Get a better view when doing decorative stitching on layers.

687-new-accessory-acufeed-flex-open-toe-footThe AcuFeed Flex™ Layered Fabric Feeding System has become a favorite among quilters for its ability to move bulky layers of fabric in perfect sync. The system, which features feet in two widths, was first introduced on the Horizon Memory Craft 12000. But now you can get AcuFeed Flex™ feet for your Memory Craft 8900 QCP and Memory Craft 8200 QC quilting machines.

The AcuFeed Flex™ Open Toe Foot is a wide width 9 mm foot that features an open configuration to give you a better view of your stitching. It’s especially useful when you’re doing a decorative stitch and want to make sure it’s lining up exactly right.

This wide-stance foot uses both of the upper feed dogs in conjunction with the lower feed dogs. So you get extra feeding traction with all of your machine’s wider decorative stitches.

When you’re not using it, the upper feed mechanism quickly detaches from the machine, and the foot is easily detached from the holder. For easier installation and removal, the rotation stopper has been eliminated, making it easier to access the screw.

To see the AcuFeed Flex™ Open Toe Foot in action, watch the video AcuFeed Flex™ System Intro.

  • CONVERTIBLE EVENFEED FOOT SET FOR 9mm machines – this is currently only for the MC9900.  The MC12000, Mc8900 & Mc8200 have the Acufeed system so would not use this foot.  Part # 202133005

      Hi Tish,

      It is high shank/9mm. Please search for “ruler foot” in the search box on the home page of janomelife. We have done numerous posts on this subject. You need the HIGH shank Convertible free motion foot for 9mm models + ruler foot. All the part #’s are listed i our blog posts and your local Janome dealer should have these too.

      Hi Heidi,

      The Horizon MC8200 is a high shank machine. Please use the part #’s for high shank in the janomelife blog posts on this topic. Please ask your local Janome dealer or quilting store for more information on the rulers. I believe we also gave information on the types of ruler feet required in our blog posts. Rulers need to be 3/8 – 1/4 inch thick. A rotary cutting ruler won’t work as that is only 1/8 inch thick.

  3. Just purchased my 8900 and am wondering what is the smallest circle you can create with the Circular Attachment? I mainly sew doll clothes at this time and would like to do some small decorative stitching.

    Hello Liza, just a small question : Does the Janome MC 8200 is considered to be a “low shank” type of pressure foot machine? I’m looking for new pressure feet, and I’ve found some but I’m not sure they will fit my machine. Thank you if you can help.

      Hi Beatrice,

      We do not address pricing on this forum. It is largely an educational tool. You will need to ask your local Janome dealer for a price on the walking foot for 9mm machine models. Our Janome feet are all very reasonably priced.

    I have a Janome 9900. Is there a 1/4″ foot that you can use with the straight stitch needle
    plate and simply sew a straight stitch, without using the 9mm stitch plate and one of the
    quilting stitches. In other words, I would like a simple 1/4″ foot with no bumpers, and not
    have to use a special stitch that moves the needle left or right.

      Hi Karla,

      I am double checking my facts about the straight stitch plate(s) that are available for Mc9900 and other models. I was away for the holidays & will need to wait for a reply from Japan, but I will get back to you once I have an answer for you.

      Not sure what you mean by bumpers. I assume you mean the 1/4 inch guide? If so, you can purchase the Clearview foot & Guide set for 9mm machines and simply not use the 1/4 guide provided in this set.

        I have the clear foot with the optional stitch guide, but it sews a 3/8″ seam when
        I use the regular straight stitch with the single needle hole plate. Thank you for
        looking into this.

    I am completely baffled by which stitch plate to use on my janome 9900 one thing tells you to this and when I try half the designs are greyed out can any one help

      Hi Fenella,

      You should probably see your local Janome dealer for some lessons on your machine if you have not already done this. This is the sort of question that your owner’s lessons would typically cover.
      The one needle plate has a 9mm opening. When this plate is on the machine you are able to do any / all of the stitches on the machine. When the straight stitch plate is attached to the machine it cannot allow you to do a zig-zag or any other 9mm stitch as you would break your needle on the plate as it does not have a wide enough opening. You are only meant to do straight stitches and embroidery with this plate – Hence it greys out everything else. That is a safety issue and very clever. Not all machines have this feature ……some just let you make a mistake & break your needle and/or needle plate.
      Hope that solves your confusion.

    My Janome 9900 is very new and I am still learning about it, now when I want to straight sew after doing the hoop embroidery, it is telling me to raise the feed dog, and will not sew a stitch. I do not know how to do this, I see no lever or button to do this. what shall I do?

      Hi Peggy,
      You will find diagrams & lists of all the machine parts in your Instruction manual. The feed dog lever is on the right hand side of the machine near the on/off switch. The feed dogs usually raise & lower automatically when you switch from embroidery mode to sewing mode. If this has not happened, then I doubt you have selected sewing mode on the screen. When you do this, it will prompt you to close the embroidery arm and the feed dogs will come up automatically.
      You do NOT need to remove the embroidery unit to do ordinary sewing. But you DO need to select sewing mode.
      While in sewing mode, you will need to manually lower the feed dogs if you decide to do free motion quilting or darning etc.
      We would like to suggest that you contact your dealer where you purchased the machine. There is always a learning curve with new equipment and your dealer is the first place to go for assistance with this learning process.
      ENJOY your machine. I totally love this model and have been having a lot of happy sewing & embroidering with it.
