    I finally found the instructions in the manual. It says I can use it for forward and zig zag stitches. I'm going to try it on a scrap for a simple decorative stitch that doesn't have any backward stitching. I have a Brother ES600, nothing fancy but it does almost everything I need. I do wish it did embroidery though.

    Thanks everyone for your input. Everyone is so helpful here.

    I had a machine like that once and did more embroidery on it than I do now with a fancier machine. You should look into Free Motion Embroidery. All you need for that is to drop (or cover) your feed dogs and use a zig-zag stitch. That is still my preferred method of embroidery. It takes a little practice like FMQ but is similar in process. If you can't find any information give me a PM and I'll help find some.
