How do I attach the quilting bar to the walking foot on my Simplicity Quilters Classic? The manual doesn't show how to do it


There should be a hole across the back of the walking foot (penetrates the walking foot usually from right to left, although some feet will have 2 guides--one for left to right, the other left to right) where the bar mounts and a screw to tighten and hold it in place.

When stitching together a quilt sandwich, it is recommended to use a walking foot on your machine. The walking foot moves the upper fabric in conjunction with the feed dogs. Sometimes, if the quilt sandwich is not too thick, a roller foot can also help but may not be sufficient for a quilt sandwich.

You may also check the presser foot pressure on your machine. This regulates the amount of pressure the presser foot applies to the fabric and the feed dogs. If the pressure is too strong, it will tend to push the upper layers of fabric, creating a bubble look. If the pressure is too loose, there is not enough pressure for the feed dogs to physically pull entire quilt sandwich under the presser foot.
(The pressure is adjustable depending on the types of fabric and thicknesses being sewn.)

The walking foot is too aggressive on material, causing it to claw rather than pull through nicely.


Walking foot may not work well on thin material or normal sewing, it is meant for quilting and is applied on several layers of material.

I have an old EuroPro Sewing Machine and lost the user manual years ago.I am trying to figure which accessories to use for quilting. Can you tell which accessory and where it goes and other recommendations...


Try this website, it has lots of good info on feet and where you would use them. http://sewmamasew.com/blog2/2009/06/feet-feet-feet/ This should help you identify the feet youve got. Many machines will have a zig zag foot with room for the needle to swing, a zipper foot, a blind hem foot and a buttonhole foot as a basic selection. There are lots of others too for specialised techniques such as rolled hem, overcasting or tuffting.

For Quilting though you actually can get away with just a straight stitch foot to piece the fabric and a walking foot if you are going to machine stitch the layers and batting together. This is a walking foot.

Lastly, if you want to try stippling or free motion quilting, you'll need a special foot, and it will probably look a little like this.

How to attach a quilt guide


You have to unscrew the screw for the presser foot first. The walking foot will then fit. Use the same screw to attach the walking foot. Before you insert the screw, take the white handle on the walking foot and slide it on the screw arm for the needle. Now tighten the screw.

Looking for a walking foot


Take the machine to an independent dealer and let him show you it works before you buy it.

Stitches


Usually a walking foot is for straight forward stitching only.It keeps the many layers from shifting for you. The "hand-look" quilting takes a couple stitches forward then one back. If you look close, you will see about every other stitch is thicker and stands out more.
