Question about Kenmore 15212 Mechanical Sewing Machine
When sewing two layers of material with batting between, my machine seems to push the top layer of material ahead of the bottom layer. I've tried adjusting the tension, width and stitch length and I can't seem to fix the problem. Thanks for any help.
Try using a "walking foot" presser foot. It has feed dogs on the top to help all the layers go through evenly. A generic brand usually fits most all machines. :)

This is because the feed dogs grab and carry the bottom layer, the top layers glide along. There are several solutions.
#1 pinning, pinning, more pinning
#2 support the layers by holding the piece in front of the machine with one hand and behind the machine with the other hand. if you're left handed and try to do this, bless your heart, it's tough
#3 use a walking foot or a roller foot or an even feed, depending on your machine
#4 it is possible to reduce the tension on the presser foot while you work on this piece. just remember to put it back before you start to sew on the next project!
there are more tricks but this should get you started. Happy Stitching!
