|Place the cut-out of the Accu-Guide around the hopping foot. Hold it in position with the middle finger at the gentle dip-shape at the top and rest the thumb on the bottom edge. The guide creates pressure from the left and the right hand on the stop/go button provides pressure from the right side. This motion, effectively, gives you great control and steering ability of the hopping foot. It allows precise and accurate stitching around pre-printed items and applique pieces.|
|Flip the guide over and use the straight edge of the guide to follow straight lines on the fabric and/or piecing. Great for Stitch-In-The Ditch. The partial curve around the hopping foot gives extra control and stability.|
