SOURCE: The small bar that holds the zipper foot on broke.

There will be several zipper feet available at any of the sewing machine stores. You can either take the broken foot with you (or another foot for the machine) or note the shank length and the bar length on the foot. I believe the White uses a low shank foot. In that case, you would get a foot that is designed as a low shank foot (assuming the bar isn't narrower than your current foot), and it will work.

The common Foot styles are low, high and slant.

I hope this helps.

(you can also order sewing machine feet online but you need to know the style of how the foot connects to the machine. The easiest way to do that is to compare it to similar feet in a local store. Most of the online vendors will list the machine brands that are compatible with a given foot. However, I know that Husqvarna low shank feet have changed width over the past 30 years and thus not all of the feet from a new machine are mutually compatible with those for an older machine. So I wouldn't guarantee the match without seeing the feet side by side.)

SOURCE: have lost the zipper foot for a pfaff hobbymatic

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.

I have a Thompson walking foot machine. How do I change it to the zipper foot?


If it is a walking foot machine, you are pretty much limited to using the walking foot. That doesn't mean you can't sew on a zipper with the walking foot, you'd just have to accommodate using the walking foot (ie if one side of the foot is narrower, place the zipper teeth on that side. It may not sew right up close to the zipper, but should still be useful). Unless there is a specific zipper foot made for your machine, it's not likely you will find one that will work.

Pfaff Expresions 3.0. Using my zipper foot with 3 teeth. But can not get the needle to position to sew close to zipper


Um, not sure what presser foot you are using--there are several.

If it is the invisible zipper foot, there is a groove in the bottom of the presser foot that straddles one strip of zipper teeth which positions it close to the needle. Zipper foot #4 snaps to either side to enable the needle to be close to the zipper teeth. The Narrow Adjustable Zipper/Straight Stitch and the Non-Stick Zipper Feet are moveable left or right.

Hi. Here's how to attached the zipper foot.

To Attach the Zipper Foot
1. Loosen the large screw at the left of the presser bar and remove presser foot (You do not need to remove the screw).
2. Hook the prongs of the Zipper Foot around the presser bar from the back, and tighten the presser-bar screw.
3. If the raised edge (zipper or cording) is to the right of the needle, adjust the Zipper Foot by loosening the thumb screw at the back of the foot and sliding foot to the left of the needle. If the raised edge is to the left, slide foot to right.
4. With presser foot down, check its position by lowering needle into side notch, making sure it just clears the foot.
5. Tighten thumb screw to lock foot into position.
When raised edge is placed to right -- adjust foot to left of needle.
When raised edge is placed to left -- adjust foot to right of needle.

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.
