How do I attach a walking foot

I received a Singer 7430. I love the machine but I am quilting and need to attach a walking foot. Nowhere in the manual does it say how to do that. Can anyone help me?

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.

I have a new machine. This is the second the first had the same problem so I exchanged it. It worked fine on 1 project on both machines the next the time it did the following. When sewing stich #8 which is a zig-zag stitch with a straight line on one side, I get the #8 stitch on one the bottom side and the #13 stitch on the top side. I have read the manual, also re-wound the bobbin twice re-threaded the machine twice and changed the needle none of these worked. Do you have any suggestions.

Can you use quilting bar with walying foot that came with si ger 9960


The info I found has no mention of the quilting bar for the Siinger 9960 walking foot. Most machine with that functionality include the quilting bar with the walking foot. There also needs to be a hole through the walking foot and a method to attach the bar to the foot which doesn't seem possible with what I located. However, you may be able to attach a bar or a guide of some sort using something like masking tape that can be used as a guide.

On a straight-line quilting tutorial I saw recently, the quilter laid down strips painter's tape to mark the lines on the quilt before doing any stitching. Then she simply stitched next to to painter's tape to get straight lines.

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.)

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.

Why do stitches bunch when using walking foot on 3 layers of quilting fabric?


make sure that the thread tensions are correct for the thickness of material
remember that only the bottom foot walks and draws the material through so it may need a help and be pulled as it sews.
I find that women in sewing shops just love to talk about problems and how they can help so find a shop and discuss any problems with them

I have a singer 6202 sewing machine and I need to know how to attach the walking foot for quilting. thanks


You have to unscrew the presser foot, then attach the WF, using the same screw.

Make sure the lever on the WF rests on top of the needle bar clamp.

Some WF have a two prong lever and this fits around the needle clamp like a lobster claw.

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.

If you reach behing the foot holder there is a black lever. You can use this to remove and install each foot. Don't be afraid to play around with your machine, there's not much you can do to it that can't be fixed easily.

You go to the back edge of the presser foot (where it would be) there is a little button and a little slot and out the back of the presser foot toward the slot and it should click in
