What is Hover Mode?
Hover Mode is a feature on a sewing machine that will lift the foot of the sewing machine when you stop sewing. The foot will rise enough to allow you to turn or pivot your fabric to a new position. This can also be done with the knee lift.
Benefits of Hover Mode
Hover Mode is a feature on many sewing machines. It frees the hands of the sewist to allow them to keep sewing, rather than move the needle up and down by manipulating a lever behind the machine.
Tools Needed for Hover Mode
The Hover Mode feature is not on every machine; many but not all. Be sure to check to see if it is a feature on a machine you are considering purchasing.
What I wished I knew about Hover Mode
I was such a big fan of the knee lift feature that I didn't think I would be interested in the Hover Mode feature. However, I now use it even more than than the knee lift!
