    Singer 50s featherweight 3-110 FMQ FMQ applique with darning foot?

    This is the machine I learned how to sew on. Iím thinking of taking it camping to make boom blocks. Can I put a darning foot on it and use it to do FMQ applique? I know it doesnít zig zag.

    Other Featherweight 221 fans might think different but I was able to make a few of my Boom Blocks using my featherweight. I haven't had mine all that long yet but find that the only thing I cannot do is zig zag.

    I use my Featherweight quite a bit. I'm not sure how a darning foot would help, as I'm not sure what the Boom Block looks like. I would just do a very narrow straight stitch as close as possible to the edge. Seems a darning foot wold be jumping too much for any accuracy at all.
    Better to do something imperfectly, than nothing perfectly.
    Done is better than perfect.

    I have a spring like darning foot I use on my treadle so no reason you couldn't use one on your FW. I think the Boom is something ongoing here? Do some samples and send images to the coordinator first, see if they pass muster?

    I would like to know what a boom block is also?

    Asking a seamstress to mend is like asking Picasso to paint your garage.
