Using invisible zipper foot - needle hitting foot


We need to know the brand and model of your machine? Some zipper feet slide left or right. If yours does this, then you need to adjust the zipper foot so the needle doesn't hit.

Did Elna Carina SU 66 originally come with a straight stitch foot and throat plate?


No, the Carina came with a standard zig zag plate and 5 feet I think from memory, the teflon coated foot , the embroidery foot, buttonhole foot, zipper foot and darning foot.

What foot do I use for strraight stitching I have an Elna 3005 model sewing machine Thanks


Ideally you want a foot that looks like this with a very small hole where the needle goes down, to maximise the pressure onto the fabric. Just don't move the stitch setting to anything that swings the needle or you'll smash the needle onto the foot and risk damaging the machine.

But unless you are having issues with the fabric being pulled down into the feed dogs, the regular clear sewing foot should be fine for most work and is certainly easier to see what you are sewing.

tally_girl_69.jpg A lot of quilters go for a 1/4" foot too which gives you consistent 1/4" seam widths when piecing quilts. There is a excellent website on sewing machine feet and their different purposes, link is
http://sewmamasew.com/blog2/2009/06/feet-feet-feet/ and she has great images of 1/4" foot in use along with others such as Open Toed or Roller foot.

If you are shopping for different machine feet, you may like to look at www.sewingpartsonline.com, great website with lots of different brands. Your machine would be classified as a "low Shank" machine I think; often you can buy a generic brand foot which will work on different brand machines once you are sure of the shank type.

Most sewers find that there will be one foot they prefer to use for much of their work depending on their projects. My all time fav is the Elna Teflon foot, a black teflon coated foot which works great on many different fabrics; I've worn the black off the bottom of two of them!!

The small bar that holds the zipper foot on broke. How can I get a new zipper foot?


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.

Cindy Wells
(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.)
