We recommend this belt over a lug belt or V belt because it stretches, so if your measurement was off, it will still work. They grip better and provide better traction with less slipping. If your machine uses a geared belt, you have to use the exact belt made for your specific model.

This is a question that I get asked a lot! As a quilt instructor and shop employee, I meet many people that are ready to purchase a new machine or upgrade their old one. I am also exposed to many different sewing machines in my classes, and I learn how to set them up for quilt specific techniques such as piecing, free motion quilting and applique.
