Are you sure it is the right foot for your model sewing machine?

If the machine has a snap-on presser foot, the adapter the foot snaps onto needs to be removed.

The newer models have a lower/short shank and older models have a higher/longer shank. And then there are the old models with a slant shank.

Where is the feed dog switch on the singer athena 2009 sewing machine


I'm not able to find a reference to a feed dog switch for your machine.

Singer Athena 2000 Instructions Manual Page 9

Could possibly be accomplished using a special plate? The instructions do refer to a darning foot, so the machine should be able to deactivate the feed dogs.

I have a white rotary 75 and I'm looking to fmq on it is there a presser foot bar on a singer that I can change out in order to use a quilting foot?


If you know which presser foot shank your machine has, you can purchase a darning or FMQ foot that fit your machine without having to manipulate Singer parts.

What darning foot will fit on a singer confidence 7463 for free motion quilting?


Yours is a low shank machine, and that is the most common type for newer machines of any manufacturer. eBay and Amazon both offer low-shank darning feet; I recommend the metal one with a metal large circular foot. That's my favorite, and I bought mine for $6.50 including shipping from eBay.

Singer 2662-when I press the foot control the motor revs but doesn't make the needle go up and down.


Most sewing machines have a switch to position for sewing or for spinning bobbins. Make sure it is in the sewing position and not for spinning bobbins. I have several sewing machines (not your model) and they all do that if they are set for spinning bobbins.

How do i install the darning foot?


Make sure that you have a darning foot that is compatible with your machine. I believe that the 7422 is a low shank foot; the appropriate daning foot is http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/darning-foot-singer-006016008.aspx . Lift the presser foot and remove the foot currently on the machine, including the ankle. (Loosen the screw on the left side of the ankle.)

Place the darning plate over the regular plate and feed dogs. The pins should lock into the spots on the machine.

Place the U-shaped opening of the darning foot over the screw that you loosened previously. Then tighten the screw to hold the foot on the machine.

Lower the presser foot onto your fabric. Set your stitch length. Lower the lever on the right side of the darning foot and hold onto your top thread (assuming the needle and bobbin thread are already threaded.) Now sew.

I hope this helps.

I'm looking for a darning foot to use on my Quantum CXL so I can do free motion quilting. Is there one available?


You will have to remove the adapter for the clip on presser feet to use the darning foot - http://www.sewingmachinesplus.com/pd60-4021.php same as you would to use the walking foot.
