This is a clear plastic storage box with a hinged lid and 18 compartments, each approximately 1 3/8" square, and including the lid, about as deep. The compartments are the perfect size for most of my Janome/Kenmore feet. The exceptions, of course, are large items such as an automatic buttonholer or walking foot. The overall dimensions, according to the JoAnn website, are 8.875"x 4.875"x1.325".

I like the streamlined design and crystal-clear plastic. It closes securely enough without any latching hardware. The box slides right into the drawer where I keep my sewing machine accessories - not too big, not too small. I used a labeler to label each compartment, so I can find the right foot at a glance and keep them tidy.

I don't remember exactly how much I paid for this item, but it wasn't much. The current price at various online retailers varies from five to ten dollars.

ArtBin boxes are easily found online and in stores, often with beading supplies rather than near sewing notions.

I recommend this item for anyone needing to store standard-sized sewing machine feet. However, if you want a resilient plastic material, a handle or locking device, this isn't for you. This box appears to be compatible with a larger line of storage and transportation notions (although I do not use it this way so I cannot comment on it).

Was looking at these storage solutions for my feet for 3 machines and now knowing it will fit most of the feet, I will buy. Thanks for the review.
