Vintage Singer 301, 401 Slant Shank Smooth & Even Feed (Walking) Foot Attachment

This Walking Foot is designed to fit properly on the Singer 301 & many other SLANT shank Singer Sewing Machine models.

  1. Make sure you remove this thread cutter before attaching the Walking Foot to the machine.
  2. Fork goes over the needle clamp screw
  3. Attach left prongs over presser bar and screw down tightly with your presser foot thumb screw.

You are wise to be conscientious of some of the new walking feet widely available - while many look alike, most are not designed with the old-fashioned Singer machine in mind.  Look closely at the photographs and you will see how the "teeth" on this particular walking foot are perfectly in line with the teeth on the feed dogs of the Singer sewing machines.

A guide bar is included which can fit in either direction for straight-stitching equidistant to other quilting lines. 

With your Walking Foot, you can stitch "hard to feed" fabrics with no slipping, sticking or mis-matching.  Perfect for smooth, even seams, this foot is also ideal for flawless topstitching. 

Use it when stitching:

  • Knits, stretch fabrics, synthetics
  • Shiny fabrics - vinyls, patents, satins
  • Bonded fabrics
  • Pile fabrics - velvets, fake furs, brushed fabrics
  • Plaids, stripes, patterns
