The Walking Presser Foot is one of the most elusive of all Singer attachments, a most-coveted treasure -- one of Singer's finest inventions as far as attachments go. Featherweight owners feel it's a must-have for quilting, but this attachment also fits other low shank models (such as 66, 99, 101, 201 and more).
This vintage walking foot is in near-mint condition. The beauty of the 'Penguin' is that there are no plastic parts -- all metal. A practically indestructible & oh-so-useful Singer fashion aid. It's collection-worthy but way too useful to put on a shelf for display only.
Sew thick, slick or 'mismatched' fabrics (one layer of fleece and a second layer of something like leather) -- no slipping or misalignment. You will be amazed that you don't even have to use pins. The Penguin's various 'toes' allow you to sew accurate 1/4 and 3/8 inch seams without marking or measuring. Simply align your fabric's edge with the proper toe, and off you go.
Shown in the photos are a couple of quick samplings of the Penguin's stitching, accomplished on my own Singer 221. I'm a hand-quilter at heart, so I grabbed my daughter's baby quilt to make some test stitches -- just to show you how it compares to hand stitching. Not bad, huh? This hand quilter has been won over! When the need arises for some quick quilting, the Singer Penguin wins, hands down. The pink thread is my wandering test stitch sample. (You probably figured that out.)
This little walking foot does not struggle whatsoever. I'll be including a nice printed scan of the instruction booklet as the original manual is no longer present. The manual suggests many uses. Make stay lines, bias seams (the weave of the fabric is neither eased nor stretched), curved seams are also easier, slotted seams, patch pockets, blanket binding, and so much more. Don't let this wonderful piece of Singer craftsmanship get away. IMPORTANT NOTE: Box and original manual not available. Attachment in excellent condition.
