I looked at your machine accessories online and I think that you have a low shank, so, I think that a Singer or Brother would fit your machine just fine. JoAnn's may have one in there Viking gallery. And if it does not fit at least you can return it. Other than that, you can always call Riccar and see if they have one.

HV sapphire 930 not feeding properly


When stitching together a quilt sandwich, it is recommended to use a walking foot on your machine. The walking foot moves the upper fabric in conjunction with the feed dogs. Sometimes, if the quilt sandwich is not too thick, a roller foot can also help but may not be sufficient for a quilt sandwich.

You may also check the presser foot pressure on your machine. This regulates the amount of pressure the presser foot applies to the fabric and the feed dogs. If the pressure is too strong, it will tend to push the upper layers of fabric, creating a bubble look. If the pressure is too loose, there is not enough pressure for the feed dogs to physically pull entire quilt sandwich under the presser foot.
(The pressure is adjustable depending on the types of fabric and thicknesses being sewn.)

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.

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.

I have an old EuroPro Sewing Machine and lost the user manual years ago.I am trying to figure which accessories to use for quilting. Can you tell which accessory and where it goes and other recommendations...


Try this website, it has lots of good info on feet and where you would use them. http://sewmamasew.com/blog2/2009/06/feet-feet-feet/ This should help you identify the feet youve got. Many machines will have a zig zag foot with room for the needle to swing, a zipper foot, a blind hem foot and a buttonhole foot as a basic selection. There are lots of others too for specialised techniques such as rolled hem, overcasting or tuffting.

For Quilting though you actually can get away with just a straight stitch foot to piece the fabric and a walking foot if you are going to machine stitch the layers and batting together. This is a walking foot.
tally_girl_73.jpg Having a quarter inch foot is very handy to achieve perfect 1/4" seams for piecing.tally_girl_74.jpg
Lastly, if you want to try stippling or free motion quilting, you'll need a special foot, and it will probably look a little like this.

Need parts/manual for old Riccar sewing machine


Here's a manual for the 551, it should be similar enough for your machine.
http://www.riccar.com/ftp/whitepapers/551-Owners-Manual.pdf
If not look on www.riccar.com/help/manuals for a similar model.
Find out what shank your machine is and you should be able to buy parts for it. I find ebay great for old sewing machine parts.
Hope this helps!

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.

I have a White 955 machine and I am trying to quilt with it. It works just fine when I am sewing just one piece of material to another but when I want to sew the layers of the quilt together the stitches...


I know this is strange, but make sure the pressure foot is down. When I quilt sometimes, after getting the bulk under the needle, I forget to put the pressure foot down or it get's knocked back up by the quilt and causes the same problem. Good luck.
