Re: rulers

You can use any rulers that are made for ruler quilting and are the appropriate thickness for ruler work.

Hi all, 
I purchased some rulers at a quilt fair, and I'm wondering if they can be used with the 14000.  Or are the rulers  proprietary  to Janome?  I have the little foot for the ruler work, I would really like to do a "feather" look, and I don't see that on the Janome rulers.

Thanks

Thank you Diane,

I was hoping that you'd find the time and do a video of the binding from beginning to end.  I just finished 4 placemats to practice the binder and it took me a couple of weeks of thinking while doing other things, some sewing and some not to finish the ends.  If I can manage to do something "inside out and backwards" I do, so as much as I hate to admit this, it took me a WHOLE day to finish just 2 of those placemats.  I watched videos and even managed to still get things backwards or twisted.  I had to take a break to sort out my mind and try again.  SOOOO! you see why I'm asking for more help.  Another thing - the videos that are up on the internet are using the "traditional" binding method, which is double the width and sewn on in 2 steps.  This was confusing at first, until I took a look at my placemat and the "lights went on" and I realized that didn't matter as the angles were still the same.  Then I could concentrate on what was important and get it done.  However, I'll enjoy your video even more now that I don't have a particular struggle to get through for some results.

Re: non bound scallop edge

Patricia Ward
 

Sharon, I have done that when I was using the scallop border on top of another sashing and the scallop was to be stitched down almost like an applique on the last border.  IF I am doing scallops on the outside border then I do use a bias cut binding. Cut on the bias the binding goes on much smoother because you are going around curves and into junctions of the scallops.

Diane - You are the best! I have the binder set, I actually purchased it used from a lovely person on our list (who also never used it). For some reason I just keep putting off using it, you know “next time, next time”. Please let us know how to access the video when it’s available.

The 7mm foot holders are not offered as stock accessories, so you would have to order through a dealer. Part #830504017 is a high-shank 7mm holder that should work with the 9400. That said, you should note that this foot holder can be used ONLY with 7mm snap-on feet and if you set the needle position or stitch width outside the 7mm range you can cause damage. Use with care!

Re: Binding Foot or Binder Attachment

That would definitely be the way to go! I wasn’t aware of any foot holder, and I do have lots of feet for my 7mm machine that I could be using on my 9400. Since reading your email this morning, I did some research. But I couldn’t find this foot holder. Do you remember where you got it or what exactly it was called?

I just finished a quilt top and will video the binding from the beginning. It will include the finishing edge as well. The video in the app covers everything else. This is one of my favorite accessories.

Hi,

I just want to point out that there are 2 different tools to do binding with our Janome machines.  One is the binder foot; and the other the binder attachment, which includes a foot in the blister pack of several things like screws and 2 main pieces.  The attachment costs a lot of money while the foot is probably less than ½ that cost.  The little foot as I understand it is for making or using bias binding and also will apply it to the edge of fabric for a nice finished edge.  The binder attachment, which as our Janome Educator says looks like a medical device that doctors use for female medical examinations.

I don't have the little foot and our dealer says they are on "back order", so I'm waiting to get one.  I do have the binder attachment, (in fact more than one; as the bobbin cover plate was changed and Janome didn't provide just that particular part and I changed from a 7mm machine to a 9mm machine and the foot didn't fit anymore).  It isn't difficult to use, but it does take practice and I've discovered more practice than I did for a project, so I used the old method for "the quilt" I made.  It is a good thing that your dealer wants you to come in and try the attachment.  He/She realize that many folks purchase these expensive items, then are not happy with the learning curve required to get used to using it and perhaps return them for a refund AND the package is opened and would be difficult to resell.  

The next thing about the binder attachment is "finishing" the binding at the end of the quilt.  I struggle with this in the traditional binding method, so imagine how I'm doing with the new.  I've asked Jim and Diane, IF they have the time to make a video for the footbook and machine (My 15000/My 12000) app's as well.  These last 2 app's are very specific to those machines, but contain valuable information that can be used for other Janome models as well, if you can adapt to a bit of change, ie:  where things appear on the machine screen - no embroidery, etc.  

Another thing I do and that is watch as many different videos I can to learn as much as I can when trying new techniques or refreshing one I may not have used often or for a long while.  Sometimes a different person presenting just uses different wording or pictures that makes the "bells ring" for me.

Whatever, you do, don't let this device intimidate you.  It is a fun attachment to use, even if it is expensive.  Remember that trying it out on something like placemats is a good place to learn as you have 4 corners on probably 4 placemats to get the hang corners, as that is the biggest challenge.  Our Janome Educator, that taught us how to use it told us that she can bind a fairly large quilt in 45 minutes - I'd like to watch her to see if it's a "fish" story - you know how the fish caught gets bigger in every telling of the same story.

PS:  The foot looks bigger than the attachment, but it is not,  it very much matches the size of your other sewing feet.  The attachment is much larger than the pictures shows, if you are comparing them below.

Thank you Cheryl!  I make a lot of quilts, and binding is my least favorite part. So when I can, I’ll watch the videos and have my dealer demo before I decide. If practice means I could cut the time down, I may do it. A king takes me 4-6 hours all in.

If you have facebook.  There is a good one on Janome Sewing Machines facebook page.  You can also check out youtube and there are a couple on youtube. Just ask for Janome quilt binding foot.    Also, Jim and Diane of this group have a great demo in their FootBook (which is for sale in app store—very reasonable price for very helpful guide to all Janome feet). I found it helped to watch more than one of the demos—-as they each show it just a little bit differently.   There are some showing exactly how to attach, info on how to miter corners, etc.

I use it all the time. From what I’ve heard, if you are a perfectionist you might not be happy.  I am not a perfectionist and this saves time.  Directions call for two inch strips to be used.  I have never tried to make it larger than that—-and I know some people cut theirs at 1 5/8 inch.
It takes a bit of practice to get used to using—but the demo videos are great for helping.   
I am very glad that I have it. (I have the 15000)
