Your Artista takes the Bernina foot. A regular presser foot will not work on your Bernina because the attachment mechanism is specific. Be sure to check with your Bernina dealer because there are old style and new style presser feet, and you need to get the right ones for your Artista.

Presser feet for every purpose

Even if you purchase a generic presser foot, you need to be sure you get the Bernina shank(or adapter if it is a snap-on). http://www.nancysnotions.com/product/bernina+shank+adaptor+.do

The available ruffler is a generic part. But, it is made for most Low Shank machines. ANd no, you can not change the shank from high to low. Doing that or attempting to do that will not allow the needle to go all the way down as it would set for a high shank.

SOURCE: Does this machine have a low shank --- or high

High Shank Machines are all the Janome Embroidery models MC 8000, MC 9000, 10000, 10001, 11000, 200E, 300E, 350E....etc
If yours is not an embroidery machine, it has a LOW SHANK .....the higher shank allows for easier access for the embroidery hoop

SOURCE: Do I need to oil the Bernina Artista 170? If so,

- yes \-every 3-5 hours of sewing or more if you are sewing very dirty fabrics (used canvas etc)
-remove the shuttle, clean and oil the "race" where the shuttle ocellates
-remove the light cover with the off set torues wrench included with your machine
oil the needle bar, take up lefver joints and the presserfoot bar. any thing more should be done by a qualified technicial who should remove back and front covers and remove lint and dirt and then oil all the bearings

SOURCE: What type shank does this machine have? Low or

I looked up your manual and it looks like a low shank to me, I think that you can use any low shank walking foot. I bought one on ebay and I have bought another one from Amazon, both work about the same. You can also call Singer at 1-800-4singer and buy one from them.

Is bernina 930 a low shank or high shank machine


Bernina has feet that are specific to their machines only. They have old and new style feet depending when the machine was made. You cannot put generic low, high, slant or snap on feet on a Bernina sewing machine.

My Necchi 681c has snap on feet,can other makes used with it


Yes, probably. You'll need to unscrew the little gizmo that holds the snap on feet, then you can use that same screw and hole in the shank to screw on other types of feet. The most important thing is to know whether you have a low shank, high shank, or slanted shank machine, because feet of one type can't be used on other types (low shank feet can't be used on high shank or slanted shank machines, for example).
