I’m a collector of many things including presser feet and accessories for my BERNINA 570 QE. I recently added the new BERNINA Accessory Case to my collection. Add one to your collection with a giveaway offering you a chance to win your own BERNINA Accessory Case from BERNINA! Scroll to the bottom of the post to find the giveaway.
Here’s a sampling of the feet and accessories I’ve collected so far for my B 570 QE. It’s more that will fit in the accessory case that came with the machine, and up until now I’ve been storing it in a plastic box. Which isn’t ideal, not only because it allows the feet to bang into each other, but it’s hard to find exactly what I’m looking for.
This case includes the perfect size cubby holes for BERNINA feet, both larger feet like the Reverse foot pattern #1D, and smaller profile feet like the Button-sew-on foot #18. The foam is stiff enough to keep the feet firmly in place. What I love best about the Accessory Case is how you have the ability to organize the feet in a way that works best for you.
At the bottom of the case is a tray that holds a total of 18 feet and two of the large BERNINA Hook Jumbo bobbin cases. I use this space for feet that I don’t use as often.
The second tray can hold 20 more feet including the Buttonhole foot with slide #3A and 6 jumbo bobbins. I use this tray for feet I use most often, and it’s easy to grab them when I need them.
The lid of the case holds more feet and includes specific receptacles for Walking foot #50 (along with the 3 soles, two guides, guide holder, and screwdriver), and a space to fit the entire foam holder for the BERNINA Stitch Regulator and accessories. Also in the lid are spaces for the Adjustable rulerwork foot #72 and the additional Couching Inserts and Echo quilting clips compatible with the foot. If you think the stuff in the lid might come out, BERNINA has a fix for that.
Included with the case is a firm foam cover for the accessories in the lid that fits snugly in the compartment and keeps everything in place.
And in between the lid and main compartment is yet another place to store goodies in the shape of a handy flap full of pouches and zipped compartments. I store the case in my sewing space, easy to reach if I need to pull out or put away a foot.
I’ve been sewing with a tray next to my machine for years now to hold whatever feet, accessories, and tools I am currently using on a project.
This system works perfectly along with my new Accessory Case, I pull out the case at the start of a new project to make sure I have everything I need to use, and place the feet in the tray within easy reach of my machine. And with how easy it is to change the feet on a BERNINA, it only takes a few seconds to switch feet mid-project! You can see the BERNINA Accessory Case and pick one up for yourself at your nearest BERNINA store.
