On PBS September 5 Fons and Porter demonstrated couching on the sewing machine. I would love to find the pressure foot they used, it made it look quite simple. I've searched the web but having no success. This pressure foot automatically feed the cord. It was featured for Let's Make a Cake #1312. Any help would be appreciated.

it, I believe, is called a cording foot - they come in different sizes - for 3, 5 or 7 cords... You can buy them from your local sewing center for your specific machine... I believe Nancy's notions sells them in their notions section for all the machines.

here is a video I found about another machine and the couching foot... maybe this is what you are needing???

and here is a generic cording foot sold at sears

Welcome to QCA, RJ - or is it CJ, or maybe it's RJCJ! Whatever, welcome. Sorry I don't have an answer, but I think Thea covered it pretty well.

Thea, you are such a wealth of information!

I think if this foot was seen on F&B, then it must be a Bernina and would be available at any Bernina dealership if that's the type of machine you have.  I have a wish list of many types of feet after watching F&P, but they aren't cheap!

No feet definitely are not cheap but are available for less money on ebay then you will pay at your dealership.  so check there once you find out what foot it is that you want.
