I have a foot fetish. And, no, not THAT kind of foot fetish! I love my sewing machine feet! There are so many kinds that can do so many things; and they all make sewing and quilting easier.
When I first started sewing, I used a 1967 Singer Touch and Sew. I sewed in straight lines while I made curtains, pillows, and purses. That all changed when I bought my first brand new sewing machine - a Janome 6260 QC - and took my first owner's class. We got out the cording foot and, as my instructor started to demonstrate, I exclaimed, "I never knew this type of sewing existed!" Sewing suddenly went from utility to art.
I spend a lot of time talking about feet, hence my fetish. But when you know your feet, your skills improve and your project look less home made. So why not learn a little about your feet?
So, on Monday we'll be looking at the cording foot.
