    Miriam,

    This is probably why I have started using my 301 and my 221 the most.....

    I spent my Saturday evening figuring out my attachments because they did not come in attachment boxes..That is how I found my Style-O-Matic!!

    Now if someone can explain a standard foot, from a slant, and low shank foot... this would also help..ugh!

    I think I may finally have a link to my photo of my little green machine. See if this works. http://i32.photobucket.com/albums/d1...s/IMGP2522.jpg

    I have her all cleaned up, just need to put the bobbin case back in and figure out how to thread her up. The wires are all in good condition, and I am ready to try her out.

    Just want to share the project I was working on yesterday while chatting (or should I say babbling away) with all of you. I started the layout in morning and pieces sewn together by midnight. Just need to sew rest of strips together. This is going on the back of a quilt that I'm working on right now. Piecing done with my Singer 201.Name:  IMG_3932.JPG

    Miriam,

    She does explain it well. However, when reading the info on the attachment numbers on the uksinger site... some are described as "standard foot"

    What is a standard foot???

    There are some easy quilts that don't require so many little pieces at a time. She is trying to keep a heart pattern going.

    I also keep all the attachments, bobbins, etc that go with each machine in a container right with each machine. I also like to have a pair of small scissors/snips, a small ruler guide and anything else I think I might need (manual, oil). And I made little fabric bowls for each machine, they are great to catch all the little snips of thread and things because I don't have a trash container at each machine. The little bowls are cute made of sewing related fabrics or any other you like.
