What kind of sewing machine is it? What is the model number? If it's a Singer, you can go to Singer.com and find out what you need to know, or if it's a White, go to White.com, or type in whatever brand it is with a .com and you should get your answers.

look at the foot that is on your machine now if the foot and up to the screw that holds the foot on the part that makes it go up and down is less than an inch tall than it is a low shank. you could also google your make and model and ask google to be sure.

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.

I have a Kenmore model 158.19411 and I want a walking foot for this model. Is this model a high shank or low shank?


The Kenmore 158.19411 uses super high shank presser feet. Sears Parts Direct has the zipper foot still available for the 158.19411. http://www.searspartsdirect.com/kenmore-sewing-machine-parts/6759/0020/158/model-15819411/0582/1220000.html . Other compatible feet are available here: http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/kenmore-158-18023-sewing-machine-parts.aspx . This site also has an adapter for connecting Kenmore-compatible low shank presser feet to the Kenmore 158.19411 .

I hope this helps.

My machine is a Husqvarna Prism 980, and I'd like to know if it's a high shank or low shank.


Take a Measure

With the presser foot in the down position, measure from the Needle plate of the machine to the center of the thumb screw of the ankle of the machine (the part that the presser foot snaps on to).

Low Shank - measures ½"
High Shank - measures 1"

Most consumer machines are low shank. There is probably not a walking foot that is made for this machine but there may be some third party suppliers that have a walking foot that will work. Stitchery Sewing Machine Attachments Needle and Thread

What make of walking foot would fit my Elna su air electronic sewing machine, thankyou


You need a low shank style walking foot. Even back in the 80's when your SU air electronic was new, the walking foot sold by Elna was an after market one, and not made by Tavaro. Same with the ruffler attachment, it was after market and actually fitted quite a few makes of machine.

I would just ask the dealer/shop if they will refund your money if you find it doesn't work just in case.

There is a low shank one on sewingpartsonline.com
http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/walking-foot-low-shank-p60444.aspx and they list the SU as compatible with it.

Take off the foot holder on your mache, and you need to fit the little open ended arm over the needle bar and the foot bracket onto the foot with your machine's regular thumb screw. The up and down movement of the needle bar operates the walking foot.

What type shank does this machine have? Low or high? What type walking foot do I use?


I looked up your manual and it looks like a low shank to me, I think that you can use any low shank walking foot. I bought one on ebay and I have bought another one from Amazon, both work about the same. You can also call Singer at 1-800-4singer and buy one from them.

Attaching walking foot


you probably purchased the incorrect walking foot for your specific machine. check and make sure if you have a high shank or a low shank....the way to determine if you have a low-shank is to measure the screw from the plate and look at the distance if it is 5/8 then you have a low, any higher about 1in. then you have a high shank, so you would purchase a foot depending on your shank.
