SOURCE: How do I attach a walking foot

Okay let's get started.

  • First let's look at the walking foot.
  • Turn the bulky body so that it's away from you.
  • On the left you see a groove that is going to be where you attach the foot to your machine.
  • On the right is a u-shaped arm which you can move up and down. It will go over the needle clamp
Now, let's remove your present foot from the machine and look at it.
  • Loosen the foot screw until it almost comes off. (if it does come off, screw it back on a bit.) The screw is on the left of the foot-bar.
  • On the right you'll see the needle bar with a needle clamp (what you tighten when you replace a needle) on the right of the needle-bar.
Okay the walking foot business.
  • slide the walking foot into position so that the foot screw is in the slot on the right and the u-shaped arm is over the needle clamp, with the needle clamp in the middle of the u-shaped opening.
  • Tighten the foot screw securely, it's going to be under more strain than normal.
  • While you're at it, check that the needle-clamp is nice and tight as well.
Okay, then! There you go... Happy sewing.
Are you happy? Than please vote

Here are a few helpful pictures.

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.

Beckster, it may simply be that the walking foot needs to be tweeked a bit, perhaps screwed in further, or less.
If that doesn't help ...

Is this a Janome MemoryCraft 9000? (I ask because the models seem to get mixed up in the threads)

If so, you can more than likely find accessories for the MC9000 either on eBay, your local Janome dealer (you can find the closest one to you @ Janome's website using the "Dealer Locator" feature) or even ... SEARS!

Sears contracted Janome to make several of their sewing machines (I think Janome might still be the actual manufacturer, but aren't 100% sure) and so the parts are compatible. You can even use a Kenmore Memory Card with a Janome MC9000.

As for oiling, if it's the MC9000 (much like practically all newer models) they don't need oiling. Though sometimes, you can dab a teeny-tiny amount of oil on the bobbin case if it needs it.

When using the walking foot how does the guide work?


Yes, you would set the guide at the distance you want the next row to appear. Set the guide to follow the previous row and then stitch with the walking foot to create the new row.

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.

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.
What is Walking Foot Sewing Tips for Beginners
How To Use Walking Foot
How to Use Roller Foot

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.)

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.

Machine quilting


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.
