Adjustable Presser Foot Pressure

The presser foot pressure on the Virtuosa 160 is adjustable, allowing you to make precise, accurate stitches on a variety of fabrics. This feature is especially important when working with delicate fabrics like silk or lightweight cotton, where too much pressure can cause the fabric to pucker. With the ability to adjust the pressure, you can ensure that your stitches are always smooth and even.
