View Full Version : mama has a piping foot!!!

April 3rd, 2015, 02:51 PM
MM stopped at the shop by his work and picked one up, plus a dozen bobbins.......didn't even cost $13 for everything! I still can't believe the other shop told me it was $106.46......crikey!

Excited to try it out now!

Love new gadgets! I was replacing a cushion for my couch and one wanted $600 and I got it for $50 somewhere else. No lie, It was like WTF. lol

I just used it practicing......I will never buy packaged piping again! So much better than using a zipper foot! I even sewed it between two pieces of fabric and it turned out perfect!!

WOW - I'm EGG-cited for you!

Now that I think of it, I have a piping foot for my HV but have never used it.

It's a wonderful thing! Best part was I didn't pay $106.46 for it!

I thought you were going to sing "Mama's Got a Brand New Bag"! :)

Puhleeze!!!! Mama rarely gets to keep a bag! If I hadn't insisted several times to several people that the mustache bag was mine, it would have been gone a long time ago!

I'm sending MM to buy all of my stuff from now on!

WAIT!!! WHAT!!! How can that be? Is it the exact same foot and same bobbins? How did he manage to find it for such a different price? Is it a no-name brand that just happens to fit?

I'm with Rebecca on this - inquiring minds need to know!!
I was pricing a piping foot for my machine and the lowest I could find was about $28 (which isn't horrible...); I'd be willing to buy generic for a piping foot - no mechanics involved ;)

The bobbins are identical. As for the piping foot, I do not know. None of my feet have markings, this one included. I had never seen one before in my life. As to whether it's generic, I have no clue. All I know is it works, it's solidly made and it makes me happy!!

I'd definitely be doing the happy dance!

Pat's new foot - just for Dolores.

Sandy - will you please warn us not to have orange juice in our mouth when we start to read something you post?

Oh, Sandy! I have tears running down my face! That's too funny.
Deloris, I'm like you, I'd like to see a pic of the foot - from Pat.

Pat's new foot - just for Dolores.

good thing I wasn't drinking anything. Could be Pat's, but I bet hers is much larger. :)
