Please know how your machine works and make sure it is in good working order before class. For thread painting you will need to know how to drop the feed dogs, how to adjust your machine for free-motion machine, how to change the upper tension and know where to change the width on the zigzag stitch. If you are unsure of these machine adjustments, please check with your machine dealer before class. A solid sewing platform is recommended. You will need a zigzag throat plate, and don’t forget your sewing machine manual.
Thanks for checking this out before class.
Open toe free motion foot. It is important to see what you are stitching and where the next stitches are going so select the best foot you can for visibility. Check with your machine dealer for optional free motion feet. Embroidery or extra bobbin case (only if you have one)
