Yes, If you have a zigzag function use that. First you must keep the zigzag function stationary then set it to about a one or two on the stitch dial. Try that!

SOURCE: How to use a zipper foot please

  1. Step 1 To prepare the fabric for a centered zipper application, use the standard presser foot to baste the opening of the fabric shut using 5/8 inch seam allowance. Press the seam allowance open. Place the zipper teeth side down on the seam allowance and pin the zipper to the seam allowance only.
  2. Step 2 Release the standard presser foot from your machine. There may be a button or lever behind the foot that you need to press. Put the standard foot in its holder or someplace where it won’t get lost.
  3. Step 3 Decide which side of the machine you want to attach the zipper foot to. Zipper feet are asymmetrical, with one side that’s wider than the other. You’ll want to put the narrow side toward the zipper teeth, and the wider side away from the zipper teeth.
  4. Step 4 Attach the zipper foot to the sewing machine. You may need to line up the bar on the zipper foot with the presser foot holder, then lower the presser foot by lowering the lever. Raise the presser foot and make sure the zipper foot is securely attached.
  5. Step 5 Place the prepared fabric with the pinned zipper in the sewing machine. Lower the needle into the zipper tape and the seam allowance only, then lower the zipper foot. Stitch the zipper tape to the seam allowance. To sew the other side of the zipper to the seam allowance, remove the zipper foot from the sewing machine and install it on the other side of the presser foot holder.
  6. Step 6 Topstitch the outside of the fabric to each side of the zipper tape, making sure that the zipper foot is on the appropriate side of the machine for each side. Remove the basting with a seam ripper.

Hi, its very common for these to need to be recalibrated by a technician.
Possibly its time to have your machine serviced anyway as this is usually when they get recalibrated. I don't think you could be using it incorrectly as there really is just one way.

Got bernina 1015 sport sewing machinewith one foot want to buy zip,buttonhole &overlock foot is ther a special number or do all bernina feet fit al types of bernina machines


This machine uses 'New style' snap on feet. The reason it is 'new' is because old style Bernina feet are the complete foot, whereas new style you just 'snap on' the foot base.

Ebay is the best place to find original Bernina feet at very reasonable prices. I recently purchased a solid steel 'old style' foot from UK for U.S. $28.

When purchasing zipper feet, decide if you want regular zipper foot or invisible zipper foot. Often it is cheaper to order both at the same time, due to S&H fees.

What are he different feet used for?


The main types of feet are:
1. ZigZag foot. This has a wide gap for the needle to move from side to side and the two pointy ends of the feet curve upwards. This is used for ZigZag and decorative stitches,
2. Straight Stitch foot. This has a small round gap and one side is usually wider than the other. It's used for straight stitching.
3. Rolled-Hem foot. This has a spiral in the middle and is used for rolling and sewing hems neatly.
4. Zipper Foot. This has no gap as the needle goes to one side or the other of the foot. It usually has two attachment points for snapping on to the shank, depending on which side of the zipper you are sewing.
5. Invisble Hem foot. Used for making invisible hems. It's hard to describe how it looks. Mine has extra white plastic parts around it and some kind of screw to make adjustments as to width etc.
6. Buttonhole foot. My buttonhole foot is white and has numbers along one edge. The size of the buttonhole can be altered, using the numbers as a guide.
7. Edging foot. This has a strip of springy metal on the left side and is used to guide the material into the path of the needle in order to sew close to the edge to prevent fraying.
8. Rolling foot. This has rollers and is useful for sewing thicker materials or quilts etc. It is similar, but not as good as a walking foot.
9. You might also have a Teflon ZigZag foot, it's the same as the zigzag foot but made of white plastic. It's used for sewing vinyl and leather materials.
I think that's it, hope this helps!

I have a toyota 2800 sewing machine which was my mums so is atleast 15 years old but still works a treat, i'm trying to locate a zipper & button hole foot for it, is their a universal one which will...


Hi
I got parts for my Toyota 9090 from the Aisin French site.
I couldn't see your model listed but did find parts fro the 2600, maybe they are similar?
http://www.aisin.fr/-c-44_46.html?page=1&sort=3a
They have a buttonhole foot which looks identical to the one for my machine and a couple of zipper feet.
Postage was quite expensive, it will probably cost more than the pieces themselves.
However, I had the parts in 4 days (from France to Spain).
Hope this helps!

Every thing is missing


Go to www.managemyhome.com and you can download a free manual there. That will give you the directions to operate the machine as well as the Parts Numbers for any accessories you may want. I bought this same machine a few weeks ago. I have tested out almost every stitch on it, & almost the only 2 presser feet I have needed have been the Zigzag Foot (A) and the Satin Stitch Foot (F). Of course, if you want to do buttonholes or zippers, you will want hte Buttonhole Foot (R) and the Zipper Foot (E). Parts Numbers for ordering are listed for every part on page 6 of the manual. Good luck!
