Oh wow, I was about to make this post.  I too inherited my granny's sewing machine which was beyond repair (having your uncle put it outside for about a year in all weather will do that), but have all these presser feet.  Unfortunately, it's a kenmore, too, so it doesn't help me with my singer machine. 


Thanks so much DingDong for posting this, and seleniebeanie for explaining all of the pieces.

My Kenmore has the same feet and I found I could interchange them with my other machines.
 senleniebeanie is correct on the name of all the feet.

Hey, I wish I could.  Unless I'm missing something, it doesn't work with my Singer.  I have the new snap-on feet type machine, and I think these are called low shank ones?  Did you get yours on a snap-on machine?

You can get an adapter shank if you have an older style sewing machine, so that an older machine can use the snap on/off new style feet

If you have a newer machine, the shank unscrews on the side (use that tiny screwdriver that's in your case Smiley then you can screw on the older style feet. I like some of them better than some of the snap on ones.

That would've been a fun contest - guess the sewing accessories

Inspiration without application is moot.

Incredible inheritance there! seleniebeanie  named them all right. How did you get to be so smart seleniebeanie ? Smiley

I must say, I envy a few of those feet. *sigh*
