    Make that at least 3 of us. I used it for the first time recently - what a difference and a pleasure!!! Glad I bought one and sorry I waited so long to try it.

    The only time the walking foot comes off my machine is when I'm free motion quilting or putting in a zipper that needs the zip foot.

    Well, apparently you at least hooked it up correctly the first time you used it. Not the case with me. haha Sometimes I swear I really did just fall off a turnip truck. :oops:

    Oh, yes, I love my walking foot! It was well worth the money and I honestly don't know how I ever sewed without it. I got it 2 weeks ago, and it makes straight lines so much easier for me. Much less stress when sewing...

    I love my walking foot also! It works real well for sewing on the binding also.

    Sounds like some of you quilting sisters have sewn without a walking foot for a while. I'm with tjradj. Mine rarely comes off my Janome6600. Must admit I'm lucky to own several machines but they all have a walking foot. At least now you won't be quilting at a disadvantage. Enjoy.
    Happy Quilting
