I recently bought a Bernina Nova sewing machine (kinda like a Bernina FW) that has virtually all original accessories. Along with it came a box of attachments that include non-Bernina feet and these:

Does anyone know what these are?

Thanks, Muffet!

Let me try:



(Well, heck.... I don't know why that doesn't work!)

Those look like different widths of rolled hem footsies to me.

Those are hemmer feet. They fit onto a "master" attachment foot. They are similar to a rolled hem (or narrow hem) foot, but the scroll or fold is much larger than the rolled hem foot/feet that come with modern sewing machines.

How to Use Vintage Sewing Machine Attachments - free PDF

The attachment foot is described on page 6 of the booklet; instructions for using the hemmers are on pages 20-21.

<--- is a rolled hem junkie from waaaaay back.

I've done miles of rolled hems... and really love the super tiny one (2mm maybe?) for super see-through fabrics.

It's getting more difficult, it seems, to find them in tiny and large widths these days. So far, as I've been "tricking out" my granddaughter's Lotus with all of the goodies, I've only found one extra size besides the one rolled hemmer foot it came with.

They're fun to use... IMO.
