    Help Identifying Feet and Bobbin Cases

    A couple of months ago I bought an older serger at an estate sale. There were several other machines there that I didn't buy, but the woman gave me a bag containing a pile of "mystery feet". Can anyone help identify these? Wondering if they are worth keeping or not. In some of the photos they may look rusted, but they're not - just a reflection.

    My guess:

    The last (2) photos of the bobbin case look like Kenmore, Janome, or Brother.

    #3 looks like the straight foot for a 301A, I could be wrong with my guesses too.

    # 1,#2,#3,#5,#8 all look like feet for industrial machines...#1-2 look like edging feet. #3 just a st. stitch...
    #5 and #8 could be gathering feet for the same kind of machine..

    I think you're right about the industrial machines. They had some there, but they were too heavy for me to move ... guess I'll chuck the bunch of them in the recycling bin.

    12483 with the little flange on the side helps to do topstitching.

    It's difficult to see, but I'd say the bobbin cases look very similar to the one of my old Bernina Record.

    That bobbin case is from a early model 15 Singer, I have that case on my machine. If you still have it, can you take another picture in sharper focus, I cant tell if mine is damaged, since I dont know what it originally looked like.

    I would never, never throw any of them away. I have bought bags of attachments and found a use for them much later. As for any of them being from a Singer 301, I have two 301A machines and none of the feet are that chunky.

    You could also post over on the vintage machines section, someone there might recognize them and be able to help.

    Several of them look like they'd fit my 1975-era Kenmore. Like a previous poster, I wouldn't throw them away either.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.
