Foot of the Month–#57

Piece with ease. May’s foot of the month is #57 Patchwork Foot with guide, a must-have foot for quilters (and even useful for non-quilters!)


The #57 Patchwork Foot is different than the standard #37–it’s nifty guide on the right side helps you maintain your scant 1/4″. Traditionally regarded as a quilting or piecing foot, any pattern requiring a 1/4″ seam allowance is one where this foot would be useful–bags and pouches, french seams, and more. The guide is spring loaded so it has no trouble passing over seam allowances. Additionally, the inner edge of the front toes is 1/8″ from the center needle position and can be used for precision sewing like edgestitching and toptitching.

The #57 Patchwork Foot is 25% for the rest of May. Patchwork Society members, I’m looking at you! This is a great opportunity to pick one up!
