ok, i don't know where else to turn, I inherited a 555 from my niece, who has passed away. I have alot of feet, accessories, etc, BUT cannot get it to free motion quilt. I drop the feed dogs and when i start sewing they pop right back up. The accessory guides etc. say to choose a particular stitch from the "set" menu and i can't find a "set" menu. have prog, rep and norm on menu choices. what am i doing wrong? have been searching, to no avail, to find a video online.The Husqvarna Lily 555 is a personal favourite of mine especially for satin stitching and free motion quilting. This wonderful machine will stitch through anything I can force under the presser foot.
This is a open toe darning/free motion quilting foot.
Set the stitch length to zero, put the needle in the down position.
On this bib the design is jesters' hats. It is quick and fun to do.
Meander the design all over the quilt surface.
The tutorial for this bib is available here.
All finished and ready for gift giving.
Happy free motion quilting.
