Did You Know? You may have wondered about sewing machines that have Dual Feed and when or why you would use Dual Feed instead of a Walking Foot. Well here’s some insight…..
BERNINA has two enhanced systems for moving fabric through the machine, one passive and one active.
As it relates to Quilting… The Dual Feed is a passive system. It helps move fabric after the stitch is made by pulling on the fabric behind the presser foot. It is designed for two layers of fabric. And although it does a good job on smaller projects with multiple layers and putting on bindings, you probably would not use it to quilt larger quilts.
The Walking Foot is an active system. It has feed dogs on the foot that match the movement of the feed dogs on the machine. These two sets of feed dogs work simultaneously to move the fabric. It is designed for multiple layers because it presses all the layers together to move them all at the same time. This would be the choice for quilting a quilt. It also does a better job on bindings if the quilt has not been quilted all the way out to the edge.
As it relates to Garment Sewing… The dual feed is wonderful for garment sewing as that is generally two layers of fabric. Slippery fabrics, textured fabrics such as velvet and velour, sewing together laces for heirloom sewing are all fantastic with the dual feed.
