Big Roller Foot For a Sewing Machine?

I have been looking for this particular sewing attachment for quite some time and hope someone can help me find it. It is 5/8th inches wide. Many have said they have it until they measure it to find theirs is only 1/2 inch, thats not the one. It is solid metal, both rollers - front and back - are solid, not split. It is a standard foot and would fit many older machines. It can be high or low shank, would prefer the low shank for now.


Is there anyone who knows where I could find this?

My Granddaughter is interested in sewing, I have finely got a machine that will stay up for her to use and now I sure would like another of that foot. Even more of them would be good as when my Granddaughters come from out of state to visit for a week they could all sew on their own machine, (there are 3 girls, we had such fun last year). It would sure beat one sewing and the other 2 watching and waiting to get on the machine.

I do have more then 2 machines, I've grown to using this foot so often, that I want them to be able to work with it as well.

It has to be around somewhere.

Thank You,

This site might help:


They seem to have parts for lots of machines. It looks like the main manufacturer of machines that take 5/8 inch presser feet is Artisan.

Check with them. We have no affiliation but when searching it seemed to be the best source for sewing machine parts.

Thank you Susan, some how months ago I emailed them, sent the same picture that you see here. Only to be told that they did not have it. So I am still looking, more so now then ever as I have the machine up for the Grandaughter that lives here in town.

If there is anyone who may have one and does not use it, I will buy or trade, just let me know what you have in mind.

I bought this 10-15+ years ago, if that helps anyone. Just am not sure, could have been from the .... Sew/Fit Company, which I think was bought out by Quilters Rule, not sure. Have contacted both of them some time ago and got nowhere about the foot.


I'm sure they didn't fall off the face of the earth!

I checked my Nancy's Notions catalog and they have a roller foot that looks quite large and might be what you're looking for. You can check their website at The item numbers in the catalog I have are RFL2 (low shank), RFH2 (high shank) and RFS2 (Singer Slant). You could type those numbers to search the website I would imagine. Good luck.

What does this foot do that makes it so useful?

The back roller which is solid, makes it draw the fabric out as it is coming in , how can I say this to be understood,....... all the fabric which is under the needle and to the front and back rollers is in a balanced way. Even to the outside edge of the fabric and thats whats really important. Doesn't sound like much, but sure does make a difference. As long as the back roller is solid, the foot has the control of the fabric, no matter how far or close to the edge of the fabric you are.


The foot has control of fabric as its going back and at the same time across it, like a the letter T, think of the top of the T as the back roller and the bottom part of the T in center, the needle, now put the front roller on at bottom, in motion and its like a steam roller coming at ya! Except the fabric is going away from you. I hope that this makes sence to you.
The 1/2" roller foot is just NOT big enough to make a difference. It just don' t make it. Its like a toy not a tool.
