Does the 4562 singer deluxe freearm electronic speed control 32 stitch function come with a freemotion foot and do the feeddogs drop?


Most machines include a "darning" foot, which is the equivalent of a free motion foot. However, there are multiple choices of free motion feet that can be purchased elsewhere which are made of various materials, in different shapes, and also with springs to create bounce--just something to consider, but not necessary.

Your machine should either have the ability to drop the feed dogs, or a cover plate that snaps over the feed dogs to prevent them from contacting the fabric when free motion quilting.

Your manual should have information as to what is included.

How do I avoid breaking a needle on a 26 foot beginning a free motion project after programing the foot choice and lowering the foot?


#26 is an embroidery foot. Why are you using an embroidery foot for free motion quilting? A #24 free motion embroidery foot will work but not the #26. Try using a darning foot that is just a smidgen shorter so there is space between it and the needleplate for you to freely move the fabric. (Adding a Supreme Slider sheet to the work surface of your machine helps make the fabric glide much smoother.) A standard presser foot is made to press the fabric against the feed dogs so the feed dogs will move the fabric. When free motion quilting, you would drop the feed dogs and move the material with your hands.

Depends which model Bernina you have (new or old style presser feet), which will work on your machine. There are also many generic darning/FMQ feet available that will work on your machine.

What darning foot will fit on a singer confidence 7463 for free motion quilting?


Yours is a low shank machine, and that is the most common type for newer machines of any manufacturer. eBay and Amazon both offer low-shank darning feet; I recommend the metal one with a metal large circular foot. That's my favorite, and I bought mine for $6.50 including shipping from eBay.

Which model are you using? Creative 4.5?, On the newer machines it drops automatically once the embroidery attachment is hooked up. On older Creatives v2.x there is a slide lever in front of the presser foot on the front.

I own the singer advance 7442 and want to lower the feed dogs in order to use a quilting foot to machine quilt.However I don't have my manual and I need to know how to lower my feed dogs.Can you help me...


The 7442 does not have feed dogs which can be dropped. You need to use the "Darning Plate" which came with the accessories.

I'm looking for a darning foot to use on my Quantum CXL so I can do free motion quilting. Is there one available?


You will have to remove the adapter for the clip on presser feet to use the darning foot - http://www.sewingmachinesplus.com/pd60-4021.php same as you would to use the walking foot.
