CHANGING THE PRESSER FOOT
Raise the presser foot lever.
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 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 pat-
terns with reinforcement stitches. (see page
