    I have two of these machines and I just love them. I do all my free motion on one of them without the foot. So I just ordered it, thank goodness. These are real work horses. I can't say mine is noisey, like all machines they have their own personality and sounds.

    fantastic, joe! thank you - i'll go see if i can find it! I'm going to need feet too - there were no accessories at all that came with this one, but it was cheap, so i can't complain!

    btw, this machine isn't especially noisy at all. does yours need oil or lubing? that can make them noisy.

    i found the thumb screw and released the feed dogs. yippee! i didn't see it at first but then pulled out the manual that i'd downloaded and it told how to drop the feed dogs for darning. now i need that darning foot. i'm looking on ebay.

    After changing to the "cheapie" fmq foot, the noise is pretty much gone, and I LOVE this machine for the fmquilting that I'm trying to perfect...practice, practice, practice. That's what I do.
