Some walking feet have a fork and some have a bar.

The fork fits around the needle set screw and the foot with the bar sits on top of the needle set 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.

Can i use a walking foot to make a buttonhole on my 320 alna sewing machine


I don't see any reason to use a walking foot for sewing a buttonhole. The purpose of a walking foot is to move the top and bottom fabrics together. Feed dogs sometimes tend to move the lower fabric faster than the top fabric--a walking foot helps prevent that.

If you don't have a buttonhole foot for your machine, you can still stitch a buttonhole using a different presser foot.

Walking foot not walking.


Most people don't realize that the moving parts of a walking foot could use some periodic lube. Take the foot off and manipulate it with your fingers and see where metal parts move against metal parts and apply a small drop of good quality sewing machine oil or Tri-Flow Synthetic Lube (if you have it). Make sure to wipe off any excess oil and test it again on a piece of scrap fabric.

If oil doesn't help, it could be that the walking foot has been damaged.

HV sapphire 930 not feeding properly


When stitching together a quilt sandwich, it is recommended to use a walking foot on your machine. The walking foot moves the upper fabric in conjunction with the feed dogs. Sometimes, if the quilt sandwich is not too thick, a roller foot can also help but may not be sufficient for a quilt sandwich.

You may also check the presser foot pressure on your machine. This regulates the amount of pressure the presser foot applies to the fabric and the feed dogs. If the pressure is too strong, it will tend to push the upper layers of fabric, creating a bubble look. If the pressure is too loose, there is not enough pressure for the feed dogs to physically pull entire quilt sandwich under the presser foot.
(The pressure is adjustable depending on the types of fabric and thicknesses being sewn.)

How can I get my Bernina 750 to feed the top and bootom fabric pieces for quilts evenly


Try using a walking foot. The issue most quilters face when working with any sewing machine is that there is a force being applied to move the bottom fabric but the top fabric is only moving based on friction with the bottom fabric. This can cause the bottom fabric to move quicker than the top. A walking foot helps solve this issue by placing a second set of feed dogs on the top of the fabric to mirror the force being applied on the bottom, allowing both pieces of fabric to move evenly.

Hope that helps!

What is a walkimg foot machine


A walking foot is a foot with feed dogs, or a similar fabric moving mechanism. This is useful when there are many layers of fabric or slick fabric. Then the top layer of fabric can be made to travel at the same rate as the lowest layer (the feed dogs) or an slightly different rate. Then the fabric layers will stay even for the entire length of the seam.

A walking foot sewing machine has this feature built in. Thus you don't need to adjust extra hardware to keep your fabric aligned. (On some, specific feet are needed to use the feature. However, it is easier to adjust than the separate walking foot that I have for my older Singer sewing machine.)

I hope this helps.

I hav e Bernina 1150. When I attach the walking


Hi, when you quilt straight lines using the walking foot, you need the feed dogs up, to move the fabric in a straight direction under the needle. When you do free motion quilting, which is done with a darning foot, your hands move the fabric in many different directions. Since you want to be the one to move the fabric, you put the feed dogs down and you do the work. So when you use the walking foot, keep your feed dogs up. When you use the darning foot, feed dogs down.

How do you fit and use a quilters foot


The 1600-DB requires a special Walking or Even Feed Foot due to the high sewing speed, so ensure that you have the correct foot, as the "normal" top loading machine foot will not fit.

I hope these images will assist in showing how the fitting should look.


This is the Normal - WRONG - foot to compare:

This is the CORRECT Foot:


aba188b.jpg



From the Janome Accessories Guide:


"The even feed foot walks over fabric to assist with smooth feeding. Fabric can be sewn without puckering as the fabric is gripped and fed by both the upper and lower feed dogs. This foot has been specially designed for durability and to work at the high speeds of the 1600 series.


Part Number - 767-403-016"
