Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2008/053558
Kind Code:
A1
Abstract:
A sewing machine foot has a foot mounting part (44) secured to a pressing bar (14), a pressing part (46) for pressing an article to be sewed when a needle (12) pierces the article, a swing arm (47) having an element guide groove (42) for guiding an element row (9) of a slide fastener (8) inserted in the groove, supported on the foot mounting part (44) so as to be swingable relative to the foot mounting part (44), and swinging in a vertical plane in parallel with a sewing line (28) during sewing, and biasing means (52) disposed between the foot mounting part (44) and the swing arm (47) and biasing the swing arm (47) relative to the foot mounting part (44) toward the article to be sewed. The construction enables the element row (9) of the slide fastener (8) to be guided both when the needle (12) pierces the article and when the needle forms a seam, and as a result, thick fabric (6) and a hidden slide fastener (8) which are difficult to sew to each other can be accurately positioned and sewn.
