WOW, I didn't know they made them. Thanks for the post. I pieced the first quilt I made on my Singer treadle many decades ago.

No help with a supplier in Canada but you can contact this Singer supplier sewvacusa.com or [email protected]. They do have one just for Featherweight.

I have had one for so long, that it'sa mystery where I bought it! Or even when! But it works well. Good luck finding one.

I bought an AlphaSew at JoAnns several years ago. However, I haven't seen one there for a while. I found this one online: http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/wal...herweight.aspx and there are quite a few on eBay if you search for "Singer Featherweight Walking foot."

Hope this helps

I bought my FW walking foot at my Bernina dealer. It not "old" but it does work on the FW.

Why pay more money for something supposedly made "just for a Featherweight"? Feet/accessories for a featherweight are the same ones for most any low shank straight stitch machine. When I see feet on Ebay or other places being sold for just a featherweight, the seller is usually charging more money for a common foot/accessory.
