Depends on how much sewing you plan to do, what kind of sewing (embroidery, etc.) and the condition of the machine. If everything else works I would invest $50. The Viking 1 machines are getting old and parts are hard to come by and may be quite expensive. If you plan to do lots of sewing, I would look around at the cost of replacement machines to make the cost/benefit analysis of repair/upgrade. Lots of people still use these machines, especially for quilting. When they are in good condition they are great machines.

Which model old style cam type buttonhole attachment from Singer will fit on the Bernina 807 minimatic machine that is an equivalent to the singer featherweight that I can make keyhole buttonholes.


In my earlier response, you need a shank that is made for your Bernina 807 and Berninas made in that era. Only "Old Style" Bernina presser feet and adapters will fit your machine. No other brand will work, not Singer, not Janome, not Brother, nothing but Bernina Old Style. There are several Bernina old style presser feet. Look for presser feet with the number printed in black ink or presser feet that have the number stamped into the metal. Do not buy a Bernina presser foot with red numbers--will fit only newer Bernina machines.

If you want to use the Singer buttonholer attachment, it needs to be for a straight shank machine. You will need to have a Bernina shank adapter for your machine.
Bernina Presser Feet (down at the bottom of the page, click on the blue text that says "Bernina Shank Adapter" On the next page, scroll down to the last two items that indicate they are "Old Style." The first Old Style item is the shank adapter you would need to attach the Singer buttonholer attachment to your machine. (Am assuming it will work, no guarantees!) If it doesn't work, then you will probably not be able to use the Singer buttonholer with your Bernina machine.
This shank adapter would fit your machine:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Adapter-Low-Shank-Feet-Foot-Bernina-500-1630-Old-Style-/380397208368

If you are looking for a snap-on adapter, it needs to state that it will work with a Bernina Old Style machine, ie the old Record machines (930 Record, 830 Record, 730 Record, 707, 807 Mini, 630 Record, and 530 Record--or in other words, Berninas manufactured prior to probably 1996).

Bernina Presser Feet (down at the bottom of the page, click on the blue text that says "Bernina Shank Adapter" On the next page, scroll down to the last two items that indicate they are "Old Style." If you are looking for the snap-on, go to the very last item on the page (Old Style). This will fit your machine. Remember, if it says Old Style, it should work on your machine.

This snap-on shank will fit your machine:
Presser Foot SNAP ON SHANK Adapter Bernina Old Style 530 532 1630...

This presser foot will fit your machine:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/BERNINA-ORIGINAL-20-SATIN-DECORATIVE-STITCH-FOOT-OLD-STYLE-830-1530-930-etc-/132055492681

This is an entire kit of snap-on feet with shank (included) that will work on your machine:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/20-Feet-Set-for-Bernina-Sewing-Machine-Old-Style-530-1630-Models-/381790565625

Here is a kit of snap-on feet with shank (included) as well as the buttonhole attachment you were asking about:
17 Feet Set for Bernina Sewing Machine Old Style eBay
Although, I believe you will be able to make only straight buttonholes with this buttonhole attachment.

Hope this helps.

Compatibility of sewing machine feet


If the width of both machines' presser feet are the same, the only thing you need to worry about is the shank and the form of attachment the shank has to the machine.

According to this, the feet may be compatible:
Generic Presser Feet Accessories
You'll need to verify that the shanks are the same between both machines. Perhaps the Juki dealer can tell you if the feet are compatible.

However, if the presser feet are not compatible with both machines, you can purchase an snap-on adapter shank for the Juki and pick up a kit of snap-on presser feet (these are generic, not Juki made) and you will be set to go for very little outlay of finances. In addition, you could pick up a snap-on adapter for the Husqvarna and you would be able to use the snap-on feet on both machines (in case you don't have some feet for your existing machine).

Attachments for 140 activa


Do you mean a presser foot to sew rolled hem or shell hem edges?
11_15_2011_1_23_35_am.jpg
If so, the Bernina website lists the accessories here:http://www.bernina.com.au/product_detail-n25-i61-sEN.html

Bernina feet 68 and 69 are rolled hem/shell, just different widths. However, I think the feet for the Activa are the new 3 digit numbered feet? I know there is the old style and new style attachment system for Bernina feet, if you look at the presser feet you got with the machine, they will have a code on the front of the foot; buy any new feet with same code format.

As to where to buy, I always start with the manufacturer/distributor in my country first. So start with www.bernina.com, go to your country, then "contact us" page and give the local office a call. They should be able to confirm the exact foot code you need and sell it to you or direct you to a local dealer who can.

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.

I have a XL2022 sewing machine and I have lost the button hole make that goes with It, is there anyway I can get another one? Frances Ward


I researched a little and found www.sewingpartsonline.com and found that they have the accessories (feet, buttonhole attachment etc) item number 5011 for $24.50 and they fit all kinds of machines. But, Brother may sell you one by its self at phone # 1-877-276-8437. It will probably cost you the same with shipping & handling. But, if you are in a pinch, it will be worth it. The picture of the buttonhole attachments looks very universal, in my opinion. I hope I helped you.
Good luck

Can I buy attachments for a White sewing machine , model # 1810 and where?


The feet are either short shank or long shank, if you can take any of the feet to any sewing machine shop and you should be able to get them quite easily.

Touch Tronic 2001 singer Brand


Hi, I have this same machine (I have 2 actually) and I LOVE this machine. There is a reset button underneath the machine - press that and chances are everything will work like normal again. And yes, these machines are repairable. I needed new gears on mine in January - it cost around $120 but it was well worth it. This machine will run forever. I looked at buying a new one and they are cheap plastic and in my opinion not worth it. Good luck!
