Couching with sewing machines
Cords and narrow ribbons can also be sewn on without the embroidery module, i.e. freehand. To do this, you will need the Free-Motion Couching Foot #43, a suitable wool thread and a size 80 needle.
The yarn should be able to slide easily through the foot, cords with a diameter of 1.5 - 2 mm are suitable. The yarn should not be too tight, nor should it stretch too much. Thread the machine with sewing or embroidery thread in the same color as the cord or a transparent monofilament thread. Always pull the thread through the additional cord guide, then through the guide and the stitch hole in the presser foot. When embroidering, make sure that the cord is guided loosely.
