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.

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.

Difficulty achieving a consistent 1/4 inch seam allowance


Using a straight stitch needle plate helps a lot. The end of the fabric doesn't get drawn down into the zig zag needle hole. The needle plate will cost around $50 but for me it is worth it for accurate piecing.

I have the Mega Quilter and Quilters Cruise Control. My stitches are very inconsistent.


I agree to have the regulator check, & even having the whole machine checked wouldn't hurt.

Can i get a 1/4 inch quilters foot for this machine and how much is it how can i get a manual for this machine, is it the same manual as for a hf 106


If you are unable to purchase through your sewing machine dealer in your area, check the manufacturer website...if that doesn't work, check eBay or Etsy auctions.

I do not have a problem with the machine. I am curious about the plate numbers. On an american sewing machine, the plate the fabric feeds through, normal have 1/4, 5/8, etc. On the Euro Pro Denim Model ...


So an American machine has imperial seam guides on the needle plate.

But the Euro Pro would be European and in metric so it has seam guides in metric widths, i.e. millimetres. 10 will be 10 millimetres, or 1 centimetre, 16 mm, 22mm.

A normal seam in metric is 15mm - in your land 5/8", the two are not quite the same but pretty close. This link http://convert.french-property.co.uk/ gives you a converter between the two systems.

A 1/4" is your standard piecing seam for the quilters and this is why many Australian quilters will buy a 1/4" foot so they can guide the fabric along the foot edge to get nice standard seams.

So you could break out some masking tape and a metric/imperial ruler and measure from the needle to the right and put a strip of tape onto your needle plate to mark your 5/8" dimension you are used to. Or use the 16mm seam marking which is very close anyway.

Hope this helps.

Elna 6003 quilters dream isn't sewing properly. It makes one stitch and then jams around the bobbin and presser foot area. I wish someone would post a free copy of the instruction manual because I can't...


This is the only one I could find and it is $10.00 http://www.mcssl.com/SecureCart/ViewCart.aspx?mid=F506721D-3C9E-481E-8B3F-7E1C3114072F&sctoken=0465a6a54d8e482581a12d868a00a3fb&bhcp=1

The reason for the jam could be the fabric is thick and this causes the foot to raise to the point the the tension is open that the top thread is feeding erratically.

Another could be the bobbin area needs to be cleaned.

Lastly, it could be the timing needs to be adjusted and this means a trip to the sewing machine dealer for service.
