Fun with Circles

Sew perfectly round circles in a range of sizes (1.5″ to 10.5″), using decorative stitch patterns, alphabets, or even couching fancy fibers! Circles can be stitched clockwise or counterclockwise.
BERNINA Circular Embroidery Attachment #83

Making Perfect Circles

One of the most exciting things about this handy attachment is that you can use it with nearly all of the other Bernina presser feet. The Circular Embroidery Attachment sits outside and around the feed dogs of your machine, so it won’t interfere with all those other lovely feet.

Circular Embroidery Attachment

  • Create perfect circular pintucks using one of the Pintuck Feet (#30, #31, #32, #33) along with the Circular Embroidery Attachment.
  • The Open Embroidery Foot #20/20C is also a natural with this attachment, giving full visibility for perfect alignment.
  • Couch ribbons, cords, or stranded beads with the #12/12C Bulky Overlock Foot. Or, couch several strands at once, using the 3-Groove Cording Foot #22 or the 5-Groove Cording Foot #25.
  • As a general rule, use the same presser you would use if sewing your chosen stitch or technique in a straight line.
