Using optional the walking
foot
With the walking foot, both pieces of fabric are fed
evenly by the feed dogs and the teeth on the presser
foot. This is useful when sewing fabrics that are hard
to feed such as vinyl and leather and when sewing
fabrics that easily slip such as velvets or when
quilting.
Use the screwdriver to attach the walking foot.
■ Attaching the walking foot
Note
Thread the needle manually when using the
walking foot, or only attach the walking foot
after threading the needle using the needle
threader.

CAUTION
● Be sure to securely tighten the screw with
the screwdriver, otherwise the needle
may touch the presser foot, causing it to
bend or break.
● Before starting to sew, slowly turn the
handwheel toward you (counterclockwise)
and check that the needle does not touch
the presser foot. If the needle hits the
presser foot, the needle may bend or break.

When sewing with the walking foot, sew at a
speed between slow and medium.
