Question about Sewing Machines
General instructions for using a darning foot to FMQ:
Put in a new needle, install the darning foot, then be sure to DROP the feed dogs. Then practice on a scrap quilt sandwich (made up of the fabric and batting you plan to use on your quilt). (You may need to readjust the tensions if your top or bottom threads are popping through to the other side.) If you've not FMQ'd before, practice, practice, practice. You need to get your brain in tune with your hands (much like you did in elementary school learning to write). It even helps to get a white board and practice making FMQ designs with erasable white board markers or a pencil and paper pad. A FMQ instructor told us that it takes 50-60 times before your brain and hands develop the coordination. The more you do it, the better you will get. When FMQing, practice moving your hands as smoothly and consistently as possible. If your hands jerk, your stitches will sew it. Also, practice using a consistent machine speed for even stitching.
