Struggling with your 1/4 inch seam?
Sick of
Fudging your Wonky quilt Blocks?
Find out how other quilters Avoid Unpicking...



If you're looking at this Quarter Inch Foot, chances are...

  • You're learning to make patchwork quilts, and you need one for class.
  • You've made a few quilt tops already, but annoyed that your points don't line up
  • You're sick & tired of unpicking to rescue blocks that just don't fit together - because of seams!

Fact: You're Not Alone. Most People have trouble keeping an exact Quarter (1/4) Inch Seam Allwance.

That's where the headaches start. Just look at any patchwork blocks, and see how many seams there are. Now Imagine each seam allowance being slightly different...


Ask anybody who sews.....

There's NOTHING more frustrating than having to fiddle & fudge with your poorly put together patchwork blocks.

You can either start all over again, or start unpicking..... How Many seams?!



What would it be like to NEVER have to unpick or "fudge" your blocks that just didn't piece together quite right - because of uneven seam allowance - Ever Again?

What if Super Precise Machine Piecing 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. Of course, there is no doubt that in order to create beautiful quilts, you need to practice.....

But the first step in piecing accurately is having the right tools.

"After being skeptical, I was greatly surprised at how much faster and more accurate the sewing of my quilt blocks was with this foot.

I have pieced using a standard presser foot for years, but I like this much better...."

- Stella, a Happy Customer

for Keeping You Seam Allowance Consistent for Perfect Piecing Is a Quarter Inch (1/4") Foot

TIs 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:
"Hi...

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

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.



Will this Foot Fit My Machine?

Good question.


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 BOTH 7mm & 5mm machines with LOW shank, but NOT 9mm, nor High Shank.

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.

What does this mean to YOU?

In short: Needle Alignment.


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)!!



Please check with me if you're unsure.
This is the foot you wanna get RIGHT!




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).

And sewing together fiddly little pieces AND keeping a precise seam allowance can be tricky......



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?

Get Your Quarter Inch Foot Now
And Experience The Difference For Yourself...!


What this 1/4" foot does is provide your raw edges with a fixed width as you stitch. As long as you line up all layers of fabric (and your cutting is pretty accurate to begin with) against the front width on the right side of your foot , 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!




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!
"SO well worth getting it!

I can't imagine machine piecing quilt blocks together without my new quarter inch foot! NO WAY!!! :-)

- Melissa, a Young Quilter

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!
"Well, I'm not a quilter, but I use my 1/4" foot all the time!

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."

- Gemma, Costume Designer

The response for discovering the quarter inch foot has been phenomenal.


Here is what other people are saying about it:

"Can't live without this for quilting. No more guessing. Things always have a perfect 1/4 inch. Being new at this quilting think every little thing helps."

- A Happy Beginner

"I like this 1/4 inch foot so much that I've decided to use it for all my piecing..... 

I would recommend this foot for anyone who sews quilt blocks."

- K.S. a Happy Machine Quilter

"Great foot for a super price. Wouldn't do piecework with out it now that I've found it.

I am a quilter and am constantly needing to do those 1/4" seams. This foot takes out the guess work!"

- Grandmother of three

"The 1/4 foot is really a nice addition to the feet you get with my Janome.

It is a must if you quilt."

- Deb, a New Patchworker

How long will it take to receive my order?

All fully paid orders placed by 5pm Monday to Thursday will be processed overnight and ready to send by our warehouse - normally the next day or following business day.

In general, larger items tend to be delivered by couriers, while small items tend to go by Aust Post.



How is my postage calculated?

Great question.

Depending on weight and dimension, some times we are able to do Flat Rate across Australia, so the postage is the same no matter where you are.

Other times we use the Built-in Calculated system provided by Aust Post, and your postage is calculated based on YOUR location.



Can I get it delivered to my P.O. Box?

Depends on the item (and its dimensions), because Aust Post have size restrictions and couriers are NOT allowed to deliver to a P.O. Box.

Please check with us when in doubt.

If you have nominated a P.O. box, and the item is within Aust Post size, then it will go by Aust Post. Most of the time, this is the case.

When your item is too big, or being sent directly from our supplier, then we need you to provide a physical address so we can send a courier.

But please provide us with a street address (street number & name) - even if it is the only Post Office in town - as if it is an office address.

A phone number would help too - this will avoid delays.



What if I need my order urgently?

No worries, we will do our best. Just let us know.

Please give us as much notice as possible - especially for special occasions like birthdays!

In most cases, we CAN arrange an upgrade from Regular Post to Express Post for a little extra.

Please contact us first so we can update your invoice to show the correct amount.
