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!!"
- Niamh from Mortdale, New South Wales 2223
NOTE: This particular 1/4" foot is a "Snap-On" or "Clip-On".
What does this mean?
It means you can easily put this foot on by simply "snapping" or "clipping" in in place. No need to fiddle with screw drivers!
How Does This Foot Help?
A quarter inch foot is design specifically for machine piecing your quilt block together... what you want is a consistent, accurate seam allowance that is exactly 1/4 inch (or 6.3mm).
Because sewing together fiddly little pieces AND keeping a precise seam can be tricky!
Will this Foot Fit My Machine?
The easiest way to tell is by looking at the maximum stitch width - this refers to the maximum width your machine can achieve in zigzag mode.
This foot will fit Most 7mm machines, but NOT 5mm or 9mm.
7mm is the most common width for modern machines - especially if you have a computerised Janome.
If you have a basic sewing machine - say, Elina 40 or Janome JR1012 - they will be 5mm. And 9mm machines are high-end models like Janome Horizon or Skyline S5 / S7 / S9 (but Skyline S3 is 7mm).
What does this mean to YOU?
This refers to your machine's default needle position. 7mm machine's default needle position is NOT the same as 5mm.
And while most sewing machines lets you adjust needle positions (so that your needle goes into the hole rather than hitting the foot), some very basic sewing machines do not have such function - Janome RE1306, for example.
That means you NEED to Check the Needle Position BEFORE Sewing, to make sure the needle doe not hit the foot.
Unless you check first, there is a risk that your needle may break when it hits the metal part of the foot (and the sharp, broken needle tip can potentially fly into your eye, causing injuries)!!
This is the foot you wanna get RIGHT!
How important is an accurate seam allowance?
Very important... a seam allowance that is not accurate or consistent will affect the overall construction of your quilt top.
First, your seams will not match when piecing together rows and columns. You may force your seams to match by stretching your fabric, which will cause it to be taut or distorted. You may also relax your fabric, which will cause it to pucker.
Second, your block will not be the correct size. When your pattern says what the finished block size will be, it assumes that you have used an accurate seam allowance. If your seam allowance is off, you may end up with a larger or smaller block. Depending on the block, you may be able to resize the blocks without any significant problems. But sometimes the block will not resize easily, and part of your block may be cut off, including a fabric seam allowance. When this happens, tips and points may be blunted and lines simply won't match up.
Third, your top will not be as strong. If your seam allowance is too narrow, your pieces may come apart at the seams - literally. Even if your pieces stay together, threads from the edges of the pieces may work their way through the top. Worst of all, your whole quilt may start to come apart in the first wash!
So, What's a Quilter to Do?
And Experience The Difference For Yourself...!
What this 1/4" foot does is provide your raw edges with a guide (or a "fence") as you stitch. As long as you line up all layers of fabric (and your cutting is pretty accurate to begin with) against the guide, you can be absolutely certain that your seams will be a precise 1/4 inch - no more, no less.... NO matter how fast you sew!
I can't imagine machine piecing quilt blocks together without my new quarter inch foot! NO WAY!!! :-)
Oh, I like the little "fence" on it, too.... you simply can't go wrong."
- Melissa, a Young Quilter
You will end up with even, neat, professional quality machine piecing.... Give them a press and you will see that your blocks are ALWAYS the size they should be!
Does it help with things other than Quilting?
Yes, Definitely! You will find plenty of use for your 1/4 inch foot:
- I often use mine in dressmaking - because a 1/4" (or 6.3mm) seam allowance is perfect for curved edges like armholes and collars.
- Your quarter inch foot is also perfect for sewing silky or slippery fabrics... you gain precise control with NO stress!
- No overlocker and need French Seams instead? Easy. You 1/4" foot will take care of the accuracy.
- This foot is also great for making fabric bags and hats, where you would generally use an iron-on interfacing, and therefore need a smaller seam.
- They are also handy for cloth doll, "softies" or teddy bear making..... Try making a Sock Monster this weekend!
It's great any time you want a very tight, exact, tiny s/a (seam allowance).
Recently I used it to bind a corset - the instructions called for a quarter-inch seam allowance on the binding, and this foot made it really easy."
