    My sapphire has two modes so I use two feet; a hopping foot & a gliding foot.

    I use the foot with the spring. It had the clear plastic enclosed part and I couldn't see where I was going. The guy I got it from said to cut on the lines it had on it to make it an open one. Check with the repairman at your LQS and he may sell them. Mine was between $10-15 and my walking foot was only $18 from him. glenda

    Thank you all for your replies! I was thinking the spring would be important and that is what I originally set out to find but then all these others popped up... I also saw similar feet to my embroidery foot but of course, I want something else that is going to cost money! LOL It's got to be the foot that at fault, not me...right??

    check out this video. I ordered a new open toed darning foot from a store where they could tell me if the foot was appropriate for my specific machine...

    This company had salespeople that helped me over the phone. The salespeople actually knew how to sew. They were knowledgeable and very nice.

    The darning foot on my Janome is what I use for FMQ and it works fine (when I use it) but I am not a fan of FMQ.
