    Circular sewing attachment

    Do any of you have the circular sewing foot attachment. It looks really cool. I could see my self using it to make circles for quilts as well as quilting circles on blocks.
    If you have one, do you like it and do you use it. Does it leave quite a hole in the fabric?
    This is a video of the one for my machine.

    I don't want to brag but I can still fit into the earrings I wore in high school.

    That looked really cool! I have that attachment for my singer....but honestly I've never used it. May be tempted to try it now!! I looked at the "pin" and it's about the size of the little lapel pins....shouldn't leave a hole.

    Does not leave a big hole but it does leave a hole. Pretty neat tool. Don't use it a lot but have used it. Didn't use it for quilt, used it making handbag.

    I have one for my Bernina....whole goes away easily with a little help from my fingernail! My granddaughter uses it all the time...she is making a quilt with recycled denim sqs....just be sure to use a stabilizer under the decorative stitches
    May the scrap fairy visit your sewing room often

    Up until Vikings latest circle attachment I would never invest in one. I had a thumb tack and pencil eraser and it did the same thing. But Vikings new one does so much more, like making flowers, etc. I had to get one

    I have the circle attachment for my Bernina. It works great and came with the machine. I have the small one called Flower foot for my Singer that fits my Janome and Brother. I like the flower foot better. It wasn't expensive at all about $17. It is limited in the size circle it makes though.
    Got fabric?

    If you want to quilt with it, wouldn't you have to be turning the whole quilt alot on a regular machine? Or is it only for the long arm?
