  1. When you used the Singer side cutter foot I think you said you were using it on your Singer sewing machine. I have a Brother low shank machine and wondered if it will work on a Brother machine. Thanks

    1. Hi BJ! I can’t guarantee that the side cutter foot will fit your machine. If it’s a low shank, it could possibly work, but I’m not 100% sure.
