foot for Sewing Machine
The open toed foot is one of the most useful feet. Use it instead of the
standard zig-zag foot as it gives such a clear view of where the needle is about
to enter the knitting or fabric especially when using a zig-zag stitch. Accuracy
will be improved enormously simply because you can see where you are sewing. The
outside or inside edge of the foot can also be used as a guide. Further uses are
to be found in my book "Sewing Sampler".
It is an accessory available for most sewing machines. Generic and branded types
It has many uses. Some of the techniques I use it for include -
- Topstitching with a double needle.
- Zigzagging over one stitch (wale) or row of knitting before cutting,
during cut and sew.
- Stitching "in the ditch".
- Sewing on "flat" rouleau cords.
- Machine quilting along marked lines.
- Satin stitch appliqué.
To complement the feet I have produced an Open
Toed Feet Information Sheet. This is a 3 page collection of 14 illustrated
suggested uses for the Open Toed Foot.

Choosing the Correct Foot for your Machine
It is important to choose the correct foot and fitting for your brand/model
Both generic and branded open toed feet are available as clip on (with the ankle
if required), short shank, long shank or Bernina fittings. The following pages
take you through the steps needed to choose your foot. Start by choosing the
correct fitting from the Sewing Machine Feet Diagrams.
