    Finding a Foot

    Hoping someone can give me a little guidance. I am looking for a free motion foot for my machine. It is an older machine, a brother VX 809, I think it might be from the 80's. I didn't realize I would have such a hard time finding one but when looking online I can't find any that will work with this model number. They all seem to be for newer machines. I even checked the Brother website and I don't see anything for older machines on that site either. Any suggestions on where else I can look?

    call Brewer sewing supply. They only sell wholesale, but they might be able to tell you what part will fit! If you don't have a LQS that can order it for you, PM me and I will see if I can order it!

    These people are a dream to work with!!! I have ordered from them several times. I have talked to them over the phone also when I wasn't sure what to order. If they don't have it, they will be able to order it in for you or will be able to tell you where you can get it.

    It depends on what kind of foot you are looking for. Some darning or FM feet are made to fit on different machine shafts. Some fit the straight shaft and some fit slanted shafts. You first need to find out what type will fit your machine. You can maybe search the web under your Brother machine to see if it has a foot designed for your model or if a universal darning foot will work. Back when I had my Singer, there was a universal foot that fit mine called "the big foot"? It had a spring in it and I think it was purple? It's been about 15 years so the brain is a little fizzy on the details. Hopefully someone will have a Brother machine like yours and can give you more specific information.
