Is this a Genuine Janome Foot?
Unlike some others in the market, this foot is made by the same people that makes Janome sewing machine parts. At the same factory where Janome gets their parts made and packaged - located only a few minutes down the road from Janome's own factory.
This company is a third-generation family business that specialises in presser feet and parts. They are one of the few certified makers for Janome, Brother, Singer, Pfaff and others. If Janome and other brands can trust them - you can trust the quality too.
I've personally visited the factory to verify for myself. I was genuinely impressed because of their a high quality assurance standard - specified by Janome Japan - the parent company of Janome Australia.
The only difference is in the packaging. I'm calling mine "generic" because we had ours packaged under our own brand.
This means I'm 100% happy and confident that you and your sewing machine are in safe hands - because I recommend this foot to all my students, and use it for my own sewing too!
So do our happy customers - here's just one of many reviews:
Just want to say a Huge belated 'Thank You'.... I waited to try your foot first... because I previously bought a 'cheap' (very cheap) foot a few weeks ago elsewhere... and it broke after a few uses.
Your foot feels solid and seems much better quality...and works a lot smoother...and you posted it out so fast I got my project finished quickly....so Thank You!!"

What does "Low Shank" and "High Shank" mean?
It means "shank height" or "shank size".
Most domestic machines have LOW shanks.
Just to give you an idea, we sell about 10 low shank presser feet to ONE high shank foot. That means if you don't know what sort of shank your machine has, it probably has a low shank.
Because High Shank machines are generally "fancy" embroidery models which are more costly, and those who invest in these models tend to know exactly what shank type it is.
This Gathering Foot is ideal for creating fullness in soft, light-weight fabric - whether you're making a full skirt, a frill around cushions or an evening dress!
This foot is designed for creating soft gathers in lightweight fabrics.
The underside of the foot is raised behind the needle and has a thick bar in front of the needle to gather and attach your gathered-up frill onto a flat piece of fabric simultaneously. If you have a heavier fabric, or want a a more dramatic gather, or more definite pleats / ruffle, you might want to use a ruffler foot instead (which we also stock. Please check out the rufflers in our store).
Unlike a ruffler, there is NO "cogs and wheels" and moving parts on your gathering foot....
That means you WILL find that differnt fabric give very different end results, so it is definitely worth your while to test on any particular fabric you plan to use so that you end up with a satisfying result!
Once you've tried it, you will NEVER go back to making gathering by hand ever again!
This foot goes onto your machine just like any other screw-on presser foot. it's designed to fit most domestic machines.
A Gathering Foot will give your work a soft, vintage-inspired finish.
With no hand-gathering required, you will be amazed at how much you can do by machine!
Sure, there are LOTS of different methods of gathering in fullness in the fabrc to make frills...
But if you were making lots of full skirts, vintage-inspired dresses, or evening gowns....
You might find this foot the BEST investment. EVER.
And say good-bye to other fiddly methods!
Of course, the more you practice, the more comfortable you will become...
See this detailed description from a happy customer:
"This is a great little foot to make gathers, and ruffles. In general, if you set the machine for the longest length and the highest tension, you get a really good gather.
It came without instructions (which is normal for machine feet), but having used this type of foot for years, you only needs to adjust a higher tension and a longer stitch length on your machine to make this wonderful little foot work properly.
To make a fairly nice ruffle, finish both edges of ruffle first with a rolled hem or a tiny edge hem.
Next place the strip needed for a ruffle under this foot. NOT in the slot of this foot. Then lower the presser foot and stitch away using a straight stitch.
To attach the ruffle or gathered strip to an edge of the project you are making, place the strip you want to ruffle or gather under this foot, lower the presser foot, insert the edge you want to attach the strip to in the slot of this foot.
Guide the top layer against the right side of the foot and also guide the strip to be gathered underneath it. SEW SLOWLY until you get the right feel for it to achieve the desired result you need.
It does take a little bit of practice, but a beginner can make beautiful gathers and ruffles with this foot.
This gathering foot IS different to a more expensive ruffler/pleater. It DOES NOT Make equal spaced pleats. Also adjust the tension and the stitch length for the amount of gathering you want (try it on scraps first).
NOTE: The lighter weight the fabric is the more it will gather tighter. Example lace will gather tighter than a medium weight cotton. Overall it does make very nice gathers, and definitely saves you time from having to do all your gatherings by hand!"
