    Foot for free motion quilting on treadle

    OK. I have watched the youtube videos on fmq and think with a treadle might not be so challenged as have been on other attempts. Only problem, the sound is not good on computer and I can not catch the name of the foot I need. I would be using it on my White Rotary 1911. Search word suggestions for looking on ebay? Or a pic of what I am looking for. The one in video looks to me like a darning foot?

    The videos I've watched stated darning foot. Have fun. Not going to know if anything works until you try.

    I'm hoping Macybaby sees this, she'll know if there is a darning or free motion foot that will work on your White.
    One setup that I see on Ebay fairly often is a little spring that fits over the needle for darning. One of those would work on any machine though I don't know how effective they are.

    I've tried a darning spring on the White rotary and didn't like it at all. There are no darning feet I was happy with. I gifted the machine away as it wouldn't do what I needed.

    Thanks. Never heard of the spring before. Worth a try (as tessagin says, worth a try.) Still looking for a darning foot for the machine. The slot seems different on the standard low shanks than on this 1911 FR but I could just not be understanding and one would actually work.
