So.....what is it, exactly?  In all the heaps of attachments I've got - this is the only one of its kind, lol.  Is it for quilting?  It's...bouncy, lol.  I sometimes amaze myself that I have so many machines & knowledge of them....and then, well, not.....

I've heard good things about them, but never tried this particular one.

With all the gazillions of fiddly bits you have, you don't know this one? I'd have bet you had half a dozen of these lol. I've seen these sell for good money on Ebay, and even more here -

I got mine years ago in a shoe box full of fiddly bits someone sent me. I didn't know what it was at first either.[wink]

The dumb thing is, I use one on other machines....but my brain was stuck on 'free motion quilting' and all I could think was it was too old for that, lol.  Really I should think longer before asking questions, lol!  [crazy]

The one you have is the needle clamp darning attachment. The featherweight one in the ad is a regular presser foot darning attachment. On an older Singer 27 for example, you could take the entire presser foot bar off. That makes it easier to darn in a wood hoop. I have this attachment and the feed dog delete needle plate here https://www.flickr.com/photos/132113927@N03/26079517246/in/dateposted-public/   They are fun.

Thanks, John.  The fact that it has the needle clamp is part of what threw me.  (It was in a Wheeler & Wilson attachment box with the feed dog cover plate - no instructions...)

I think they are one of the rarest sets for darning. The feed dog blank seems to be rarer than the clamp. I have never seen the set as a whole for sale yet. Nice to have a set Hilltophomesteader.

Johnstuart, I couldn't get your flickr link to work, so didn't see your pic to know what darning plate you're referring to.  The attachment is called a "Stripper Foot" in Singer's Machine Sewing book and is a really handy one to have for anyone who owns a back-clamping 66-1 and wants to use it to darn or embroider.  Stripper feet are fairly easy to find on eBay, or at least they are for me.  I've got a few sitting around here that I need to get rid of, but just haven't had time to get to it.
