  1. That stinks you have to rip the zipper out. Hope it works this time.


  2. A Bernina pintuck foot works quite well for doing invisible zips too.

    Oh yes Bernina does too have an invisible zipper, it’s #35. I think I paid around $35 for it about 3 years ago — then again, as lousy as it works (and I pretty much love what every other Bernina foot can do) maybe they’ve discontinued it??? I’ve had nothing but frustration using the thing. The last time I tried to use it, I tried, and tried, and ripped and ripped and ripped!!!! I finally tried just putting the zipper in the slot of the foot, and tried to slide it down the zipper — no go!!!! Well no wonder the foot gets stuck!!! I’ll have to give the #3 foot a try, or a pintuck foot, which one did you use Fiona? And try to get a refund from Bernina. Seems like the right thing for them to do.
    Oh, yeah, here’s the link (URL) for the video of it: http://www.berninausa.com/product_detail-n25-i285-sUS.html — “ride thru smoothly”, my foot!!!! No pun intended!

    Hee hee. designdreamer, I didn’t mean that Bernina didn’t make one. I just meant that *my* Bernina didn’t have one. My dealer went out of business a few months after I brought home my “sewing computer” and getting a new foot means a drive to Atlanta. I try to avoid that as much as possible! After reading of your experience with it, I won’t bother with their foot. That #3 foot works great for the purpose.
