    Hello and welcome to the Shop!!

    Bikini Bottom is off of Spongebob Squarepants (my favorite cartoon), I am in Tennessee. As far as your machine I can tell you that the G series were the largest that Singer had. Your machine is a Model 66 with 50,000 of them allotted on March 13 1923!!

I take that to mean that I will not be able to use any of my non Singer snap on feet. Does anyone know if that is correct?

    A snap on hem guide? What's the product # on that one, please?

    Thanks,
    It is a narrow snap on blind hem guide. My Brother one is a little different than this but I hope this one may work the same way. Not real sure because this one has a little extra piece on that front part that comes down and lays to the left.

    I believe you are correct in assuming our regular snap on feet wont' work. Because they have a much wider "snap on" area. If you notice the blind hem foot only has a tiny, or 'narrow', bar to snap on at.
    Oh yeah, that foot. :lol: Have them for a few of my other machines. Haven't played with 'em yet. Makes sense how you're using it. I'll have to take a look at mine, try it on another machine and see what I think for this purpose. Thanks for the idea! :thumbup:

    Yes, the 60615 is the short shank, which my 15-88, my FW's, 99's, even the 99 clone I just got with the damaged case, my 28 HC, and a few other's use. I am not sure which Alphasew is the slant shant, but if you find out that the 60617 is the slant shank, I will get one of those too for my 503a, Rocketeer.

    Nancy

    60617 IS the slant shank and as far as I can tell the foot part looks just like your 60615. Guess I'll give it a try, what's another $15 :? :lol:

    Hi Billy, hope you feel better.

    Can you tell me about treadles and should they make a clank when treadling?

    I'm not sure if anyone has adressed how to adjust them or if you can.

    Could someone help please.

    Duh, I should have known that, my g-son watches Spongebob non-stop when he is here.....I live in the Missouri Bootheel.

    Thanks for information on machine, so it's not a rare one or anything?

    OMG I know!!!! She has already shipped it!!! That's in like an hour! :shock:


    I have purchased from her before too. She shipped before I paid her. Such a trusting lady. Her customer service is the best I have run across on the web.

    Blessings,
    Sandi
    Does she have "stuff" for all brands or just Singer? If sew, would you post her link again, I have a few "needs". He He!!
