I would love a demonstration of how to set up the sewing machine to be able to use the different accessory feet properly and proficiently. I have several different feet but have no idea how to use them proficiently. For instance, using the gathering foot that gathers the top fabric as you sew it to the bottom fabric (which does not gather). Each time I use it the fabric slides away from each other causing uneven seams. Also, a demonstration or chart on said foot of how to adjust the machine tension and/or stitching length. I don’t know, when trying to gather material, what to set the length or tension for the length of gathered material. I understand I’m not making any sense, so I will try to explain. I have 36" fabric but need to gather it to fit around an 18" doll waist which would be approximately 12-13". What stitch length or tension do I set the machine to get the exact gathered length that I need?
