Question about Husqvarna Sewing Machines
You didn't specify your machine brand or model which may make a difference in setting it up.
Using the machine with it in a cabinet or flat extension plate is necessary to allow easy movement and keep the fabric flat. Make sure that you have enough layers of fabric to give stability to the stitch.
With the needle bar in its highest position and the presser bar up, install the foot on the machine. Lower the feed dogs (if your machine has the feature), set the pattern for straight stitch and LOWER the presser foot. Hold the upper thread with your left hand and make one rotation of the handwheel with your right hand. Pull the top thread and the bobbin thread will come up with it. As you stitch, move the fabric in an even, fluid motion. This will take a little practice, but it will get easier with time. Make up some "sandwiches" to practice with. A sandwich is two pieces of cotton fabric with batting in between, usually six to ten inches square.
Your upper tension may need to be adjusted a number or two up or down. Experiment!

Remove yourcurrent presser foot from your sewing machine, and attach the darning foot asyou would any foot. Darning feet look different, depending on the manufacturer,but most will maintain a "C" or "O" shape using eithermetal or clear plastic at their bases.
Drop the feed dogs, or use a cover plate on your machine if feeddogs are not available. If this is not possible, adjust the stitch length ofyour machine to zero or as low as your machine will allow.
Slide your fabric or quilt sandwich into place below the darningfoot. Lower the lever of the darning foot, and hold onto the upper thread withone hand.
Take one complete stitch, and pull up the upper thread to bringthe bobbin thread to the surface. Take multiple stitches in the same place tosecure the threads.
Run the machine as you free-motion sew or quilt your fabric piece,using your fingers to move the fabric instead of the feed dogs, until yourstitching is complete. Replace the darning foot with your preferred presserfoot when finished.
