    A pair of wire cutters, no sanding required.

    I called my sewing machine dealer yesterday and asked him to find an open toe darning foot for FMQ that is compatible for the babylock quilter's choice. If he can't find one, I am going to buy a second darning foot and try cutting it down myself.

    I have a closed foot on one of my machines and an open one on my main machine that I use and I keep on meaning to change them over, the open one is a pain in the proverbial when you get to the edges as they catch on the side :evil:
