Go to any sewing machine store and buy a LOW SHANK adjustable zipper foot.This foot will screw on and fits almost everything. Yes, it's an older machine but you can still get most parts for it. Especially feet.I think this machine has snap on feet, so If you want an original foot take the ankle with you when you go to the shop to buy it.

How do I thread the Singer merritt Lock serger?


Which model is your sewing machine? There may have been several with the Merritt Lock name. The 14U44 Merrit Lock uses the same manual as the 14U44B. The manual for 14U44B UltraLock model is available from Singer here: http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/4268b9ecf6c0ad26e8810365518e68cfea086994.pdf . See pages 10 - 17 (12- 19 of the PDF). There's also the 14U44B manual here: http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/1292_14u44b,244b.pdf . The threading diagram is on the same pages. I'm not exactly sure which manual will help you. Additional manuals are available here: http://www.singerco.com/accessories/instruction-manuals . Enter the first part of the model number (up to any alphabetic characters). You can order copies for $15-20, depending on the machine.

I hope this helps.

How to attach zipper foot on singer inspiration


Here is a copy of your manual.
http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/498_4205_4210.pdf

Most modern machines have snap off and snap on feet. Grasp the foot that is on there and push down. Then while lowering the foot, align the little bar on the zipper foot and watch it snap in. Easy.

Have lost the zipper foot for a pfaff hobbymatic 939 The instruction manual I got with the machine is for a hobbymatic 947 and it looks exactly so I'm guessing the zipper foot would be the same. where...


You should be able to buy another foot, but you'll need to know if it is a high shank or a clip on style. Try this link to www.sewingpartsonline.com http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/pfaff-sewing-machine-presser-feet.aspx they have two invisible zipper feet and two clip on ones. Don't mention your model but you should be able to email and ask if you aren't sure. I'd expect that the feet would be interchangeable between the models in the same era as yours. Just ignore the long funny shaped feet, they are for Pfaff sergers.

How to use a zipper foot please? I have lost instructions and have no idea which is the zipper foot or how to use it can you help please.


  1. Step 1 To prepare the fabric for a centered zipper application, use the standard presser foot to baste the opening of the fabric shut using 5/8 inch seam allowance. Press the seam allowance open. Place the zipper teeth side down on the seam allowance and pin the zipper to the seam allowance only.
  2. Step 2 Release the standard presser foot from your machine. There may be a button or lever behind the foot that you need to press. Put the standard foot in its holder or someplace where it won’t get lost.
  3. Step 3 Decide which side of the machine you want to attach the zipper foot to. Zipper feet are asymmetrical, with one side that’s wider than the other. You’ll want to put the narrow side toward the zipper teeth, and the wider side away from the zipper teeth.
  4. Step 4 Attach the zipper foot to the sewing machine. You may need to line up the bar on the zipper foot with the presser foot holder, then lower the presser foot by lowering the lever. Raise the presser foot and make sure the zipper foot is securely attached.
  5. Step 5 Place the prepared fabric with the pinned zipper in the sewing machine. Lower the needle into the zipper tape and the seam allowance only, then lower the zipper foot. Stitch the zipper tape to the seam allowance. To sew the other side of the zipper to the seam allowance, remove the zipper foot from the sewing machine and install it on the other side of the presser foot holder.
  6. Step 6 Topstitch the outside of the fabric to each side of the zipper tape, making sure that the zipper foot is on the appropriate side of the machine for each side. Remove the basting with a seam ripper.

Go to www.managemyhome.com and you can download a free manual there. That will give you the directions to operate the machine as well as the Parts Numbers for any accessories you may want. I bought this same machine a few weeks ago. I have tested out almost every stitch on it, & almost the only 2 presser feet I have needed have been the Zigzag Foot (A) and the Satin Stitch Foot (F). Of course, if you want to do buttonholes or zippers, you will want hte Buttonhole Foot (R) and the Zipper Foot (E). Parts Numbers for ordering are listed for every part on page 6 of the manual. Good luck!
