I have a Brother HS-2000 Project Runway Limited Edition machine.

I purchased a SA129 Clear Quilting Foot (Screw on Foot), which I researched to make sure it was compatible with my machine.

Problem is, I can't get the darned thing on!

I've Googled it and came up with nothing. I'm assuming the fact that it's a 'screw on foot' means that I'll need to disassemble something...but no one will tell me what.

Can anyone help? I'm anxious to get started FMQing...but can't til I get this foot on!

Thanks in advance!

Rachel On mine I have to take off the entire foot and then attach the darning foot to the machine the little bar should go on top of the needle bolt which makes it go up and down, there should be alittle bracket on the left side that wraps around the bar hanging down for your foot .that hold the bolt.then you tighten it down. Let me know if this helps or not and I can take a picture for you to see if ours are similar.Barbara

You shouldn't need to disassemble anything.   My quilting foot for my Viking looks like yours.  There is a little arm on mine that needs to go over the horizontal shaft that you use to screw in the needle.

I have to remove the thingy that holds my feet on, unscrew it,  then screw in the quilting foot, it is tricky to get the arm into position.    I hope this helps you.   You could try contacting Brother for instructions or go to a brother dealer.

Barbara, this is fabulous! Thank you so much!

I was watching Leah Day and she said she just sets the stitch length to 0, but never drops her feed dogs. I haven't watched the video on WHY she doesn't drop them, but was wondering if you've had any issues with dropping them to do FMQ.

Thank you for the pictures - they're a GODSEND!

Rachle I think she drops her pressure foot to zero that drops thefeed dogs down some but not all the way I have a pressure control on my janome ,but not on my brother ,you may have one on yours since mine is an older machine. Barbara

I have tried setting my stitch to 0 and not dropping the feed dogs and didn't like it as well.  It seemed like I was meeting some resistance when I tried to move my quilt.
