Hi, I suggest you join the Yahoo group Berninathirtysomethings . They are a wealth of information.
To use the darning/free motion foot you have to lower the feeddogs with the knob on the lower right of the machine. Then just play with it on scraps until you get the hang of it and the tensions set properly.
Good luck.
Rick

I don't know how to use the darning on my bernina 950. Can you advise


You need to use a darning presser foot--there are several designs of darning feet made by Bernina or generic brands (be sure the generic model has the appropriate attachment for your particular Bernina). You can find metal or plastic, clear or solid foot, open or closed toe, spring-loaded hopper or not, etc. Drop the feed dogs. If it is thinner fabric (lighter weight than denim), it sometimes helps to put the fabric in an embroidery hoop (upside down with the fabric next to the needle plate). If the hole is small, you can use the little hoop that should have been included in your Bernina accessory kit. Then you manually move the fabric back & forth, up & down under the presser foot while stitching.

Is bernina 930 a low shank or high shank machine


Bernina has feet that are specific to their machines only. They have old and new style feet depending when the machine was made. You cannot put generic low, high, slant or snap on feet on a Bernina sewing machine.

I Have a bernina 830 and the foot doesn't come down or up how do I get it working again?


Have you followed the maintence standards (oil schedule). If not
that may be the issue. A wild guess (at least this was the issue
recently with wife's older White machine. The foot lever was catching on the thread cutter device. Otherwise, perhaps a screw has come loose somewhere in the lever and or foot. Good luck. Double check your manual troubleshooter section.

I would oil the foot with sewing machine oil where it is attached to the fitting. Be sure to then run the foot on a scrap for awhile to remove any excess oil.

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.
