Gathering with the Gathering Foot
Fabric .. 2 pieces medium weight cotton, one 4” x 6”, one 4” x 12”
Needle ................................................................... 80/12 Universal
Thread .......................................................................... all-purpose
Presser Foot ................. BERNINA® Wide Gathering Foot #16 or

Stitch ................................................................................ straight
Needle Position ........................................................... as indicated
BERNINA®
Attach the gathering foot to the
machine.
Select the straight stitch; adjust
stitch length to 5mm; set needle
position to the far left.
Notes
bernette®
Remove presser foot holder and
attach gathering foot to machine.
Select the straight stitch; adjust
length to 5mm; set needle position to center. Tighten upper
thread tension to 7.
Trim all four edges of the sample fabrics before beginning.
Place 12” length of fabric right side up under foot. Align edge of fabric
with 5/8” mark on the stitch plate. Stitch for 2” to 3”; stop.
Insert the 6” length of fabric right side down into the slot of the foot,
with the raw edge against the right side of the slot.
Continue stitching, carefully guiding both pieces of fabric. Guide fabric
that is being gathered with the left hand, flat fabric with the right hand.
Note that fabric being gathered moves under the foot much faster
than the flat, top layer.
Trim and mount sample.
Notes: There are three things that effect the amount of gathers:
1. Fabric Weight - The lighter weight the fabric, the easier to gather.
2. Tension - Increased upper tension increases the amount of
gathering.
3. Stitch Length - The longer the stitch length, the tighter the gathers.
Use the basting stitch or the Long Stitch function to increase gathers
in heavier weight fabrics such as woolens and corduroys.

Fabric ................................................................ cotton organdy, 6” x 8”
Notions .............................................. 6” length of heirloom insertion lace
Needle ......................................................................... Wing size 100/16
................................................................................ Double Wing
Thread ...................... two spools embroidery thread or 60 weight cotton

Stitch ...................... straight, blindstitch, decorative stitches as desired
Needle Position .............................................................................. center
Notes
Single Wing Needle
Insert Wing needle. If available, engage the Wing Needle Limitation
function or Security Program (Wing needle option). This alters the stitch
width so that the “wings” of the needle will not hit the presser foot; also
constrains stitches to the center needle position.
Position lace on top of organdy. Select pin stitch or blanket stitch (if not
available, select a narrow zigzag stitch with SW = 2mm). Stitch along
one edge of lace, engaging the Mirror Image function if necessary and
available. Sew along remaining edge, again engaging Mirror Image –
or turning fabric – as needed. Carefully trim fabric from under lace.
Frame lace insertion with three of the stitches suggested in the chart.
Double Wing Needle
Insert Double Wing needle. Select straight stitch. Engage Double Wing
Needle Limitation/Security function if available. Adjust stitch length
to 3mm. Stitch across the fabric on the bias (diagonal). At end, carefully
pivot and sew back along first line of stitching, with “wing” portion of
Double needle entering holes created by the first line of stitching.
Frame center row with two additional lines of stitching:
- 1st row - blindstitch - sew in one direction, pivot, and stitch back
to create a “chain” effect
- 2nd row - decorative straight stitch motif, such as a scallop
Carefully remove the stabilizer following the manufacturer’s directions.
Trim and mount the sample.
Wing Needle Tips:
When selecting stitches to
use with a Wing or Double
Wing Needle, look for multimotion stitches where the
needle enters the same hole
multiple times.
Stitching on the diagonal
(bias) of the fabric allows
holes created by the Wing
needle to open more easily.
To help support fabric and
stitching, temporarily bond a
layer of heavy, water-soluble
stabilizer to wrong side of
fabric using a temporary
spray adhesive.

Select the entreduex or star stitch; adjust stitch length to 3mm.
Attach Cording Foot #25, but do not load cord into the guides
at this time. Stitch a row of entredeux.
Load Cording Foot #25 with lengths of heavy cotton thread
in grooves 2 and 4.
Stitch a second row of entredeux. As the hemstitching is sewn,
the heavy cotton threads fill the outer edges of the stitching,
creating a stitch that looks very similar to fine, purchased
endredeux.
Trim and mount sample.

