SA125 1/4" Piecing Foot

For quilt and patchwork piecing with 1/4" or 1/8" seam allowances. 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.

SA129 Free Motion Foot, clear

This clear plastic foot raises and lowers with the needle to allow fabric to be moved between stitches and to hold fabric in place while stitches are created. Screw on clear plastic foot has markings for easy reference. Requires Low Shank Adapter for ULT/PC series. Also known as a Darning Foot and may be used as a free motion foot.

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.

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.

X52800150 Single Bobbin

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great first time sewing machine! When I first became interested in quilting I assumed I would need a pricey machine with a gazillion features. A gal from Bible study offered to teach me and before long I made my first quilt (and many more!) on this awesome little machine. I really thought a machine for such a low price would be "cheaply" built, but to my surprise I am able to sew many things I never dreamed of. The SQ-9000 in strong, powerful, and reliable -- not to mention versatile as well! Someday I will buy a more advanced sewing machine from Brother, but til that day I will be happy using this powerhouse of a machine.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Complete garbage! This machine sucks! Thread jams in it ALL the time, cant get more then 5 stitches in and it jams up. Ive adjusted the tension to all different tensions, etc. Awful! The different design options are nice though they are only 1 size which is disappointing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonder gift from my Son My Son gave me this machine 18 months before he got married. I put it through a work out with preparations for his wedding. 14 wedding outfits and one veil later it's still going strong. Not to mention all the quilts it has helped me make with the group of volunteers at our local hospital for people in hospice and new born babies. It just keeps going and does a great job too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic machine! I have owned this machine for a couple of years now. I would not hesitate to buy another one. I recommend this machine every chance I get, it's that good.
