It took me a little bit of practice to get the hang of it (I did stipple quilting on a baby quilt) but it wasn't that hard. Try it, you will be surprised how easy it is to do stippling!"
- Caitlin, a Happy Customer
What would it be like to NEVER have to pay someone big bucks for machine quilting - and NO more UFOs (Un-Finished Objects) piling up in your sewing room, Ever Again?
What if free-motion machine quilting or "Stippling" on a domestic sewing machine was easier than you think?
Often the hard part is to come up with exactly the right tool, for the right job, at the right price.
Formally trained as a Fashion / Textile Designer - now a Quilter & Patchwork Teacher - I have spent the last 10 years teaching others and sharing the joy of Patchwork Quilt making.
The Substantial Saving of Time and Money that I have witnessed my students achieve - time and time again - by learning Free-Motion Machine Quilting is simply amazing...!
There is no doubt that in order to create beautiful machine quilting stitches, you need to practice.....
But the first step in becoming an accomplished machine quilter is having the right tools.
Most people love the look and feel of the dense, classic meandering lines stitched over patchwork quilts - this type of machine quilting is known as "Stippling" - but everyone seems to put it in the "too hard" basket, until they tried it for themselves with the Darning Foot.
This Generic Darning Foot is the perfect partner for your Top Loading Low Shank Janome Computerised Sewing Machine, such as a Janome 19110 (which we also sell. See our other listings).
This foot also fits your Basic Front Loading Janome models, such as Janome RE1306 (available from K-Mart).
Designed to fit all Top Loading & Basic Front Loading Janome Models with Low Shank, it has been made to equivalent specification by a reputable manufacturer and it has the same quality workmanship.
So, you ask....
What's the difference between LOW shank and HIGH shank?
How do I know if my sewing machine has "Low Shank" or "High Shank"?
See them side by side (in picture below):
The one on the Left is a HIGH Shank, and
The one on the Right is LOW Shank
Generally speaking, if your sewing machine is an "embroidery" model (for example, some Janome Memory Craft, such as MC9500), then it is likely to have High Shank.
Most of the "straight sewing" or "all-purpose" models have Low Shank (for example, Janome 19110 or the K-Mart model, Janome RE 1306).
If you are not certain, you can measure using the simple instructions below:
When presser foot is down, measure the distance from the bottom of foot to screw-hole that holds the foot onto the presser bar.
- A high shank machine measures approximately 3 cm or 1 1/4" from the screw to the bottom of the foot.
- A low shank machine measures approximately 2 cm or 3/4" from the screw (small dot in picture above) to the bottom of the foot.
What's so special about this foot?
Also known as a "Stippling Foot" or "Free-Motion Embroidery Foot", this darning foot has ALL metal construction on its shank for durability, and an extra large clear plastic presser foot area with a built-in guide that give you greater control and flexibility... machine quilting and embroidery has NEVER been so easy!
A darning foot is design specifically to NOT use the feed dog... the full manual control is what you want when you do Free Motion Machine Quilting.
Often called a "sandwich", the quilt you're making consist of THREE layers: Quilt Top, Batting and Backing. And sewing through all those layers can be tricky......
When you try to do stippling type of quilting WITHOUT a Darning Foot, you will find:
- The layers will shift away from each other as you sew along.
- You get puckers form on the backside of your quilt
- Worse of all, it's very likely that you will "run out of Backing" as a result of the puckering!
Which means the other layers (Quilt Top & Batting) are simply sliding along as they pass under the presser foot.
This causes the layers to shift..... and that's where your problem begins.
So, What's a Quilter to Do?
And Experience The Difference For Yourself...!
A darning foot will allow you to do free motion quilting. Like the walking foot, the darning foot has a spring that helps bounces up and down on the quilt as the needle goes up and down.
The difference is that with a darning foot, you MUST lower the feed dogs on your machine and guide the quilt manually - that's where the term "Free Motion" comes from... it gives you maximum freedom to quilt or embroider any kind of curve line as you wish.
With free-motion quilting, you do not need to adjust the length of the straight-stitch on your machine at all. The speed at which you are sewing combined with the speed at which you move the quilt around under the needle determines the stitch length. The more you practice, the more comfortable you will become...
- Hannah, a Mum of three
Since there is no contact between your quilt and the machine between stitches, you can move the quilt in any direction. Once you are comfortable, it is simple to make curvy and meandering quilting lines using a darning foot, guide your quilt in circles or waves or any variation creating feathers, leaves, or just playing around with free-hand abstract designs.
What's more, the clear-view foot offers excellent visibility while free-motion quilting..... you can use the grid for orientation and always know where you're going!
The built-in spring load will keep fabric flat and under control-perfect for techniques that require extra precision such as stippling, meandering and echo quilting.
You will end up with pucker-free, neat curvy lines, as fancy or as simple as you wish.... Perfectly versatile to suit your theme and fabric choice!
Not a Quilter?
You will still find plenty of use for your Darning Foot:
It??s great fun to do free-hand embroidery with a sewing machine. The stitching is controlled by the movement of your hands while manually guiding the fabric to follow your inspirations for unique designs.
Commonly used for 'free hand' embroidery, this foot is designed to ensure proper stitch formation, minimize skipped stitches and puckering and also to protect your fingers while you move your fabric freely under the needle. Perfect for those just learning how to do free-hand embroidery!
- Lisa H, a Happy Quilter
