The best 1/4" foot for a Brother sewing machine, by far
, November 23, 2010
Finally! A Brother foot that sews a true scant 1/4" seam! Hallelujah!
I got this foot yesterday, and I am amazed at how easily I can now sew a scant 1/4" seam, every time. I easily sewed a perfectly matched star for the first time without stretching and pulling or easing the blocks just to make the seams match.
I have the Brother SA125 foot, and the Distinctive version of this foot, which looks just like it, and I couldn't make either of them work. The SA125 may be good for some Brother machines, but mine doesn't have a right needle position, so I always had to guess where to place the fabric to get a 1/4" seam. To use the SA 125 on my machine, you have to glide the fabric just a little bit to the left of the right edge of the presser foot, which means you can't see what you're doing. It's maddening. I wonder if Brother is now making this SA 185 to work with cheap-o machines like mine, without right needle positions, because the SA 125 doesn't work with them.
The Distinctive doesn't give you a reliable 1/4" because the bar is too loose (at least mine is), so it's inconsistent.
This Brother SA 185 makes it truly easy to piece together blocks. I'm so relieved to have found it.
