    1/4 inch foot for featherweight

    I just bought a featherweight and am looking for a 1/4 inch foot for her. Anyone have a recommendations on which foot to buy and where I can get one?

    Thanks,
    cindy

    Little Foot! It's clear plastic (easy to see) and marked all around in bright red. I love mine. Although I don't have a FW, I have one on my 301 and it does a great job, every time. You can probably get it online for about $20, more or less, but I got mine in a local sewing and vac shop. I'm very happy with it. Of course, if you have younger eyes, you may not be so picky.

    Try April 1930's. That is where I got mine.

    Look at Sew Classic. I purchased the 1/4 foot with the fence from them. Works great on my Featherweight.

    We got one like this some time back at Sew-Classic.

    I've used it on a number of machines and it works very well.

    I like that it's metal rather than plastic.

    Yup, the clear is great to see perfectly. I do NOT like the metal feet with guides. It's a personal preference but the Little Foot is my favorite 1/4" out of the bunch I own.

    I tried going to your link using cut and paste, but nothing came up! Could you give us the link again or am I doing something wrong?

    I was so happy with my 1/4" foot....you just order one for a short shank Singer and it will work also on a 201 Singer as well as your 221 Featherweight

    I use that foot on all my Singer low shank machines, also have one for my 301. Its a nice foot, can even use it on my Singer 237. I take the metal guide bar off the foot and like it much better.

    I bought one of these on Tuesday from sew-classic.com. I'm waiting for it to arrive today. The prices are very good on this website.

    I bought mine at Hancock Fabrics for my FW. Be sure to pay attention because it comes in a slant shank and a short shank. You want the short (straight) shank. It has a metal piece on it that you can butt your fabric against when sewing. It is a generic foot. If you have a coupon it can save you some money.

    Oh THE very best 1/4" is one of the lowest priced ones. I have used the Apha foot, and other ones "they" say are good but they never held the fabric well.
    I found that if you go and find a White low shank 1/4" foot it is the best and when I bought them they were only like $6 ea.

    Don't waste your money on those hig cost ones..I know I have bought them all.
