Presser Foot Guides

Your eyes should always follow a guide on the machine or the foot, not the machine needle to achieve straight stitching. Take the time to practice on scraps of fabric to gain your comfort and confidence.

Look at your feet and find the lines or markings that you can use as a guide. The feet shown here are just two of many examples that could be used to show the many options on different feet for different machines.
