Raise the needle and presser foot, and position darning plate onto
the needle plate with the two pins on the back inserted to the holes on the needle plate.

I love my 3321 talent. my question is i want to free motion quilt. how do i lower the bottom feeder feet so i can more my fabric freely.

To use the Talent 3321 for free-motion sewing, you do not lower the feed dogs. Instead, put the darning plate over the feed dogs. This darning plate was among the original accessories included with the machine. If you need a replacement, one source is .

Most Singer Sewing machine manuals are available here: . The direct link to the manual for the Singer Talent 3321 is currently here: . The use of the darning plate is shown on page 37 (sewing on buttons) and page 46.

I hope this helps.

I did not get a button attachment, darning plate with my Singer model 3337. Where can I get one?

According to the owner's manual, those accessories should have been included with your machine's accessories. They are listed as "d" and "l" on page 10 of the manual. If you don't have them, you can probably order them through Singer.

Where is the feed dog switch on the singer athena 2009 sewing machine

I'm not able to find a reference to a feed dog switch for your machine.

Singer Athena 2000 Instructions Manual Page 9

Could possibly be accomplished using a special plate? The instructions do refer to a darning foot, so the machine should be able to deactivate the feed dogs.

Unfortunately, I haven't found a source for a replacement darning plate for the Amelia. I hope this helps.

I am trying to darn a hole for the first time. Can you tell me how to set the length of the stitch after I have pressed the reverse button

When you darn with a sewing machine, the operator regulates the stitch width and length by moving the fabric manually. The feed dogs are dropped below the needle plate (or covered with the needle plate cover in the accessory kit). A darning foot is attached to the machine. Then the operator manually moves the fabric back and forth and forward/backward while stitching.

How do I lower the feed dog on a Brother LX3125?

Look on the back of the machine near the feed dogs for a lever to lower them.
If there is none then you need a feed dog cover (or darning plate) that goes over the needle plate.
good luck!

What button do you press on the 415 to make the darning stitch work, all the manuals I have looked at have a typo that has hit a blank button

Darning is accomplished with the straight stitch in combination with the reverse button and the 'STOP' button. Reverse button is first on the left on display (looks like a fish hook) and the one used to sew backwards. The 'STOP' button is third from the left on the display.

Th e instructions are on page 37 or attached manual online
Happy Darning!

Can you drop the feed dogs on a rl425 brother sewing machine

The Brother RL-425 does not have a drop-down feed dog system. Instead, you need to put the darning plate over the needle plate. This covers the feed dogs. The plate is part of the original accessories supplied with the sewing machine. Some shops call this the feed dog cover in the parts catalog. If you need to replace the cover, here is one source: .

Positioning the darning plate is shown on several pages of the user manual. See the sections on sewing a button and darning. The manual is available here: . .

I hope this helps.

I am trying free motion quilting on my europro 7500 but fabric does not move freely even though I have attached the plate to cover the feed dog and the darning foot. Can you help. Am I missing another step

It sounds like you are doing as you should.

If the darning foot is not "springy" enough and is holding down too firmly, you might look for a "hopping" foot.

I use the Supreme Slider and gloves to help me better move the quilt.

Material will not move forward

Make sure the presser foot is coming all the way down. Check your stitch length setting too.
