Sewing Machine: Singer Slant Shank Vintage Sewing Machines

Vintage Singer sewing machines from the 1950s and 1960s mainly used a slant shank fitting for their sewing machine. This means that the bar that the sewing machine feet screw onto was at a 15º angle. It was thought that the slanted position would make it easier to view your needle and stitching.


There are a wide range of sewing machine feet still produced for these vintage Singer sewing machines in both screw-on and snap-on formats. Please be aware that only singer slant shank snap on feet are compatible with these machines with the use of a slant shank snap on adaptor screwed to the slanted bar. Universal snap on feet will not fit.


Please note that the Singer 301 and 301a were sewing machines that were trialled with a slightly different slant angle. These are not compatible with the standard singer slant shank fitting sewing machine feet.


Vintage Singer sewing machines with the slant shank fitting include:
