An Invisible Zipper Foot, a Walking Foot, a Roller Foot, a Satinedge™ Foot, a Teflon Foot . . . when to use/how to use? Ever have those questions? You’re not alone. During the 3-part Sewing With Nancy series on Fancy Footworks 2, I take you through the process of identifying feet and how to use them.
For the next three weeks, the episodes from this 3-part series will be the featured Sewing With Nancy online videos. Click here to watch the first, second, and third episodes.
First, 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
For smooth sailing over varied thicknesses of fabric, stitching napped fabrics, and sewing on tacky surfaces, use the Roller Foot. See it in action gliding over fabric, alleviating the “pushing” on the underside of the foot as the feed dogs “bite” the fabric. The Roller Foot also works great when making Thread & Trim Pizza. Tune in to learn the recipe.
The Walking Foot
My third featured foot makes the edges of a seam meet perfectly. Or, quilt multiple layers of fabric 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 Satinedge™ Foot
When a satin edge or appliquéd edge is next on your sewing agenda, use the Satinedge™ Foot. Designed with an even zigzag stitch in mind, this specialty foot provides a uniform stitch, ideal for finishing edges.
The random winner, from my blogs on Part 1 and Part 2 regarding Sew Techie Covers, is Patty Foster. Her comment was: I need to design a cover for my Nook. Since my passion is reading, maybe books or words. So many options.
