  1. I have an extended base for my Lucey and am using a 12" circle ruler. Everything works fine until I get to the bottom of the motif: at this point the hopping foot is in front of the ruler and I begin to get a wobble in the line. See picture for 2nd attempt; will be unstitching again. It seems the slanted back of the hopping foot is engaging somewhat with the circle ruler when the needle and foot are in the down position. It's the most awkward point of making the circle in terms of moving the machine and holding the ruler plus the ruler wants to get caught by the back of the foot shank. I'm using regulated stitch feature by the way. Do I need to freehand this spot in the circle? Use unregulated stitch mode very, very slowly with the ruler? I've looked at the other feet available and it appears they all have that slanted design. Hartley fence would be lovely.... but not in the budget. Any suggestions?
