Bobbin Discrepancy & Presser Foot / AccessoryIssue
The instruction manual did not come with info on which bobbin to use, so I had to bring the bobbin that came with the machine to the fabric store. The bobbin appeared to be a Class15J, based upon appearance (flat top, size of center hole, two small holes on the top and bottom surfaces, etc). The store clerk agreed. Then I saw on here that this machine is suppose to use the Class 15, however the class 15 bobbin does NOT match what came with the machine. The Class 15 has a smaller center hole, and has a notch coming from the center hole (versus two small holes on the top and bottom surface). Can someone explain this discrepancy? Also, when I went to Singer's website and searched for presser feet and accessories that are compatible with this machine, the search came back with no results....and the Singer Co did not provide a complete answer to the previous poster about specifically which presser feet are compatible. I'd like an answer, since the Singer website is not updated to provide the level of support for this machine versus others. I'm seriously about to return this machine and buy something else.

I looked on the Singer website & couldn't find any info either, but I ordered a whole pack of Singer Class 15 bobbins for this machine & they work fine. As for the feet, the snap on feet from my other machine fit this machine too. So any snap on feet should work.
The 44S does us a bobbin type 15. The bobbin 15J has a very minor curve to the end discs that will not run smoothly in most machines designed for the 15. The slit at the center hole & and the small holes on the surface will not have any effect to your sewing.
I did take a look at the site and saw that you are correct about the listing of accessories & such not being linked correctly to the 44S page. We will address that now and you will be able to see the different other feet that are available for this machine.
