May's FEET of the Month:

Bernina Feet of the Month:
#88 Binder attachment with #95/95C

BERNINA has an amazing deal going on this month! They're offering 25% off the purchase of a #88 Binder attachment (which comes in 3 sizes) with the #95/95C foot! 

Binder foot #95/95C is a specialized presser foot that is used in conjunction with the binder attachments. For 9mm machines, you'll use the #95C, for 5.5mm machines, the #95. The design of the foot facilitates the easy application of bias binding with the #88 attachment. 

Binder attachment #88 for use with unfolded bias tape produces even, neat binding on quilts, clothing seams, and home furnishings. It is available in three different widths: 28mm (scant 1 1/8"), 32mm (1 1/4"), and 38mm (scant 1 1/2"). 

Together, the #95/95C and binder attachment #88 work to feed the unfolded tape through the bias tape feeder, and position it accurately on the fabric's edge. It is then held securely in place until it's sewn onto the fabric. When used conjointly, these feet will make sewing bias-binding on your projects a breeze!
