Walking Foot

You've heard it all before and if you're like me, I've always wondered what it is. It seems to be something that is so clever and powerful. The sewing dictionary at Sewing Web defines a walking foot as:

"An attachment for your sewing machine that enables smoother sewing when using several layers or fabric. It provides an extra bit of hold from the top that works with the feed dogs below the fabric, pushing the fabric during the sewing process. It "walks" the fabric. It also works well with slippery fabrics that may need control not available with the feed dogs only."

This nifty gadget for your sewing machine works wonders and I just love it! Whether you're sewing thick or thin fabrics, it just makes it a breeze. Indeed, it "walks" the fabric. Thank God for walking feet!
