I don’t think it would be worth the expense to ship it from America.  I’m enjoying it because I’m fairly new to all things sewing related and to sewing machines with so many features.

I emailed Janome uk and asked that question, answer was no! I have found it on Amazon but it would come from America. Not sure if it's worth it.........any thoughts on this?

Re: 9mm Janome Guide Foot

Anne Parker
 

Thanks for the clarification Jim - the blog does mention moving the needle to get various widths of seams and using the foot for Heirloom sewing which is one of my 'things' and I can see it being useful for sewing evenly spaced pin tucks, and several rows of hemstitching that you want to be acurately spaced.

At the bottom of the post the blog gives the details for both the 7mm and 9mm feet. The 9mm one is the new one out.

Sorry if I confused anyone by saying I wanted to use the 7mm on the 9mm 15000.  My reason for this was that  the 7mm one will fit the shanks on all my other machines which are all low shank.  The 9mm one would slide around a bit as the pin, left to right, where the foot attaches is wider than on a 7mm foot and I would probably encounter issues with the foot not being lined up with the feed dogs - hence my question about a low shank foot holder for 9mm feet.  It seems there isn't one.

Scratch that - this came in right after a post about the OV foot and my reply applies to only the OV foot. The Sliding Guide foot works just fine for decorative stitching. Our 7mm video shows it being used for decorative stitches. I think they are saying it is suitable for continuous rows of straight stitching, but not just for that function alone.

Ok, thanks Cheryl,
So it’s just an error in the book.  I wasn’t sure if it was locking at the beginning or not.  Some of the stitches seem to just start without locking but I guess they all lock unless they require reverse, like straight stitch and a few other utility stitches?

Cas, I think that when you start your row, you’ll see that it automatically locks the stitch and to finish you touch the reverse button and it locks again.

Getting the scant 1/4" seam... This is how I get it on my 15K

Home key-- tshirt key-- patchwork key

O foot and set the stitch width over to 8.9    Works perfectly each time for me.

I would think that would be more accurate than using that new SG foot would work as well for the scant 1/4" seam; I would think that would be easier to use for larger width seams.

Oh...one more question  I have an original Viking D1, which I still use for paper piecing and small projects when I don't want to change over from embroidery on my Janome. I have a ruffle foot for that machine. Is there a chance I could use it on my Janome?


Don't know where you got the idea that OV is a 7mm foot. Foot OV, part #202089005, is a 9mm foot. The 7mm version is the Clear View Quilting Foot and Guide Set, part #200449001. You have a 9mm machine, so you should ALWAYS get 9mm feet. If the foot you need/want is not available in 9mm then you can use a 7mm foot ONLY if you have a 7mm high shank foot holder to attach it to.


It's doubtful that your Viking ruffler would work on your 12000. Viking feet are very different and it most likely would not line up with the needle hole. Some rufflers are adjustable and you might be able to hack it to work. However there is an equally good chance that doing so would cause damage to your machine that is not covered by warranty. I'm not sure it's worth the risk to save 0.8% of the price of your machine for a ruffler!

Irene Holland
 

The picture of the foot on the blog  https://janomelife.wordpress.com/2016/03/01/brand-new-just-arrived-sliding-guide-foot-for-9mm-machine-models/ appears to have a 9 mm opening and the blog author mentions decorative embellishments in addition to straight stitching. So, my question - why is it only suitable for continuous straight stitching?

Irene

Check out the hole where the needle goes through. It goes from the center to the right, for width adjustment. Trying to zig zag with it would break the foot.

Which machines are 9mm and which are 7mm?

7mm: The Memory Craft 11000 and all models that preceded it.

9mm: The 8200, 8900, 9900, 12000, 14000, 15000 and all SkyLine models.


Re: 9mm Janome Guide Foot

Anne Parker
 

Had a feeling the answer was going to be no to both questions - and I expect for other makes as well :0(

I find the cloth guide either gets in the way, or it isn't quite where I want it - I like a guide right next to the right side of the foot so there is no way that the fabric can veer off.

One of my very favourite guides is a really simple one - the old Singer seam guide - you can see it in use in the second photo here - https://sewingtales.wordpress.com/2014/07/06/needles-and-my-singer-12/

It fits the 15000 and I really recommend it.  I set it by putting a ruler under the presser foot, lower the needle to check that the ruler is in the right place, lower the presser foot to hold the ruler, and then just snug up the guide to the ruler and screw in place.  You can use any screw that comes with any of the other accessories or the one with the guide fits too - if you feel it's not quite tight enough to stop it moving just insert a washer over the top of the guide so the screw goes through both and is able to tighten up.  You can buy them on ebay for a few pounds. :0)

Of course with the new foot you have all the measurements there and can change them easily, but you still don't have that solid barrier on the right hand side which prevents the fabric from veering off.  I find even on feet with guides the guides can bend a little though the guide on this one looks more robust.

