Walking foot. JUKI DU1181N

Walking foot machine. JUKi – DU1181N


This juki DU1181N is an ideal machine for stitching heavy materials such as denim and leather.



What is walking foot machine?

 

The walking foot sewing machine has a special mechanism for stitching fabrics/materials, unlike a normal sewing machine which only feeds with the bottom teeth, it feeds the material with both bottom teeth and walking foot. When the material is being stitched, the bottom teeth and foot will grab and release the fabric from both sides even when the needle is out of the fabric.

This method eliminates uneven fabric stitching and reduces puckering because all layers of the fabrics are fed consistently through the machine in one fluid motion.

This machine is absolutely a game changer if you make heavy garments such as denim pants or leather jacket. Also this model is relatively inexpensive so it’s perfect as your first walking foot sewing machine!

We’ve been dreaming about getting this keyhole buttonhole machine, now we finally got it!
Luckily one of the london based manufacturers was looking for a new home for this monster.

This machine is Reece 101, It’s also called “The Iron Duke”

It is a real vintage but still very popular among makers in the UK . I’ve never seen this one in Japan, Durkopp or Juki are more popular there.

The machine has some “This model only”special features which makes this model so popular.

– Stationery bed plate. Only the head travels around the buttonhole so the garment doesn’t move during stitching

– Handstitch imitation hole. With a top gimp attachment it gives the appearance of a hand-sewn buttonhole.

Also our machine has a “buttonhole counter” so you can see how many holes were made so far. It says 252 million!! Oh we love our “The iron dude” 🙂
