Sewing With Nancy Fancy Footworks 2 by Nancy Zieman

If you enjoy the first release of a movie, nine chances out of ten you’ll like the sequel. That’s what I’m counting on happening with Fancy Footworks 2! Over six years ago, the first release of this not-ready-for-the-big-screen series aired. The response was extremely positive. Starting with this episode, I’ll showcase four additional presser feet.

The first feature is the Invisible Zipper Foot. It was designed to do one thing and do that process well, namely to use when inserting an invisible zipper. In this TV show, I break down the process in a few simple steps.

The Roller Foot is the second feature, for smooth sailing over varied thicknesses of fabric, stitching napped fabrics, or sewing on tacky surfaces. See the Roller Foot in action  gliding over fabric, alleviating the “pushing” on the underside of the foot with the “biting” of the fabric by the feed dogs. The Roller Foot also works great when making Thread & Trim Pizza. Tune in to learn the recipe.

Next up is the Walking Foot. My third feature makes the edges of a seam meet perfectly. Or, quilt multiple layers without shifting when using a Walking Foot. It’s a hard-working presser foot that most sewing and quilting enthusiasts shouldn’t be without.

The fourth and final feature in part one of Fancy Footworks 2, is the Satinedge™ Foot. When a satin edge or appliquéd edge is next on your sewing agenda, use the Stainedge™ Foot. Designed with an even zigzag stitch in mind, this specialty foot provides a uniform stitch, ideal for finishing edges.
