Embroidery Feet

Sometimes called "appliqué" feet, they are particularly suited for decorative stitching. The bottom of the foot has a wedge shaped indentation which allows even satin stitching to glide under the foot without dragging. The angle in the indentation makes it possible to turn curves easily. It is available with open toe and clear feet. The toes of the foot are shorter, compared to a regular zigzag foot, for greater maneuverability while sewing.

Melody’s Tip: The metal and transparent feet work well with lighter weight fabrics, the bridge of the foot provides additional fabric control and helps prevent tunneling.
