Here's an interesting tidbit I picked up from my Sewing Daily Newsletter:
"And here is a little known—but my new favorite—use for the walking foot: topstitching on knits. You no longer have to watch the knits creep and bunch as you topstitch seams, finish neck edges, or stitch up the hems. I learned this trick from Linda Lee of The Sewing Workshop and now can’t imagine working with knits without my walking foot." written by Rose Deboer.

The full article is here.

Yes, the walking foot is a favorite of alot of sewists, me included. I make many knit garments and it is great to have. Glad you have discovered it.

I have a walking foot and have used it a few times. My Elna 5100 does a great job without it on MOST knits...but I will attach it if the knit is tricky to sew with the reg foot.

Thanks for sharing. I do have problems with some knits and never thought to use my walking foot. I'll try it out.
Thanks again.
