This foot will fit old Singer sewing machines with a slanted bar that the snap-on adaptor or screw-on feet attach to. If you aren’t sure if this will fit your machine, check out our list of compatible sewing machines or the sewing machine feet guide on our sewing tutorial page.
This sewing machine foot allows you to sew in any direction. You may need to lower or cover your feed dogs for the best results. Hooping or stabilising may also be helpful for some fabrics to avoid the puckering of stitches. This sewing machine foot is most commonly used for darning stitches or for using the sewing machine to “draw” for free-motion embroidery designs. The clear guide serves to help keep fingers away from the needle but also allows you to easily see the distance from your previous line of stitching. This is useful for repeating patterns such as those often used in quilting. The lines on the guide are spaced ¼ inch (6mm) apart.
