12 Days of Christmas | Day 12 Feet Sewing

Starting from left column, top to bottom: Buttonhole Foot
Single Sided Zipper Foot, Pintucking Foot, Standard Zipper Foot, Cording Foot
Blind Hem Foot, Zigzag Foot, Overcasting Foot
Overedge Foot, Piping Foot, Satin Stitch Foot, Hemmer Foot

Every day for the next 12 days, a Janome product will be featured on our Facebook page and on our blog. Counting down from day 12, today’s featured product is sewing feet – and there are twelve of them!

  1. Buttonhole Foot: This foot creates a buttonhole to the size of your button automatically by placing a button in the back of the foot. Simply then attach the foot to the machine and select a buttonhole stitch. The machine then measures the size and will create the hole to suit.
  1. Single Sided Zipper Foot: This foot is used for entry level 5mm models and aids with inserting zippers into garments. Pin or baste zipper tape to fabric and place it under the foot. Smooth the threads toward the back and lower the foot. To sew the left side of the zipper, guide the zipper teeth along the edge of the foot and stitch through the garment and zipper tape. Turn the fabric and sew the other side of the zipper in the same way as you did the left side.
  1. Pintucking Foot: Delicate twin-needle pintucks are a breeze with the grooves on the underside of the foot. Pintucks are not only decorative, strategically placed they can also be used to add a touch of modesty to light weight fabrics.
  1. Standard Zipper Foot: This foot can be set to sew on each side of the zipper. The edge of the foot guides the zipper to ensure straight placement. Once one side of the zipper is complete clip the second side of the foot into position and sew the second side. The foot can also be used as piping foot for thicker piping including the heavy jumbo cord or trims that are bulky and create an uneven surface to sew on.
  1. Cording Foot: The 3-way cording foot will hold one, two or three fine cords or threads. Because they are attached to the foot, the required design can be easily followed and the cords are perfectly placed. A variety of utility or decorative stitches can be sewn over the cords to couch them onto base fabrics. The choice of cord, thread and stitch are all contributory factors to the final effect.
  1. Blind Hem Foot: Blind hemming can sometimes be a little bit tricky so the blind hem foot goes some way to helping improve this technique. The foot has a metal guide in the centre and three grooves on the underside. During blind hemming, the fold of the fabric fits snugly against the guide in the foot for accuracy while the grooves underneath help to prevent unnecessary slipping. The needle swings over the metal guide creating slack in the upper tension so that the pick of the stitch is almost invisible. The diagonal grooves on the underside of the blind hem foot improve contact of the fabric with the centre guide plate for more accurate blind hems.
  1. Zigzag Foot: Special grooves on the underside of feet promote optimal fabric feed for best results. Outlets are provided on the underside of the zigzag foot to help grab the thread as it exits and improve stitch quality. Who hasn’t been frustrated by stitching bunching up before a thick seam? Although sewists normally appreciate the free tilt of a sewing foot, sometimes this feature can work against you when the foot comes up against a thick seam. To help you have perfect stitching over even the thickest seams, Janome provides a button on the zigzag foot that locks it horizontally parallel to the thread plate for smooth sewing over seams or other areas of significantly varying thicknesses. This feature can also be used at the beginning of sewing thick fabrics for a perfect start.
  1. Overcasting Foot: Use with the overlock stitch to give a professional finish to the edges of your seams. Particularly good for finishing off medium to heavyweight, easily frayed woven fabrics such as tweed, gabardine, and linen.
  1. Overedge Foot: Use with an overcasting stitch to allow thread to wrap around the edge of the fabric to prevent unravelling. The foot guides the fabric and keeps your edges flat by compensating for the lack of friction when the needle makes the right-most stitch.
  1. Piping Foot: If ready-made piping cord is not available or if you just want to make your own, the piping foot is ideal for the job. The piping foot (sometimes mistakenly referred to as the cording foot) is designed with two grooves on the underside and will hold and cover the cord when making piping tape. It can also be used for attaching piping. Maximum cord size is 5 mm.
  1. Satin Stitch Foot: For sewing dense zigzag stitching. The bottom of the foot is bevelled for smooth delivery of thread when sewing decorative or satin stitches. Foot is made of clear plastic making it easier to view stitching.
  1. Hemmer Foot: The hemmer foot, sometimes referred to as the rolled hemmer, is used to stitch the narrow rolled hems usually found on shirt tails, table linens and along the edge of frills. The hemmer is designed with a scroll shaped feeder on top and a straight groove on the underside which determines the width of the finished hem.

Ribbon & Sequin Foot – Accessory Of The Month December 2017

As with beads and pearls it is now so much easier to attach ribbons and even sequins with the help of our special ribbon/sequin foot. This foot is designed with guides through which ribbon or strung sequins can be inserted and it will allow them to feed through evenly as you sew. Besides affixing the ribbon, a wide ladder stitch can be used with narrow ribbon to make an easy and functional drawstring. This Accessory of the Month does have a bonus project for you to make using the Ribbon and Sequin Foot.

Aren’t Bobbins All The Same?

Skipped stitching? Tension issues? Thread knotting or looping?

So you think you’ve got the right machine, the right thread and the right tension in place, but you’re still not getting that perfect stitch. The answer might just be sitting right under your needle plate all this time. Bobbins.

This cute little yoyo-looking thing actually deserves more credit for a good stitch than you think.

Contrary to what some people believe, not all bobbins were created equal. At first glance they may look the same, but in actual fact different brand bobbins differ in diameter, height, depth and shape.

A bobbin that is too small in diameter will cause the thread to tangle in the bobbin case while sewing. A bobbin that is slightly too tall will certainly jam. Some sewing machines will tolerate a slightly different bobbin better than others, but using the incorrect bobbin will most likely affect the stitch quality of your project, and could result in damage to your machine.

The original bobbins that come with every new Janome machine are guaranteed genuine Janome bobbins. They are exactly the right size and shape for a snug fit in your Janome sewing machine, resulting in perfect stitches and a smoother sewing experience.

If you’re after the ultimate sewing experience, ask about our ‘J bobbins’ at your local accredited Janome store. These specially branded bobbins have the letter ‘J’ imprinted on the bobbin shafts.They are formulated with a combination of plastic and rubber to better hold thread, absorb vibration and reduce noise.

Special ‘J-bobbins’ with resin for the ultimate sewing experience.

In the grand scheme of things, bobbins are truly inexpensive. So why would you choose a quality machine but “cheap-out” on bobbins? If you happen to have “foreign” bobbins hanging out in your sewing room, the best thing to do is to get rid of them and get yourself some genuine quality Janome bobbins from your local dealer.
