    A presser foot that helps you make perfect curves? Yes!

    It's called the Curve Master:

    It looks awesome in the video. Have any of you tried it?
    I even found one on eBay that supposedly will work with our vintage Singer slant sewing machines.

    That looks like a great tool. I haven't even done curves yet, well not many. This may let me try at least.

    I've seen it demod at a quilt show. I still haven't gotten one yet, but intend to.

    Yes, I bought one at a quilt show several years ago, because the person demonstrating it did such an awesome job of the curves. But to be honest, I can do better with just my regular 1/4" foot. I found I had more control guiding the fabric under my 1/4" foot with a stylus than the curve master did with the wider foot. But, it's not so expensive that if you try it and don't like it you would have lost a lot. Good luck!

    I got one and like quiltmom04, find I do better with my 1/4 foot. I think the demonstrator does well because she has done it thousands of times. I pin it both ends, the middle and then in between again, 5 pins total, sew slowly and they turn out perfectly everytime.

    I watched it demoed at a quilt show a couple of years ago. I bought one, but have never used it.

    As always, I am so glad I asked about something here on the QB before purchasing! quiltmom & dottie your input is very helpful - thank you! I guess it would be wise to do more practicing with a 1/4" foot before looking for a magic solution.

    I have one and have used it a couple of times. It's ok but find that I can do just as well with a regular foot by just slowing down a little bit when sewing.

    I bought one and made a perfect sample the first time...never could make another one as good.
