Clip-on Feet

Links Page for Other Feet
Many later 20th-Century machines and most current ones use clip-on feet systems, and they have the advantage of speed and ease of use - no screwdrivers needed. (The mechanical disadvantages are mostly irrelevant with light-weight machines)
The foot system always consists of an "ankle" and interchangeable "feet", and for some types of feet (walking and hopping feet) you almost always have to remove the ankle too. Don't lose it!
I have rebuilt the page to make this more logical - you can change the type of foot you use, but only by changing the "ankle" too - please ask if you need advice.

Click on the links to take you to the relevant parts of the page, with ankles and sets in each section..

Singer machines almost always have Narrow attaching points
Modern zigzag machines almost invariably have Wide attaching points
Early Husqvarna machines have an intermediate size
Later Husquvarna machines have all sorts of jolly toys
Pfaff machines (and some others) with IDT have a different sort of wide clip arrangement

Ankles that will take a quilt guide can have one added for an extra £1

Please ask for advice if you have a particular sewing task to do..
