Hey there!

So after not properly doing my homework, I realized that my new Brother SE-400 machine didn't actually come with a free-motion foot. I was wondering if I have to actually purchase this foot, or if I could use one of the other included feet to do this, provided I drop the feed dogs first. I have the following feet for the machine: buttonhole foot, overcasting foot, zipper foot, button fitting foot, monogramming foot, blind stitch foot, embroidery foot.

Anybody with thoughts/experience on the subject? Thanks in advance.

PS: I absolutely LOVE this machine, by the way, for anyone considering getting it. I updated from the basic 25-stitch Brother machine ($75 from Walmart), and this has been the best investment ever. The embroidery functions are idiot-proof, it stitches well, and has all sorts of neat features that I had never used before. Love it!

A free motion foot is specific to free motion quilting.  It usually has a spring and kind of hops across the fabric. It does not put pressure and hold the fabric like a regular foot will.

I have just come along your thread, so I don't know if you are still wanting info, but after googling your machine, it looks like you won't need one.
