What is it and how do you attach it to your machine?

Your machine must be designed to accomodate one, many are but not all. The most basic beginner machines usually cannot accept a walking foot.

Most screw on in the same place as the foot, for those with the snap on/off feet the bit that screws on to hold those feet is the part that gets removed to place the walking foot.

Thank you so much! I think my machine is a very basic machine so it may not accomodate one. I looked in the manual and it only made mention of the zig zag foot which is on the machine.

I appreciate your response. I'm looking into a new machine...since I now have the sewing bug after only sewing for 2 weeks. I've had  a machine for 3 years and never used it.

Keep using it, get a good chunk of your beginner practice out of the way on that machine. Then, when you are doing things the machine isn't up to, you can look for the right kind of upgrade. Smiley

Thanks Penlowe. I will do just that! It's so easy to get ahead of yourself once you become eager, excited and ADDICTED! Grin

Some machines even have built in IDT feet which are basically walking feet.  They basically feed the top fabric through much like your feed dogs feed the bottom fabric through.  Using these usually give a nice even feed, esp to fabrics that tend to stretch or pucker as you sew.