Once piping is covered, it is ready to be inserted into a seam.
Cut the other piece of fabric in half, making two 2” x 6” pieces.
Inserting Piping
Matching raw edges, place piping right sides together with one long fabric
edge. Place second piece right sides together with piping and first piece.
BERNINA®
Position fabric/piping under presser
foot; adjust needle one position
closer to center.
bernette®
Position fabric/piping under left side
of presser foot; adjust guide to left.
Note: By adjusting the needle position, the previous stitching will not be
seen on the finished project.
Covered Cord Tips:
Fabric strips should be cut
1¼” plus the circumference
of the cord being used. Trim
the 2” strip, if needed, to work
with the cording being used.
This should result in a 5/8”
seam allowance on the
finished piping.
Strips for covering cord
are generally cut on the bias
(diagonal); however, crosswise and lengthwise strips
may be used if there are
no corners to be turned or
curves to maneuver.

Quilting “In-the-Ditch”
Attach walking foot to sewing machine. Select straight stitch.
Owner’s manual: _____
Stitch in the “ditch” of the seams between blocks or pieces.
Notes:
Hand-Look Quilting Stitch
(BERNINA® electronic & bernette® 80e & 90e machines only)
Attach the walking foot to the sewing machine.
Insert a bobbin of colorful 30 weight cotton thread into the
machine; thread the needle with clear monofilament thread.
Select hand-look quilting stitch. Stitch along outer edge of the
patchwork seams, about 1/8” to ¼” from the seamline. Increase
tension as necessary; bobbin threads should pull to surface to
form “stitches”; monofilament creates “spaces” between stitches.
Stippling
Thread the needle with cotton quilting thread. Select straight stitch
and lower the feed dog.
BERNINA®
Attach Freemotion Quilting Foot
#29/29C to the machine.
bernette®
Attach the darning/embroidery
foot to the machine.
Using needle and thread as a “pencil”, doodle in the two “solid”
patches, moving the fabric “paper” under the needle. It takes a
bit of practice to get the hang of this; be patient and you’ll soon
learn to coordinate hand movements and motor speed. Lines of
stippling should not cross over each other, the stitches should be
about 2.5mm long, and all lines should be curves.
This is one sewing technique that can be practiced with a pencil
and paper. Practice your stippling technique by holding a pencil
straight up and down and doodling in the “spaghetti” patterns of
stippling stitches. Freemotion embroidery and quilting can be
practiced in the same way.

Darning/Embroidery Foot
Attach the darning/embroidery
foot to the machine.
Using needle and thread as a “pencil”, trace/stitch outlines about
¼” from the printed figures in the center strip of the quilt block.
If available, engage the Needle Stop Down function when
quilting. This will cause the needle to always stop down in the
fabric, lessening the chance of the fabric shifting each time
stitching is stopped and started again.
Practice makes perfect. Before quilting, create a sample “quilt
sandwich” using the same fabrics and batting as your project.
Practice stitching perfect curves and corners. Even experienced
quilters can always use a warm-up before stitching.

BERNINA® models with BSR capability only (430/440/630/640/730)
BERNINA® Stitch Regulator
The BERNINA Stitch Regulator (BSR) is designed to assist
with freemotion stitching techniques by keeping the stitch length
regular and consistent.
Notes
The BSR is a standard accessory for the...
• aurora 440QE (straight stitch only)
• artista 730 (straight stitch & zigzag)
• artista 200 with 730 upgrade installed (straight stitch & zigzag)
...and is available as an optional accessory for the...
• aurora 430 (straight stitch only)
• artista 630 (straight stitch & zigzag)
• artista 640 (straight stitch & zigzag)
The BSR Foot is equipped with three unique soles, each
designed for different sewing situations:
• A closed, O-shaped, metal sole, similar to that of Darning
Foot #9, for detailed freemotion stitching techniques such as
stippling, bobbin-work, and thread painting.
• An open, C-shaped, metal sole, similar to that of Freemotion
Embroidery Foot #24, for added visibility in front of needle
when following printed or marked lines. The “prongs” of this
sole are slightly curved, facilitating movement over several
layers of fabric and/or thread.
• A large, clear plastic sole for echo-quilting and mediumto large-scale freemotion stitching techniques. The large sole
moves easily over raised areas and is useful for stitching thick
batts, as it compresses a larger area around the needle,
increasing visibility. Cross-hairs and concentric circle markings
aid in accurate stitch placement .
Experiment with each sole; personal preference plays a major role
in determining which sole is most appropriate for you to use with
each project and/or technique.

