Free-Hand System (FHS)

Knee lever upgrade for your machine - Installation kit for BERNINA sewing machines


Retrofit Kit - needs to be fitted by a Bernina Technician

If you already have the system the knee levers can be added separately


Simultaneous lifting of the presser foot

And lowering of the feed dog

Convenient operation with the knee

Hands remain free to work


The Free-Hand System (FHS) Retrofit Kit lets you add the practical presser foot lifter to BERNINA sewing machines that did not have this feature initially. This useful tool makes it easy to work with thin, delicate fabrics that require extra care in handling or extra heavy fabrics that require both your hands to stay in place.

The knee-operated presser foot lifter raises the presser foot while lowering the feed dog. This creates significantly more space and noticeably improves clearance under the presser foot, which in turn facilitates fabric handling. This saves you time and helps you achieve perfect results.
