What foot and setting do I need to sew strips of bias binding together.


If you are sewing bias strips end to end, any foot would work. A 1/4" seam allowance is probably fine. You'll probably just need to cut the ends @ 45 degree angles and match them up before stitching. Sewing them at 90 degree angles creates a big bulk of fabric whereas 45 degree angles spread the bulk out when applied to your cushion fabric.

The pressure foot pressure is not feeding the fabric. I have adjusted the tension but still not feeding the fabric. What else can I do?


Tension does not affect the ability of the machine to feed fabric, except in extreme cases perhaps when tension is too tight.

You probably need to adjust the presser foot pressure of your machine. Lighter weight fabric is more difficult to feed, therefore the pressure needs to be increased. (Heavy weight fabric will sometimes push the upper layer of fabric in front of the presser foot, therefore less pressure is required.) Even so, very fine slick fabric (silk, satin, chiffon) sometimes still needs additional help. In such cases, a roller foot, teflon foot, or walking foot may be beneficial. There is also the possibility that the feed dog teeth have been worn so they do not grip the fabric like they should. (Avoid running the machine without fabric between the presser foot and feed dogs to protect the feed dogs from unnecessary wear.) If they are worn, usually they can be replaced.

Another possibility is that the feed dogs do not raise as high as they should. This would most likely require a technician's assistance.

Um, as an additional thought, make sure the presser foot surface is smooth. Any rough surface (nicks, rust, etc) will restrict the fabric's ability to move.

How do you lay out the fabric for Butterick B6380?


The pattern instructions show how to lay the pattern on the fabric. It differs depending on the width of the fabric, ie some fabrics are only 40" wide, others are 60". Plus, you need to be sure to lay the pattern direction on the grain of the fabric in order to get the proper drape.

Do you need to wash fabric before laying it on the pattern?


Depends on the fabric...cotton shrinks quite a bit and some fabrics should not be washed, like some wools. And make sure you lay the pattern on top of the fabric...you have to be able to see the pattern to cut it.

My machine will chain without fabric but as soon as I place fabric and sew it will not make stitches on fabric


Be sure to use brand new needles in the machine (confirm they are the correct needles for the machine) and make sure they are installed facing the correct direction and pushed all the way up before tightened. Start a chain without the fabric, then when it's a couple inches long, raise the presser foot and add the fabric.

Could be your machine has a timing issue and probably requires service.

I'm having problems attaching collar to top A of 5556 butterick Help


Difficult to advise since we don't know what type of collar it is. Perhaps, take the pattern and your garment to the local fabric store and ask one of the wonderful ladies there how to proceed. You can also check out some sewing books at the library.

Or contact Butterick directly:
