Welcome, Lisa :-) QCA is a great place to share, get help & have fun - you've already discovered that just by saying hello!
My first machine (as an adult) was a Kenmore - can't remember if it had a darning foot or not. If you can't find your manual, you could try looking up the model online & might find info on it that way, including what attachments are available. You could also check at a Sears - someone in the sewing machine area should be able to help.
Welcome to QCA Lisa.
Welcome Lisa. Baby quilts are so much fun and since they are small it doesn't take a year to finish. I know you will enjoy every step-well most of them anyway. Let us know how the quilt is going. We love to see pictures of the blocks etc and then the finished quilt. Quilting is so much fun. It takes my mind off other things. I'm even learning to relax with it. I hope you have as much fun as the rest of us. Nice to meet you. Bettie from North Central PA.
I think I know where my manual is, but I'm curious why I would want to use a darning foot for free motion quilting. What is the advantage of a darning foot over my regular foot?
the best thing to do would be to try them both. they have specific uses, one for straight (or zigzag) stitching and one for free motion which is what darning is.
Lisa, the darning foot is usually an open toe foot so that you could see where you are going doing the free motion.
