    Question Quarter inch foot for FW

    Has anyone used the "Little Foot" with their FW? I need to buy a 1/4" foot and thought this might be the way to go.
    Comments appreciated.

    I just use a plain 1/4" foot-the kind with the built-in edge with my Featherweight. Sorry, I'd never heard of the Little Foot before you mentioned, so I can't help you there.

    I don't much care for 1/4 inch feet for piecing on the straight stitch machines. I prefer to use the standard straight stitch foot, and a screw in seam guide. I get beautiful seams that way. This one pictured happens to be on my Juki, but I use the same setup on my vintage Singers.

    I prefer to use a seam guide too. cj-thanks for the picture! I never thought to put another thumb screw in the second hole to stabilize the guide. Great idea!

    I like the 1/4" foot, but will try using the seam guide next time.

    I've never heard of the "Little Foot", but have a 1/4" foot for all my machines. A regular 1/4" low shank foot will work. I have 4 featherweight machines and these work well.

    I'm debating whether to find a 1/4'' foot for my baby, so thank you for asking this! I'm going to go with a seam guide, I think--I rather like the look of the original foot.
