Select Your Sewing Machine To See The Feet That Fit It

Most home sewing machines are a low shank fitting. This includes most Babylock, Brother, Janome and modern Singer sewing machines. Low shank sewing machines are also compatible with universal snap-on sewing machine feet.

To check which sewing machine feet are compatible with your sewing machine, you can search your exact sewing machine model in the search bar. Alternately, you can lower your presser foot then measure the distance between the screw that attaches the sewing machine foot or snap-on foot adaptor to the bar on the sewing machine down to the foot plate. A low shank fitting is ¾ of an inch (just under 2cm).

Please note that Husqvarna Viking and Pfaff sewing machines can have needle clearance issues with some universal snap-on and screw on low shank fittings, so we recommend browsing the feet which are specifically for these brands if these are required.
