You don't necessarily need to lower your feed dogs. I like to leave them up. It gives me a rhythm to work with. Just reduce the presser foot tension, which is the knob on top, above the presser foot.

The woman who invented the Westalee ruler foot and rulers used a vintage Singer in her first videos. Here name is Leonie West. I tried to find her first videos, and they're gone from YouTube. She uses a newer, computerized machine now.
Ah that makes sense on matching the ruler size to the high/low shank. Yes I've read that there is a difference of opinions on the feed dogs so I'll have to experiment a bit. I've heard of Westalee more than a few times so I'll try to check them out. I just wish it was a bit more obvious what I should order for the 15-91
