You can not use standard feet for free motion quilting or embroidering

to work with templates and rulers!

It's very dangerous!

What's this?

What is your shank on your sewing machine?

Put your presser bar in the down position. Measure from the bed of the machine to the center of the thumb screw (presser foot holder screw).

Most domestic sewing machines are low shank. Medium shank feet are suitable for some types of Pfaff sewing machines. 

Large sewing machines can have a high shank size.

foot slant shank

If you have an old Singer machine and the length is 3/4 to 1 inch, you might own a slant shank

We also have feet for such sewing machines.

 Bernina sewing machines have a completely different presser foot system.

Our feet for Bernina sewing machines are labeled as mini low shank.

 How to properly attach the foot to the sewing machine

First you remove your regular screw-on foot or your machine’s presser foot holder and then you screw the new foot on the shank. 

You need a little screwdriver to screw the foot on and off.

The height of the presser foot is about 3 mm. The height depends on the thickness of your sandwich.

The sandwich must slide freely under the presser foot.

 The foot is too low!


Bernina has a specific clip-on system that no other brand uses.

To use universal presser feet on a Bernina sewing machine you will need a Bernina adapter.

There are 2 types of adapters, on for the machines before 1996 (old style - #75) and one for the models after 1996 (new style #77).
