Hi Tisha0525,

Do you have specific presser feet you are interested in using? We have a couple of books available that give lots of details on bunches of different feet but don't want to direct you to it if it wouldn't include the feet you need!

Please let us know and we'll either direct you to our book or provide you with some info on the feet you specifically want to use.

Happy sewing,
Kim & Linnette

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).

Can the presser foot be raised slightly on pfaff tiptronic 2030 to facilitate free motion quilting? There is not enough clearance with feed dogs down to freely move material to quilt. Thank you.


You need a special foot for free motion quilting--it is slightly shorter in height than a regular presser foot, which essentially provides space between the presser foot and the needle plate to manually move the fabric. Sometimes machines came with a standard darning foot accessory. Your Pfaff dealer probably has at least one style in stock. But there are other specialty feet you can probably use, ie Big Foot, clear free motion foot, C-shaped, oval, etc. You can also purchase a shank adapter (verify it is the correct shank for your machine) and use it with a kit of snap-on presser feet so you can have a variety of presser feet for different functions.

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.

http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/sewing-machine-presser-feet.aspx

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.

How to attach free motion foot


Most free motion feet attach like the other feet.

It is creating "thread nesting" also called birdnesting. Could be several things:
1) make sure before you thread the upper thread, RAISE the presser foot so the thread will seat properly in the tension disks
2) drop your feed dogs before you begin to free motion
3) your free motion quilt foot, when lowered, should not rest on the fabric. (Be sure you are lowering your presser foot when you want to stitch!) You should be able to move the quilt sandwich easily under the presser foot. If the foot applies any pressure to the fabric, you may need to release the presser foot pressure (consult your manual). Or you are using the incorrect presser foot for your machine.
4) If none of the above, you need to tighten the upper tension AND
try this method before beginning to free motion stitch:

How do I PUT together the presser foot. the part that snaps into foot


Here's a manual you can download. It should have instructions for attaching your presser foot:

If you are using snap-on feet, be sure that you have the low-shank snap-on adapter for your machine (looks something like these) that actually clamps onto the presser foot:

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

Im not sure which presser foot is which!


Do you have a manual?
If not, you can download one free from the Singer site.
http://www.singerco.com/accessories/manuals.html
Just type in 1418 and click on search.
On the next page click on free download!
Page 3 of the manual (page 7 of the PDF file) shows you the accessories for the machine, including the presser feet.
Hope this helps!

I lost my owner's manual for my stf39 Please tell me where I can get another. Also I'd like to get a new presser foot. Where can I get extra parts?


I got a free manual for my Toyota machine from www.aisin.fr
They have one available for the stf 37, which may be similar to your machine.

Try ebay for presser feet as a lot of feet will work on different machines. You just need to know what kind of shank your machine has.
