Hello, I'm trying to find a foot used on a recent Quilting Daily showing.  It looked like a large roller and only used one set of feed dogs.  It made it easy to to many stitches on curves with out having to stop to make turns.  Does anyone have an idea what it is called and where it can be found.  She mentioned it had a low shank, and it was used a lot to sew leather and used a lot in the making of gloves as it can make curves with out raising your pressure foot and turn.  Hope someone knows what this is as I am dying to get one as I do lots of small stuff and it would be a big help.

The Roller Foot has a large roller on the front of it.  Here is a link to a picture: http://www.sew4home.com/tips-resources/sewing-tips-tricks/accessories-we-love-roller-foot-velvet-more

You're right, Muppin; that roller foot is quite handy but the foot Libby Lehman used in episode 1106 of "Quilting Arts TV" (which is what I think Bonita is referring to) is called a leather roller foot.  According to Libby, Bernina is the only manufacturer that offers it; it is #55.

Happy quilting!

I found the Big roller foot on Bernina's site and dealer stores. It is Foot #55 and is an exclusive for Bernina machines. :(

I was hoping to find one for my Babylock. Oh well, I have to wait then.

And here I thought I was the only one who noticed that presser foot.... ! I had to have it, but just like Cristy 13, I found that this particular foot is only for the Bernina, sigh! I have a Brother. We will have to wait, Sisters!

Is it low shank and will it fit a brother or singer machine? Thanks.

Hi Eyarm,

Your best bet is to check with Brother or Singer--look at their website or check your owner's manual.

Good luck!
