Now I am not one who is super savvy when it comes to a sewing machine. Most of the time I am just pretty much feeling around in the dark. Anyways, I was researching online about how to use a sewing machine to quilt. If you are like me, it always seems that my fabric shifts when I am sewing it. So I wanted to see how other people fix that problem. Well that is when I discovered the "Walking Foot". I would have to say that it is an amazing tool. I took a trip out to my local JoAnn's and they have a sewing maching section. I inquired to the lady there about them and she showed me the one that they had. I guess the make them universal to they should fit about any machine. I think the total was about $25.00. So I took it home and tried it.
I would have to say that it is a very nifty little contraption. The whole purpose behind it is it grabs the top fabric along with the bottom fabric so that both move through at the same pace. A normal sewing machine just pulls the bottom fabric and the top just slides along. I think that it also helps with the speed of the fabric through the machine. If you are like me and have a simple sewing machine that does not allow you to change the speed, this helps you. I know my pictures aren't that great but here is the one that I purchased:
If you are looking for an easier way to sew two pieces of fabric or more together, then this is a worthwhile purchase. It definitely saves on the headache of having your fabric move all over the place!
