Hi Sarah, Thanks for sharing the roller foot tutorial. I just watched the walking foot video you did. When do you use the walking foot instead of roller foot? Does thickness make a difference as to which you use?

PS Just bought a serger hemming foot from Sewing Parts, anxious to get & try. Do you have a video for that? Thank you

Hi, Nelly! You are exactly correct – use a Walking Foot instead of a Roller Foot when you have bulky layers and thick fabric.
We have videos for most of the feet, but I’m confused on exactly which hemmer foot you ordered. Do you remember the link? Or your order number?

Hi Sarah, I love your videos! Is there much a difference between the roller foot versus the silicon foot?

Hi Rita! They both work pretty much work the same, however I prefer to use the Teflon/Silicone Foot for heavier suede/lether/vinyl/rubber, where as the roller foot excels more with lighter suede. In general, they are pretty much the same.

Hi Lizzie! You can use any low shank feet and any snap on feet with your Brother. All of our videos are done on a low shank Brother, so if we have a video for it, you can use it on your machine.
