    Anyone buy a walking foot for this machine? I have been checking online and the prices are all over the place. One place wanted 70.00 for it. Was wondering where you purchased yours and what you paid? $70.00 seems a little steep.....Thanks for your help, Michele

    I have seen a brand called Distinctive feet I belive it is a generic for all machines. I have used the quilting foot and their 1/4 foot for my juki I have not had any problems. I have see their walking feet for around $25 just something to look into.

    I paid $29.95 for a Janome for my Elna. It's a lot quieter than the generic one it replaced. I overheard the LQS owner tell a customer they were going up with the next shipment. I've seen short shank ones online for $24.95 several places.

    get the part number off the brother site or from your manual and then go to amazon.com. You will find it a LOT less.

    I bought the same one at joanns for $12.00 and it's great. doing rag quilt with batting and denim and it walks it right through on my SE350. I can't see paying alot of money for one when this works fine.

    I just purchased the Even Feed/Walking Foot w/Quilt Guide from Amazon for $15.00. I have already used, works great! I am now looking for the Open Toe Quilting "O" (SA187) for the SE400 also.

    Will this foot work with the Brother SE400? The operation manual says the Open Toe Quilting foot is the SA187. I am also looking for the binding foot and I found that one to be the SA109. I found them both on Amazon but also found them on SewVacDirect.com and they are less expensive. I think that's the direction I'm going. Thanks!

    I had a generic one on my Brother SE 400 but it broke. When I went to replace it I was told that the generic won't let you set your zig-zag completely wide. The Brother one has a wider needle opening. I think I paid about $50 3 or 4 years ago.
