ATTENTION: Let me start out by saying that this attachment is difficult to come by with original working, soft, supple, gripping pads on the attachment feet. Time can be rubber's worst enemy... simply because after all these years, most of the Hemstitcher Attachments are completely unusable with hard, brittle, or missing pads.

BUT, this Hemstitcher works PERFECTLY!
(Of course! It's from April 1930's Sewing Shoppe)


How To Use the Singer Hemstitcher & Picot Edger

First, it is easiest to remove a few of the crossthreads so that you have a  line with which to follow and allows for easier piercing of the holes on the first pass.

Going very, very slowly and gently guiding the fabric with your hands allow  the attachment to feed the fabric one stitch rotation at a time - each rotation will create another hole for the hemstitching.

When you reach the end of the row, you will have Hemstitched the first pass.  Carefully lift the presser foot and rotate your work so that you can finish with  the second pass.

Align the piercer with the first hole and going very, very, very slowly, make sure the piercer continues to go exactly in the holes with each each  commencing stitch rotation.  If it's just a little bit off, then stop and make slight adjustments to the fabric so that the piercer can get  back on track.

As you can see from the photos the rubber pads will be soft and supple, enabling even fabric gripping (an absolute necessity for correct operation)  You will receive a quality, working item. It is complete with the correct Throat Plate & Attachment Thumb Screw designed specifically for the vintage Singer Sewing Machine as well as the original box and instructions.  A made-for-you sample is also included.

** When placing the Special Throat Plate in position on a Featherweight 221, you need to make sure that the position finger of the bobbin case enters the notch of the position plate attached to the underside of the Special Throat Plate.

Granted, if you are unfamiliar with this attachment, it takes a LOT of practice and you will need to follow the directions slowly, carefully and precisely. And DEFINITELY read them all the way through before attempting your hemstitching or picot edging.

Sample sewing below, but I'm sure your imagination will be limitless for many heirloom-quality sewing ideas.

The piercer goes in and then it pops out... Depending on the position of the piercer will vary the depth of your stitch and how much the hemstitcher moves the fabric over each time.

Correct Throat Plate for Your Singer Sewing Machine
Thumb Screw
Original Box with Instruction Manual
and a 'Made-For-You' Sample


* While the The Singer Hemstitcher Attachment, Screw, Instructions and even the box can crossover different Singer model machines, it is the Throat Plate that is model-specific. You need the correct Throat Plate for your machine in order for the Hemstitcher to work properly.  A generic feed cover plate will not work. The Hemstitcher & Picot Edger Throat Plate actually raises the work to the attachment.

I receive requests quite frequently for the much-desired Featherweight 221 Throat Plate 121392.  However, because the Throat Plates are model specific and the demand for this particular part number is much greater, the 121392 is more difficult to come by. Unfortunately, they do not venture into the shoppe very often.
