Default Greist attachments help plz lovely ppl

hey so I forgot to mention in a post about the national sewing machine I asked for help about, in that same cabinet there was an attachments Tin box by greist attachments…if it all is from the same set that is literally amazing as it is in near perfect condition. I would like to get approx years this set was out so I can narrow down the national model as all tips I have received have sadly got me no closer to correct model info. So last ditch effort lol but this is an awesome set, but I have no clue how to use these attachments or what they do. So if could help I’d be grateful or just as long as I peeked your interest, I’d be glad. Have a great day and thanks in advance guys 😊

Looks like a complete set of attachments for your machine. The manual for the Expert BT that I have posted the link to has the instructions for using the attachments starting on page 13.

I forgot to mention, that there is a good possibility that this machine will take a what is considered a 20x1 needle. You didn't say what machine you made your quilt on (as mentioned in your profile). It looks like there are some needles in your attachment box. If you used a modern machine for the quilt, you probably used 15x1 or 130/705. As Zorba mentioned he was able to drop the 15x1 needle a bit and had it work. Compare the needles from your other machines to the ones found in the attachment box. The ones in the attachment box are probably longer.
