Someplace I read about a clear foot for the BLCS machine but can not find the post.
The BabyLock website does not show a clear foot for this machine.
A clear foot would be so nice.
I called the closest dealer but the clerk didn't know anything about cover stitch machines but is going to call the company and find out.

Here's what it looks like.
I bought one last year for my Evolution and it's great for coverstitching.
Just can't remember at the moment where I bought it (it was an online source).
I'll post back when I can find the site.
Actually, I just looked at mine and it is a bit different from that image, probably because it's for the Evolution.

Here's the foot for the BLCS only model. BLCS clear foot I have one now and leave it on all the time.

You could try here.
I'm sure that's where I got mine.
I think the image I posted above is not for the coverstitch machine. I think what you want is the one in the post after mine. That's what mine looks like.

Thanks everyone. I called my dealer back and gave her the number for the foot.
I want that foot.
I have not used my CS machine much and decided I just need to sit down with it and start playing till I get use to it.
So many women love this machine and use it all the time so it is a waste for me to have this machine and not use it.

If I get a binder which one should I get? 8mm, 10mm or 15mm?

Clear feet are available for each model. I leave one on my Imagine Wave and one on my BLCS all of the time. I can't think of a reason to put those metal feet back on when I can see what I'm doing so much better with the clear feet! Worth every penny.

I purchased all three when I got my machine and haven't used them. The ones from Babylock ( which I have are very expensive) , you can purchase identical ones from Sharp Sewing and they are 1/3 the price. They also have Babylock accessories for the sergers and coverstitch machines.

Finally got around to using my cover stitch machine using the clear foot. It is so much easier to see what I am doing.

So glad I bought it. I had to call another dealer as the 1st dealer I called never called me back. The dealer I called next was great. The gal called to tell me the foot was in and she was coming my way for a meeting and offered to drop it off at my house. she lives about 2 hours away. In the end she mailed it as our schedules didn't mesh up. That's what I call a great dealer.
