Your sewing machine always comes with a regular sewing foot but did you know how to move your needle to be able to sew an accurate 1/4″?

Well Jennie gives you the details (and then you can test the result – check out our basics video on the subject)

BE AWARE that you need to have the correct foot on the machine i.e. the one with the big zig-zag space when you try this – otherwise the instant result will be a broken needle.
