    Can I use sewing feet made by singer with my Brother sewing machine? I have a VX-1120.

    sometimes the snap on feet for low shanks will but sometimes they won't. I almost always take my machine when buying feet. I put them on and turn the hand wheel toward me slowly to see if the needle hits anything and that the feed dogs work with the foot

    Babylock feet work fine with Singer, therefore, Brother should, too.

    Some of the feet are universal, when I buy them online, I email the site and double check to see if they will fit my particular machine. Many are listed as "universal snap on feet" or "universal low shank" etc...

    It really depends on the machine.

    Feet generally come in two types. A full shank or a clip on type. Most Brothers have clip on's. If your singer is an older machine it may be a shank type, which like Pam said needs an adaptor.

    The Creative Feet fit all sewing machines because of engineering.

    IF you want to take feet from one machine to the next there are things to consider:

    1) The snap on bar width
    2) The foots opening and how it lines up with the sewing machine needle.

    Our adapters that are included with each foot make it so some machines that normally cannot share feet, can. Of course all of our feet will fit all sewing machines because of more than our shanks but you may be able to do what you're trying - just use the hand-wheel to see that the needle clears all sides of the opening in the foot before running the machine.
