    You're not the only one .... I forgot and left mine on and found it worked just fine. In fact, I do better with the 1/4" seam with the walking foot on as I use specific parts on the foot as my sewing guide.
    Learning something new everyday from all of you.

    Wish I had one that was on automatically. I love using it but it is tiresome switching back and forth. Didn't know there was a machine that had one built in!

    Me too.

    My new machine is a Babylock Crescendo. The walking foot is huge and must be plugged into the machine for the machine's computer to operate. I don't use it often because the Crescendo seems to feed both layers evenly--even when quilting straight lines.

    I have the built in on my Janome and I use it most of the time.

    I just used mine for the 1st. time. I love it. I wished I would have tried it out sooner. I need to heed more to what I learn on here. You guys are a wealth of knowledge.

    I leave my walking foot on when sewing thicker projects, like binding potholders, SID or straight line quilting and especially when making bags that have the fusible fleece, as I think it does a better job. If I just have a little sewing to do and don't want to bother taking the foot off and on, I will just use the walking foot, but I use it mainly for quilting.

    I guess having one built in, is something I will make sure my new machine has.

    The Jerome 6600 has a built in walking foot that is also easy to disengage

    Ditto....I bring out my old Pfaff 7510 and it doesn't slip one bit when sewing the "sandwich". Love it.
