    I've always been under the impression the only information needed in order to acquire a hopping foot for an old machine was whether the machine was long shank or short shank. Is that correct or no?

    To my knowledge that is correct, but ask Lostin51 or Charlee for sure.

    Glad I remembered that one then. I'm guessing a "hopping foot" is like a darning foot?
