I found this one on eBay - can I trust the seller that it will work on my Featherweight?

Any low shank foot should work.

Thank you!

I have that foot... I tested it on my Singer 201 and it worked great. When I ordered mine, it came in Babylock packaging. Looks exactly like the photo above with the same foot number. I also have the Bernina #71 so I use that mostly.

I just ordered it. I wanted one for my Bernina but the FW does a great straight stitch and the price was right.

Yes, the 4mm works just fine. The wider ones don't work because you can't adjust the needle position, but this one is good.

Also, if you don't like the way the seam forms in relation to the needle and the edge of the fabric, I have used both a vintage Singer feller, and a vintage Pfaff feller. These work really well, but they are not hinged, so you have to be careful when going over seams.

I read your post on using the hemmer for flat felling a seam and think that's pretty sweet too.
