unfortunately the bernia's are the only company that i'm aware of, where the stitch regulator is compatible in terms of home domestic machines.
There are the sweet sixteen quilting machine and babylock replica of the long arm machines which also have the stitch regulator.

It's just the matter of what you're trying to achieve with the machines.

Pfaff stitch regulator

No idea about this thing, and there's a Viking one too, I think. I don't do FM and don't plan to, especially since I found FM embroidery patterns one downloads and lets the machine stitch. Why should I do the work when my sm can do it, and better, lol

Pricey though!

I'd forgotten about the pfaff fabric mov er. Thanks for reminding me. It shows that it will only work on certain machines. I wondered if it relly does a good job. I haven't heard or seen anyone commenting on it.

There are stitch regulators around for the mid arm machines if you put them on a frame -- but, it does not sound like thats what you are looking for.

Bernina's foot is patented, so you won't see anything that works in a similar fashion for another decade or so.

For what it is worth, I find the BSR overrated. It is neat, but not for the price. Most people need practice, no need to spend so much for a regulator.

I also think with a little of time spent - FMQ is pretty easy.

I dont think that the speed of the BSR is really worth it. FMQ at 1000 spm is pretty slow.

I know people disagree, fine - but for me I think FMQ should be pretty fast.

My mom's Viking has a "Fabric Mover" which I guess is not a foot but more like the hoop that you see on the pic in the post above.

I have a Bernina with BSR - love that foot!!!

I'm not a terrible FMQ'er without the foot, but the foot makes this a lot more fun and easy. Is it worth $500? ... i think that's the going rate, not sure... Since I can FMQ without it, I probably wouldn't spend that much on it. I guess it depends how much disposable income you have and how often you would use it. I got mine as part of a package deal -- the SM, BSR, and embroidery altogether.
