Initially put down from 1250 to 1650 was a large number from only 8,000 monuments remain today. Because of these brasses it has been a possibility for the clues from the monuments to help out the historians as they trace the development of clothing, armor, and lifestyle. From these came about information that included a lion pictured at the feet of a knight means that he died in battle as well as a hound at someone’s feet meant that he liked to hunt with dogs.

This is a flat foot with grooves cut in underneath. This foot, used with a double needle will pinch and stitch lines of straight stitching in narrow raised patterns. The number of grooves will determine the spacing between the lines and the number of pattern lines. The three groove pintuck foot is used on heavier fabric or for wider designs and the for and five groove pintuck foot will be better on lightweight fabric or for narrower patterns. This has two narrow claw like prongs instead of a small hole in the middle and is used for straight stitching close to the edge of a hem or seam
Flat feet are usually the result of one’s own genetics inherited from their family. Flattening is a normal part of the walking cycle of the foot, and in fact this is how the body disperses much of the shock forces created with walking. However, in some individuals, the foot flattens outward too much. This changes the way certain muscles in the foot and leg have to function, which causes numerous changes to the feet over time. These changes can include chronic straining of ligaments and tendons, as well as the development of deformities that rely on structural imbalance like bunions and hammertoes.
The reporter bag is also an over the shoulder mens bag, but it is quite compact in size (typically 20cm wide by 25cm high). It is designed to be lightweight, ideal for travelling or staying on your feet all day. The north south profile means that it will not get in the way whilst walking, and does not become too bulky. Unlike the messenger, the reporter is not a flap-over bag and instead has a simple zip fastening on the top. The most comfortable and lightweight version of the reporter (or crossover) is the flat-bag. It is designed without any depth so that it lies flat against the body.
The narrow and wide braid feet both have a hook on the front of the foot slip and a narrow tunneled groove underneath. It is used when you want to add cording or braid. The cord is laced through the hook and under the foot slip into the tunneled groove. There is a braid-guide attachment you can attach near the presser foot shank to keep the braid or cord taut while stitching, no tangles. This is a very handy foot, the metal roller feeds the fabric and keeps it from stretching and bunching, great for thick, heavier fabric and fabric with a nap. Often called an even feed foot.
