    I have a Brother 1500D. Can you please tell me if this is compatible with my machine as I have the chance of getting one from an acquaintance.

      Hi Dawn, the foot only fits machines with a low shank. I’m not familiar with your machine so if you’re not sure what type of shank it has call your local dealer and they should be able to tell you.

    I just recently acquired a flower foot and have been playing. 1 problem. The needle does not pick up the bobbin stitch on the right side bite on the widest stitches. My machine width bite goes from # 1 to #7. There is no problem until I try to go wider than 3.5. What do I have to do?

    Found your site when I googled the flower stitch foot from the thread studio news letter. Very creative- I’m creating a shortcut to your site & will be back to explore more of your site.

    When I bought the flower stitch foot from Thread Studio it had a note in Dale Rollersons instruction pamphlet that some machines needed an attachment. My Bernina needed a low shank adapter. After purchasing this I had a lot of fun with the flower stitch foot. There a lot of ideas in Dales Book and thanks for drawing my attention to Valeri Campbell Hardings book…it has been on the shelf for years and was amazed at the ideas it contains!

    I bought this Flower attachment at the Birmingham National Patchworks Exhibition. Saw a demo at the stand, just hope it works as good. Looking forward to trying it, wish me luck.
    I like your idea of the water soluble fabric. The demonstrator was using a bonded calico so it went round while stitching no bother, but wondered if it would be successful with just a piece of ordinary calico – obviously not. It needs a stiffener.

      Hi Audrey, I hope you have fun with your flower foot. Because it only makes small circles you may find that you don’t need stabilizer underneath the fabric. However if the fabric starts to pucker, then add a bit of stabilizer underneath and the stitching will look much better.
