Instructions for vintage Singer presser feet

I am trying to learn how to use the wide range of presser feet for Singer 222k that are not covered in the original manual.

I assume Singer gave instructions for their use - would these be in a collection somewhere, or has no-one ever tried to find/collate them?

Can anyone tell me where I can find these online, if possible, so that I could print/download those I need.

Many thanks for your efforts

SOURCE: Buttonhole instructions needed for Singer 7422 Advance

These are the exact instructions from the Manual. 1. Select one of buttonhole patterns.
2. Replace the presser foot with the buttonhole foot. (Install presser foot with little red mark towards the front)
3. Insert the button into the buttonhole foot. (the part located in the back crescent shaped)
4. Lower the buttonhole lever (to the left of the needle) so that it drops down vertically between the stoppers A and B.
5. Carefully mark the position of buttonhole on your garment.
6. Place the fabric under the foot. Pull out the bobbin thread underneath the fabric to a length of about 4 inches to the rear.
7. Align the buttonhole mark on the fabric with the mark on the buttonhole foot, and then lower the buttonhole foot.
8. While holding the top thread, start the machine.
*Sewing will be completed automatically.
9. When sewing is finished, use a buttonhole opener to open up the frabric in the center of the buttonhole. Be careful not to cut anyt of the seam thread.
I hope this helps.

SOURCE: The presser foot lifter of my Singer 9432 has disconnected

Had the same problem.
Open the cover where the light bulb is.

Follow the presser foot rod up into the machine.

You will find a metal keeper with a set screw facing the now open end of the machine.

That set screw has most likely come loose.

Since the presser foot is spring loaded to the down position leave the presser foot raising lever in the down position.

With your flat bladed screwdriver, gently push the metal keeper to it's lowest position. If it does not go easy, loosen the metal keeper set screw a bit. Lefty loosey.

Tighten the set screw on the metal keeper. Righty tighty.

Is singer contessa 974N compatible with flower stitch foot


You may want to contact Singer directly. They will be able to determine if the flower stitch unit is compatible with your machine.
According to the Singer site, it doesn't look like it is:

Flower Stitch Presser Foot Attachment

This one will fit any low-shank machines:

Presser foot wont connect


It is most likely the presser foot you are trying to install was not made for your machine. There are so many machines available and most of those machines have their own presser feet, which are not interchangeable. Unfortunately, even a Singer presser foot is not interchangeable with other Singers. Some have screw attachments, others have lever attachments, some have long shanks, others have short, some are straight, others are slanted. You need to figure out what style presser foot your machine takes and then search for either the presser feet that fit or a shank adapter that you can then use snap-on feet (kits are available on eBay).

I am looking for two blind hemming feet for overlocker model: XGlobe Lock M34. The part numbers are: 59151 and 59155. Either these parts or parts that would fit this machine .


I thought I'd see what i could find on this.. The first problem I ran into is your sewing machine model "M34" I can't find it. You have it listed as a Singer - is that correct?

I learned that the are basically 5 types of Singer presser feet mounting options. They are:

New Style Snap-on, Old Style Snap-on Low, Old Style Snap-on Slant, Low Shank & Slant Shank

The shanks look like this:

Armed with this - have a look at the eBay stores. One fairly comprehensive looking store is "Gone Sewing" I hope this helps.

I've lost my regular foot for my Singer prelude 8280. I'm looking for a reasonable one online. Can anyone help? Thanks.


Any snap on foot will fit, at least that is what it looks like in your manual. (I looked it up for free at www.singerco.com, under customer support, instruction manuals to download.) You can order from Singer direct or go to www.sewingpartsonline.com search under presser feet and order any one you want under snap on presser feet. They run approx. $14.95 each
