    quilting foot

    I am having a small problem I bought a new Singer Quantum L500 from U S A unfortunately it didn't have a Free Motion Quilting Foot I am trying to track one but seems that they are hard to find in Australia and I have done google search and I am getting the round around. Does any of you ladies know where i can found one in USA and have it send to me. I have a paypall account and can easily send money via PP for item and postage. I did found a seller in the U S but he doesn't want to send to Australia
    Thank you for taking the time.

    I bought mine here as well as several other feet. You can use paypayl and they will ship internationally. If the foot isn't on their website, shoot them an email. They have done some searching for me to get me something I needed. The are a gem to work with! I highly recommend them and they are the first place I look when I need something for my Janome. http://kenssewingcenter.com/

    I'm pretty sure it is a low shank. From the pictures it looks like it. I have a Quantum XL-3400 as a back up machine and it is low shank.

    I forgot that I had started a post almost a year ago asking the same thing. Check it out as there is some good information there.

    It is low shank but be careful that you get the right foot because the lever for the integrated walking foot will be in the way if you don't.

    Thank you Ladies for all your help one email was sent to a seller in U S A, I did check Amazon and learnt about low and high shanks and ebay item was sold, DH is going to have a go to make my old Jenome foot fit a little more snugly on my new Singer it's been a great day very positive
    Thank you all for taking the time
