    Where to purchase

    Where is a good place to purchase a 1/4"foot. I have a brother XL3750. I know I can get one from Brother, but they are so expensive. If anyone can point me in the right direction, I would be grateful!

    I got two different ones from amazon...they actually ship from kens sewing center. Both are great...one was $11 and the other $17. They are both snap on and fit my singer, brother and janome.

    eBay... I bought mine from here. They look like my other brother feet. They claim they are genuine. I don't know if they really are but mine work great.

    I also have a Brother and I buy a lot of the special extra feet, etcetera from sewingwarehouse.com. Not only do they have excellent prices, but their customer service is outstanding!! They also ship quickly.

    I've noticed that if labeled Janome, the feet that interchange with Brother are less expensive.
    Got fabric?

    My Wal-Mart carries the 1/4" foot. That's where I bought mine. If you have a WM near you check to see if they carry them. I paid less the $10 for mine.

    I have that same model, and the regular foot that came with it is 1/4", however, if you need to, you can use the numbered wheel on the right on top of the machine in order to adjust the needle position for a scant 1/4" or a generous 1/4". Have you tried that?

    I purchased one from Amazon several months ago for .97 (less than 1 dollar).
    Didnt NEED the foot as I already have one for each of my machines.

    If you would like I will send this to you at no charge. Just pm your address
    to me ( I can be trusted as I have the addresses for MANY (over 50) people
    from this board.

    I absolutely LOVE my little Brother XL-3750, so much so, that I got one just like it in FL!. It even comes with a walking foot and embroidery foot to use for free motion quilting! The "throat" area is small, so I do a lot of Quilt-as-you-go methods. I hope you enjoy yours as much as I do mine!

    I have to add that there are different kinds of 1/4" feet. A friend of mine bought one that reminded me of a zipper foot. Mine has a guide on the side and I love it. She returned the zipper foot looking one after using mine and she got the kind like mine. I want to say that she got it from Walmart or Hancocks or Joanns... Mine came with my machine

    I also have a foot with a guide on the right edge, however mine got caught on something and got sprung out of shape and I ended up sewing a 3/8" seam instead of a 1/4"....so may I just recommend you keep an eye on that guide.....I went back to my simple 1/4" foot.....
