A must-have for free motion quilting. It took me a while to work out how to install this properly (there are lots of well-meaning youtube videos but none of them correct) and it drove me slightly mad. I have researched the Pfaff website in conjunction with the manual and the following applies to a Select 3.2:
1. Make sure you've snapped off the last foot used;
2. Place the needle in its highest position and raise the presser foot lever to its highest position;
3. Loosen the screw at the back of the foot/needle shaft;
4. Between your right thumb and forefinger squeeze the long clear plastic shaft in the front of the foot together with the black plastic back of the foot so that there is no resistance remaining;
5. Slip the shaft at the back of the foot into the hole that appeared when you loosened the screw. The black plastic clamp on the top of the foot will clip into place around the foot/needle shaft. Tighten the screw to secure;
6. Take hold of the lever that raises/lowers the foot (it should still be in its highest position). Push the foot downwards applying a backward pressure at the same time. Around halfway down the lever will slot into a resting place. Leave the lever there while using the free motion foot. Do NOT raise/lower the presser foot while free motion sewing, there is no need;
7. Lower the feed dogs (open the front flap and slide along the switch next to the bobbin case;
8. Set the upper thread tension to between 2 and 3;
9. Place the fabric/quilt under the foot. Stitch a couple of stitches and pull the bobbin thread through to the top of your work. Cut both threads close to the fabric.
10. Keep your foot pedal speed consistent but not too slow -a slow speed will make the stitches too big and unsightly.
