Sewing Machine Feet – How to store them

Share the love!

Do you find that your sewing machine feet are all over the place?  I currently can’t even find them! (thinking they are in another room in the house).  They aren’t the largest of size, and they get used and then not put back where they began.  –what? who does that?

These are pretty important pieces in your sewing room.  And, pretty important to your sewing machine.  It’s time to give them the respect they deserve and find a new home for them.

  • weekly pill boxes

    The best thing I bought for my DSM feet is a match box car carrier. It’s like $7 and sometimes on sale at the big discount stores. HIH

    I am a firm believer in keeping SM accessories and manuals with their intended machines. I like to make sewing machine covers as well as matching drawstring bags in 3 sizes to hold 1) the manual; 2) the foot controller; and 3) the accessories. You can even make matching pincushions and needle keepers to go along with the mat with the pockets.
    If you have the ability to scan your manuals, creating e-copies will be helpful for a long time.

    I would like a label of each presser foot so I know what each one is for ..I can get a box if I just have pictures of each presser foot and what it’s used for ….I would really appreciate if you could do that …I have alot of presser feet but don’t know what each one is for..
    Thank you
