    Hi, new to this site. Where is a good place to buy sewing machine feet. Am planning to upgrade, but currently have a Koyo and need feet for machine quilting. Any info would be helpful.

    Welcome to the board. I bought feet for my machine at the store were I bought the sewing machine. They also had "generic" feet that would work on a variety of machines. They usually ask if you have a long or short shank needle and if the bobbin is vertical or horizontal. I'm not sure why, but you might want to have those things in mind while shopping. (I actually took my machine with me so they could look at it and we could try different feet) You'll probably want a walking foot and maybe a free-motion or darning foot. Good luck.

    Here is a website that explains how to determine what type of shank your machine has:

    Not all generic feet are equal in quality, however, so it can still be a good idea to simply take the machine to a dealership and see if they can help you get the right feet for it.
