¼” Seam Foot without Guide – Accessory of the Month April 2024

 

This foot is the sister foot to the original ¼” Seam Foot with a Guide and is supplied with some Janome 9mm models.

Having no guide, align the right edge of the foot with the fabric edge to stitch a ¼ inch seam in from the fabric edge. The wide footprint allows for the fabric to be fed evenly and controlled while stitching a ¼” seam. Having no guide gives stitching versatility, patchworkers can quickly stitch fabric pieces into blocks, by drawing a centre diagonal line then stitch a ¼” seam on either side, cut along the drawn line to give 2 patchwork blocks. Alternatively, use this foot to topstitch along the fabric edge or parallel to a seamline to embellish your project/garment. The oval hole in the foot allows for the needle position to be adjusted, so a ¼” seam can become a scant ¼” seam.

A handy foot to have for your machine.

Custom Crafted ZigZag Foot (F2) – Accessory of the Month March 2024

 

Included with select Janome models, this foot is alternatively referred to as the Open-Toe Satin Stitch Foot. Designed with a bevelled underside and two outer footings with metal base strips, it boasts a small fabric footprint, making it ideal for sewing dense satin stitches or decorative stitch patterns.

This foot travels smoothly over the sewn stitches, without compressing or flattening, leaving a decorative raised finish.

The clear plastic and open-toe, makes for easy viewing while stitching; plus, a centre needle mark on the foot, indicates the centre needle drop position; the user can confidently follow a marked line on fabric, using the centre needle position marker.

This foot can also be used for quilting, monogramming, applique, and cut work.
