    I was working my my nieces bow tuck bag this evening and my walking foot broke :( My machine seizes with the foot attached. I took the foot apart thinking it needed to be cleaned but there are so many little pieces and I think I lost a couple little pieces and now I can't get it back together. I'm so sad. I have to order a new one now and there are no local shops that carry accessories for my machine so I have to order it online...

    I just needed to vent...I think I'll go cry and bury my walking foot in the backyard :(

    sending you lots of {{{{{HUGS}}}}} there is nothing worse than when things break and we try to fix them and it makes it worse. I am so sorry. it will be okay. just use your machine with the 1/4" foot or another foot that you can mark the 1/4" mark.

    It's not so much the 1/4 " part I'm worried about, the bow tuck is thick and it won't feed through without the walking foot. Who knows how long it will take for it to come in if I order it, and this is supposed to be a gift for christmas :(

    Don't cry. It will be okay. Just remember to ask yourself...."In five years will this really matter?"
    Good thougths coming your way.

    I would, but money is very tight so I'll only be able to get one. I'm hoping to not pay an arm and a leg for it. I'm taking the machine to Joann's tomorrow in hope they have a generic walking foot that will fit my machine.

    Forget the walking foot. Put on your darning foot and free-motion quilt.

    Good idea QuiltSage. That would be better since pushing it thru wouldn't be an issue. If you cant find a walking foot take QuiltSage's idea and finish your project with what you have. Good luck.

    Check Hancock ... they have walking feet as well ... so there may be a generic there ... if you have a Hancock ...

    When I ordered mine online, I had it in no time flat ... I pray you get yours quickly!

    What kind of machine do you have ? Perhaps someone here
    might have an extra?
