Wonderful decorative embellishments are easily sewn with this special foot. Use the Twin Gimping Foot & a 1.6 twin needle to create three-dimensional satin stitches. Two gimp threads are guided by the foot as the stitch is sewn.
Please note: this does not fit Emerald 122,118 or 116 machines!
How to use the twin gimping foot:
Insert a 1.6 twin needle.
Thread with two spools of 40wt. rayon embroidery thread on top and embroidery bobbin fill or regular sewing thread in the bobbin. The threads can be the same colour, or two different colours.
Place the straight end of the guide into the hole at the top of the presser foot ankle. Tighten the screw (on some models) to hold the guide in place.
Thread the gimp threads into the curly-Q ends of the guide and insert gimp threads into the guides in the front of the foot and then bring back underneath and into the grooves on the bottom of the foot.
Snap on the presser foot.
Place the spools or lengths of gimp threads so they will feed smoothly into the foot as you sew.
Select a narrow satin stitch, set the length to 0.4-0.6mm and the width to 1.5mm. (On some machines; select a narrow and dense zigzag stitch)
Use a fabric marker pen and draw a design onto your fabric and sew over it. the design will be outlines in a three dimensional satin stitch. Use stabilizer as needed.
Tip: If applicable to your machine, put both thread spools in vertical position for a more even feeding of threads.
