Then, Amy will take you on a tour of different specialty feet that can make your sewing more efficient and professional.
You’ll even learn to troubleshoot issues like thread breakage, tension problems, skipped stitches, uneven stitches, fabric that won’t move, and more! Plus, you’ll master cleaning and oiling your machine so you can keep it running like new.
