More Presser Feet Than You Will Ever Need

Awesome set of presser feet with so much all in one set for an excellent price. Plus a key to what they are all. Over these last 3 1/2 years, I've picked up quite a few sewing tools that have really helped to improve my sewing. Some of the best ones have been the various presser feet I've bought. Our machines can sew awesome things on their own, but match the right stitch with the right presser foot, or the right project with the right foot and suddenly it can be even more fun and give you even better sewing results or open up new finishes that you can't do otherwise such as pintucks.

When I look back now, I spent quite a bit on those few feet.  I bought:

But there were still quite a few more that I had on my wish list.  Trouble is at $9.99 or $12.99 (or more) per foot, the price of them was really starting to add up.

Then one of the members in our sewing chat group posted a picture of a set of sewing presser feet she bought and hallelujah – all my presser foot needs and desires were answered in a single box of sewing goodness.  I ordered one right away.

You can also get these on Amazon UK here – 32 Piece Presser Foot set (Amazon UK)

What's good and what's bad

Some of these sets on Amazon get mixed reviews so I read through quite a lot of them to find out why.  Turns out people love the feet, they are all just fine, snap onto any of the regular fit low-shank machines, and are all nicely made, good quality as you would hope.  What people do complain about is the packaging, and some of the complaints are a bit silly I think and some are valid.

1 – the box looked different.  Yes indeed, these sets of feet seem to come in a couple of different boxes and you might get the one pictured or you might get a slightly different box.  Some seem to come in a moulded plastic box with cover (like mine), some in a cardboard box with a foam inner. Remember you are buying the feet, the box really isn't so important if it looks different so long as it works!

2 – the names of the feet are in Chinese.  Seems some lucky people get this set in English, some in Chinese and probably that is more common. Therefore if you are fairly new to sewing or just not familiar with all of the feet, you might not know which is which.  I have a solution for you if you get the Chinese descriptions – simply save this article to check out all of the pictures or download the PDF with the names of the feet on it and keep that with your box. Easy.


What feet are included?

Here's a large picture of the box as it comes with all of the feet.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI've got all of the feet included in the set pictured here one row at a time, so the first picture is the first row, the second picture is the second row and so on.  That should help identify which is which and remember, Google is your friend if you need to know what each foot does and how to use it.

Sometimes these feet can be used for several purposes and also might be known by several different names – be prepared to experiment and see what you can do with them all.  There is a lot here I still have to learn about, for example, what is the difference between a rolled hem foot and a round rolled hem foot – I will actually enjoy trying them out and learning more.  There are also several called a Cording Foot and they can look quite different depending on what type of cord you want to use, so check out all of those possibilities too.  I'm already enjoying the knit foot, it's like a little mini walking foot.






Some of these feet you might never use, but for such a great price you can get all of the feet you really do need and use for much cheaper than buying them individually.  As your sewing skills broaden the feet you need will already be there in your sewing box waiting for you.

I hope to follow up with more articles looking at the various different feet, but there are a lot so that will take some time.  In the meantime, here at the bottom is a summary of a few articles to get you going.

Pin and share this image to help out anyone who bought the set and doesn't know which is which, so they can come over and download the picture with all the names on it.  They'll thank you!

    Wondering can these presser feet be used on any brand of sewing machine? I have a Janome and I thought you could only use Janome brand?

  2. westozi says:

    I have a Bernina 930 which has a high shank. I bought an extra piece that converts it to a low shank for my ruffles foot. With 1 converter, not expensive you can use all these feet with a high shank machine as well

    • mhormils says:

      Westozi – I found this converter: Presser Foot Adaptor, Bernina #0019477000.

      “This generic Bernina adapter attaches to your presser foot bar to allow your Bernina Sewing Machine to use standard screw on low shank presser feet”

      Will that allow me to use all of these presser feet? Are some of the presser feet snap on? I have a wonderful old Bernina 1030.

  3. Bee Hardy says:

    You are such an angel. I, too, got a set in Chinese…thanks for being a lifeboat in my storm.

  4. Sandra Betts says:

    I do not see an adapter/ankle in this set. What size ankle do they fit? Can this ankle or quick release adapter be purchased separately ?

  5. VickieP says:

    Thanks for this post Deby! I have one of these packs and never knew the names of some of the feet. This will definitely help!!

  6. Linda Cadzow says:

    Many or the sets on Amazon specifically say for a “low shank” machine. Mine is a “high shank” — I’m not really sure of why it would make a difference for snap-on feet. Any thoughts or advice on this?

  7. Diane Willett says:

    Great info & inspiration, thank you for sharing. Just bought a binding foot for quilts since tendinitis prevents me from hand binding at present. Will try an invisible zipper foot soon…our 2 GSD puppies like to eat the zipper pulls and wreak the zippers of the dog beds I made them…maybe if they can’t see them then they won’t eat them! Thanks again.

