Wondering if the walking foot is installed correctly. There is a piece of metal which has a "fork" design or "C shape" on the end. That fork must encircle to the needle screw.

When sewing with walking foot through 3 layers of fabrics are feed dogs in up or down position?


You should have the feed dogs up, grabbing and moving the lowest layer of the fabric. This is the standard position of the feed dogs, unless you are doing free-hand motion or darning stitches.

The advantage of the walking foot is that it keeps the top layer of fabric moving even for fabric layers that don't stick together under a standard foot. If the feed dogs are below the cover plate, you have the same problem with the fabric layers moving at different rates. It just reverses which layer feeds faster than the others.

I hope this helps.

Adjust machine


The waling foot sewing machine attachments I am familiar with don't exactly walk. They have a presser foot that glide over the cloth like every other presser foot. In addition they have feed dogs that work in unison with the feed dogs built in the machine. When the needle penetrates the material, the lower dogs drop and come forward and the upper dogs raise and come forward. As the needle exits the cloth,the lower dogs rise and pull the cloth while the upper dogs drop and pull the cloth. The arm on the attachment that operates the upper dogs rides on the screw that holds the needle. There is nothing to adjust.

Bernina walking foot


Hm, just guessing here.

Have you checked to make sure the walking foot (u-shaped) bar is still attached to the needle bar? Are the feed dogs still in the up position and operating like they should?

Learn How to Use Sewing Machine Walking Foot

Something else that I've run across in my sewing adventures is that walking feet need periodic oiling to keep them operating. Just manipulate the walking foot with your hands and watch where there are moving joints. Then apply a small drop of good quality sewing machine oil to each joint. Work it in and then wipe off the excess so it won't stain your fabric.

I have just started learning how to quilt and I was told I needed a walking foot to quilt the sandwich together. I purchased one today, but I don't even know how to attach the foot. I also need to...


The foot is attached as normal, but when you're attaching it, the fork-shaped part that sticks out of the right-hand-side has to be hooked around the round pillar sticking out horizontally from the right-hand-side of the needle bar and that holds the needle securing screw. When the foot is down, you will see that the upwards motion of the needle bar raises the upper set of feed dogs on the walking foot - the whole purpose of the walking foot is to provide, effectively, a set of feed dogs on the top of the material as well as the toothed ones below the stitch plate - this allows multilayered or thick materials to be sewn as when doing quilting.

Do i need to drop the dog teeth when using the walking foot?


If you are quilting and using the walking foot than no. If you want to do stippling or "free motion" work than yes but with a different foot. A walking foot feed the material from the bottom and top at the same time....
