The Baby Lock Walking Foot might also be known as a dual feed or even feed foot. The walking foot has a top set of feed dogs that will help feed the top layer of fabric while the machine feed dogs feed the lower layer of fabric. This foot works best with a straight stitch; however, it can be used with other forward feeding stitches. The walking foot is a great help when sewing fabrics that stretch or have a tendency to creep or slip like velvet, corduroy, or multiple layers of fabric that are layered with batting. Use your Baby Lock Walking Foot to attach bias tape and quilt binding to eliminate buckling and rippling when turning curves. Afraid to sew plaid fabrics because of the pinning and basting that needs to be done before you sew? Use the walking foot to help evenly feed both the top and bottom layers. Note: When sewing with the walking foot, sew at medium to low speeds.
