Feet for Quasatron sewing machine / Stopki do maszyny Quasatron

People who visit my blog will know that I have a bit unusual sewing machine. It's Quasatron. It's a German product but not so popular in Poland, in the rest of the world neither as Uncle Google doesn't provide much info about it. I'm discovering it by try and error and the only manual I have for it, is in German and honestly my German is very weak. The biggest problem was that I had only the standard foot. Have you ever tried to sew in a zipper with such foot? No? It's one big disaster, especially for such a beginner as myself.
Anytime I was asking in the shops for feet to Quasatron, everyone was making big eyes and telling me that there is no chance that I will find in Poland so short foot. Slowly I started to give up hope and even carrying with me the foot I had to compare the height didn't help much.Recently I needed to sew for myself some long and loose home clothes, and I needed it to be made quite nicely, I started again to search for foots for my sewing machine. After visiting three shops finally I found this one and only, that didn't leave me in need.
Now it's very surprising for me that despite seeing the foot I had no one recognized that it's enough to buy the short system matic adapter and the problem will be solved!Now I can buy any kind of foot I need without a thousands of explanations what, why and where. Below you can see my new treasures. I just need to buy a standard foot in system matic to avoid problematic unscrewing the foot.

Osoby odwiedzające mojego bloga wiedzą, że mam dość nietypową maszynę do szycia. Jest to Quasatron. Jest to maszyna produkcji niemieckiej, ale niezbyt popularna w Polsce. W reszcie świata pewnie też nie, bo wujek google też nie chciał zbyt wiele o niej powiedzieć. Krok po kroku odkrywam jej możliwości, czasami przypadkowo, a czasami próbuję odcyfrowywać instrukcję, którą posiadam, ale niestety w języku niemiecki, a ten niestety u mnie kuleje i to bardzo.
Największym problemem było to, że miałam tylko stopkę podstawową. Próbowaliście kiedyś wszyć nią zamek? Porażka.Zaczęłam szukać stopek do Quasatrona, każdy sprzedawca kręcił głową i radził, żebym sobie odpuściła, bo nigdzie nie znajdę tak niskiej stopki.
Powoli zaczęłam tracić nadzieję, gdy trafiłam do pewnego sklepu, gdzie Bardzo Pomocny Pan zaproponował mi niski system matic. Uratowana! Pasuje jak ulał, a do tego koniec tłumaczenia się, co, po co i dlaczego takie niskie. Teraz wystarczy dokupić stopki w systemie matic, a ten jest łatwo dostępny. Teraz mogę kupować stopki nawet przez Internet bez obawy, że nie będą pasowały.And here are my lovely feet / A tutaj moje kochane stopki:

Lucynko, p.Ewo, dziękuję za miłe słowa,
Zula, polecam, bardzo dobrze się sprawuje, zarówno przy wieszaniu prania, jak i samym przechowywaniu klamerek

  1. I intend to buy a Quasatron as well, but I'm still afraid of its "exclusivity". Which of the foots on the picture is the adapter?

  2. It's the one in the left up corner. System MATIC has two versions of adapter: long and short. Mine is the short one. After installing the adapter You can use any of system MATIC feet by simply attaching it to the adaptor. In Poland most of available models of sewing machines go with the longer adapter so not many shops heard about the short version that I needed. But After I found it I don't have to worry about various feet.

    2. Oh. Well, I found a Quasatron and my husband got it working. He is German and I speak a little German. When you say the instructions are not with you now, does that mean that you threw them away?

  6. Fajnie, bardzo mi ta informacja się przyda. Też mam z "wystawek" taką maszynkę i jestem zadowolona. Od czasu do czasu szukam czegoś do niej, ale rzeczywiście, to w Polsce problematyczne. Dziękuję za post!
