Fringe Foot
This foot is used to create and attach fringe to edges.
1.
2.
This foot is metal and plastic.
Remove current presser foot and shank.
Loosen thumb screw using needle plate screwdriver. Attach Fringe
Foot. Tighten thumb screw.
3. Set the machine to zigzag stitch.
4. Set the stitch length to 0.3-0.8. Prior to sewing, turn the handwheel
toward you to ensure that the needle will not hit the center bar when
stitching.
5. Set the stitch width to its widest width. For best results, you may need
to loosen top thread tension.
6. Fold under the project’s fabric edge and press. Press a piece of scrap
fabric of equal length. Put the two pressed edges together and center
them under the Fringe Foot.
7. Sew slowly and gently guide the fabric.
8. Pull out the bobbin thread from the stitching.
9. Remove the Fringe Foot. Attach the General Purpose Foot and shank.
10. Using the straight stretch stitch, sew between the edge of the zigzag
stitch and the project’s fabric edge. Make sure to sew on top of the
zigzag stitching. Pull away the scrap fabric.

Move the plastic sleeve that covers the needle clamp screw to the right.
Attach the Cut & Hem, making sure the attachment’s “arm” fits around
the needle bar thumb screw. Tighten the thumb screw, securing the foot.
Set the machine to zigzag stitch or overedge stitch.
Slowly turn the handwheel towards you; the needle should go over the
stitch finger on the foot. If the needle is hitting the metal stitch finger or
metal side, then widen or narrow the stitch width. Never use a straight
stitch.
Cut a ½” wide by 1”deep notch at the top edge of your fabric.
Place the fabric OVER the first metal platform and then UNDER the
second metal platform. If the foot is not cutting, it is usually because the
material is not placed OVER the first metal platform.
Sew slowly and gently guide the fabric. The Cut & Hem works best if no
more than ½” is being trimmed.
This foot is metal and plastic.

Manually lead the thread from the needle through the opening of the foot,
and then slip the thread under and behind the foot.
Use double-faced (basting) tape to hold the fabric pieces together for
sewing, which will prevent either layer from slipping.
Place fabric under the presser foot. Lower the Roller Foot and sew. Any
stitch may be used with this foot.
This foot is metal and plastic.

This foot is metal.
5.
Select straight stitch.
Snap on the ¼” Foot.
Stitch the pre-cut fabric pieces together. Keep the fabric’s edge even
with the foot’s right edge. There is no need to tie off at the seam
ends.
Iron the seams flat, ensuring precision of your work and better
alignment of all corners. All seam allowances should be positioned in
one direction and preferably be placed under the darker-colored
material, so they cannot be seen on the right fabric side.
Place matching strips together as desired and pin together at each
corner, ensuring accurate alignment of all corners. Remember that
even the smallest discrepancies will add up and distort your design.
Join together the strips and iron the seams. Upon completion of
your patchwork design, iron again on the right fabric side.
Cording Foot
This foot is used for gathering, shirring, decorative stitching or applying trims.

Thread the needle with the machine embroidery thread. If you have
chosen a rayon sheen as embroidery thread, use a special bobbin thread,
called bobbin fill, in the bobbin.
Reduce the upper thread tension. This will allow the needle thread to
produce a smoother finish on the fabric’s surface, giving the embroidery
a more pronounced appearance.
Pull the cord under the small black tension disc from right to left, so
that it runs through the foot’s center groove. Place the cord end under
the Cording Foot, so it runs in the foot’s center groove at the back.
Hint: To prevent fabric distortion, reinforce the fabric with stabilizer.
Place the fabric under the Cording Foot. Sew along the marked lines.
The cord is automatically applied while sewing and overstitched with a
narrow satin stitch. Make sure the cord is completely overstitched. If
not, increase the width of the zigzag stitch.
At the beginning and end of the seam, secure the threads at the back of
the fabric by tying a knot or stitching the cord in place. The cord can
simply be trimmed at both ends.
If using the foot to gather, select zigzag stitch to stitch over the cord.
Remove fabric from machine and draw fabric in while holding the cord
until desired gathers are achieved.
This foot is metal.

