    I have owned a sewing machine of one type or another since my first "home-ec" class in the sixth grade. Now to the present.... I moved last summer and for the first time ever was delighted to have a crew come in and pack the entire house and deliver it to the current home,and I have been going thru boxes since!!!

    In doing so came across this little accessory box, probably from that very first machine. Can anyone tell me if these feet are still any good and what in the world should i do with them? I now own a Janome MC9500 so there is no way i can use them.

    just the feet

    The middle one is a rolled hem foot. I can't identify the others, though.

    I have some of those same ones. Just not the big clunky one, which I don't know anything about. The middle one looks like a cording foot or for making a rolled hem. The one on the right is a darning foot.

    They should fit any standard regular shank machine.

    Could the one on the left be some type of seam guide?

    One looks like it could be for a button hole almost.

    The one on the left is a seam guide( it's shown upside down here) , The one in the middle for a rolled hem, and the one one the right is a darning/FMQ foot if I'm not mistaken. looks like the one my mom had for her old singer

    Which one are you referring to? The first looks more like an adjustable guide, possibly for quilting. The second is for a very small rolled hem for handkerchiefs , and the third one looks like a darning foot.

    I was talking about the seam guide I guess it is.

    The screw goes with the seam guide. You fasten it to the bed of the sewing machine and set it for whatever seam allowance you choose. IT is great for beginners or whenever you want a very accurate seam allowance.

    OMG - I think I need a nap! I read the title of this topic "Can you help me identify these feet?" - and I thought I was going to open it up to pictures of different animal feet.........

    I've been working on a Judy Neimeyer (sp?) PP quilt and I thought I was losing my mind......now I KNOW I am!!! :shock:

    These feet and seam guide would fit almost any low shank sewing machine such as a Featherweight. The darning/free motion one is the most valuable. The seam guide would be place on the bed of the machine and screwed down to make a seam guide---1/4 inch for quilting--thus no need for a 1/4 inch foot.

    Irishrose had them right and they will fit most low shank singers. I have the same ones.

    the left one is a seam guide, the middle one is a rolled hem foot and the right one is a darning foot or free motion foot.

    I believe that you got that right - the little screw goes into the slot and then you tighten down the screw once you have the guide at the setting that you want on your plate.

    From left to right- The large spoon shape goes with the screw and attaches to the bed to the right of the needle as a fabric guide. Center is a roled hem foot and the right is a darning/embroidery foot. They go ta a low shank machine possibly something like a Pfaff, Necchi, Husquvarna/Viking- notice the shank is square around where it attaches to the bar. The box looks like it may be bakalight- easy way to tell is rub it with a cloth and furniture polish or even warm water and you will get an immediate smell of platic. Hnag on to them as they are interchangable with any machine with that shape shank and being a low shank.

    The big metal one with the screw is a seam guide. It gets screwed into the little hole on top of the machine to the right of the needle plate.

    The other is a quilting/darning foot. The bar that's on it makes the foot go up and down as you move the fabric around to manually quilt.
