You cannot beat this vintage Singer attachment for machine embroidery, free-motion quilting, or thread painting on your slant model. Yes, here's your chance to own a hard-to-find, reliable vintage slant-shank Darning & Embroidery foot -- a quilter's delight for free-motion stitching. It's very hard to find this all-metal, boxed version.
This attachment will fit the 401, 403 & 404 models, plus 500 series.
I embroidered this pretty test flower on my 401A, which, by the way, is my most favorite machine that Singer ever made. I use mine for all kinds of sewing artistry -- almost exclusively. You won't want to miss out on owning this fine piece of precision equipment for your own 401. It works like a charm.
Using the twin needle (included with your purchase) and two thread shades creates a shadow effect as shown in the demo photos (instructions in the attachment's manual).
I tried the spiral stitch on the various sizes of dots. (The Singer Sewing Skills Reference Book has great beginner's instructions for various machine embroidery stitches.)
Are you ready for this? This attachment also gives you the capability to add a satin-stitched scallop edge to a pillowcase or dresser scarf. The instructions for accomplishing this effect are also in the attachment's manual. I used a dark green so the stitches would show up well for these photos.
After the satin stitch is finished, you'll follow the outer edge of the scallops with a straight stitch to give the edge of your work a more durable finish before trimming.
The back of the piece has a different effect, but really is just as pretty (see photo).
It's my educated opinion that this attachment will also fit the 301 model. However, I cannot confirm this at this time. So if the buyer is the owner of a 301 and finds that it will not work on their machine, I will gladly allow them to return the attachment for a full refund (including original and return shipping.)
So, snap up this fabulous attachment set for Monogramming, Embroidery, Decorative Designs, Darning. Sign & date a special baby quilt. Adorn the bodice of a sweet frilly dress with some happy little flowers. Edge a lacy pillowcase with your own fancy stitches. Your imagination is the limit.