Drop the feed dogs. To do so, remove the extension table to reveal the
free arm. On the backside of the exposed area, move the lever.
Thread the needle with the machine embroidery thread. If you have
chosen a rayon sheen as embroidery thread, use a special bobbin
thread in the bobbin, called bobbin fill.
Set the machine to straight stitch or zigzag stitch.
Place a stabilizer on the back layer of the fabric to create fabric
stiffness and prevent distortion of the fabric during embroidering. The
fabric stabilizer can be further secured by spraying it with a temporary
adhesive.
Draw your chosen design, or letter for sewing a monogram, on the
fabric using a disappearing fabric-marking pen.
Hoop the fabric. Pull it tight with an even tension.
Place the hooped fabric under the Darning / Freehand Embroidery
Foot and lower the foot.
Sew with a fast speed while guiding the fabric slowly.
When the design is complete, pull the threads to the back and neaten
or tie a knot. Trim away the stabilizer and press the fabric.
Open Toe Foot
This foot provides a more visible view of the area that you will be stitching.
Because of its open area at the front, you can see markings much more easily.

Set machine to desired stitch. Attach the Open Toe Foot.
With a marking pencil or chalk, trace the outline for your design or
pattern on the right side of the garment. Hint: Use a marker that can be
removed easily in case the stitching does not cover it completely.
Sew, following the outline you have traced onto your fabric. Any stitch
may be used with this foot.
This foot is plastic.

Invisible Zipper Foot
This foot provides a hidden closing on skirts, dresses and other garments.
1.
This foot is plastic.
Attach the Invisible Zipper Foot. Select straight stitch. Verify that the
needle will line up with the opening of the foot before starting to sew.
2. Before closing the seam on your project, use a fabric marker to mark the
desired bottom end of the zipper on both sides of the zipper opening.
3. Fold in and press the seam allowances of both opening edges and open
out the pressed edges.
4. With right sides together, place the first half of the opened zipper along
the first edge of the opening, ensuring that the teeth of the zipper end at
the creased edge.
5. Baste in place.
6. Place the fabric under the presser foot, so that the teeth of the zipper are
lined up with the groove of the zipper foot. Topstitch the zipper in place,
ensuring that the needle penetrates the tape of the zipper close to the
teeth. Continue sewing until the presser foot reaches the zipper’s slider,
backstitching at the end of the seam.
7. On the opposite side, close the zipper. With right sides together, make
sure the two sides of the zipper are properly aligned. Pin in place, open
the zipper and baste in place.
8. Place the fabric under the presser foot, so that the teeth of the zipper are
again lined up with the groove of the zipper foot. Topstitch the zipper in
place, ensuring that the needle penetrates the tape of the zipper as close
to the teeth as possible.
9. Continue sewing the second seam until the presser foot reaches the
zipper’s slider, backstitching at the end.
10. Finally, stitch the seam below the zipper closed.

Flower Stitch Attachment
This attachment provides a variety of flower patterns.
1.
This foot is metal and plastic and is
individually packaged.
Before securing the attachment, raise the needle to its highest position by
turning the handwheel toward you. Set the presser foot pressure to its
strongest pressure position, usually the highest setting.
2. Drop the feed dogs using the lever located on the back of the machine
after you remove the extension table.
3. Remove the current presser foot and shank.
4. To attach the Flower Stitch Attachment, raise lever (A) so that it sits above
the needle screw (D) and then wrap the fork (B) around the presser bar.
Tighten thumb screw (C).
5. Select the zigzag stitch or blind hem stitch. Set the upper thread tension to
1-2 and the stitch width to the desired width.
6. To place fabric under the attachment, position the center of the intended

the direction or (+) or (-) and set the setting mark (G) at the desired
position. Tighten the screw (E).
7. Hold the end of the needle thread with your left hand. Turn the
handwheel toward you slowly until the needle moves down and up again
to the highest position, then stop the handwheel. Pull the needle thread
slowly so that the bobbin thread can pull through fabric to topside of
fabric.
8. While holding the needle and bobbin threads, sew a few stitches to lock
threads. Cut threads near the seam end and sew.
9. At the end of a seam, raise needle to its highest position and lift the
presser foot lifter. Remove fabric from machine.
10. Cut threads, leaving about 15 cm (6 in) of thread. Tie off thread ends at
back of fabric. SINGER is the exclusive trademark of The Singer Company Limited S.à. r.l. or its Affiliates. ©2011 The Singer Company Limited S.à. r.l. or its Affiliates. All rights
