Hello Tamanna! I am sorry for the inconvenience. I am not showing that we have a flower stitch foot that is noted as compatible for your machine. However, I am showing that your machine is a low shank. We do have a generic low shank flower stitch foot that could work, we are just not able to guarantee that it will fit. You could return it for a refund if it did not work, you would just be responsible for the return shipping cost. You can view that foot via the link below:

I hope this helps!

I watch your videos all the time, they are very clear and informative. I have a Singer Simple 3337 and have just purchased the flower presser foot. I can get flowers which look nice but sometimes as it is sewing and going to the right of the design it is making a clunking sound. I have removed the foot and tested my machine on all the stitches which worked fine. Any idea what the problem is?

Thanks

Hi! You will to measure and mark out a grid with chalk. The chalk lines will be the outside of your flower design. Test positioning on some scraps until you get the hang of it.

I have a Brother I400 sewing machine. I have the flower stitch foot on my machine and have gotten it to sew in a circle, but can’t get it to make the points or loops on the flowers. What am I doing wrong?

Hi, Florence! Can you send me a picture of how you have the foot installed on your machine? info@sewingpartsonline.com

Hello,

Will this work on the Bernina Activa 220? And the Pfaff Ambition 1.0?

Thank you!

Sarah August 23, 2017 - 9:02 am

Hi, Charla! Unfortunately, this foot is not compatible with either of those machines. You can try to use the low shank adapter attachment and then install the flower stitch foot, but I can’t guarantee it will fit perfectly.

The directions that came with my flower stitch foot say to put your tension at zero. But you make no mention of this.

Reply
Sarah August 22, 2017 - 8:40 am

Hi, Barbara! I don’t think I reduced my tension to zero when I used mine, but I can’t remember. It’s been a minute since I’ve used it. I may have significantly lowered the tension.

Hi, Rosa! The QuantumCXL can be a bit fickle. I can’t guarantee that it will fit, but if it doesn’t you can return the foot.

[…] How to Use a Flower Stitch Foot – Sewing Parts Online Blog Ok, she says you can use any "zig zag-esque" foot. The tricot stitch is the triple side to side zig zag. you can't use the serpentine and other fancy stitches, just stitches based on the zig zag.
