Can tell you how this works on my sewing machines that have the snap-on feet.

You have to remove the adapter for the snap-ons and then the attach the darning/quilting foot with the screw that holds the adapter to the shaft.

SOURCE: How do I attach a walking foot

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.

Difficult to be definitive without specific model information, but......
Generally a "walking foot" will suit this best, as it grips the work on both sides and moves it all through evenly, using an ordinary style foot may mean the layers of fabric and batting shift relative to each other and bunching uneven results will occur, even with careful ststegic pinning.......speak to the dealer for your brand and quote the model you have to ask if they can supply one to suit.
As a guide, a Janome walking foot in Australi is around $AUD 65 retail

NOTE: Not all machines are able to take these feet, especially older and low end models.

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 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.

Quilting and patchwork foot with attached shank


Probably, but since we don't know the model, we can't help you much.

You can search the internet for your make and model machine and search for a 1/4" presser foot. You'll most likely find one piece presser feet or even snap-on feet where you purchase the shank adapter and then separate presser feet that attach to the shank.

You can also check with your local Pfaff dealer.

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.

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.

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.

I WOULD LIKE TO TRY MACHINE QUILTING WITH MY ROSE MACHINE. DO I NEED A SPECIAL FOOT ATTACHMENT OR COMPUTER CARD?


If you want to piece quilts, I recommend a 1/4" piecing foot. Husqvarna make several different types that may be used on the Rose.
If you want a dual feed or walking foot, check out the new Interchangeable Dual Feed foot.
You only use card with the Rose for embroidery, which you can do on a quilt, but not necessary.
