    In my photo, the semi-circular part the feed dog comes up through and the needle goes down through is the needle plate/throat plate.

    The feed dog is the piece that moves the fabric.

    Depending on your machine the plate that the needle passes threw might be available with a single hole instead of a slot. Less room for material to get pushed threw. This is called a throat plate or needle plate. May not be available on your machine. Good luck.

    I will see if I can get one for it. I am surprised though to see how darn expensive the feet are. I am seeing something like $15 for one foot. 😳

    The 132 will use standard "low shank" feet like this straight stitch foot. What kind of foot are you looking for?

    I wasn't sure WHAT to look for. That is why I asked. I am not sure what people used and for what purpose. Now I am thinking toward a 1/4 stitch, rolled hem foot and a straight stitch. My biggest problem with the all purpose one is that when I am trying to stitch close to the edge it has a habit of rolling the hem a little and bunching it up.
