    question for those with viking saphire or viking tribute 140c...

    i'm awaiting the arrival of my tribute 140c. my question is....i have an older viking 350, and have a walking foot for it. i notice on the website there is a different style walking foot. does anyone know if my older walking foot will work with the new machine???

    Thank you so much!

    Your best bet is calling thecompany they will know. I did check the Vicking web site and it does apper to have the dual feed foot with it. There is another foot available. Luann in CT

    Viking machines are catagorized by a number. For instance my Scandinavia and the Platinum machines are #6. Any feet that are for the #6 will fit. You will have to find out what number your machines are in. Ask your dealer.

    At the dealer, the accessories are numbered 1-7 with which machines they work with. You just need your machine's number. :-)

    I have an two Vikings and when I bought my latest I was told all the feet from my oldie will fit my new one. You are probably talking about the new interchaneable walking foot and it's limited to what machines it will fit. You shouldn't have a problem with your machines though. You can go to Vikings website and look at the accessories catolog; in the front of it you will see all the machines and what # they are; like my Ruby is a #7 and my #1 is a 1 and so on. Then go to where the walking feet are and it will show what all machines use each one. Hope this helps.

    You can do everything with it. Forwards backwards, zig zag. So many things that you can't do with a normal foot. I think if you google it you can find a video out there that shows it in use. I think they have about 4 different feet that goes with it including a 1/4 in. It was good thinking or Vikings part; that and the cutwork needles; my favorite.
