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.


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 4 out of 5 by from Great machine for the price! Purchased my machine at Costco a year ago. It's my first machine ever and I love it! My bobbin jammed on the bottom and my automatic threader stopped working, unfortunately. I tried switching out the needle, but it's not the needle. It's the spring I think. So now I hand thread it. Not sure how to fix, but it's not a big deal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my Brother 3240 w Quilting feet & Table Bought mine at Costco. Love it! Includes quilting foot & wide table. 9 feet are worth a lot. Quick reference guide and DVD are very helpful. Dust cover included is a great value as well. Choice of manual / foot operations or on panel controls. Stitch selection screen is very legible. Quick set bobbin & needle thread assist are great features. Great product and great buy! I use it to piece simple, cheerful quilts for Project Linus. Win/Win!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Far exceeded my expectation I have used this machine to make everything from heavy-weight canvas covers for my husband's PA system speakers, amplifiers, and photography equipment, to flannel burp cloths for babies to a sheer wrap for a mother-of -the-bride dress for friend to wear at her daughter's wedding. I've also completed several quilting projects, some that included some very detailed embroidery features. With every project, this machine has exceeded my expectations.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Needle threader My auto threader worked since I purchase my machine. Today I broke my first needle. I replaced it and went to thread my needle and when I pull the lever all the way down the auto threader does not rotate to fit around the needle. It gets stuck. I've messed with it for hours and I can't fix it. My feed dogs also keep eating my fabric against my best effforts. This can't all be because I broke a needle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy purchase Bought at Costco after researching and talking with other owners. Machine has not disappointed at all. Very happy with purchase and functionality of machine. Needle threader works great, just have to follow instructions. Manual is well written too. Will be my travel/retreat machine and frequent machine at home. Recommended to my friend and she has bought one too.
Date published: 2016-12-11
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Machine I too purchased this machine at Costco. Everything about it is wonderful. I've made several little projects for babies and am currently working on a quilt. The price was just too good; I couldn't pass it up! Oh and my auto thread works fine, just for the record.
Date published: 2016-11-27
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works fine - as specifications show Purchased at Costco, and so far every feature works as advertised. The product overview of features indicates - Advanced easy needle threading system, and it works just great. I used the buttonholer and did characters today as well. The characters is fairly difficult, but I don't plan to use that feature often anyway. With practice I am sure it will become easier.
Date published: 2016-11-21
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Auto threader does not work any ideas The auto threader which is the reason that I bought this machine does not work an hour and a half later it still does not work. Do not consider this easy or friendly to use
