Presser Feet

Presser feet are attachments for sewing machines that help hold fabric in place as it is being sewn. They can also perform specific tasks, such as zigzag stitching or attaching buttons.

To fit a presser foot, first consult your sewing machine's manual to determine the correct presser foot to use for your project. Then, raise the sewing machine's presser foot lever to release the current presser foot. Next, slide the shank of the new presser foot under the presser foot holder, and lower the lever to secure it in place.

There are many different types of presser feet available, including:

  • Standard presser foot: This is the basic presser foot that comes with most sewing machines. It can be used for straight stitching, zigzag stitching, and other basic sewing techniques.
  • Zipper foot: This presser foot has a narrow shape that allows you to sew close to zipper teeth and other narrow edges.
  • Buttonhole foot: This presser foot has a guide that helps you create consistent buttonholes.
  • Blind hem foot: This presser foot helps you create invisible hems on garments and other projects.
  • Overlock foot: This presser foot allows you to create an overlock stitch, which is a type of seam finish often used in knit fabrics.
