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.

Second one
March 12, 2015

I am still a beginner at sewing..I bought a Project run way one four years ago and loved it! but my kids dropped it during a move and it broke..so I bought this one to replace it. I love all that came with it and all the really cool stitches.. But I have only had it for a year and half.. When you sew with it won't keep the thread tight I have tried every setting and it does the same thing the table don't stay on it the font is to small and now the needle threader wont pull the thread through.. I am very disappointed in it. I am giving three stars because I love brother just not this machine.

Really love my machine
March 11, 2015
By mustj1 from Indiana
I have recently started sewing again. I owned another Brother in the past but didn't use it much but it worked fine. I still have it. I've had this machine for over a year and it is great! I have started quilting and am considering stepping up to another Brother for quilting and maybe embroidery. We have owned Brother products for office use (i.e. printers) and all have been reliable.

Great Purchase for Price
November 5, 2014
By SewingFun
My very old Singer sewing machine finally broke. Decided I'd try a Brother based on reviews and friends recommendations. So glad I did! It was so easy to start sewing right out of the box. The video was great but the booklet is very easy to follow and understand too. Couldn't believe I got all of the features for this price. Very happy with my purchase!

By catwrangler from Gardnerville,NV
I am making my first quilt with this machine and am very happy with it. The variety of stitches is great. It's an easy machine to work and have had no problems at all. Unpacked the machine from the box and within 15 minutes was sewing away.
The only con to the machine is the noisy bobbin. Maybe a metal bobbin would help instead of plastic.
