SA171 Gathering Foot for PQ Series

The Gathering Foot can be used for lightly gathering fabric as well as attaching the gathered edge to a flat (ungathered) fabric, at the same time quickly and easily.The gathering foot will allow the sewer to gently ease or slightly gather fabric for various garment and home decorating applications.

SA173 Heavy Weight Foot for PQ Series

The Heavy Weight presser foot has a larger "foot print" that assures better contact of the fabric to the feed dogs. Therefore it can be used to aid in the proper feed of canvas, fake fur, lace or quilted fabric beautifully without applying extra or excessive pressure to the presser bar and on to the fabric.

SA170 Spring Action Guide 3 Set for PQ Series

The SA170 set, was adapted especially for use on the Brother PQ-series machines and includes three sizes - 2mm, 5mm(1/4th inch), and 8mm. These convenient feet are equipped with durable metal guides that hold the fabric securely for perfect edge-stitching and topstitching, yet are equipped with spring action for easy transition to standard sewing.The guides are self leveling, there is no need to change feet to change sewing operations. These feet are inspired by the industrial compensating feet.

SA172 Very Narrow Foot for PQ Series

The SA172 narrow foot while offering a good surface to maintain contact with the feed dogs, can slip into very small areas. It's that foot we wish we had for those tight corners, working up against a ridge, or other similar situations. This foot is a must have for applying piping or zipper insertion for your home decor, craft and fashion sewing projects.


SA159 Bobbins, metal, 5-pack for PQ Series

Metal Bobbins for PQ1300/1500, PR 600 and 1000 series

Work horse / easy to use
March 30, 2014
By Becca from Sykesville, Md.
This review is going to be a comparative one my first purchase was a Brother cs6000i very good machine easy to use lots of feet. but I do quilting so it is described as a quilting machine but it's not for the serious quilter. I hade it for a year and had to get it honed down. So I purchased the Brother Designio DZ1500F let me tell you it is a work horse and it's just as easy to use as the other. Pro's heavier machine. Large throat, bright light, regular thread holder and one for the large cones. Easy to follow diagrams for the feed dogs and tension. Love the auto thread cutter, both had the auto needle threader the one on the DZ1500F is so much easier to use I had to fumble around with the other to get it to thread but this one is the first time 98%. large motor it doesn't bog down when quilting thick fabrics. I like it for free motion quilting too it does a great job on the stitch quality, the knee lift is so handy when your free motion quilting too, I haven't used the felter attachment yet but I can't wait. The warranty is longer that the other brother too. The only Con I can think of is that it's only one kind of stitch but I knew that going in and when your a quilter that's the only stitch you use.
