|I have been working on some projects lately that require precision sewing. My straight sewing foot has been useful, but I still have difficulty seeing the exact position of the needle on the fabric. Then last week I had an AHA! moment - use an open-toe applique foot. With this foot, which is available for many machines (I have one for each of my Viking and Pfaff machines, and I believe they are available for Kenmores, Berninas and Brothers), you can see exactly where your needle is going to be on the fabric. It makes sewing tricky areas much easier.
