OPEN TOE FREE MOTION SPRING FOOT (Spring action)
Compatibility for group: 5 6 7
Not for sewing machines:
EMERALD™ 122, 118 and 116 machines,
EDEN ROSE™ 250M, TRIBUTE™ 140M.
The Open Toe Free Motion Spring Foot gives clear visibility when
doing free motion quilting or embroidery. Because of the open
front, you can easily do stippling or follow a design in the fabric.
The spring action keeps the fabric from lifting with the needle as
the stitch is being formed which helps eliminate thread breakage
with specialty or heavier threads. Be sure to use the appropriate
needle for the thread you are using.
For Sapphire series, select Free Motion Spring Action on the Set Menu. For DESIGNER™
series, select Sensor Q Foot on the Set Menu.
1. Remove the ankle and put on the Open Toe Free Motion Spring Foot.
2. Bring the bobbin thread to the top by taking one stitch.
3. Lower the presser foot.
4. Sew, moving the fabric as desired to quilt the fabric, or create a free motion design. Move
the fabric in a smooth motion, moving the fabric faster as the speed of the machine is
increased. You are creating the length of the stitch as you move the fabric.
