One of the mysteries of the English language finally explained.
The mechanism in a sewing machine which feeds the material under the needle.
- ‘The trapezoid feeding system applies a four-motion rectangular path of movement for the feed dog, instead of the traditional elliptical motion.’
- ‘The ability to drop the feed dogs on your sewing machine and maneuver the fabric in any direction makes it easier to stitch a trapunto design.’
- ‘Use a tear-away, wash-away or tissue paper stabilizer underneath so the feed dogs aren't grabbing ‘air’; remove the stabilizer after sewing.’
- ‘After edgestitching all the appliqués, set up the machine for free-motion stitching: Drop or cover the feed dogs, change to a darning or embroidery foot, and reduce the presser-foot pressure.’
- ‘The foot needn't be specifically made for your machine, as long as it will properly attach to the machine and is centered over the feed dogs for even fabric feeding.’
