Default How presser-feet work, third edition

This is the third edition of “Domestic Sewing Machine Presser-Feet”.

Although there are many explanations of how to use presser-feet and attachments, I have found no information about how they work. This article is a detailed explanation of the walking, tuck-marker, zig-zag, buttonhole and ruffler attachments.

In addition, there is an examination of early (up to about 1915) Singer style sets, which are often in "puzzle" boxes.

I had to split the file into three parts to upload it.

Thank You for all this interesting info. My husband loves knowing just how things work. He is going to like this. I am going to print it out for him.

What wealth of knowledge you have shared! I'm teaching sewing to a 16 year old who received a treadle for her birthday. She is fascinated with the box of feet and accessories and you have provided a great teaching tool with these documents. The "then vs now" pricing provides quite an historical reference. Thank you.
