Can you use the #10 foot with a decorative stitch?

TIA,

jan

If the decorative stitch doesn't cross over the blade maybe....BUT a good decorative stitch foot is tunneled underneath so that it doesn't interfere with the stitches passing through the foot

The bar on #10 doesn't go the whole way back-would it still be an

issue? It's the #5, blind stitch, where the bar goes the whole way back. >

The biggest problem is that if the foot is not tunneled, the stitches have a tendancy to drag and distort as they pass out of the machine.

While we're on the subject-how about decorative stitches with a walking

foot? Same thing with it not being tunneled?

That is how we were taught to do quilting in the beginner's class I

took.

Jan, back when I had a 1090QE I did not mind using my walking foot. It was small, as in

5mm and it was not one size fits all. I loved it. This one on my 440 is way too wide! I really

hate it, but I do use it for binding. I am sure it is better on a 640 or a 730 but certainly over

kill on my machine.
