Janome Zigzag foot ‘A’
The Zigzag Foot is the most common sewing foot is already on your machine, so when you take it out of the box. It has a vertical and horizontal slot to accommodate needle movement in either direction, and you’ll use it almost ALL the time
Janome Zipper foot ‘E’
You can find zippers in all areas of craft, clothing, accessories as well as home decor. While there are several variations of zipper feet available, your machine comes with the common Zipper ‘E’ Foot. It has a clip-bar on both the left and right, allowing you to move the foot on either side of the zipper teeth and get as close as possible to either side allowing for a smooth finish.
Janome Satin Stitch foot ‘F’
The ‘F’ Foot is designed with a clear short nose for a better finish on decorative projects. You can add a beautiful satin stitch along the hem or use any one of the many applique stitches to attach patches as well as accent clothes and bags.
Janome Blind Hem foot ‘G’
Perfect hems are hard, that’s why your Janome comes with the Blind Hem foot which is ideal for trousers and skirts for instance. The guide forms the hem while you’re sewing and the foot features grooves on the underside which allow your hem to sit correctly to give you neat, perfect hems every time.
Janome Overcast foot ‘C’
The Overcast foot is used to finish your edges neatly, it has forming fingers to keep your fabric from gathering and a brush to prevent frayed edges from pulling up with each stitch. All you need to do is cut your edges neatly and use this foot to achieve beautiful edges your projects without an overlocker!
Janome Automatic Buttonhole foot ‘R’
Now you can do a buttonhole in one easy step, unlike older machines that take up to 4x longer! The ‘R’ foot uses your button to size up the perfect buttonhole and frames it automatically. So, all you need to do is lower the button sew lever, and away you go! For tricky to sew fabrics, there’s also a stabiliser attachment available.
Additional spool pin
The additional spool pin goes into the small slot on the top of the machine and is commonly used for twin needlework. This gives you two parallel stitches on top and a zigzag underneath, giving your hems a professional look as well as great-looking decorative work.
Most modern machines nowadays use plastic bobbins because metal bobbins can damage your machine. This little spool forms the stitch underneath, and no, you can never have too many bobbins!
The average sewist uses a size 14/90 sharp needle for most sewing, but there are many types of needles out there. It’s also recommended that you change your needle every 6 – 8 sewing hours because they can become blunt.
Janome Spool Caps
Your machine comes with spool caps to use on the horizontal spool pin so your thread will wind off correctly. The spool cap holds the reel in place so that it doesn’t dance around on the spool pin and cause you tension issues. You will get a small and large spool cap, but we recommend using the small spool cap for as it doesn’t interfere with the thread delivery.
All other standard accessories are little things to help maintain your machine. There is a lint brush for cleaning out the bobbin case as well as a screw key. If you have any other enquires about these items, just let us know, and we can help you identify them and their potential uses.
We hope this helps you know what you’re looking for. You’re another step closer to finding your perfect machine!
