Questions about Sew Easy Guide

      • How do I decide which Sew Easy Guide is right for me?

        The Sew Easy Guide works on squares with sides from 1″ to 4″ (diagonal measurements up to 5 ½”). The Sew Easy Guide 2 works on squares with sides from 1″ to 7 ½” (diagonal measurements up to 10 ½”). If you only always work with smaller squares, choose the Sew Easy Guide. If you are unsure, choose the Sew Easy Guide 2. It can be trimmed with scissors to a shorter length if desired.

      • What is the best presser foot to use for the Sew Easy Guide?

        Use the widest presser foot you have that also has a smooth, flat (not grooved or open) underneath side. This is usually your multi-purpose foot, or zigzag foot. Walking feet, also called even-feed feet usually are not appropriate because they have grooves and other feeding mechanisms that are not compatible with the SEG. The way Pfaff’s built-in even feed works is compatible with the SEG; however you may have to cut out a small section of the SEG to allow clearance for the machine’s even-feed.

      • What can I do when the adhesive on my Sew Easy Guide wears out?

        Option 1: A temporary fix is to use Scotch double stick tape to re-tape the area where the Sew Easy Guide has adhesive. Remove the old adhesive as much as possible before you apply the new tape. Use a hole punch to make a hole for the needle. This option has had mixed results.

        Option 2: Use regular transparent tape to wrap around the SEG and the foot (you may want to do the wrapping with the foot off the machine). Use a hole punch or a knife (carefully!) to make a hole for the needle if you have covered the needle hole. This does not provide a lot of extra security, but sometimes a little extra tape security is all that is needed.

        Option 3: Buy another SEG. Even though we made it as sturdy as we could, it is in the category of notions that will wear out with use. Still, the cost of a new one is small compared to the time saved, the multiple uses, and the multiple size squares you can use it on!

        Option 4: Permanently attach the SEG to your presser foot using an appropriate glue, such as E6000; buy a second presser foot to do this with, so you always have one regular presser foot and one SEG foot ready to go.

      • Will the Sew Easy Guide Tutorial CD work on my DVD player?

        Maybe, maybe not. The CD is meant to work on your computer, but it does play in some DVD players, too. However, it is not guaranteed to play in DVD players.

      • Can I shorten the Sew Easy Guide?

        Yes, you can shorten the Sew Easy Guides. Use the curved end of the guide as a reference or template when shortening the guide. That is, make a curved cut (a straight cut would be more likely to snag on your fabric).
