Bernina Walking foot – help!!
I’ve been after a walking foot for my Bernina Activa 135 S for ages, but haven’t been able to afford one direct from a shop. So, I’ve been keeping my eyes open on Ebay for a suitable foot. I thought I’d found it – brand new and boxed – through a process of elimination (there was another one for sale at the same time, whose part number and age predated the one I was interested in, and the box and contents etc looked right). I tried to trace the part number on the internet, but without success.
So I bid, won, and .. even though it looks identical to my friend’s walking foot, my part number is ONE digit out, and the fork that’s supposed to fit over the needle area drops down and off when I try and use it!
I could cry …
I’ve just put it back up for sale, so I can mitigate at least SOME of my losses, but have no idea what machine my foot actually fits! It’s got two soles, and is 008968.71.00 – does this ring any bells with anyone? The box looks modern, but maybe it isn’t!!!
All help gratefully received! xx
