    I've become such a fan of using a walking foot that I really missed it when I used my wee Featherweight last weekend. Does anyone know if there is an aftermarket walking foot that will fit on a Featherweight? The one I have for my Janome doesn't fit.

    I undestand there is a walking foot the the FW, but I don't know more than that now. I am taking a FW course and the instructor mentioned it at our first class last week. We won't meet again until May, but I think I can email her and ask about this.

    Any low shank foot will work on the Feartherweight. If yours doesn't fit you can buy a generic at the LQS. :thumbup:

    Kathie, didn't you say the belt was also broken? What did the repairman say about the belt?

    I did not mention the belt. I am going to take the machine to E and D and see what they have to say about it. Cletus can put the belt on the machine for me. Kathie

    LOL You know I have a real close friend that his shop is called "Skunk Works"

    No its the era that I should have been in all this time.........

    Billy
    In a previous life, I had a friend with a studio called "Skunk Bottom Pottery". (He lived on the Skunk River.)
    I would like to live in Area 51. Actually, I'd rather be a time traveler. I could sneak back to 1960 and start collecting machines then.

    Whew, that makes me feel better. I thought maybe you could all read my mind. And then you'd all run screaming from the shop.
    I had to quit working on the basement and clean on the upstairs for a while, but when I get back to it, I'll excavate the Pfaff and take some pictures.
