    For those who have a Bernina---which foot do you use for applique? For doing a blanket stitch or a satin stitch, which foot works best for you?

    Thanks for the information! :-)

    I don't have a Bernina, but my singer has a satin stitch foot...looks like the regular foot except on the bottom there is a groove about 1/4" wide that allows the heavier satin stitch to pass under without slowing or stopping the sewing.

    I use the open foot, my machine is the 165 and it tells me which foot is recommended, mine is a number 20 on the foot, I actually like this foot for most of my stitching cause I can see better, hope this helps.

    #20. It allows you to see clearly. Good luck!

    For satin stitching, a foot that has a wide groove in the bottom of the foot. This is the most important feature to look for when choosing a foot.
    It can be the zig zag foot that comes with your machine, an open toe foot, or another out of your collection. Try out a few and see which one works best for you

    I like an open toe foot for applique work, I can easily see where my stitches are forming :D:D:D

    I guess I've been using #6. Better check to see if I have #20 and what the difference is.

    I have not done a blanket stitch in ages so would probably use whatever foot the machine tells me to but for satin stitch I actually prefer the #1 foot. I line up the edge of my applique with the center line on the foot and that is easiest for me.

    I like to use the #20 open toe foot. It gives me a good view of the fabric edge so that the buttonhole stitch is positioned correctly. As I get older, I find myself taking off my glasses and getting real close. Aren't aging eyes fun? :?

    #20 or #34, depending what I'm doing. The #34 is clear but has the centre line marked which can be helpful.

    I like the open toe embroidery foot. I think it is #20...but I'm not near the machine now.
