2nd box of attachments for White 782 Sewing Machine

The same day the other box of attachments arrived in the mail, the 2nd box I’d bought off eBay also arrived.

This one, I knew, was a hemmer set. The box is black in color, shows some wear, and is made of metal. Painted on the top is the word “Attachments” bordered by a scroll outline.

When I opened the box, there was a jumble of metal items inside but as I organized them and placed them properly, I found that this box was actually designed to store these attachments in a set manner so they are easy to find when needed.

As well as a complete hemmer set with 5 different sizes, I also discovered another tucker

, another quilting guide, another narrow hemmer foot and another ruffler attachment. As well, there is a cutting guide and a gathering foot.

Since this box of attachments cost about $5.00 plus shipping, it too was a great deal!! The ruffler and the tucker each normally cost about $50.00. I have no idea how much the hemmer set would normally cost.

This just goes to show how, if you know what you are looking at, some excellent deals can be found on eBay!

I am waiting for a White buttonhole attachment to arrive. I found it advertised on kijiji.com for $5.00 plus shipping. I don’t know what these attachments cost these days because you really can’t buy them new anymore. After ordering a Singer one (and I don’t have a Singer machine), I learned that buttonhole attachments are not universal. This Singer one won’t fit my White, my Babylock, or my Elna machine. However, I have also discovered that all feet and attachments that fit my Elna 2004 also fit the White 782. They share bobbin types as well, although the Elna can also take a plastic bobbin. Haven’t tried one of them in the White machine yet.

It is nice to know that feet and attachments can be interchanged between them though. That means 1/2 the storage will suffice.
