Not all low shank fit low shank. the max. stitch width usually 5mm - 7mm needle opening also makes a diff. Best to order feet for your particular mode. Check out www.sewingpartsonline.com it's a great site and easy to navigate

Is bernina 930 a low shank or high shank machine


Bernina has feet that are specific to their machines only. They have old and new style feet depending when the machine was made. You cannot put generic low, high, slant or snap on feet on a Bernina sewing machine.

Is the Bernina 1230 a low shank or high shank machine?


BEWARE! Bernina machines take a special Bernina-only foot, and even the older Bernina mechanical feet will not fit the newer Berninas, and vice versa.

For the most part, your 1260 uses the old style presser foot--BUT be sure to check as there are some old style that will NOT work on your machine. (Be sure to CONFIRM whether it will work on your machine as I believe the 1260 has some specifics that will not take all old style.) Red marked presser feet are only new style (ie computerized machines). The difference is in how the presser foot is designed at the top where it attaches to the machine. Your Bernina dealer generally carries both the old and new style. BEFORE you buy, be sure to ask whether you are getting the right foot for the 1260!

Look at the top of these presser feet so you can recognize what you need. You are probably safe buying the presser feet that have the 2 pegs at the top (if it has solid peg across the top, it may not work):

You can use snap-on feet BUT you still need a Bernina Adapter in order to do so.

Is singer contessa 974N compatible with flower stitch foot


You may want to contact Singer directly. They will be able to determine if the flower stitch unit is compatible with your machine.
According to the Singer site, it doesn't look like it is:

How can I find accessories for an old machine?


Sewing shops are loaded with this stuff. You can order online too. You'll need the make & model number. Do a little research, I think Kenmores are simply repackaged Singers.

eBay has lots of sewing machine feet and your brand of sewing machine dealer will have the feet that will fit your machine the best. You need to know whether you have a low shank or high shank before you purchase presser feet for your machine. Good Luck, if I can help further, pls let me know.

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.
http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/low-shank-sewing-machine-presser-feet.aspx

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.

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).
