This thing fell out while I was sewing along and I can't figure out where to put it back in. Can anyone check to see where this might go? I at first thought it was the presser foot screw, but this machine has a clamp.

I'm a bit leery of continuing to sew without it.

Looks like the screw that goes in at the back of the presser foot. Mine fall out now and then, too. It's to hold the guide bar.

These screws do seem to fall out. I have several feet that I just removed them, and put in a little compartment with my feet. If I want to use the guide with that foot, I will put it back only while using the guide. Keeps my frustration level down.

It's just to hold the guide bar in if you use it. It's right on the back of the foot. Not necessary to sew with unless you're using that.

Thanks you guys! (That's embarrassing!)

I think I will leave it out too. I can just see a dog swallowing it or something if I don't grab it fast enough.

My parrot will do that too if I don't watch out!

HAHA! I didn't mention the parrots, but yes. I have an African Grey who will try to eat anything.
