We already did a post about this Free Motion Couching foot when it was new. Here is the link directly to the post.  This foot has just had its first birthday!

  • THE PINTUCK FOOT:  There are 2 sizes for this foot as well as they are available for 7mm OR 9mm JANOME machine models. The foot is actually designed to be used with a twin needle to create pintucks. However, it can also be very successfully used to couch down very thin or narrow yarns & cords, even ribbons, which may “wobble” around a little in the Beading foot set highlighted in the previous post this week (Monday 21st April).  You would match the size of pintuck foot with the yarn so that it fits snugly in the pintuck foot groove but is still able to move freely through the foot as you sew.   See this link to a video. Obviously if you are using the pintuck foot for COUCHING rather than actually making a pintuck, then you would omit the twin needle and simply pop the cord into one of the grooves and then stitch on top of the fabric & cord/yarn.

    I am looking for a foot for my Janome as close to or like the #21 cording foot for a bernina machine. The intent is actually to sew threads or yarns together to create a cord using a zig zag stitch that can be rolled into a ball like yarn. Can you recommend a foot that serves this purpose for my janome?


    • lizafrica says:

      I am unfamiliar with this Bernina foot.I think you MIGHT mean our Janome Cording foot H? Not sure. Or you could use a Beading/Couching foot or one of our Pintuck feet feeding the threads or yarns under the groove twisting as you go & do a zig-zag over them.
      In all honesty, I have done this before but on my SERGER using a rolled hem setting. MUCH quicker and gives a lovely result – it fully encases the threads although the serger threads do become part of the mix.
      You may watch Janome Accessory video’s on this link for more information about the feet I mention here.
