Friday Fun Fact!

You've probably noticed that some sewing machines have presser feet that easily snap on and off, and some need a screwdriver to change the foot.

Check out the comparison between the snap-on foot and the shank foot at right - the shank foot (top) attaches to your machine with a screw, while the snap-on foot just pops on and off so you can easily switch between feet!

But did you know that the snap-on ankle is not actually part of the machine? In fact, you can make ANY machine a quick-release machine, just by adding a simple adapter!

You should know if your machine has a high shank, low shank, or slanted shank before choosing a quick-release ankle or any accessory. 

You still need to remove the ankle to use some specialty feet, such as walking feet or free-motion quilting feet.

But for switching between your all-purpose foot, buttonhole foot, zipper foot, and blind hem foot, the quick release is a real time saver!
