The fabric is extremely slippery and difficult to control through the presser foot of a sewing machine.
A presser foot is an attachment used with sewing machines to hold fabric flat as it is fed through the machine and stitched.

Sewing machine owners can purchase various separate presser feet designed for specialized uses, such as:

The dogs are serrated to grip the material, and a "presser foot" is used to keep the material in contact with the dogs.
