I just got a Singer L-500 and I was wondering since it's the same machine as the pfaff c1100pro whether the pfaff clear 1/4 foot would fit the singer l-500? Looking at pictures of the two,...

Singer Quantum L-500...thoughts?

I'm wondering how I didn't know this machine existed. It seems to have all the features I want. Bigger harp space, thread cutter, knee lift, free arm, dual feed, and it's faster then my current...

I'll do the bobbin drop test tonight when I get home from work. Am I going to mess anything up by tightening it? What on earth could have made it loosen on its own?

Also, when I adjust the...

Tension problem out of the blue...help!

So in the middle of piecing a quilt, my top thread became a straight line with bobbin thread loops on top. So either my top tension suddenly became too tight, or my bobbin tension became too...

Covers anything replacement of anything that goes wrong within 2 years, and also covers the cost of labor/parts. So it basically gives you an extra year of free labor on top of the Janome warranty. ...

I did consider the pfaff QE4. I saw some scary reviews about this model when it first came out (mostly about shredding thread and a defective take up). The main thing I didn't like about this model...
