How do I lower the feed dogs on my sewing machine?

I would like to try free motion embroidery/stitching, and I know that in order to do so, I need to lower the feed dogs on my sewing machine. How do I this? Is this a permanent thing, or is there a way to adjust them up and down so I can go from free motion to regular sewing? If it matters, this is the machine... show more I would like to try free motion embroidery/stitching, and I know that in order to do so, I need to lower the feed dogs on my sewing machine.

I didn't see anything in the user's manual that showed how to do this. "Feed dogs" weren't even in the index, actually.

Thanks in advance!
