The only problem I heard of from this sewing machine was that it is so light weight. They like the fact that it is light weight but it does not stay put on a working surface. Solving this problem was as easy as a roll of non-slip drawer liner that was purchased at the Dollar Tree for $1.
My machine came with a walking foot. I have never used one of these and always thought it was for quilting. Upon some investigation into sewing with knits I came across this blog Pretty Prudent with instructions on using a walking foot to keep stretchy knits from puckering when sewed. This blog was very helpful. As for the twin needle PRETTY PRUDENT talks about I had also seen it in Nancy Zieman's book 10-20-30 MINUTES TO SEW page 72-73.
After consulting my sewing machine manual to attach the walking foot correctly, I was ready to start sewing the knit top.
I completed the knit top as seen in the picture above. The walking foot worked great. With the twin needles it gives a regular stitch with a zigzag stitch underneath.
It was great on the tie detail of this top. I did thread the right needle wrong the first time. I can see the error on the top, wonder if you can?
Now to tackle more sewing projects. Hope you will also try the walking foot on some of your projects and check out The Prudent Pretty Blog with some very helpful instructions for sewing with knits.
