This couching foot has been designed for use with Pfaff Sewing Machines in categories B, C, D, E, F, G, J, KL.

If your Pfaff sewing machine has the IDT system, you can engage this function to use with this foot.

Couching is a decorative type of sewing technique that involves sewing wool, cords, ribbons or threads on top of the fabric. This adds a bold and unusual look which is full of texture and visual interest, especially if you combine the colours of the strands you are using or contrast them with the threads you are stitching them in place with.

This couching foot has a special guide at the front. Simply pass your cords, wool, ribbons, threads, or even decorative trim through the circular gap, and it will hold them up and out of the way from your fabric, yet perfectly in line to be able to stitch them down centrally. This makes it especially useful if you are feeding your decorative cords from the side or above, and wanting to twist and turn your fabric more easily as you sew.

To use this sewing machine foot, unclip your current presser foot and lower your adaptor down until this foot snaps into position. You can use a straight stitch to hold ribbons or wider cords in place, but finer cords do better with zigzag stitches, or decorative stitches with some side-to-side movement (you may find very intricate stitches or those with lots of forwards and backwards movements don’t turn out as well, so you may want to check on some scraps first).

If you notice puckering or distortion of your fabric as you sew, you may need to add stabiliser underneath the fabric, hoop your fabric, or stiffen the fabric with starch (then wash out after). Aim to stitch slowly and consistently, especially when you are going around corners for the best results.

Because you can fit some really chunky fun wools and trims through the guide, this sewing machine foot is great fun for bold decorative projects like customising a hoodie, or a towel, or adding a machine embroidered front to a cushion or laptop sleeve. You can pass smaller trims through too, so why not mix and match and add even more fun!
