    Question 1/4" seam guide

    I would like to purchase a 1/4" seam guide for my Singer Featherweight. It, is plastic ( some clear and some with a lace look). aprox. 3/6" and is able to screw into the bed of the machine.

    I have a long metal one that screws on the bed. I bought it from a vendor at a quilt show. I have trouble with it moving out of alignment. It never stays perfectly straight.
    Got fabric?

    I've never seen a plastic one, but sew-classic has a metal one. Is this similar to what you want? I like mine. For me, it's much more accurate for me than a 1/4" foot.

    I like using mole skin, it's cheap and I can cut strips and use it over and over again. It also doesn't move. I use a little ruler with a hole for my needle, for perfect placement. A teacher showed me this and since then I am pretty consistent in width of seams.

    I use a 1/4" foot with guide attached to the foot. Works beautifully.

    I had bought one made by AlphaSew but it wiggled and didn't help at all.

    Last nite was at a pajama [quilting] party with friends and one of the ladies had bought aLittleFoot for FW's. It didn't wiggle at all. No flange though.
    Have fun quilting! If it isn't fun, you will miss a lot.

    I bought mine from this web site, it is very good to use, even on the bigger Singers. Hope the link works!
