Sewing machine required with either a Walking Foot or Dual feed System. I recommend an open toed sole plate for maximum visibility. Have all your sewing machine feet handy. You never know what you might choose to use! If your machine comes with a hands-free system (knee lift) make sure to have it available, even if you don’t normally use it.
