This one is very handy. It is a small L-shaped foot with a slot on the bottom side. The bottom of the foot is higher at the front than the back. This causes the foot to rock when attached to the machine. This rocking creates the gathers. You set the stitch length at a higher setting to get more gathers and a normal setting to get less gathers. If you are gathering a single piece of fabric, feed the fabric under the foot or use the side slot to stitch one piece of fabric to another.

During a foot exam, a healthcare provider should check for poor circulation, nerve damage through nerve conduction tests, skin changes, and bony deformities. An examination should include tests to reveal different motor reflexes mediated through nerve and muscle coordination and tests to analyze the ability to sense pressure, vibration, pin pricks, and changes in temperature. Poor circulation —Some simple clues can point to circulatory problems. Poor pulses, cold feet, thin or blue skin, and lack of hair signal that the feet are not getting enough blood. Check your feet daily for cuts, blisters, bruises, color changes, swelling, in-grown toe nails and open sores. Use a mirror or ask for help.
