The Brother 1/4" Piecing Foot with Guide is used for piecing quilts together or topstitching. It can sew an accurate 1/4" or 1/8" seam allowance and features reference marks on 3 sides of the foot to help you form perfect seams and turn corners.
The easy-to-attach snap-on foot makes the interchange quick and easy. The design of the foot helps to expand the presser foot area against the fabrics as a centred straight stitch is sewn, and prevents the fabric from shifting. For easy reference, the front of the foot narrows to the quarter-inch measurement.
How to use:
1. Snap on the presser foot and select a centre straight stitch.
2. With right sides together, place two pieces of fabric and line up the edges of the fabric to the fabric guide of the presser foot.
3. Start stitching.
Compatible with all Brother models (5mm and 7mm).
Great Foot, But Have Some Extra Needles HandyBy: Igor on 28 April 2022The foot is well-designed, solidly built, and is great for getting those 1/4" piecing seams just perfectly right. Unfortunately, it looks somewhat similar to the 'G' (overlocking) foot that comes with my machine, so I have already gone through a couple of needles due to not paying proper attention, and picking up the wrong foot. As this foot requires the needle to be in the 'center' position, if the needle happens to be either in the left or right, it will break... It would have been nice to have a distinctive mark - eg. a red dot - on the foot, to make it not so easily confused with other (more forgiving) ones...
