    Well it was just as I figured. My walking foot for my older machine is not compatible with my new one. Darn - this means I have to go buy one because my older machine is very tempermental (spelling?) plus I need to get the potholders done for the quilt guild. I think I am going to go where I bought the machine. The lady there was so nice about making sure my darning foot worked on my machine. A walking foot is pretty much a necessity , right? I am trying to justify spending the money for one :D

    I would not quilt without my walking foot. I remember before these were available... sooo many puckers. That liitle gismo is worth the money.

    I agree with Lori S. I would also spend the money and get the brand name one for your machine. I tried to save money with a generic one. It did work, but was so cheaply made it broke and I had to buy another one, this time a 'real' one.

    My old one worked with my new machine, but I did have to buy a longer screw. Cost 3 bucks!

    If she was so helpful re the darning foot, was she not as concerned about your walking foot?

    There's no justification required ... you clearly need one to do your work!

    I see ... I thought your darning foot discussion was at the time you bought your machine. So I thought the natural segue would have been the walking foot.

    well it looks like i will take my machine in on friday to make sure it fits since there are no returns on them. i am toying with the idea of using a longer screw just for the simple reason that it tends to slide out the back. if it works fine if not i am not out that much. still debating. though i know dear hubby would love to go the hardware store with me

    If all you need is a longer screw, the sewing machine store should be able to provide one that will work nicely for this.
