I purchased a FMQ foot with a plastic oval so I could see where I was going. Yesterday, my needle went through the plastic! It didn't throw the machine out of time, but probably would have if it had been an all metal foot. The problem was where the small plastic "hoop" connected to the shaft that has the spring - it was loose and had just enough wiggle room to go under the needle. No way to tighten it back. (I hope I am explaining this so you understand what I am saying...)
So, to make a long story short, I need to replace my FMQ foot. I liked the plastic because of visibility, but am concerned that all plastic ones will be loose enough to go under the needle. Any suggestions on which FMQ foot is the best?
Thanks in advance for your help! I am just learning to FMQ and want to get back to it asap!
