Ladies I've been away for a year dealing with stuff and haven't been quilting but hopefully by March I'd like to get back to it. I think it was around Mother's day of 2011 when I bought myself a Brother computerized machine that had an embrodery attachment. Long story short I started sewing with the wrong stitch while I had the quarter inch foot on and the needle hit the foot and ever since the machine makes an ugly noise when I change stitches. I haven't taken in for repair yet, too afraid of the cost.
I've been told there are no quilting police so why hasn't anyone designed a presser foot that had a space on it wide enough for those of us that might make a mistake on the stitch settings. I know the foot is used for a straight stitch but I also know that I can't be the only one who gets weary at the machine and makes mistakes.
Quilters are a huge consumer group so I'm sure these presser feet would sell with the proper advertising. Who knows maybe there's a presser foot out there already that I'm not aware of that would allow for mistakes. If anyone knows of one please let me know.
