Question about Bernina Virtuosa 160
The feed dogs are not coming up high enough to catch the fabric when I first start feeding in the fabric. I just had the machine serviced and cleaned and I expressed this problem and he said everything is fine. But I know this has not been addressed. It is still not working properly. I need to put the fabric in under the needle at least 2 stitches past the needle for it to start pulling the fabric through.
I have had similar problem with my virtuosa 155. If you can't get it into the shop to have feed dogs adjusted - try starting a small scrap of fabric first , then chain sew with your piece right behind it. This has worked for me. Also if you finish with a scrap as well, it saves thread as you don't have to pull so much extra into thread cutter. Just snip between pieces.

The fault is with the height of the feed dogs it is an internal adjustment that you tech. should make. As a guide if you cant see the majority of the front teeth above the plate or feel them with your finger then they are to low and need to be raised. Also check that the pressure of the sewing foot is set in the right position on the left side of the machine.
