot.

Refer to your manual for lowering or covering the feed dogs.

If you do not have a darning foot, you need to contact your local Bernina dealer to see if the have a foot for your model of sewing machine.

You can buy after market presser feet for Bernina, but you also need an adapter. Check sewingmachinesplus.com or Clotilde.com for these items.

Hi, possibly your feedogs are dropped and in the darning position and/or its thinking you want to embroider and there is NO hoop attached or entire embroidery unit plugged in. Check your feedog button below the handwheel on the bottom.
