You didn't specify a model, but foot pedals are generally used by a wide variety of models of machines. Go to eBay and enter your machine's model number, and you'll probably see foot pedals for your model of machine for sale.

Metal blind foot hem 6217c


The 6217C doesn't have a blind hem foot. You need the General Purpose (low-shank) foot, the General Purpose Needle Plate and the blind hem guide (part number 381213). The guide gets secured by the screw that holds the presser foot shank. This site, http://cart.jennys-sewing-studio.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=473 , has the blind hem guide available. This metal foot might fit your machine: http://cart.jennys-sewing-studio.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=530_73_101_164_168&products_id=463 .

I hope this helps.

How do i cut cotton on an elna stella? normally the cutter is up at the base of the needle but i cant find mine.... thanks!!


There should be a little **** in the back of the pressure foot bar that you cut the thread on. It normally is about an inch above the pressure foot attachment screw running horizontally.

Elna also bought out a a little black pressure foot screw/combination thread snip that replacded the silver thumb screw holding on the pressure foot shank which serves the same purpose. You wind the thread around it on the left side into a spring loaded crack and pull, it cuts and holds the two ends.

Failing that, a cheap pair of thread snips is another way to solve the problem.

My needle breaks 2 in a row


Don't pull your fabric as you seam as this is a sure fire way to break needles.

Also, make sure you have got the right foot on it for the stitch sequence it is sewing. For example, don't use a foot with a little hole in it when doing a zig zag as the needle will strike the foot. The general purpose clear plastic foot is usually a good one for most stitching.

If you are trying to sew something pretty heavy then this can cause breakages too as the machine may struggle to pierce through 6 layers of denim when you cross another seam. For example, hemming jeans, when you stitch over the side seams, your machine is trying to pierce probably 7 layers, the leg, plus the felled seam turned twice. It will struggle. You can help it by using a "Jeans-a-jig" a little plastic device you hold in front to get the foot up over the lump and give it grip. But take it really slow and sew one stitch at a time.

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

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 http://sewmamasew.com/blog2/2009/06/feet-feet-feet/ 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.

The foot fell off and i dont know how to put it back on i have a brother model ls2125


If, you read your book you will see how to do it. And if, you do not have your manual, go to www.brother-usa.com, under support, click on home sewing and embroidery, then select your model, and just below you will see your manual to download. That is free. The reason that I couldn't answer you was because you the foot fell off, did you mean the snap on one or the snap on foot adaptor? If, the book does not work for you write back.
