    Hi from the state of Victoria in Australia. I am new to this site and have another question about walking feet! (sorry! :) I have an Elna 2003 machine and have just purchased a generic walking foot for it. Apparently the machine is discontinued and I was unable to find a foot specific for my machine. Now the foot has arrived, without any installation instructions or advice on how to use it and I am stumped! I just cannot see how it attaches - please someone help! I have my quilt finished and am ready to have a practice and try my first machine quilting. (To date have hand quilted but that takes forever!)

    greetings from the other side, i'm in NY.

    it should attach with a screw it to the pressure bar like other feet and it should have kind of a "fork" which needs to go over the screw on the needle bar (the one you loosen to change your needle)

    Hmmm, it has no screw, but above the bit that looks like a pressure foot is a white plastic u shaped piece that is stationary and to the right side of that is another black u shaped piece that is on a longer metal bar and it is movable, raising and lowering a plastic piece that is shaped like the pressure foot and is sitting above it.
