Sewing on the heavy fabric
The black button on the right side of the
presser foot will lock the presser foot in a
horizontal position if you push it in before
lowering the presser foot. This ensures even
feeding at the beginning of a seam and
helps when sewing multiple layers of fabric
such as sewing over seams when hemming
jeans.
When you reach the point of an increased
thickness, lower the needle and raise the
presser foot. Press the toe of the foot and
push in the black button, then lower the foot
and continue sewing.
The black button releases automatically
after sewing few stitches.
You also can place another piece of fabric
with the same thickness at the back of the
seam. Or support the presser foot while
feeding by hand and sewing toward the
folded side.

To tailor the satin or decorative stitch pattern,
you may adjust the length and width of the
pattern by pressing the stitch length and
width adjustment buttons. Experiment with
fabric scraps until you get the desired length

Sew a row of stitching, keeping the raw edge of
fabric aligned with the right edge of foot. The
stitches automatically cause the fabric to gather.
Suitable for light to medium weight fabrics. If
your fabric is light, such as batiste or lace, you
will have more gathers.
To gather and attach gathered fabric in
one step
Look closely at the gathering foot to see a slot
on the bottom.
When using the slot, you can gather the bottom
layer of the fabric while attaching it to a flat top
layer, such as the waistband on a dress bodice.
- Remove the presser foot holder and attach
gathering foot.
- Place the fabric to be gathered with right side
up under the foot.
- Place top layer of the fabric right side down in
the slot.
- Guide the two layers as illustrated.

Please Note:
- When testing machine for adjustments to
achieve desired fullness, work with 10"
increments of the fabric, trims or elastic. This
makes it easier to determine the adjustments
and how much change is needed for your
project. Always test on your project fabric and
on the same grainline as will be used in your

regular foot on your machine.
Your sewing machine offers excellent stitch quality on a wide range of fabrics from delicate chiffons
to multiple layers of denim.
The Walking Foot accessory equalizes the feeding of the upper and lower layers of fabric and
improves the matching of plaids, stripes and patterns. It also helps to prevent uneven feeding of
very difficult fabrics.
