I'm sewing a very fine poly jersey, and the fabric, as it feeds along the throatplate, is snagging on the edges of the sunk holes along the side that keep the screws holding the throatplate out of the fabric feed. Grrr!

But the ever-handy roll of painter's tape came to my rescue! A strip of it over the throat plate and pressed down really flat on the inside edge near the feed dogs has solved the problem, and it should (crossing fingers here) come off without leaving any residue behind.

Yes, great tip! I have been using painters tape on my machine for years and have never had a problem with residue.
