Using the center needle, straight stitch position, the right front edge of this foot provides a guide for creating even ¼-inch seams for quilts, doll clothes and heirloom sewing projects. When using the left side of the foot as a guide, an 1/8-inch seam is created.

SA198 Adjustable Binder Foot

This foot has clear plastic bias tape guide. By adjusting this guide, users can sew various width bias tape from ¼” to ¾” (5mm to 20mm).

SA193 Candlewicking Foot

Add a beautiful, decorative touch resembling handsewn ‘knotted’ candlewicking to embellish pillows, table linens, bed linens, and clothing, or to stitch down appliqué shapes or ribbons. This candlewicking foot has a specially formed, deep tunnel on the underside, which allows the raised candlewicking stitches to pass under the foot easily, and helps prevent unwanted pressure on your finished stitches. Ideal not only for candlewicking stitches, but for other raised or 3-dimensional stitches, and for sewing with heavier cotton threads. For Use With: BC1000, CE4000, CE5000PRW, CE5500PRW, CE8080PRW, CP6500, CP7500, CS80, CS100T, CS5055PRW, CS6000i, CS8150, CS8060, CS6000T, CS8072, Duetta® 4500D, ES2000, EX660, HE120, HS1000, Innov-ís 40,

SA194 Pin Tuck Foot, 5-groove

This 5-groove pin tuck foot, when used with a twin needle, helps you to make virtually perfect pin tucks, and is also perfect for sewing corded pin tucks on shirts, blouses and many home decorating projects.

SA132 Quilting Guide

The adjustable guide can be used to sew parallel rows at preset even intervals. Slide straight bar into the hole of the presser foot ankle or walking foot (equipped with a mounting hole). The distance from the needle may be adjusted by sliding the guide from left to right.

SA190 Roller Foot

Perfect for sewing on vinyl, velvet, suede and leather fabrics. The dual rollers on this 7mm snap-on foot help provide for more accurate and consistent sewing, as the rollers work in tandem with the machine feed dogs to pull the fabric through, for a more consistent fabric surface. This foot has a wide needle opening, allowing for a range of stitch widths.

SA140 Walking Foot, 7mm

The walking foot is a moving feed system that holds and moves fabric between the presser foot's upper feed dog and the machine's lower feed dogs to better control difficult fabrics as well as multiple layers of fabric. The walking foot is great for sewing when matching prints or plaids or when fabric drift is an issue or quilting.

Brother® offers several Walking Feet which differ for the width of the feed dogs, shank height, etc. Please check your manual or the machine listings on this website to find the correct Walking Foot to fit your machine. Walking Feet are not for use in reverse or side to side sewing as well as some built-in stitches that include other than forward movement of the feed dogs.


SA156 Bobbins, clear plastic, 10-pack, 11.5 size

High Quality Clear Plastic Bobbins, 7/16" deep. Security notch for consistent bobbin thread winding. 10 bobbins per pack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It Stitches, It Quilts, I Love Brother CX205LA Brother CX205LA : I have been sewing for more than 50 years. I am extremely delighted with this Affordable, Light-weight machine. I Recommend this Machine to All Levels of sewers/quilters: Straight, Even Stitches; Excellent Choice of Stitch Selections; Quilting Foot provides straight, even stitches; Free Motion feature is one of the Easiest/Best I've used (I own other brands of expensive quilting machines); Extension Table works great; Easy to Wind Bobbin; Easy to Thread; Foot Pedal and Start/Stop Button are great for different projects; Needle Down Position is very useful; Warns if Pressure Foot isn't lowered for sewing; Light Weight so I can carry it easily. I was skeptical of it's quality because of the low cost and light weight, but I after using the Machine for Many Hours and Many types of Projects, I highly Recommend the CX205LA. The only items I miss on this machine is a pull-out carrying handle and cover case, but there is an indention on top which allows me to hold and carry machine. Five Stars! Thank you, Brother Sewing Machines!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brother Sewing Machine It's been about 25 years since I have done any real sewing. My old machine had too many issues to make any attempts fun, so treated myself to the Brother-CX205LA. I was pleased it fit into a cabinet I have had for years and accommodates all my needs. Finished my first new table runner. Machine has many decorative stitches. I am getting used to sewing without the foot pedal... though one does come with machine if that is your preference. Overall, everything was easy to set up. However, the automatic needle threader has been a hit and miss issue for me. I will keep trying. The machine offers a lot for the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sewing Machine Excellent machine - easy to use and quiet. Works very well with different thickness of fabrics. Since purchasing it was used to make a quilt and two dresses and hemmed a pair of jeans. I never owned a computerized machine and was afraid that it would be difficult to learn how to use. The instruction manual is very detailed and easy to follow. Very happy with this machine