One thing I am wondering with this foot though is about the 2 bars going across to the guide - is there a limit to the thickness of fabric that will go under them.  If your pressing down on thicker fabric with the foot will the over hanging bit lift up a bit and get caught - just curious.  I guess I am just going to have to buy the foot to find out! :0)

Gosh all these attachments and feet - will need another life time to experiment!

Re: janome 15000 Ruffler Foot

Anne Parker
 

Well the rufflers themselves actually have moving parts so they will make a noise especially as when fitted they are attached to the needle bar which goes up and down.

I don't know what the directions say about the Janome ruffler but I believe any metal attachment with moving parts needs occasional oiling to make it work to it's best - just one drop at a time though and then work the attachment to get the oil to the necessary points.

formatting ATA card for the memorycraft 10000 ver.3.0

Betsy
 

I have some new sandisk ata cards and can't get the machine to format them.  Digitizer MBv V3 goes only to the G drive not the F drive so I can't write to the disk through the digitizer.  Any help will be appreciated.
Thanks
Betsy in CA

Activating the 4-way flashers, Jim pulls into the Off-Topic lane for this excursion into the past:
ATA cards are about as common as floppy disks these days, so I'm wondering if you actually have CompactFlash cards plugged into an ATA adapter. Your machine will not be able to do anything with them unless they are smaller than 2GB. Beyond that, the Janome driver software for saving to these cards is still stuck in the past and does not believe that a disk "drive" with a capacity of more than 512MB is actually a CompactFlash card. That's why it ignores your G drive. There isn't much you can do to overcome this, other than get smaller capacity cards.

Hi Bernie Yes it has a choppy sound but works really well. Hard to set up if you don't follow directions on pkg. I kept ithe cardboard instr.and always refresh my memory when setting it up. I sew litte girl dresses and it is great for ruffles.


Re: 9mm Janome Guide Foot

Pru Joy
 

Hi, I also saw that but it is still only suitable for continuous straight stitching, like the auto cloth guide, so I hardly use it.  Yes that auto cloth guide does seem to take up too much space, not the seam allowance that you set.

Re: OV vs. OD

Deb Keldrauk
 

I use the OV foot for piecing all the time, sometimes with the guide sometimes without. I love it, the price was a little bit high but I actually got a deal from an online dealer in the UK. I like the clear foot I can see where I am going.

Re: 15000 Workbook Applique Sampler

Yes, reverse stitch locks the stitches, but I didn’t want to do that at the beginning of the seam as it cuts the thread, so I thought it was odd the book said to use it on both ends of the seam. 
 
It is fun learning new tricks.  That border guide foot would be helpful.  I’m thrilled when I already have the part the book is trying to sell me, I don’t have that one yet, lol.

I'm working my way through the book too and learning some tricks along the way. I didn't make the sampler exactly as described fusing all those little strips together, instead I used a striped cotton fabric and sewed each qpplique stitch along a stripe.

Regarding Reverse you just want to touch it and it will lock the stitch in place and cut the thread, Give it a try again and you'll see what I mean.  I liked the binding trick too.
I really liked using the Border Guide Foot from page 34 & 35. All Brands sells just about every Janome foot there is at very reasonable prices.
 
Happy Sewing!

As the name implies, you can see through the OV foot because it's clear plastic. And you can use it as a clear straight stitch foot without either guide attached. What I really like about it are all the extra 1/8 and 1/4" marks it has compared with the OD foot. Those let you measure exact distances from other stitch lines for where to stop or pivot.

I just saw a YouTube video on the "Clear View Quilting Foot & Guide" (OV 9mm). What is the difference between that and the foot I have (OD)? Thanks.


It's probably easier to say what they have in common: both have guides to make it easy to do a 1/4" seam and both have letter designations that begin with the letter O.


OV - This foot comes with interchangeable guides that allow it to be used as a 1/4" foot or a stitch-in-the-ditch foot. Using the technique explained in FootBook, it can also be used to make 1/8" seams. It's a snap-on foot for 9mm machines.


OD - This screw-on foot is included with the 12000 and 15000. It's made to work with the AcuFeed system and would be the best choice for difficult fabrics when precision is hard to achieve with standard feet.