    • Kerry says:

      My dog did the same thing, so I replaced the zipper with velcro, and he hasn’t done anything to it, so it seems to be better. Will have to get around to doing the second one now, as he’s discovered he can put his head inside the cover.

  8. Jeanette Smith says:

    Awesome! One stop information very very helpful and understandable. Thank you.

  9. Lois says:

    I took your advice and bought a 42 piece presser foot set. Can’t wait to try some of them. Thanks for the advice.

  10. Ei says:

    do they fit a Pfaff??

    • Minna says:

      No, they don’t. My Ambition has a wider bar, they don’t fit. I don’t know about older Pfaff’s but I don’t think these will fit. The attachment bar is aprox 5.5 mm wide in these. Pfaff almost 8 mm.

  11. Peg says:

    Great info. How about a tute on how to use these feet. My dealer is out of business so NO help thee.

  12. For some reason my comment earlier today didn’t work….

    You need to edit this article to let people know that these presser feet do not work in every machine brand.

    For example Bernina, these won’t work, unless you buy an adaptor foot from Bernina, which are not cheap. Also the adaptor foot I have for a Bernina, is not a foot that these feet will work with. The adaptor foot works with those invisible zipper feet in the hang sell section of hobby.

    Please investigate further so a beginner sewer doesn’t purchase these feet and find out they can’t use them unless they get a special branded foot.

  13. Merle says:

    Please edit your article to let the beginner sewer know to not just go and buy these boxes of feet but check that they will work with their machine brand. Different sewing machine brands have different feet attachments. For example these will not work with a Bernina, unless they make a foot adapter which you attach to the machine a then attach these feet to. There is an adapter you can buy which I have used for an invisible foot that I bought hang sell in a fabric supply store and the Bernina adapter is not cheap either. But will that adapter fit these feet, not the one I have.

  14. Joanne Roots-Rochon says:

    I have this set also. The biggest complaint I see is that the list is on the bottom of the box, and the I’ll spill out when checking. Okay so it’s not rocket science, just photo copy the list on the back and tape it on tje front..TADA!!

  15. Linda Clawges says:

    Thanks for this! I have all of these feet. I’m new to sewing and am trying to teach myself. Do you have info you have posted about what each foot is for a a lil demo of each? I’m a visual learner and find it easier watching demos. Also I’m making reusable swiffer wet jet pads and it says to use a serger for the raw edge I don’t have a serger is there a foot I can use that would do almost the same thing as a serger?

    • Sandy says:

      Hi Linda. I’m new to sewing, too. I’ve seen several videos on YouTube and Pinterest on sewing without a serger. Most suggest using a zig zag stitch near the edge of the fabric. I haven’t tried it myself, but I hope it works well for you.

    • Wendy says:

      An overcast stitch is what you need. although a zig zag stitch works fine also. Most machines have both stitches in their library of stitches. Use the zig zag foot for these stitches. Your machine manual should tell you how to use each foot and where to position your fabric so that it works just right. Make sure you set your machine on the correct stitch number and move the wheel by hand a couple times to make sure it won’t break the needle. And as always, try to do a couple sample stitches on fabric scraps of the same material.

  16. Eileen says:

    Thank you for the very comprehensive info on machine low shank presser feet. I had received a set from sewing with Nancy and have lost the description of the feet.Now because you have put in a discription of the feet I can now see what I have and what I will have to still get ,again thank you so much very helpfull.

  17. Rita says:

    Hi, very beautiful article! Can You indicate to me where can I find informations about the difference between a rolled hem foot and a round rolled hem foot ? ThankYou very much! 🙂

  18. Marleen Wallstedt says:

    I have this kit. I haven’t tried all of the presser feet. So far these are the ones I’ve tried and work on my Janome DC2011. 6mm round rolled hem foot, gathering foot, 6mm rolled hem, darning foot, 1/4 inch foot, edge joining foot. But these are the ones that didn’t work because the needle opening didn’t work for any needle position on my machine. Didn’t work: Edge stitch foot, embroidery free motion foot, adjustable binding foot. The needle struck different parts of the foot and broke. I don’t think it is my machine because the ones I’ve tried work fine.

  19. kalsoom says:

    I have a singer heavy duty. will these fit for my machine?

  20. Jeanette says:

    Do you have a book on how to use these machine feet

  21. DJ Johnson says:

    I bought one of the 48 piece sets from amazon. Just returned it today. I was so excited to get it. I ran upstairs and tried one or two on my machine. They fit. I was ecstatic. A couple of days later I actually had the ocasion to use some of the feet and to my dismay, I started breaking needles. Well after several attempts I started really looking at the feet and how they actually fit my machine. All fit the shank but only a few lined up with my machines throat plate therfore breaking needles right and left. So very close but off just enough that the slightest movement and snap! I’m so dissapointed. I have a Husqvarna Viking Diamond Royale. The individual feet are quite expensive if you know of any of these kits that actually fit and align with the throat plate, I’d be intrested.

