January Attachment of the Month – Spanish Hemstitch

It’s not too late to take advantage of this month’s BERNINA Attachment of the Month!

The Spanish Hemstitch attachment screws into the free arm of the machine and works with the #20 (or #20C, depending on your machine). The attachment allows you to join fabric edges at a defined distance, determined by the cord guide used.

The Spanish Hemstitch attachment takes two pieces of fabric and joins them together with thread, still with the characteristic of air between stitches. The different cord guides affect the space between the two pieces by changing in width. Multiple cord guides are provided for different thicknesses of fabric and for both 5.5 & 9 mm machines. There’s also a slot on top of the cord guide to, are you ready, guide cord in between the two fabrics and stitched in place.

Not all stitches react the same way to Spanish Hemstitching. Because a significant portion of the stitch is not on fabric, it’s best to choose a stitch that minimizes this. It’s always a good idea to test them out before jumping in to your project.
