i have a 1938 featherweight. I want to FMQ, but the foot is pressing down to hard to allow the material to freely flow...and the feed dogs are up. Anyone know how to either drop the feed dogs or make the foot not press so hard?
I haven't been able to do FMQ on my Featherweight, but there are plates that attach to the bed of the machine to cover the feed dogs, and special presser feet that spring up and down to allow you to move the fabric freely. Try looking online for these parts. Good luck!
