For optimal results, use the straight-stitch plate
Straight-stitch hemmer #62 is the specialist when it comes to precision stitching and narrow hems. The scroll on the front of the presser foot lets you turn the fabric under twice in a single operation. This double-turned fabric forms a sturdy hem that won’t fray.
The sole of the presser foot features a guide which holds the fabric edge together up to the needle hole, preventing the fabric from slipping out of the scroll. BERNINA makes a total of seven hemmer presser feet. With Straight-stitch hemmer #62 , the width of the channel in the sole of the foot corresponds to the finished hem width of 2mm.
