    Ok..its official...I spent way too much for this foot..but I dearly LOVE it and don't know how I lived without it! Of course, its my christmas present and I got it 40% off....so I had to go for it! :wink: Its actually made to make leather gloves, but it is fantastic to use for applique or anything where you need to sew a curve. You know how you have to lift your foot..set it down..2 stitches...and then do that again...well, this lets you just varoom around that curve...its sooo much fun!

    So do you have that thing that you love but you spent too much on it?

    I have been looking at it at my LQS but can not justify th e $XX.00 it was marked for. Don't worry, your secret (the price)is safe with me. I have it for my older Bernina but it doesn't fit the newer one, so I can not use it until I get the older one fixed.

    I bought one about 2 weeks ago, but I haven't tried it yet. I'm glad to hear that you love it.

    I LOVE a good gadget, and use them all the time, but I never thought of getting this one, 'cos I don't sew leather - thanks for the idea for using it on curves, why didn't I think of that?

    I had to go look at the number...its a Bernina foot..number 55. Its called a roller foot. Your Bernina dealer will have it. I don't know if they are made for other machines, but I'll bet they are. It could be called a leather foot or roller foot or even an applique foot. It really did make quick work of all the flowers on the table topper that I just finished.

    :-D

    Yes...you should...and sit very low too...but I did get mine on sale and with a coupon. I usually wait until my LQS has a class and she always has class coupons for anything in the store. Then I used that coupon through the mail from Bernina.

    I would think they fit the new Bernina as I was told that all the feet that fit the Artista/Aurora fit the new 820/830s.

    You want the feed dogs up so they help feed the fabric through.

    I'll try to do a video today...we'll see how that works.

    How much? Is that a rude question?

    I have never even seen a foot like this one. I love any gadget that is functional and makes my life easier.
