How do I attach the walking foot ?
The walking foot holds the fabric between the presser foot and the feed dogs to feed the fabric. This enables you to have better fabric control when sewing difficult fabrics (such as quilted fabrics or velvet) or fabrics that slip easily (such as vinyl, leather, or synthetic leather).
- Thread the needle manually when using the walking foot, or only attach the walking foot after threading the needle using the “Automatic Threading” button.
- When sewing with the walking foot, sew at medium to low speeds.
The walking foot can only be used with straight or zigzag stitch patterns. Reverse stitches cannot be sewn with the walking foot. Only select straight or zigzag stitch patterns with reinforcement stitches.
Press the “Needle Position” button to raise the needle.
If the message “OK to automatically lower the presser foot? ” appears on the LCD screen, press OK to continue.
