Extra Wide Table

Attach to your sewing machine with the appropriate fixings for when you need a larger work area.

Assembling the Extra Wide Table:

  1. Peel off the backing paper from the rubber soles and attach to the bottom of the legs.
  2. Attach the 4 legs to the table top with the screws.
  3. Select the table support short or long which is suitable for your sewing machine.  Attach the table support to the underside of the table top by inserting the hooks into the slots.
  4. Remove the extension table.  Place the assembled table on the machine so the table catches the pin on the backside of the free arm.
  5. Adjust the height of the table top by turning the adjusting screw.

Free Motion Foot - Open Toe

The free motion foot is used for 'free hand' embroidery and darning to ensure proper stitch formation, minimize skipped stitches and puckering and also to protect your fingers whilst you move your fabric freely under the needle.  The open toe greatly improves visibility of stitches.

Attaching the foot:

  1. Remove the foot holder and attach the free motion quilting foot.  Make sure that the needle enters the hole in the foot.

Machine settings:

  • Stitch: Straight Stitch (left needle position)
  • Thread tension: Auto
  • Feed dog: Lowered

Sewing:

  1. Sew at medium speed while guiding the quilt layers with your hands.  Move the quilt layers 3mm or less per stitch.
  2. Caution: Do not move or pull the quilt layers toward you when sewing with the open toe foot, otherwise the needle can warp and may hit the needle plate to break.

    Notes: Use the straight stitch needle plate when sewing with straight stitches.  Increase the thread tension to 4-6 when shewing straight stitch with centre needle position

Applique Foot - Open Toe

Applique is easier and results are more precise thanks to this foot’s shorter length at the front and an elevated heel which allow for easy manoeuvring on cures and angles.

Machine settings:

  • Stitch pattern: Applique stitches

To attach:

  1. Insert the rear pin of the foot into the rear groove of the foot holder.
  2. Gently lower the presser foot lifter while holding the foot with your finger to fit the foot.

    * Please refer to your machines instruction manual for presser foot attachment and removal information.

To sew:

  1. To turn corners, lower the needle at the outer edge of the applique and raise the presser foot.
  2. Pivot the fabric around the needle and lower the presser foot.
  3. Start sewing in the new direction.

 

Ditch Quilting Foot

Use this foot for perfect placement when stitching in the ditch. The guide on the foot can also be used when adding top stitching along seams.

Machine settings:

  • Stitch pattern: Straight stitches (centre needle position)

    * Please refer to your machines instruction manual for presser foot attachment and removal information.

To sew:

Set the folded edge along the presser foot guide and sew with a straight stitch.

Walking Foot - Open Toe

Designed with a set of built-in feed dogs that grip and advance the upper layer of fabric whilst working in unison with the sewing machine feed dogs as they grip the underside of the fabric.  This helps to prevent layers of fabric from "shifting apart" as they move through the machine.

1/4" Seam Foot

A popular foot with patchworkers for that essential 1/4" seam.  The guide on the foot enables you to sew a perfect 1/4" seam every time.

 

Table Dimensions: 500 x 300mm (16" x 11") Approx.
