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.

You can do this. Another possibility is to have an upholsterer look at it, or even a sailmaker, if you have one close.

Pfaff Expresions 3.0. Using my zipper foot with 3 teeth. But can not get the needle to position to sew close to zipper


Um, not sure what presser foot you are using--there are several.

If it is the invisible zipper foot, there is a groove in the bottom of the presser foot that straddles one strip of zipper teeth which positions it close to the needle. Zipper foot #4 snaps to either side to enable the needle to be close to the zipper teeth. The Narrow Adjustable Zipper/Straight Stitch and the Non-Stick Zipper Feet are moveable left or right.

How do you replace a complete zipper and what do you need


Bring your garment to the sewing store. Find a replacement zipper like the one on your garment and make sure the replacement zipper is long enough (ask a clerk for assistance).

Then when you get it home, you will need to carefully remove the broken zipper by cutting the thread stitching that holds the zipper in place. Use a thread nipper or seam ripper but be careful to not cut the fabric. When you get the threads cut, you should be able to remove the broken zipper. Line up the replacement zipper in the open seam, pin in place and stitch.

Kamik champlain zipper broken


You may be able to fix it.... if it is just separated work the zipper head all the way down then use a pair of pliers gently squeeze the zipper head, top to bottom. Then run the zipper.

If the zipper is missing teeth or is unsewn ... take it to a shoe repair place and get it fixed or replaced.

How to sew in a zip? with Empisal dress maker 270


Sewing in a zipper is a fairly easy process, though a bit hard to explain in words :) You need an iron, pins and a zipper foot for your machine. The zipper foot allows the needle to get close enough to the teeth of the zipper without the foot getting hung up by the teeth.

The best thing to do in order to understand the process if you've never done one before is to look a a video on youtube and watch how a zipper is put in. Here is one link that shows how to insert a zipper http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ue5z2rWS588&feature=related ...but there are several others too. Some show specifically "invisible zippers", some show side seam zippers and others show how to put one in where you have a waste band. When you get to the link above look to the right side of the page where you will see other videos to pick from too.

There are lots of interesting sewing videos on youtube. You'll note that though the process is basically the same different seamstresses have different tricks for getting a straight and tidy looking zipper.
