Why Use The Walking foot
Here is what my Walking Foot for my machine looks like. You can usually buy a Walking Foot at any sewing supplies store and they usually run about $15 or so. Not a bad price for something so helpful!
The Walking Foot will keep layers of fabric feeding evenly and also helps to match plaids. The Walking Foot has an upper set of feed teeth that move the top layers of fabric at the same rate as the bottom layers.
The Walking Foot is great for materials that are stretchy or like to slip and slide while sewing. Minky is just one example... if you want to sew a project using Minky fabric, a Walking Foot will come in very handy and save you some stress.
