Half stitch foot control for Bernina 220
Am about to buy,as a second machine, a Bernina 220 so I can sew in places other than my sewing space at home.Thinking of including the half stitch foot control(an optional extra), with this purchase so I can control the needle up/down facility with my foot.My main machine is a Designer 1 which has this facility. The Designer 1 presser foot also lifts slightly, in the needle down position, to allow fabric manipulation.
What do other Bernina owners think of this half stitch foot pedal?? I know it comes as standard with more expensive Bernina’s Worth the extra cost, easy to use, or not??
Thought I’d ask before fully committing my hard earned money.
