  1. LumpenDoodle2 it ended up being my outer presser foot...it came with my machine. It had the right toe sawed off...which is what I needed..but there was extra metal not ground off that was causing the inner foot to move to the right as it went up to the section.
  2. Thank you for your response! I actually figured out the problem after a while. I took my outer foot off and noticed that the movement of the inner foot to the right stopped! I looked at the outer foot (looks like it was fabricated some how by whoever lol) had a section of metal that stuck out. So, as the inner foot got to that section it had no choice but to follow and move to the right! Sooo I got a metal file and sanded it off...voila!! No more movement to the right and I can finally so straight edges without a guide. I've had this machine for almost a year and have been at my wits end trying to sew straight by going at an angle....simple fix!
  3. Hello everyone. This is my first post and I'm having a problem. I have a consew 227 r. My machine moves my material to the right and it's causing it to be impossible to see straight edges without an edge guide. After some inspection....I see that my inner presser foot starts off in the right position, but once it gets a second from its lowest point..it moves to the right and when it gets back to the highest point it moves back to the center where it should be. At first I thought the feed dog was moving it...but it does it even when it isn't able to contact the feed dog. Any advice on what's going on?
