You could ask at a Bernina shop...my feeling is that you will need to buy the whole foot as I have not heard of parts for these in any manufacturer, it would be a warehousing nightmare.

Do I need a walking foot to stitch in the ditch using Viking freesia 415?


A walking foot would be helpful especially for quilting where there are multiple layers of fabric. The walking foot actually moves the upper layer in conjunction with the lower fabric helping to prevent wrinkles in the stitching.

For other projects, there may be other feet that could work. Your sewing machine may have other accessories, like this foot for Berninas Blindstitch foot 5

stitch in ditch Google Search

FWIW, it is very difficult to actually stitch "in the ditch" as any slight deviation will show. Usually, it is better to stitch just a bit to one side or the other.

My Aurora 440 is not feeding my quilted fabric through when stitching?


You probably need to adjust the presser foot pressure (see your owner's manual) and install a walking foot.

How can I get my Bernina 750 to feed the top and bootom fabric pieces for quilts evenly


Try using a walking foot. The issue most quilters face when working with any sewing machine is that there is a force being applied to move the bottom fabric but the top fabric is only moving based on friction with the bottom fabric. This can cause the bottom fabric to move quicker than the top. A walking foot helps solve this issue by placing a second set of feed dogs on the top of the fabric to mirror the force being applied on the bottom, allowing both pieces of fabric to move evenly.

Hope that helps!

There are a lot of variables with your problem. I quilt for a living and I really would need to see a video to help you. Your machine is pretty portable and the issue is probably just operator error. I work for a Bernina dealership and we are instructed to be incredibly accommodating in these situations. Just take it in and ask for help.

Bernina walking foot


Hm, just guessing here.

Have you checked to make sure the walking foot (u-shaped) bar is still attached to the needle bar? Are the feed dogs still in the up position and operating like they should?

Learn How to Use Sewing Machine Walking Foot

Something else that I've run across in my sewing adventures is that walking feet need periodic oiling to keep them operating. Just manipulate the walking foot with your hands and watch where there are moving joints. Then apply a small drop of good quality sewing machine oil to each joint. Work it in and then wipe off the excess so it won't stain your fabric.

Bernina 630 pressure foot won't stay up. What do I do?


Make certain that the foot is firmly attached to the bar. If that is the problem (it won't stay in place on the bar) you may need a new or different foot.

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.

I hav e Bernina 1150. When I attach the walking


Hi, when you quilt straight lines using the walking foot, you need the feed dogs up, to move the fabric in a straight direction under the needle. When you do free motion quilting, which is done with a darning foot, your hands move the fabric in many different directions. Since you want to be the one to move the fabric, you put the feed dogs down and you do the work. So when you use the walking foot, keep your feed dogs up. When you use the darning foot, feed dogs down.
