Today’s tip: How to adjust the hover position of the presser foot while the needle is down.
When you first turn on your new BERNINA some settings have not yet been selected for you. The welcome screen will look much like this:
The screen is blue and the presser foot does not lift when the needle stops in the down position. This can be useful if you are sewing very slippery fabric or do not use a lot of pins to keep your layers together. (I recommend using lots of pins myself.) To lift the presser foot with this setting you need to either use the up and down button manually or the use the knee lift (Freehand System).
