The 3-way cording foot will hold one, two or three fine cords or threads. Because they are attached to the foot, the required design can be easily followed and the cords are perfectly placed. A variety of utility or decorative stitches can be sewn over the cords to couch them onto base fabrics. The choice of cord, thread and stitch are all contributory factors to the final effect.
Maximum cord size is 1~2 mm.
How to use the Janome Cording Foot
Insert 3 strands of cord under the spring of the foot and draw them under the foot to the rear. For added stability, knot the three cords together.
Hold the three strands parallel in front of the foot for even sewing and be sure to sew over each strand.
Stitch slowly and smoothly, guiding the fabric as you sew.
