    Sewing Machines with Built in Walking Foot

    I know Pfaff and Baby Lock Quest is 2 of the ones I know about. Is there any others that have recently come out with a built in walking foot?

    Isn't that what the Accufeed on the Janome 6600/7700 is? I know it makes quilting much easier.

    Pfaff calls theirs IDT and had it on a number of machines.
    I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.

    I just bought a Baby Lock Sernade and it has the built in walking foot. That is the main reason I purchased it.

    What is the model number is your Quantum? Aren't there several Quantum's? Have you had good service from your Singer? I have read good and bad about Singers lately.

    Yes, Janome 6600 and 7700 both have an integrated walking foot (called "accufeed").
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    My Brother 1500 has pin feed. I think it's the same as a built in walking foot. I can switch it off and on.

    Got fabric?

    Most built in walking feet except are rather big and bulky. That's why I like the Pfaff.

    I have the Quantum L500 and it has a built in walking foot. I've had it about 3 years now without a lick of trouble.

    Thanks for everyone's input. I am trying to decide. I love the Pfaff, but, they are out of my budget.(a new one)

    Not that I personally know of but the new walking foot on the brother dreamweaver is better. its not built in but it has its own motor and is worth its weight in gold. It is the first of its kind. The only way I can describe it is its like a differential feed on a serger allowing you to adjust how fast it feeds the top as compared to the bottom. Saw it demonstrated today and far surpasses the built in walking foot in technology.

    My past two machines have the PFAFF - IDT built in. Love it and it is not bulky. Maybe consider a used PFAFF. Mine is an older 2056. They are work horses.

    I strongly recommend the Pfaff machines. I have one, Creative 1471, I bought new in 1986 and still use it everyday I sew. I like it so much better than adding the attachment like I have to do on my Brother 1500D. Maybe look for a used one.

    Yes, my Bernina 830 has it built in, too. I just pull it down from behind my needle. It locks in place. I pull on it and it goes back up if I don't want to use it, but I always use it, always for everything. I buy all my feet so they can go with it. It makes all the difference in the world.

    I would have bought the L500 when I was looking last year, but I cannot find one anywhere to purchase!

    Also, Juki has a built in walking foot.
