 Treating your machine to some new feet is like treating yourself to a new pair of shoes.

The ideal tool for creating your own distinctive embroidery motifs.


BERNINA’s practical Magnifying Lens set sharpens your view of the work area. The set contains three magnifying lenses of different strengths, enabling you to choose the most suitable magnification for the project at hand.

The lenses provide an optimum view when threading, and magnify the stitching area. This is especially helpful for precision sewing in tricky places. The magnifying lenses also make lighter work of embroidery, sparing your eyes and reducing fatigue. The Magnifying Lens set also features a bracket for simple mounting to the sewing machine.
