Welcome to our?125 years celebration?of the BERNINA company! We’re celebrating by bringing you lots of inspiration and focusing on the technique of decorative stitches this month, and giving you the chance to win a fun prize package! Scroll down to the bottom of the post to find the giveaway.

The decorative stitches included in your sewing machine can be grouped into two main categories: open stitches and dense or satin stitches. Both open and dense styles of decorative stitches can add decoration to any project you are stitching, but each type of stitch has different needs to create the perfect looking finished stitch. Follow these tips and tricks to make the most out of your open style and dense style sewing machine decorative stitches.

Stitches that are categorized as open are made of single stitches repeating to make a design or letters. Open decorative stitch patterns often work by moving back-and-forth under the needle to create the finished stitch pattern.

The Reverse pattern foot #1/#1C/#1D is specially designed to help the sewing machine form perfect open stitches. Creating perfectly sewn open decorative stitches is this foot’;s special superpower! The Reverse pattern foot is engineered with a special indentation under the foot both in front of and behind the needle, to allow the stitching of thread patterns that move forward and backward. The foot is marked with a clearly indented center line to help you align stitches as you sew. While this is the perfect foot for sewing open decorative stitches, it’;s not ideal for the thicker build-up of threads created with dense or satin style decorative stitches.

The Open embroidery foot #20/#20C/#20D is perfect for sewing decorative stitches when you really need to see exactly where your stitches are going, such as on a border or around an appliqué shape. The wide open area in front of the needle gives you maximum visibility while the smooth indentation under the foot allows the stitches room to form properly.

Other favorite feet to use when creating open decorative stitches include the Reverse pattern foot with clear sole #34/#34C/#34Dlinen pillow covers, Clear embroidery foot #39/#39C and the Non-stick zigzag foot #52/#52C/#52D for sewing oilcloth or tacky fabrics.

One of the most popular type of built-in decorative stitches are the lettering stitches. Not all models have lettering stitches available, but this feature is a fun way to personalize your sewing projects. Read up in your sewing machine manual to find directions for adding individual letters to your memory in order to stitch out complete words, names, or phrases. You can follow all of the same tips above to make the most of your lettering stitches. Use lettering to stitch a name on grosgrain ribbon to create simple name tape, great for tagging your sewing supplies at class or retreat, or for sewing names into clothing.

Use lettering stitches in the binding of your quilt to add your name, a date, or a personal message.

Stitches that are categorized as dense or satin style decorative stitches?are made of stitches formed very close together with a narrow zigzag stitch. Dense or satin style decorative stitches form behind the needle as the machine sews to create the finished stitch pattern.

The Embroidery foot #6 has a wide indentation on the sole to allow the dense stitches to form when coming off the needle. The indentation is wider at the back of the foot to allow for turning smoothly around corners and curves. There is a small metal bridge in front of the needle which provides extra stabilization for fabrics to help prevent tunneling or puckering while sewing. This is the perfect foot to help you create the best dense decorative stitches up to 5mm wide.

The?Open embroidery foot #20/#20C/#20D is perfect for sewing dense decorative and satin stitches up to 9mm in width. It is very similar to Embroidery foot #6 with a wide, smooth indentation behind the needle, but the area in front of the needle is completely open to offer maximum visibility. This foot is a favorite for sewing dense or satin stitches on the edges of appliqué shapes, or any project that demands precise placement of your decorative stitches.

Other feet that work well with dense decorative stitches are the Clear appliqué foot #23 and Embroidery foot with clear sole #39/#39C.
