Is this the foot that I would need for FMQ? Is it the same thing as a darning foot?
Welcome to the Quilting Board!
Yes, as long as it will fit your machine. I have this foot and use it on both a Brother machine and a Janome machine with no problems.
Great price, too! I paid more than that!
It wasn't clear to me from the description if this was a "hopping" foot (what is needed for FMQ). However, reading the reviews showed that it does indeed have a spring and someone used it to quilt a baby quilt. You do have to be careful because sometimes a piecing foot is sold as a quilting foot. This, however, appears to be the right kind of foot for FMQ.
One good thing about buying from Amazon's in-stock stuff (not 3rd party sellers) is that returns are very easy.
Prism99, I knew I had seen someone say that before, that's why I wanted to post it here before I ordered it.
That is a good price! I looked around and its $15-20+ dollars everywhere else.
That's it! Beware of the one called the Big Foot. It was awful. I went through three of them and called their headquarters. They promised to send me a replacement almost two months ago and I have never received it. I found a metal one at my LQS. It was cheaper, I can see through it better and have not had one lick of trouble with it. I suggest that if you get it through your LQS that you take your machine in and have them show you how to install it. There is a little trick to it.
You know, I researched that one a little, and found a LOT of bad reviews for it. So, it must be pretty bad for that many people to review it ad.Originally Posted by GrammaNan

Are Janome feet and Brother feet the same?Originally Posted by oatw13
I hate to hear the Big Foot has gotten bad reviews. I've had mine a couple years and love it.
