This is where I got my Viking walking foot at a much cheaper price than anyone else. Easy to deal with - no problems. I even got free shipping.

You may want to check out this site:


I have purchased all of my Viking feet from them and paid $39 for my walking foot (have an older Viking). Of course maybe the newer feet are more expensive?? Anyway, I have always received my order within about 4 days time. I think it is free shipping for small items. Great online store!

I can't live without mine! And the points of the stars come out very well with it.

I have purchased several Husqvarna feet from sewingstyle.com. They have a couple different 1/4" feet


FOr 1/4" piecing, I always use the edge stitching foot. It has a flange on the right side of the foot. I move the needle to the right to give me a 1/4" between the needle and the flange. Then I sew with my pieces lined up against the flange.

My 1/4 foot from my Viking #1 also fit my Topaz. Like someone else stated - if you get one you will not be sorry and will use it for years. I use mine every day. And it is very easy to change feet. I'm surprised that so many are saying the price of accessories are high. I always firgure you get what you pay for and I have been satisfied with all the Vikings I have owned. (three machines and two sergers)

Ditto. Just after the holidays a quilt store near me had an end of the year sale.She had 30% off all viking accesories. So I got the interchangeable dual feed foot for my mom for mother's day. :thumbup:

I called the manufactuter. For my Kenmore I called Sears and had a walking foot within days. Cost about $20

I paid $20 for one for my Pfaff and then found out I can change the needle position and guide at the edge of my regular foot. Another thing you can do is measure from the needle 1/4 inch and put down a think layer of tape to use as a guide. Painter tape (the blue stuff) works well and doesn't leave a mess behind when you take it up.

Go to your Sears store, and order the Kenmore attachments on their computer. Delivery is free, and the attachments fit Viking machines at a 1/3 of the cost.

This paticular site you can get the walking foot with quilter bar, 1/4" seam foot, darning foot and cloth guide all for $24.99!
