I think it depends on your shank and everything I see on your model says low shank not high. I would double check that, a vertical is one that the bobbin does not just drop in, you open the front & take out the case and put your bobbin in and a horizontal is the one that you just open the the plastic slide on top of your machine and put it in. Take your manual in with you to Sears and let them help you get the right one.

I just looked at your free manual on the www.singerco.com site and it looks a little complicated to do, Do you think that maybe downloading the manual and enlarging the diagrams on pages 10 & 11 may help you? If not, call Singer customer service, at 1-800-4singer and ask for some advice. Good luck

Are you making sure the little metal bar is lined up with the little snap on grip?

I have a pfaff 213 sewing machine and want to know what category to look under to get a couple of different feet. Machine is old but works well.


The following link should be helpful--your machine model is listed at the bottom of the page:

Pfaff Presser Feet

Your machine:
"The following Pfaff models use low shank and snap on Generic presser feet, you will need to purchase the Generic Pfaff snap on shank to use the Generic snap on feet."

Your machine uses the same low-shank presser feet as the Model 211:

E99670 short shank, or snap on presser feet?


Make sure--Does the machine take a short shank presser foot? If so, you can replace it with a short shank zig-zag presser foot. You can probably go to a regular sewing machine repair shop and find a replacement presser foot.

**NOTE--the links below are examples of what is available. I cannot vouch for these vendors as I've never purchased from them. Do your own due diligence before purchasing!!!

Here's an open toe presser foot:

or a regular zig-zag foot:

OR you can buy a short shank adapter and a kit of snap-on presser feet that will give you a big variety of different kinds of presser feet, probably including a zipper foot, hemmer foot, 1/4" quilting foot, darning foot, teflon foot, etc....(probably more than she will ever use!) The snap-on kits are available online, try eBay or some of the other sites. They most likely are not Singer brand, but are most likely generic. However, if your granddaughter is just learning, this may be the broadest variety of choices.

These are examples of snap-on presser feet available.

Snap-on Adapter example (most kits do not include the adapter):

Pfaff Expresions 3.0. Using my zipper foot with 3 teeth. But can not get the needle to position to sew close to zipper


Um, not sure what presser foot you are using--there are several.

If it is the invisible zipper foot, there is a groove in the bottom of the presser foot that straddles one strip of zipper teeth which positions it close to the needle. Zipper foot #4 snaps to either side to enable the needle to be close to the zipper teeth. The Narrow Adjustable Zipper/Straight Stitch and the Non-Stick Zipper Feet are moveable left or right.

Can the presser foot be raised slightly on pfaff tiptronic 2030 to facilitate free motion quilting? There is not enough clearance with feed dogs down to freely move material to quilt. Thank you.


You need a special foot for free motion quilting--it is slightly shorter in height than a regular presser foot, which essentially provides space between the presser foot and the needle plate to manually move the fabric. Sometimes machines came with a standard darning foot accessory. Your Pfaff dealer probably has at least one style in stock. But there are other specialty feet you can probably use, ie Big Foot, clear free motion foot, C-shaped, oval, etc. You can also purchase a shank adapter (verify it is the correct shank for your machine) and use it with a kit of snap-on presser feet so you can have a variety of presser feet for different functions.

PFAFF sewing machine: How do I attach the gathering foot on the PFAFF 1473?


usually a gathering foot or ruffler fits on like one would fit an old style foot. Unscrew the thumb screw that holds the snap on foot holder.... and place your foot making sure the needle holder thumb screw holds the lever on the other side. And tighten the thumb screw to hold on the foot.

Good luck.

How do I attach the darning foot on a Pfaff Expressions 2.0 please?


on the machine, there is a foot holder attached to the machine, & the feet to the machine will either be snapped on to the foot holder or there is a screw to undo. most of the new machine are snap on feet, take the presser bar lever up, there is a little lever on the back of the foot holder, & you push it toward the foot holder bar & it will release the foot & you put the other foot down on the needle plate & bring the foot holder bar down on the foot until it snaps on to the foot

Fabric does not move forward


Either the presser foot does not have enough pressure on it or it is not lowering all the way to the fabric.
Remove the fabric.lower the presser foot.If the presser foot has no or little pressure look for the pressure regulator on top the machine or on the left side and see if you can make it tighter. Not all machines have this.Look to see if there is space between the foot and the teeth when you turn the handwheel. If there is space then the machine needs an adjustment.
