I began teaching myself to sew this month. I have two machines, a Brother XL2600i and a Singer 338. The Brother has snap-on feet and the Singer low-shank. Yesterday I noticed that the Brother appears to use low shank feet via an adapter. I tried a couple of low-shank on the Brother and they fit and worked, but one low-shank foot, a piping foot, caused the needle to hit the foot slightly, making it unusable This made me think that perhaps the Brother does not use low-shank, but something very much like low-shank feet, but not an exact match. Is this true?

While both of these machines are low shank, not all feet are interchangeable between low shank machines.

Needle position may be the reason the needle hit the foot.

Click here for a brief overview of how to determine the type of foot the machine requires.
