SOURCE: stitches

Usually a walking foot is for straight forward stitching only.It keeps the many layers from shifting for you. The "hand-look" quilting takes a couple stitches forward then one back. If you look close, you will see about every other stitch is thicker and stands out more.

You have to unscrew the presser foot, then attach the WF, using the same screw.

Make sure the lever on the WF rests on top of the needle bar clamp.

Some WF have a two prong lever and this fits around the needle clamp like a lobster claw.

SOURCE: I bought a walking foot

I think it depends on your shank and everything I see on your model says low shank not high. I would double check that, a vertical is one that the bobbin does not just drop in, you open the front & take out the case and put your bobbin in and a horizontal is the one that you just open the the plastic slide on top of your machine and put it in. Take your manual in with you to Sears and let them help you get the right one.

HV sapphire 930 not feeding properly

When stitching together a quilt sandwich, it is recommended to use a walking foot on your machine. The walking foot moves the upper fabric in conjunction with the feed dogs. Sometimes, if the quilt sandwich is not too thick, a roller foot can also help but may not be sufficient for a quilt sandwich.

You may also check the presser foot pressure on your machine. This regulates the amount of pressure the presser foot applies to the fabric and the feed dogs. If the pressure is too strong, it will tend to push the upper layers of fabric, creating a bubble look. If the pressure is too loose, there is not enough pressure for the feed dogs to physically pull entire quilt sandwich under the presser foot.
(The pressure is adjustable depending on the types of fabric and thicknesses being sewn.)

Why doesn't walking mechanism work?

if the pressor foot anvil doesn't move up and down /back/forth , the machine might be in "DARNING " mode this is usually a small button in the bobbin area , but some machines have them on the back of cabinet as well

I have a Sears Kenmore sewing machine I want to get a 1/4 in presser foot for it, is there one and where would I get it/

You first need to determine which shank the presser foot uses on your machine. You can compare your shank (current presser foot) with these photos to see which one your machine uses.

NOTE: If you purchase a snap-on presser foot, you will also have to buy a "shank adapter" that will attach the presser foot to the needlebar. Here are some pictures of snap-on adapters:
Kenmore sewing machine snap on adapter Google Search
However, you will still need to make sure to buy the correct adapter for your machine. The GREAT thing about buying a snap-on adapter is you can add a lot of presser feet to your sewing machine accessories because you can purchase additional snap-on presser feet or even a complete set of snap-on feet that will all work with your adapter and your machine!!!

You will just snap one foot off and snap another on!!! Great idea!!!

OR--you can take your current presser foot along with the make & model of your machine and check with the local sewing repair shops to see if they have what you need.

FYI, once you know what shank your machine has, you can probably also find other specialty feet for your machine, ie walking foot, free-motion foot, etc.

How can I find accessories for an old machine?

Sewing shops are loaded with this stuff. You can order online too. You'll need the make & model number. Do a little research, I think Kenmores are simply repackaged Singers.

What foot should i use for quilting. i have a brother vx-1435

Your best option will be a "walking" or "even feed" foot. Your Brother dealer should have them in stock.

I would like to know which foot attachment you use on stretch fabric

You would normally use your standard sewing foot, or usually called your "zig-zag foot" for sewing on stretch fabric, just as you would woven fabric. Or, you can buy a "walking foot" sometimes called an "even feed" foot that will help the top and bottom layers to feed more evenly together. If your model has an adjustable presser foot tension, (adjusts the "drop" strength of your foot that you will feel when you raise and lower the presser foot lever) you may want to decrease it some, and test a scrap to see how well it feeds the particular fabric you want to use.
You can also use an "over-edge foot" with certain utility stitches to give a 1/4 inch seam that looks similar to a serged seam.
You may want to find a book (I like to borrow them from my library) that shows various sewing machine feet and what they can be used for.
Don't forget to use ball point sewing machine needles for stretch fabrics. Good luck with your project!

Almost all home sewing machines are a fixed presser foot type - the cloth is fed by the serrated ratchets on the bed under it. Expensive walking-foot sewing machines do have a walking foot in addition to the lower serrations. Those usually start at $1000and up.
