“Oh, I bought that foot ages ago but I never used it” OR ” I have no clue how to use it or even what it is called” OR ” I just can’t seem to see how to make it work” OR “I did not even know such a handy tool existed…..can I buy one today?”

TODAY, WE FOCUS ON THE BORDER GUIDE FOOT:
This is what the foot looks like: The only machine that includes the foot as a standard accessory is the JANOME HORIZON 7700QCP. The BORDER GUIDE FOOT is an optional accessory for ALL other Janome models.
The Border Guide foot is a clip-on foot so will fit any of our high or low shank models which are either 7mm or 9mm models. This foot will not be compatible with 5mm models.
What is 5mm; 7mm; 9mm? That is the opening in the needle plate and the foot – so they must correspond accordingly for obvious reasons!
If you have a 9mm machine model (all models from the Janome MC12000 onwards so includes MC8900; MC8200; MC9900; MC15000), then you would ask for Part # 202084000.
If you have a 7mm machine model, you would ask for Part # 200434003. This would be the rest of the models except for 5mm machines and, of course, the Horizon 7700 includes this foot so you should already have it if you own the Janome Horizon 7700 (unless, of course, you were careless & lost it……or forgot you had it?!)
And this is not all…….I have also used the Border Guide foot as a regular stitching guide when I needed more space between my needle and stitching………..WHAT OTHER USES HAVE YOU FOUND FOR THIS FOOT?
OK…….so are you now as excited about this foot as I am??? If you do not yet have it, you will probably want to see your local JANOME dealer today to buy yours. Have fun creating stunning embellishments with it.
