    Cover it. A business card works well. Cut a small hole for needle, tape to machine bed over feed dogs.

    I use to FMQ with my feed dogs up without a problem. It is just another choice.

    If you don't have a plate to cover your feed dogs that's ok, you don't have to drop your feed dogs, just set your stitch length to zero, this doesn't drop the feed dogs, but it does lower them, attach your darning foot, and go. Should work just fine.

    I also just put the stitch length to zero and don't cover them. Be sure to lower your presser foot!!!

    if you do cover, don't forget to make a hole for your needle!!
