I don't know anything about this particular machine but have an old Bernina. I would say don't be too quick to buy any feet until you see what you can do with what the machine comes with. I've have bought lots of them than ended up in a storage box.

U tube and bernina.com both have videos on what each of the feet does and how to use them. I think if you go and watch a couple you will know which ones you will use.

I love the number 57 for piecing. It is a 1/4" foot that has a guard on it to guide the fabric. I also love the stitch regulator for free motion quilting. The built in designs are wonderful and you will enjoy using them on fashions so make sure you have a good embroidery foot. I also bought the flat fell foot and the accessory foot (#71) for the Westalee quilting templets. I think the best way to buy is to get them as they are needed to do a project. That way you are getting what you will use.

Well, it is in the shop. Only had it less than two days and their repair guy may not be able to get to it until Tuesday. It really just seems mean. lol For the short time I had it though I know it is a far superior machine to anything I have ever had.
