Large M Class Bobbin

TruStitch Stitch Regulator

TruStitch™ Stitch Regulator (Optional)

Enjoy free-motion quilting at a comfortable pace with the TruStitch™ Stitch Regulator. The automated regulator helps you achieve evenly spaced, consistent stitches every time. Plus, while in use, you still have full view of your quilt—TruStitch™ remains out of the way. This easy-to-use stitch regulator is helpful for quilters of all skill levels.

Use the Table Overlay to prevent fabric from sticking during free-motion quilting. Pair the Table Overlay with the TruStitch Stitch Regulator to glide your fabric through consistent, even stitching.
