    I would like to know your thoughts on using a walking foot. Do you like it, hate it, love it, when you use it, when you don't use it.....

    I have never used mine and am wondering if it's a little miracle just waiting to happen for me.

    I use mine for quilting and binding. I think it helps keep my stitches more even. My poor little machine has a tough time with thick things and the foot helps it along.

    A walking foot is a good investment. I own a Janome 6500 and even that workhorse needs the even feed that it gets from a walking foot!

    Many people just love them, I have used mine one time on potholders and it helped quilt them.

    I waited for years to purchase mine, it just seemed so expensive. Now I wish I had not waited so long. I love it. It really makes a difference. No more little puckers on the backs! I hated getting to the point on a project that I had to quilt it , because as good as I was getting onthe piecing , the back would show I was still ... an novice. I would spend hours smoothing , and smoothing and still little puckers. My walking foot and spray basting changed everything.

    It would be hard for me to quilt without mine LOL
    I use it for binding, quilting, sometimes to add borders on too. Once you start using it? You will wonder why you waited so long :D:D:D

    It makes ALL THE DIFFERENCE IN THE WORLD! The loftier the batter, the MORE difference it makes. Sometimes I use it for piecing, too ... just so I won't have to change feet for a few quick seams. Definitely invest in one, no question.
