Actually, there is quite a bit of difference. The 34C has a narrower

sole and does not have the cutout that the 39/39C offers. The 39/39C

also offers a small hole in the front of the foot that allows you to

thread cords, etc. and then stitch over them; the wedge shaped thread

indentation is needed to accommodate the cord and/or any satin stitching

you might choose to do. Foot #39/39C also offers some additional red

marks for help with alignment of stitches.

I would not want to be without either foot. :-)

Thanks for that explanation. In the name of thrift, I may have to give the 39 a go before running out to get a 34, although I see where it would give more stability.

Now I'm puzzled about the difference between a 1c and 40c. I think both came with the machine, and except for the slice to make running the threads under the foot easier, I can't tell the difference, can you? I sure hope I didn't buy that 40C, not with that fine a difference :-|

The 9mm models that offer sideways motion stitches should come with the

40C so I think you're safe in knowing you didn't purchase it. ;-)

It is a good foot to own if you do any of the directional stitches. It

has a tiny bit more beveling than the 1C does that allow those stitches

to pass from side to side. It's also nice that it doesn't have the

thread escape as that can be problematic with stitches that move in many

directions.

If you do use the 39 instead of the 34, be sure and measure because

you'll need to use a different needle position or place your fabric

somewhere other than the edge of the foot since the sole is slightly

larger on the 39.
