    Doing the yard sale thing Friday and open a case to see this. She wanted $3.00 for it and said it worked. Well, ok if it doesn't work hubby said he could play with taking it apart for $3.00. Well he does not get to take it apart!!! It sews a really nice straight stitch. Would like to know if anyone can help me understand the "Darn Knob" at the bottom? Would anyone have a manual or know anything about this. It is a Pacesetter XL700. I have googled and am not having any luck. Help appreciated!

    Just wondering what the feed dogs do when you turn the knob to "darn". Do they drop down? Like what you would want them to do for free motion quilting?

    does the darn knob affect the feed dogs? My thought is that perhaps it lowers them so that you can move the fabric and concentrate the stitches along where you are darning?

    The Darn setting is for free motion. Love the machine. What a deal!

    Like everyone says, it's to raise and lower your feed dogs.

    Lucky you to find a machine that runs for $3.00. I agree with the others, I bet the feed dogs drop when you turn the knob to darn. Have fun with your new acquisition.
