I have a Sears Kenmore sewing machine I want to get a 1/4 in presser foot for it, is there one and where would I get it/

You first need to determine which shank the presser foot uses on your machine. You can compare your shank (current presser foot) with these photos to see which one your machine uses.

NOTE: If you purchase a snap-on presser foot, you will also have to buy a "shank adapter" that will attach the presser foot to the needlebar. Here are some pictures of snap-on adapters:
Kenmore sewing machine snap on adapter Google Search
However, you will still need to make sure to buy the correct adapter for your machine. The GREAT thing about buying a snap-on adapter is you can add a lot of presser feet to your sewing machine accessories because you can purchase additional snap-on presser feet or even a complete set of snap-on feet that will all work with your adapter and your machine!!!

You will just snap one foot off and snap another on!!! Great idea!!!

OR--you can take your current presser foot along with the make & model of your machine and check with the local sewing repair shops to see if they have what you need.

FYI, once you know what shank your machine has, you can probably also find other specialty feet for your machine, ie walking foot, free-motion foot, etc.

Sewing machine model not showing on website

The Janome 4400 is only sold at HobbyCraft. To find the accessories for the model, look at the manual or the feet/bobbin. HobbyCraft may have the correct accessories but they aren't listed in the online catalog. Janome sells feet in four categories. If you match the category based on the documentation or on the feet, you will be able to get the correct feet. (See for an idea of the different feet. The categories seem to be based on the width of the knuckle where the foot is attached.) Any sewing machine and accessory vendor will probably be able to tell you the correct bobbin and foot if you bring in one of each.

I hope this helps.

Vintage Tough and Sew Model # 628 PRESSER FOOT QUESTION!

You should be able to figure out which shank your machine has here:

If you have the manual, it should show you how to change the presser feet.

SINGER Instruction Manual pdf model 628

If your machine and presser foot look like the one in the video, the screw on the left side of the presser foot should be what holds the presser foot in place.

There may be other videos here that would be helpful.

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 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, 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!!

MHello! I have a Brother BM3600,and wish to know how the us of each different foot attachment,as It never came with an instruction manual,and cannot even get proper help from the local Spotlight store!(I...

I would suggest that you start by going to this page and downloading a manual, and printing it to have next to your machine. There is also some good tips and instructions on this page

In terms of different sewing machine feet, there is some good information on this page, or you could go to the local library and see what books they have, Singer do several good "Sewing Machine" guides but there are lots on the market.

And if you need some inspiration I love visiting, a website where lots of sewers contribute their thoughts and experiences making up a wide range of commercial patterns, plus sewing machines and overlocker reviews. Its really worth the membership fee as you can have your own stash of patterns saved, a wishlist and get newsletters. Burda also have a great website, I love buying their magazine as each one has 20 or more patterns and they are so on style.

Lastly,, Debbie is a wonderful source of all sorts of sewing information, I visit her pages often. She shows lots of techniques and gives good cleaning and maintenance info too.

Good luck with your Brother, I'm on the Gold Coast and have a Spotlight 2kms away but drive past it to The Fabric Store or Fabric Frenzy, local independents, much better service. I bought my Janome from there - I've rung her lots of times and been very happy with the service and repairs they provide.

There are different kinds of single needle foot, What are these?

If you take a look at this website you'll see the different feet for some makes

I assume you mean what are the different feet used for?
General purpose foot will have room for the needle to swing through wide stitches, but enough foot to hold the fabric and move it through against the feed dogs. This is the one you use most.
A straight stitch foot will have a little hole so that the needle only goes through a small area and the fabric can't move to give a neat plain straight stitch.
Plastic wide toe foot is good when you need to see what you are sewing onto such as applique (sewing a piece of fabric onto another with a wide satin stitch).
Teflon coated foot is good for slippery fabrics, it grips well.
A roller foot is great for textiles like leather and vinyl which don't feed nicely.
Then there are lots of feet for turning the fabric to sew it such as a rolled hem (these come in different widths so you can turn 2mm, 4mm or 6mm for example).
Felled foot (like the side seam on your jeans) joining two fabrics in a felled seam
Then there are feet for quilting and darning where you need to move the fabric smoothly in different directions, these will be small foot area and open stitching space usually.
Walking foot is a special one, part of the foot moves because a part of it clips around the needle bar and the up and down movement then activates the foot so its little teeth help to move the fabric from the top to supplement the normal feed dogs below. Pfaff machines actually built this function into their machines some years ago to give even feed from top and bottom. Great for quilting thick fabric sandwich or sewing together fabrics that want to slip or not feed smoothly.

There is also similar info here which may help you to see the different uses and feet available.
Most manufacturers will sell their machine with 4 or 5 of the most used feet but often have more to buy aftermarket. And many feet between companies look very alike so if you have a clip on foot from one brand it may work on another machine with a clip on foot.

I hope that this is what you were asking.

Euro pro shark 7132l no foot pedal/power cord

Sewing Service shops often have old foot control pedals from retired machines, so widen your local search and don't just look at Europro, as a good tech will service all makes.
