Clear Zig Zag Foot
Ideal for precision embroidery, applique, cutwork and monogramming. Nothing stands in the way of your creative vision. The cutout on the underside of the foot accommodates satin stitching and the clear plastic ensures greater visibility while sewing. The bottom of the foot has a wedge shaped indentation, which allows even satin stitching to glide under the foot without dragging. The angle in the indentation makes it possible to turn curves easily. The toes of the foot are shorter, compared to a regular zigzag foot, for greater maneuverability while sewing (you can turn the fabric more easily for smoother stitching lines, an important asset when embellishing fabric)

MACHINE FEET GUIDE
The first question to answer is how old is your machine? Most machines made since 1980 use snap-on feet (Except Berninas, which have their own style of attaching, and therefore need an adaptor).
Does your machine's foot screw on or snap on? If it doesn't use a screw to attach, then it's a snap-on.
If it screws on it is important to know whether your machine is a low shank, high shank, or slant needle machine. If you are not certain, you can measure using the simple instructions below:
When presser foot is down, measure the distance from the bottom of foot to screw-hole that holds the foot onto the presser bar.
- Singer slant is for slant needle machine only.
- A high shank machine measures approximately 1 1/4" from the screw to the bottom of the foot.
- A low shank machine measures approximately 3/4" from the screw (small dot in picture above) to the bottom of the foot.
Most machines made since 1980 use snap-on feet. (Except Berninas that have their own style of attaching, and therefore need an adaptor).
- If foot is not screwed on, it is a snap-on.
All Viking machines are snap-on. Viking (Huskvarna) and Pfaff are European made.
Most Japanese machines are snap-on (Brother).
All Berninas need Low Shank Adaptor and use generic low shank feet.
Singer Slant IS FOR SINGER SLANT MACHINES only. (All other Singers have snap-on or screw on feet.)
All Featherweights use low shank feet. They are center needle position machines.
- For super high-bar lever-style Kenmore, use a High-bar adaptor.
- If you are still unsure if this our foot fits your sewing machine, then please do more research before purchasing.
