Very well done. Your videos have always impressed me. Keep up the real work of teaching people to sew. Not just selling the goodies but what to do with them instead.

I recently purchased a walking foot and an embroidery foot. My manual does not show how to use or attach these optional accessories. Where can I find a tutorial please?
