I recently got a sewing machine for Christmas, which my mum, who is, although not prolific, reasonably experienced with sewing and sewing machines, along with being the worlds best Googler, chose for me. My specifications were something that was relatively basic but as reliable and flexible as possible. It's a long story with things not arriving on time before I went back to uni etc, but I ended up getting a John Lewis JL125, which seemed like a great little machine for the price she paid. And indeed, up till now, it has proved to be wonderful.
However, I just bought a zipper foot, assuming that it would fit my machine; that they were fairly universal, especially with it being John Lewis (who are known over here for being especially reliable and having excellent customer service). I can't find a way of fitting it to my mahcine, and I'm now concerned that actually it has a non-universal fitting for the foot, especially as their website does not have any feet at all for sale (slthough it is clear from the instructions that, at time of writing at least, there were zipper feet available for my machine).
Has anyone else got a JL machine, and have you had the same problem? Or am I just entirely mis-undertanding how the foot is supposed to fit?
