    The Pfaff IDF is not big and bulky nor are the feet. That is the reason I have a Pfaff. Take a look at them. Pfaff's also has a machine with a bigger bed too.

    The mechanism on my Pfaff ia a small lever that engages another small part on the needle shaft. It is nothing like the bulky walking feet that are screwed on. My Viking has one and I feel the same as you - it is just in the way back there. I use the Pfaff for all my piecing and the Viking for my FMQ

    She then said to lift the lever to the highest position then lower that foot from the back? I tried that once and it wouldn't sew. Could it have been because I had the feed dogs UP?

    I'm embarassed to drive up there and ask again so thought I turn to someone on the list who has the machine and can guide me through this.

    I am a brand new quilter. I bought this beautiful Janome Memory Craft 7700 and was wondering, "why did this expensive machine not come with a walking foot.?" So I ordered one. Well, the lady that I ordered it from called to tell me that my machine has a built in walking foot. I had no idea what that Dual Feed Foot was for. LOL.....
