CHANGING THE PRESSER FOOT
Attaching 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 quilting or
velvet) or fabrics that slip easily (such as vinyl
cloth, leather, or synthetic leather).
• 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 pat-
terns with reinforcement stitches.
