I am having a difficult time finding pressure feet for my Singer 4562 such as button hole, button sewing, embroidery, walking foot, quilting foot, etc.


You should be able to find presser feet for your machine as long as you know what type of shank your machine takes. Just confirm that whatever you choose will fit a Singer model 4562. You can even purchase a snap-on shank adapter and then purchase snap-on feet for your machine.

I have an Elnita 140 sewing machine and would like to obtain Presser Feet for it- can anyone help?


I am 90% certain that any low shank foot will fit this machine. Does your machine info plate say "made in Japan" or "made for Elna" anywhere? Is it about 30 years old? I'm pretty sure this was a "made under licence for" Elna Tavaro and that the machine is front loading bobbin model with pretty standard generic low shank feet; may be clip on too.

If this aligns with your machine, you should be able to buy low shank feet such as these at sewingpartsonline.com. Or if they are clip on, you can just buy the foot, not foot and ankle.

The Elnita name was also used on Swiss made machines such as the 17 ZZ and I think used again recently however so it can get confusing. You could ask Elna themselves; start at www.elna.com, then go to your country, then "contact us" page to find a phone number of email. I have found that contacting the manufacturer/distributor in your country is often best. Or look at the images of the feet on sewingpartsonline, see if they look like what you've got on the machine now and take a chance on buying one or asking them if it would fit.

What foot do I use for strraight stitching I have an Elna 3005 model sewing machine Thanks


Ideally you want a foot that looks like this with a very small hole where the needle goes down, to maximise the pressure onto the fabric. Just don't move the stitch setting to anything that swings the needle or you'll smash the needle onto the foot and risk damaging the machine.

But unless you are having issues with the fabric being pulled down into the feed dogs, the regular clear sewing foot should be fine for most work and is certainly easier to see what you are sewing.

tally_girl_69.jpg A lot of quilters go for a 1/4" foot too which gives you consistent 1/4" seam widths when piecing quilts. There is a excellent website on sewing machine feet and their different purposes, link is
http://sewmamasew.com/blog2/2009/06/feet-feet-feet/ and she has great images of 1/4" foot in use along with others such as Open Toed or Roller foot.

If you are shopping for different machine feet, you may like to look at www.sewingpartsonline.com, great website with lots of different brands. Your machine would be classified as a "low Shank" machine I think; often you can buy a generic brand foot which will work on different brand machines once you are sure of the shank type.

Most sewers find that there will be one foot they prefer to use for much of their work depending on their projects. My all time fav is the Elna Teflon foot, a black teflon coated foot which works great on many different fabrics; I've worn the black off the bottom of two of them!!

HI, I have an old Elna Stella, bought in Australia in 1983. The shank that holds the presser foot onto the column keeps slipping forward. This causes the needle to strike the presser foot at the back edge...


Are all your sewing feet in one piece that screw on? I'm struggling understanding what your foot is actually doing Lindy; is it because the nut loosens up quickly? or is it possible that the foot you are using is not an Elna foot?

Elna later changed to "Low Shank" clip on feet with the Air Electronic range and these should be interchangeable with your Stella. I found a good website for this, www.sewingpartsonline.com and he has the "Pressure Foot Shank" which is the later swissmade shank for the swiss made Elnas. I couldn't see a replacement screw to hold on the feet though but a sewing machine dealer might be able to track one down. Or try Ebay, still some swiss Elna stuff out there.

good luck

I need a new foot for my old elna, where can I purchase one. Elna SP purchased around 1971 --1972 from White Sewing Center , Cocoa Fla I live in Mount Holly N.C. 28120


you can buy Elna parts from www.whitesewingcenter.com, he specialises in the Swiss Elnas and carries range of stock. Or www.sewingpartsonline.com or www.sewusa.com stock Elna parts for both early Swiss as well as the latet ones. not sure if you meant a pressure foot or the foot control. If its pressure feet the generic low shank feet may well fit your mschine too once you buy the pressure foot adaptor for the newer clip on feet. There was a Lotus Sp and a star SP but the pressure feet were the same with the built in shank you attached with a thumb screw. the air electronics had the adaptor and clip on feet but they have same height and needle position so can use on earlier ones too.

Does this machine have a low shank --- or high shank?


High Shank Machines are all the Janome Embroidery models MC 8000, MC 9000, 10000, 10001, 11000, 200E, 300E, 350E....etc
If yours is not an embroidery machine, it has a LOW SHANK .....the higher shank allows for easier access for the embroidery hoop

I have lost the zipper foot and button hole foot, and I have a wedding dress and 5 bridesmaid dresses to make....have tried everywhere, where can I get new feet????


I've found replacement feet at Jo-ann's and Hancock's. The most important thing to know is whether your machine is a low shank, high shank, or slant shank. Other than that, or perhaps (depending on where you live) a a full-service sewing machine retailer or maybe a quilt shop, you'll need to order them online. Try http://sewingpartsonline.com/ they have a qood selection of pressure feet. I've found that pretty much, within the low shank, high shank, and slant shank categories, feet are pretty much interchangeable.

Good luck!

My Necchi 681c has snap on feet,can other makes used with it


Yes, probably. You'll need to unscrew the little gizmo that holds the snap on feet, then you can use that same screw and hole in the shank to screw on other types of feet. The most important thing is to know whether you have a low shank, high shank, or slanted shank machine, because feet of one type can't be used on other types (low shank feet can't be used on high shank or slanted shank machines, for example).
