I haven't been able to locate the company nor parts anywhere on the net. However a few suggestions that might help you...

1. look on ebay! Often when someone has something that has broken they will sell parts off of it on ebay.

2. Go to a locate business that sells the machine and ask if they will order the part for you.

3. Join freecycle in your area and post a request for one (see #1 above). Freecycle are email lists by area where people post items they are giving away and you can requested "wanted" items too. Perhaps someone happens to have just what you are looking for.

Can a ruler foot be used on my singer Quantum Stylist 9960


Most likely, yes. However, there are several brands of rulers and ruler feet so be sure to do your research. It is important that the rulers be thick enough that the foot will not allow the ruler to slip underneath or you will have a big collision between the needle and ruler. A lot of quilters like the Westalee brand. You can verify with the ruler foot vendor if it will work on your machine before your purchase.

How do I change my needle position to a scant 1/4 stitch


Unless your machine has multiple minute needle positions, you probably won't get a perfect scant 1/4 inch with that method. I haven't found a 1/4" foot or a needle position that gives a perfect scant 1/4".

Instead, look at setting a mark on the sewing machine surface that measures a scant 1/4" from the needle point. I use a ruler and set the needle point on a scant 1/4" from the ruler edge, then use painter's tape or something similar to mark the guide where the fabric edge will set.

Or, the fastest and easiest guide is a pad of 3X5 Post-It Notes. Measure a scant 1/4" from the needle point, remove the back sheet of a Post-It pad, and then align the sticky edge of the pad to the scant 1/4". Instant fabric guide that is easy to remove and is reusable.

How to Mark Scant Quarter Inch Seam with Painters Tape to Your Sewing...

Does a quarter inch quilting foot come with the machine, if so what does it look like?


If your machine is considered a "quilting" machine, it may have a 1/4" foot included. However, most machines do not include the 1/4" foot. A quarter inch foot looks a lot like a basic presser foot except the edge should be 1/4" away from the needle.

FWIW, you can achieve a 1/4" seam by placing a ruler under the presser foot and gently manually lowering the needle point until it rests on the ruler's 1/4" mark. The ruler's edge would then be exactly 1/4" away from the needle. You can place a piece of painter's tape (on the sewing surface) adjacent to the ruler edge and this would serve as your quarter inch guide.

Even if you decide to purchase a quarter inch foot, in my experience, none of them provide the "scant quarter inch" seam for piecing. Other than marking a scant quarter inch measurement on your sewing machine, achieving it will usually take some testing to determine what constitutes a scant quarter inch on your machine.

I have a Bernina 1030. When I put a presser foot #57 on the needle hits the presser foot. The presser foot covers the wide hole in the back.


Hm, I'm at a loss here unless the presser foot you have is not the correct one for your machine. I believe some presser feet for older Berninas may not work on the 1030-1230 machines. If you have the original #37 1/4" foot for your machine, you might compare the differences between the two feet and you might see where the problem lies.

Understanding Bernina Sewing Machine Shanks Sewing Parts Online Everything...

1 4 INCH 37 PATCHWORK FOOT for BERNINA OLD 830E 830 817 eBay

FWIW, I have both the #37 and #57. The #57 (or actually any of the 1/4" presser feet that are touted as "accurate 1/4") really does not solve the "scant 1/4" seam" for quilting because it still makes a 1/4" that is too wide. The best method I've found is to set a ruler under the presser foot. Set it so the needle tip rests lightly on the 1/4" mark and then mark the outside edge of the ruler with painter's tape on the needle plate. Then use the edge of the painter's tape as your 1/4" edge. If you find your 1/4" is still not "scant" enough, move the painter's tape a tinge until you get it where you want it.

I have a sapphire 930 and would like to quilt using rulers but I need to know what shank size I have to get in order to use a ruler foot for my machine?


You can probably figure out which shank works on your machine:

Sewing Presser Feet

You'll just need to get a darning or free motion foot because they are shorter than regular feet which allows space to manipulate the fabric.

HOWEVER, some machines require different presser feet for use with rulers. The presser foot is actually deeper so it will not "jump" on top of the ruler while stitching. Some recommend Westalee rulers because they are thicker.

TacsewKM1243A only sews in reverse how can i make it go fowoad ?


1. Take the top off your machine.
2. Move the stitch length back and forth and watch the arm inside .
3. By doing this you will see where the arm is connected. The arm is probably loose or stuck by old grease. Look on the arm for loose screws. Tighten them.
4. If you see old grease that is hard and dirty you will need to clean it off. Use carburetor cleaner. Use old rags and a qtip and toothbrush. (Don't brush with it anymore)
5. Recheck to see if the mechanisms inside move by the arm.
6. Put some material on the sewing machine w/o a needle or bobbin inside. Turn the hand wheel and watch the material. You will have to move the arm to different areas to see differences in the material movement.
7. Once the material is moving you can put new oil on all moving parts that touch each other. (steel against steel)
Remember loose screws, old grease are probably the problems.

Viking Husqvarna Sapphire 830. I am not able to get a true 1/4" seam using the clear 1/4" Piecing Foot with Guide. The needle space in this foot only allows for the needle to be in the center location. ...


Unfortunately, in reality, most 1/4" presser feet do not guarantee a perfect scant 1/4". There are multiple ideas for achieving a more accurate scant 1/4" seam.

This is the method I use. Use a quilting ruler and place it under the presser foot and then gently rotate the handwheel until the needle point rests exactly a scant 1/4" from the ruler edge. Then place a strip of painter's tape on the sewing surface adjacent to the edge of the ruler. Then use the painter's tape as your fabric guide.

The striching does not fonction correctly


Sounds like the feed dogs aren't adjusted correctly. To check, take off presser foot and needle. use a narrow straight edge like a metal ruler and lay it across the dogs. Notice of the ruler is level. Check on both sides front to back as well. If you find issues... call around your area for an authorized repair person for your model sewing machine.

Janome mermory craft 8000 drop feed dog


I hate to sound dismissive but: read the manual. Duh. It is not as written above: drop dog........
The feed dog is the toothed pieces in the sewing machine deck, under the needle, which move the material away from you when you push the operating pedal.
Dropping the dog - ie making it inoperative - (see manual for how to on your machine) means the material has to be propelled by hand under the needle. This is especially good for freehand machine embroidery as it means you can move the material in any direction whilst sewing.
It can be easier to freehand embroider if your material is fixed in to an embroidery hoop to hold it flat while you work.
