For Sir John I chose a cording foot, a wide groove beading foot (great for fluffy yarn) and a Teflon foot,
a free motion couching foot (I have wanted this for a while, but it is not available for my other machines) and a ¼” AccuFeed foot to go with the walking foot.
For the sisters I chose a clear view quilting foot, a border guide foot (for stitching parallel decorative stitching lines) and a button foot. I have never attached buttons by machine, but the foot may come in handy.
I have issues with the regular ¼” foot on one of my machines, it is impossible to position the needle in the right place without hitting the foot, so a friend lent me her clear view foot. The opening in this foot is bigger so that I can get a more accurate ¼” seam and also comes with a guide for stitching in the ditch.
I still have to change the needle position every time, but with a picture on my phone reminding me which setting to chose, I don’t have to figure it out over and over and over again.
I do this every time I use a special stitch and have to stop – take a picture of the project, and then a picture of the setting. I am going to add all my stitch pictures to a new album on my phone so that I don't have to look through all the pictures in search of the right project.
The feet I use the most are the ¼” foot for piecing, and the walking foot and darning foot for quilting; how about you, which are your favourites?
