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.

    Whoops! I didn't see your additional comment! Sorry!

    I still stand by the suggestion of either trying eBay or your local dealer. For the walking foot, depending on what kind of shank you have (I'm sorry, I don't have a Husqvarna, so I don't know), you can buy a generic WF online or at your local dealer (they usually carry oodles of "generics").

    If the Husqvarna's a newer model, I really doubt that it needs oiling at all -- except in the instance that I mentioned before.

I had a 6370 model (a variation of the 2000 series models) and it did not need oiling. A small bit of vaseline (petroleum jelly) rubbed onto the shaft in the bobbin case occasionally to stop excessive noise was all it required. As for the walking foot - it was very hard to find years ago, so I doubt you would find one on eBay but sure worth a try. I am not confident that generic ones would fit.

Does the singer 533 have either a walking foot, a patchwork foot, or a quilting foot


You should be able to find some, if not all, of the presser feet you mention. You just need to determine what shank your machine has and make sure the presser feet you purchase have that same shank. (You may even have a snap-on adapter for your machine, so you just need to order the snap-on feet you want.)

Can the presser foot be raised slightly on pfaff tiptronic 2030 to facilitate free motion quilting? There is not enough clearance with feed dogs down to freely move material to quilt. Thank you.


You need a special foot for free motion quilting--it is slightly shorter in height than a regular presser foot, which essentially provides space between the presser foot and the needle plate to manually move the fabric. Sometimes machines came with a standard darning foot accessory. Your Pfaff dealer probably has at least one style in stock. But there are other specialty feet you can probably use, ie Big Foot, clear free motion foot, C-shaped, oval, etc. You can also purchase a shank adapter (verify it is the correct shank for your machine) and use it with a kit of snap-on presser feet so you can have a variety of presser feet for different functions.

Machine well not work with the quilting foot what can I do


Basic Tips for All
  1. Always turn the handwheel TOWARDS you (counter clockwise) as turning it in the opposite direction (away from you, clockwise) may knock the timing out requiring repair from a service center.
  2. Always be sure your presser foot is in the DOWN position before sewing. Sewing with the presser foot in the up position will cause your thread to tangle and your bobbin to jam.
  3. Change needles regularly (after 16 hours of use) as dull/weak needles can cause damage to your machine and fabric. Only use SINGER needles on your SINGER sewing machine.
  4. Always be sure you are using the correct bobbin for your machine. Class 66, Class 15 and Class 15J bobbins look very similar. However, using the incorrect bobbin class in your machine can cause damage.

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.

Do i need to drop the dog teeth when using the walking foot?


If you are quilting and using the walking foot than no. If you want to do stippling or "free motion" work than yes but with a different foot. A walking foot feed the material from the bottom and top at the same time....

Need to oil and install free motion foot correctly


Have your machine in for service about every five years, your certified Bernina Tech should be able to help you with preventative maintenance.
-You'll need to remove your needle plate by removing the two screws, pull out your hook (this is the part your bobbin sists in) but make sure you note which way it sits inside your machine. Clean out the pocket that the hook was sitting in with a vacuum and then oil either the metal rim that the hook rested on or the underside of the hook. I would suggest the upper and lower part of the needle bar as well but caution you as any grit will damage your machine.
-Yes you are right, the plastic circle is your freehand embroidery foot. Drop your feed dogs and have some fun!
-The box is your walking foot used for quilting. Top fabric, batting and bottom fabric. The walking foot helps move all three layers evenly with your feed dogs while you sew, so it won't slide around like a sloppy hamburger.
