    Economical marking for FW needle plate

    I came across this a few weeks ago and finally got around to putting it on my Featherweight. It's great and perfect price for me as I couldn't justify a $50 needle plate for my baby at this time. I have a 1/4 foot, but recently needed some other sized markings and I like this better than tape. Shipping was very quick and reasonable ($2.20 for my whole order - I took the opportunity to buy some bobbins and needles as well).

    I bought some of those last week & I think they're great! I bought a marked needle plate for my 201 last year. It's nice but I thought it kinda took away from the vintage look. It's got a matte finish so it didn't match the bobbin cover plate exactly. And it was a bit thicker than the original so, it sat just slightly higher also. Yeah, I know....I'm a little too picky!

    Anyway, last week I bought the stick-on markings for my White Rotary. I liked them so much that I switched the 201's needle plate back to the original one & used 1 of these.

    I like buying from Sew Classic, too...fast (& cheap!) shipping & great service, too.

    Oh glad to hear others like them! I bought a set for my machines last month but haven't put them on yet. Guess I'll do it tomorrow.

    Wouldn't that work on just about any machine? I'd like that on my treadle.

    Yes, it would fit any machine. You line up the needle hole and trim away around the feed dogs with an x-acto knife. I turned mine upside down to trim it so I didn't scratch the metal.
