Why would you want to do free-motion quilting with this machine when you can find a Singer 15-90/91 that is known to do a better job and with greater ease of FMQ?Originally Posted by lovelyl
Don't mean to scare you off of what you wish to do.
I have a Singer 328K in treadle. Some folks questioned why I wanted to do it. First, I wanted to see it done, the set up.
Second, for decorative stitching. I finish off my bindings with decorative stitching and I wanted to do this with a vintage machine in treadle.
I don't think the feed dogs drop with this machine. I never studied the machine to see if it could be done since that wasn't my interest or goal. I think you have to cover the feed dogs with a special plate- but then I could be wrong with this.
I own Singer 15-90 and Singer 201, both in treadles, that I have FMQ with both, and I will only FMQ with my Singer 15.
If your goal is to FMQ, go find a Singer 15-90 to use-plenty of them around to rescue.