    • Mayra at So Sew Easy says:

      Doubt it! If you have Husqvarna, Pfaff or Bernina do not bother with these generic feet.

      • Carolina says:

        I have a Bernina Classic 1008 and I bought on Wish ( like amazon) a set with 72 for my surprise some of them do fit and work .

        • Darlene Formanek says:

          That is interesting as Bernina does not fit snap on feet I have a bernina 1000 and the set up is way different

  22. Julie says:

    I have a Janome DC 3018 lo shank, will these work for my machine?

  23. Lynne LePore says:

    Hi, I have a Baby Lock Sophia 2… will they fit? Thanks!

  24. Hannah says:

    I received these as a gift a while ago and finally got a chance to use them today. However I couldn’t get them to fit my Singer 3343c. The bar on the foot seemed to be too skinny to snap on. Am I missing something? I know they would really help my sewing projects and am eager to try them. Has anyone else had this problem?

    • Ashley says:

      Hannah, I have the same problem. I’m trying to find either an adapter that would work so we could use the wider feet or a set that has smaller bars. Were you ever able to find a solution for your Singer 3343C?

  25. susan smith says:

    I have the presser foot kit but I have not directions on how to use them. I don’t know how to set my stitches,etc
    Can you help me ?

    • Mayra at So Sew Easy says:

      Hi Susan, you need to start one by one. All the feets are labeled. First decided what you want to make then choose the foot you need. Let me know what you are making then I will help you with the stitches.

    • Purvi says:

      Mostly all foot videos are uploaded on youtube…u can watch and learn…
      From shere to get this foot kit?

    • Darlene Formanek says:

      Google it or You Tube them.

  26. Barbara White says:

    Which one will send the set to the Unites States? The first 4 or 5 I looked at said they do not send to the United States or my selected area?

  27. I would love to find a set that would fit my MC9900 Janome

  28. Lorraine Newman says:

    Thank you so much for this. Now, my set came in a different layout, but using your key I was able to cross-reference all the feet and I’ve created this document. I have laminated it and stuck it to the top of the box my feet came in, so it’s always there for reference. I hope it helps others.

  29. Wendy West says:

    I bought these online for my Janome…so far they work. I’m happy to have found this site, as my descriptions were all in Chinese….certainly helps to have that cleared up. The concealed/invisable foot is different from the old plastic one that I had..

  30. Danie Duchesne says:

    I received a set like this as a gift. The feet don’t match my Janome MC 15000 (9mm machine). I have a special adapter for my Bernina 1080. The feet fit the adapter but I cannot use them all. Somehow, with about half the feet, the needle hit the edge of the feet, so most are useless.

  31. Sophie says:

    Too bad I didn’t see a Walking Foot (Even Feed). That’s the one I seem to go to the most!

  32. Bijoux says:

    I bought a set like the one mentioned about a year ago. It was a great buy because buying feet separately was getting expensive. Glad I bought it, and now finding your easier to read version is so helpful…Thank you – Thank you…. for taking the time to help your loyal readers. So many helpful tips and patterns. Love the free ones of course 🙂 Very appreciated.

  33. Rabeea says:

    I love ur article! I bought this set from our local online shop, came in cardborad packing but with a printed sheet with each foot pic n its name, so its a bonus. I m so excited, ur blog is awesome!

  34. Donna says:

    Thanks for sharing this. I inherited a ton of presser feet with my mother’s sewing machine and am not sure how/what to use them all for. Do you have any suggestion for how I might gain some understanding of these?

  35. Amy says:

    They are exactly what I need but will they fit a Janome CXl301, please

    • Rachael Spencer says:

      Amy, I realize I’m late to the party here, but yes, these will fit your machine. They will actually work on any machine that uses snap on feet. You just have to use different adapters with each one. I use them on my wonderful new Janome, my little Juki, as well as my Kenmore that is as old as me.

  36. Zilpa says:

    I bought a set of these feet for my Pfaff – not an exotic make of machine you would think. However, the snap on bit for these feet is just a fraction too small to fit my machine.

  37. Olga Margareth Ramos says:

    Can’t download the pdf file….. ?

  38. I have bought one of these kits for a Singer and had to purchase the spring foot separately. The needle keeps hitting a millimeter north of the hole in the presser foot. I was only able to use the zipper foot. Not sure of this a work around or maybe something is wrong with my machine

  39. Janet says:

    Wow! So, which would you use for jeans hemming? I have a Jean-a-ma-jig, but haven’t used it yet.

  40. .... says:

    Please be aware that there sets of 32 presser feet which have different feet! An alternative does not have a teflon foot although there is a white foot just like the one pictured and it has a Jaguar Zigzag foot and not two edge joining/stitching feet!!
    When researching for mine, before buying, I came across one review that said there were differences in quality of the different products.

What do you think?
