When I sewed over seams that faced the machine, many of them turned and I ended up sewing them in the direction opposite of what I intended. I made a bridge of transparent tape from the edge of my sewing machine to the feed dogs and it solved the problem. The tape is smooth and slippery and the seams slide right along without bending backward.
