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!!"

This Open Toe Applique Foot is ideal for precision embroidery, applique, cut work and monogramming.
Nothing stands in the way of your creative vision. The cutout on the underside of the foot accommodates satin stitching and blanket stitching.
Sometimes called an "Open Toe Embroidery Foot", the open front ensures greater visibility while sewing, it has a stitching area wide enough for maximum stitch width without compromising control.
The toes of the foot are shorter, compared to a regular zigzag foot, for greater maneuverability while sewing (you can turn the fabric more easily for smoother stitching lines, an important asset when embellishing fabric)!
The bottom of the foot has a rectangular shaped indentation, which allows even satin / blanket stitching to glide under the foot without dragging. The angle in the indentation makes it possible to turn curves easily.
This foot goes onto your machine just like any other screw-on presser foot, and it is designed to fit most domestic machines with low shank.
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.
When you try to do applique or embroidery WITHOUT an Open Toe Foot, you will find:
- The stitches are not quite aligned with your designs, because there's limited visibility.
- Your finished stitches get caught under the presser foot.
- Worse of all, it's very likely that you will need to unpick damaged stitches and start again! Ever tried unpicking satin stitch or blanket stitch? Not fun.....
Because your machine's regular presser foot is designed to keep the layers of fabric tightly held (that means no room for the raised satin or blanket stitches you've built over the edges of your design).
This causes the stitches to lose their sheen from the friction, and sometimes get caught and become damaged..... and that's where your problem begins.
So, What's a Quilter to Do?
And Experience The Difference For Yourself...!
An Open Toe Foot will allow you to do applique & embroidery freely.
Sure, there is NOTHING wrong with hand applique, either Buttonhole or Needle-Turn. In fact, I'm a huge fan of handworks and still have a few on the go..... but that's exactly the point: there are the special projects that you reserve for handworks; and then there are those other commitments when you NEED to have your quilts finished by a certain date (like Christmas)... Help!
With machine applique, you do not need to have perfectly even hand stitches for either Buttonhole or Needle-Turn techniques. And no more RSI!
Instead, you get to zoom 'em up on your machine. Of course, the more you practice, the more comfortable you will become...
- Jo, a happy customer
Since there is no need to worry about the time you DON'T have, how about tackling all those super-cute, modern applique quilt projects, such as this one here....
Whip one up next weekend - Easy!
The built-in "groove" or indentation underneath protects your finished satin stitches or blanket stitches, as you move along quickly without having to worry about any damages to your perfect stitches.
You will end up with snag-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 Open Toe Foot:
It’s great fun to do embroidery with your sewing machine without going completely free-hand, since the stitching is still controlled by the machine (because the feed dog remains in its place). Perfect for those just learning how to do machine embroidery!
- Beth, a Happy Mum
In fact, an Open Toe foot is used any time you want to have greater control and visibility, such as
- Darning or mending - save money and get more wears out of your favorite jeans!
- Embroidery - got some unique designs you'd like to put on fabric? Pencil it and stitch over so you can wear your very own designs.
- Monogramming - simply by selecting a zig-zag stitch and fill in the letters with manual control.
