I am beginner too. I used hat magnetic Seam Guide and it didn't work in my machine. yes it stuck but it wouldn't stick where I wanted it (does this make sense?) I try the piece of masking tape along on the guide line and it worked better. It also takes practice and low speed. Good luck.
Hmmm I've used it on all 5 of my machines (don't ask! LOL) and I know lots of other mamas that use them, too, without a problem! I'm not sure what the issue is, as it always stays right in place for me.
I did forget to mention that there is also a screw-in variety. Most machines have a little screw hole just to the right of the presser foot which a seam guide can be inserted into. Come to think of it, my new Elna came with one that actually attached to the shank of the foot. It's pretty primitive though and I don't like it.
