I want to buy a #12 foot for my 550 but the local dealer didn't have one.

He had a #12 9mm foot and said it would work on my machine. Before I

decide anything I would like to get some feedback from you out there if

this is correct. The foot is expensive and I don't feel like buying

something that won't fit my machine.

Thanks.

The groove in the 12C foot is a lot bigger than the groove in the #12 foot.

The 12C will definitely work on your machine. 12/12C are two feet I

recommend that any model (5.5 or 9mm) owner purchase if they're

interested in this foot. There is a difference between the grooves on

the 2 feet, with the 12C being deeper. The 12C also offers a cutout on

the top of the foot which is useful for guiding yarns, etc. when couching.

I have a project to apply cord to the outside edge of a jacket - there will be two flat cords to be applied side-by-side using a monofilament thread. I have a 440QE.

This video - ---Links-Are-Forbidden--- about 4') shows what I'm interested in doing. This is using the 12C foot. At the beginning of the video she says she recommends 12C "for all my Bernina users".Even though the 12C is for a 9mm machine, can I use it on the 5mm 440QE?I'm also interested in using the cord through the foot as shown later in the video.Have any of you Bernina experts used this foot, please?Many thanks,Jacquie(sunny France)

If you already own this foot, it will work like it is a 12 foot .... no problem to use it. . If you are buying one, if I were you, I'd get the 12 foot ... it costs less.

Thanks for the comments so far..The #12 foot is 25. here, and the #12C is 30.. Is the extra 5. worth it for the hole in the centre of the 12C foot to apply cording? I've already tried applying the cord with the free-motion couching foot, without success, as the cord is probably too thin.Jacquie

Well, I guess another way to look at it is that, if you go ahead and buy the #12C foot, when you upgrade the machine, you won't end up buying another one of the same feet just to get the 9 mm option. ;)

.I have 2 of many Bernina feet as I have a 5.5mm 630machine, 9mm 730 & 830 machine. I use the C feet on my 5mm machinesometimes if I need a larger tunnel or opening and I've used 5mm feet on my 9mmmachines. It all depends upon the project and what you are workingwith. I will admit to having somewhat of a foot fetish with Berninafeet! If anyone asks me why I have 2 of the same foot number...well, it'sbecause I NEED (or might need) them, right????!!!!

It depends on your project. The 12 foot will accommodate a 3-4 mm

diameter cord, while the 12C foot takes a 6 mm cord.
