Singer 25527(?) Seam Guide: This 2” guide does not have a number marked on it.
Singer 160359, Multi Binder Foot - Slant Shank: For slant shank machines. This fits in the place of the standard foot.
Singer 120855, 5/64 Foot Hemmer: Fit the Foot Hemmer in place of the standard foot. Clip off the right hand corner of the material and with the foot raised place the material from left to right under the foot. With its edge slightly raised, insert the corner into the mouth of the hemmer, easing it along until it fills the curl and reaches the needle. Lower the foot and make a few stitches. Guide the material into the hemmer. If the edge starts to run out, move hand to left: should too much material run in, move to right. Hemming and sewing on lace can be done in one operation by sliding lace through the slot in the side of the attachment and over the hem. A ‘run and fell’ seam can also be produced.
Singer 120598, Ruffler: Fits in place of standard presser foot with the operating lever engaging the needle clamp screw. This is adjustable for 1, 6 or 12 stitch ruffling. Has an adjusting screw which regulates the fullness of the gather and an adjusting finger which sets the size of the plaits. For gathering the adjusting finger should be moved forwards towards the needle so that it is not in operation.
Singer 36865, Edge Stitcher: Fits in place of standard presser foot. This combined Edge-Stitching, Lace-Joining and Piping attachment must be kept accurately on the extreme edge of the material. The slots are guides for sewing together laces, insertions and embroideries, sewing in position hemmed or folded edges, piping or sewing flat braid to a garment. The distance of the line of stitching from the edge of the material in the slots, can be regulated by pushing the blue spring lug to the right or the left. Further instructions can be found in the Attachments Section of the machine's User’s Manual.
Singer 35931, Adjustable Hemmer: This attachment fits in place of the standard presser foot and will make hems from 3/16th to 1” wide. Loosen the thumb screw at the front of the hemmer and move the slide to the right or left until the small pointer is against the desired width; then tighten the screw. Insert the edge of the fabric between the slide and the number gauge, and draw it backwards and forwards until the hem is formed. Lower the presser bar and start to sew making sure the guide remains full of cloth. To make a hem more than 1” wide either remove the thumb screw and slide, or loosen the screw and draw the slide to the right as far as it will go and then turn it towards you. Fold and crease the hem to the desired width, pass the fold under the extension at the right of the hemmer, then insert the edge into the folder and sew.