Changing BSR Soles
To remove a sole from the BSR foot, press the
release buttons (indicated in drawing at right by
red arrows) and slide the sole along the angled
grooves.
Owner’s manual: _____
Notes:
To attach a sole to the BSR foot, place it over
the angled grooves and slide it up until it clicks into place.
Installing the BSR Foot
Lower feed dog. Attach desired sole to BSR as instructed above.
Attach the BSR foot to the sewing machine.
Insert BSR plug into the green socket located
under the lower left corner at the back of the
machine (see sidebar).
aurora 430/440: The BSR symbol will
appear on left side of display screen, and presser foot icon will
indicate Foot #42 (BSR). Press the BSR/Balance button; Mode
1 or Mode 2 – whichever was used last – will be selected, with
stitch length set at 2.0 mm (if machine has not been turned off,
settings will automatically return to the ones last used with the
selected Mode). Stitch length may be adjusted from 1-4 mm.
To Easily Locate
the BSR Socket:
Try one – or both –
of the following tips:
• Look for its reflection – look
for the bright green! – in the
clear half circle on the SlideOn Table (included with the
machine) or Clear Acrylic
Sewing/Quilting Table (optional
accessory). You may need to
lean away from the machine
to see the socket's reflection.
• Using the pointer finger of
your left hand, locate the socket
just to the left of the presser
foot bar. With the right hand,
insert the BSR plug into the
socket.
artista 630/640/730: The BSR screen opens automatically
when plug is inserted into the socket. Mode 1 will automatically
be selected, with stitch length set at 2 mm. Stitch length may
be adjusted from 1-4 mm.
Select Mode 1 or Mode 2 by pressing the appropriate number
on the screen. Note: For further information, see exercises on
pages 114-117.
Activate BSR and start stitching by stepping on the foot control,
or by unplugging the foot control and pressing the Stop/Start
button. Note: A red sensor in the foot will glow when machine
is run in BSR mode.

• Move hands from side to side, then top to bottom, keeping the lines perpendicular to each other (2).
• Move hands in smooth curves from left to right (3).
• Move hands in cursive “l” shapes (4).
• Create stippling shapes – think of interconnecting puzzle pieces with evenly
sized “bumps.” Avoid “painting” yourself into a corner and/or stitching
across a previously stitched line (5).

Notes
Preparation: Crazy Patchwork
Cut a 5-sided shape from one patchwork strip. Place right side up
in center of muslin square. Select another patchwork strip; place
right sides together with center patch, matching one raw edge. Stitch,
stopping at the end of the first patch. Flip open; press.
Select a second patchwork strip. Place along the next edge of the
center patch, over the previously stitched strip. Seam; flip; press.
Trim excess fabric from underneath the strip.
Continue adding strips in this manner, working in a circular direction
around the center patch, until the entire base fabric is covered.
Straight stitch close to the outer edges of the muslin base fabric;
trim excess fabric from around the edges of the square.

satin stitch foot to the machine. Thread needle with variegated
embroidery thread.
Owner’s manual: _____
Notes:
Select an open floral or honeycomb stitch. Sew over one of the
patchwork seams, centering the stitch over the seam. Select a
different stitch; sew another seam. Embellish seams as desired.
Bobbinwork
(BERNINA® electronic & bernette® 65/80e/90e machines only)
Note: Use extra bobbin case only! Do NOT adjust your regular
bobbin case!
Wind a bobbin half full of heavy decorative thread, such as
Designer 6 or Pearl Crown Rayon. Insert bobbin into Black Latch
Bobbin Case (or an extra bobbin case); adjust (loosen, in most
cases) tension screw as necessary.
Select a feather stitch. Place patchwork right side down under
presser foot, with the muslin backing facing up. Stitch along one
of the unembellished seam lines. When finished, turn block right
side up; the bobbin thread is visible on the right side of the block
and resembles hand stitched embroidery. Use a hand-sewing
needle to bring the decorative thread to the back of the work;
secure thread tails.
BERNINA® only: Repeat, using the entredeux stitch. The
bobbinwork on the fabric surface forms small “roses”.
