    For future reference, the IDT can only be used if the back of the foot has a large opening. So you can kind of tell by looking if you can use the IDT with it. I looked at the picture of the 6A and it doesn't look open, so that may be your problem. Hope it gets to be more fun for you soon.

    Dar,
    I hope those suggestions are working for you. I have the 4.0 and I LOVE this machine- you will too when you figure it all out. I looked at my machine- and when you attach the 6A foot the plastic piece that sticks up on the foot sits in front of the ankle- (where the foot attaches) and the little bar on the foot just snaps onto the bottom of the ankle. I hope this makes sense! Also don't forget to drop the feed dogs- I did when I first got this machine and I remember pulling my hair out and swearing a blue streak! I hate it when stuff doesn't work right....of course it was user error. Where I purchased my machine offered a new user class; this was very helpful to me and I actually learned how to make a button hole! This machine makes it so easy!! I used to have a Pfaff 935 Hobbymatic before this machine and didn't know why anyone would need/want the needle up/down, automatic tie-offs and thread snips etc...but now after a 1.5 yrs of using this machine I wouldn't want anything else. This machine is the best thing I have ever purchased- I love it & I hope you will too! Take a deep breath, maybe take a break and come back to it and it will be easier. BTW I did buy the optional free-motion quilting foot (per the seller's recommedation) and I do like it better than the one that came with the machine. Good Luck and I hope things get easier for you!
