Hello Rhiannon! It appears that you would have to do a Zig-Zag stitch in order to sew with that zipper foot. I was unable to find any instructions on how to move your needle without changing the stitch. I am sorry I do not have more information for you. I hope this helps!

No using the zig-zag stitch won’t work. All the other parts in this set are fine – just not the zipper foot. I should have bought the Low Shank 15 Piece Foot Kit #5011-LBL.

I just bought the zipper foot, and can not figure out how to change the position of my needle. Can you help?

Sarah February 20, 2014 - 3:02 pm

Hi Robin! Usually you can change the needle position of a straight stitch by adjusting the stitch width. If that doesn’t work, we can try looking up your machine make and model to investigate further.
