How to Use Vintage Feet

Jan 27, 2011
Article Image
From adding tiny pin tucks to creating heirloom lace, you’ll find many exciting ways to use vintage feet. There are dozens of types available, but this article by Charlene Phillips from Threads #149 focuses on the three most popular: the tucker, the edge stitcher, and the adjustable hemmer. Vintage feet are readily available online, and you might even have some of them hiding in your sewing cabinet waiting to be discovered. Be careful, though, because they’re addictive! Once you’re hooked, you’ll want to try other vintage feet such as the circular stitcher, the binder, the ruffler, and so many more. You don’t need a vintage machine to benefit from these time-saving, easy-to-use attachments.

    Question: What era of machines are considered to be vintage? I have a Singer machine from the early to mid-1960's. Is that vintage or just old?
    Thank you,

    Okay, I looked it up. In case anyone else wants to know, it is an "Adjustable Hemmer Foot".

    Well, this is annoying... whenever I click on the link for Charlene Phillips's article in Threads #149, it takes me to the Taunton book store!
    Actually, I was just curious what the vintage foot being shown in the photo was, since I have other vintage feet, but not that one. I guess I'll have to look it up in my own copy of the magazine. Hope it's mentioned there!

    Thanks so much for posting this article, I have two of the three vintage attachments described and had zero clue what they are or how to use them... now about the other 19 feet and attachments I received when I purchased this 60 year old machine....
