Difficult to be definitive without specific model information, but......
Generally a "walking foot" will suit this best, as it grips the work on both sides and moves it all through evenly, using an ordinary style foot may mean the layers of fabric and batting shift relative to each other and bunching uneven results will occur, even with careful ststegic pinning.......speak to the dealer for your brand and quote the model you have to ask if they can supply one to suit.
As a guide, a Janome walking foot in Australi is around $AUD 65 retail

NOTE: Not all machines are able to take these feet, especially older and low end models.

Can you use quilting bar with walying foot that came with si ger 9960


The info I found has no mention of the quilting bar for the Siinger 9960 walking foot. Most machine with that functionality include the quilting bar with the walking foot. There also needs to be a hole through the walking foot and a method to attach the bar to the foot which doesn't seem possible with what I located. However, you may be able to attach a bar or a guide of some sort using something like masking tape that can be used as a guide.

On a straight-line quilting tutorial I saw recently, the quilter laid down strips painter's tape to mark the lines on the quilt before doing any stitching. Then she simply stitched next to to painter's tape to get straight lines.

How can I machine quilt on the necchi 3204fb do I need special attachments


There are a lot of accessories available for free motion quilting. However, in reality, FMQ can be done with a darning foot (usually included with your machine). Of course, you can opt to purchase a multitude of FMQ presser feet for your machine, ie open darning foot, clear foot, hopping foot...plus many quilting rulers. The only other change is to drop the feed dogs. From there, it's just a lot of practice, practice, practice. It helps to practice drawing FMQ designs on something like a blackboard or whiteboard that can be erased and used multiple times. The idea is to get your movement smooth and consistent--muscle memory--like you used to do when learning how to write in grade school. It may also be helpful to have some gloves that will grip the fabric since your skin will become dry from constant contact with the fabric and begin to slip. There are special "quilting" gloves for $$ or you can try some cheap rubber gloves from the dollar store or rubber garden gloves.

Or, you can do straight line stitching with a walking foot, which is easier than FMQ. But you would need to purchase a walking foot for your machine.

Just search for free motion quilting. There are tons of web sites, videos, and classes.

How do I attach the quilting bar to the walking foot on my Simplicity Quilters Classic? The manual doesn't show how to do it


There should be a hole across the back of the walking foot (penetrates the walking foot usually from right to left, although some feet will have 2 guides--one for left to right, the other left to right) where the bar mounts and a screw to tighten and hold it in place.

Quilting and patchwork foot with attached shank


Probably, but since we don't know the model, we can't help you much.

You can search the internet for your make and model machine and search for a 1/4" presser foot. You'll most likely find one piece presser feet or even snap-on feet where you purchase the shank adapter and then separate presser feet that attach to the shank.

You can also check with your local Pfaff dealer.

I have just started learning how to quilt and I was told I needed a walking foot to quilt the sandwich together. I purchased one today, but I don't even know how to attach the foot. I also need to...


The foot is attached as normal, but when you're attaching it, the fork-shaped part that sticks out of the right-hand-side has to be hooked around the round pillar sticking out horizontally from the right-hand-side of the needle bar and that holds the needle securing screw. When the foot is down, you will see that the upwards motion of the needle bar raises the upper set of feed dogs on the walking foot - the whole purpose of the walking foot is to provide, effectively, a set of feed dogs on the top of the material as well as the toothed ones below the stitch plate - this allows multilayered or thick materials to be sewn as when doing quilting.

Hello where can i get a quilting foot for a singer


I find ebay great for small specialised items.
http://shop.ebay.com/?_from=R40&_trksid=p5197.m570.l1313&_nkw=singer+quilting+foot&_sacat=See-All-Categories
If you are in the USA try www.ebay.com, if you are in the UK then it's www.ebay.co.uk and in Australia I think is www.ebay.com/au Just do a search for singer quilting foot and you should find one that suits you. You can organise your search by price etc so it finds the cheapest one available.
Hope this helps!

How to attach a quilt guide


You have to unscrew the screw for the presser foot first. The walking foot will then fit. Use the same screw to attach the walking foot. Before you insert the screw, take the white handle on the walking foot and slide it on the screw arm for the needle. Now tighten the screw.

I WOULD LIKE TO TRY MACHINE QUILTING WITH MY ROSE MACHINE. DO I NEED A SPECIAL FOOT ATTACHMENT OR COMPUTER CARD?


If you want to piece quilts, I recommend a 1/4" piecing foot. Husqvarna make several different types that may be used on the Rose.
If you want a dual feed or walking foot, check out the new Interchangeable Dual Feed foot.
You only use card with the Rose for embroidery, which you can do on a quilt, but not necessary.
