    you could tape a file card- or credit card (one of those free-b's that come in the mail ---over them- or you can purchase a silicone slider to use over them- but i would think a file box card would work fairly well- much better than just tape-
    Probably right. Who knows she may have told me to use a card and put it on with masking tape. LOL!

    If you set the stitch length at or near "0," you don't have to cover the feed dogs. Some people prefer to do FMQ with the feed dogs up - they think they have more control than with the feed dogs down.

    You might find that covering the feed dogs with a credit card results in more skipped stitches or broken needle threads, so give it a try without covering them, first. You might like it. :)
