Question about Sewing Machines
I have a new Pfaff 2058 and am new to the line of Pfaffs and I am having problems with the IDT foot bunching up the fabric when I start a seam. Is it possible pilot error or should I have it looked at. Thanks
Hi Gramma Rosie,
The bunching up of fabric is due to either:
1. Obstruction in front where the fabric has to move forward (in which case you should tug a bit on the front end of the fabric as it goes ahead.)
2. The pressure foot (that pinches the fabric between the advancer teeth and itself), is either too loose or too tight. (It depends on how thick is the fabric and how many layers of fabric are you trying to pas between the IDT foot and advancer teeth) For that you need to tighten or loosen the rotary bolt on top. Its generally connected to the foot like a shock absorber having a high tension spring.
3. The fabric advancer teeth are not moving sufficiently. This you need to rectify by adjusting the up-down lever at the right that is rsponsible for fast & slow advancing of the cloth & accordingly the stitches will be longer or shorter.
I don't think it should be too much of a task for you to solve.
Good luck Rosie.
