Hi!  I recently started sewing on a Pfaff 1475 CD and it was working well, but now the pressure on the presser foot is too strong.  The fabric can't flow and it gets all bunched up.  I don't know how it came to be this way or how to adjust it back.  I've looked in the manual, but don't see anything about adjusting the pressure of the foot.  Is there anyway to lighten the force of the foot? 

Thanks so much!

There are low pressure feet available, they sit slightly higher and are used on machines that are used for quilting but don't have an adjustable bar.

To me it sounds like your tension is too tight.

Try reducing the tension. There should be a tension wheel on your machine. Your thread will run through it.
Check your manual if you are unsure.
