This is another brand new item! Ask your local Janome dealer to show it to you & let you feel the wonderful smooth, “silky/satin” feel of the needle plate. We use the term ULTRA GLIDE as it is so very descriptive – the fabric just literally glides over the needle plate and the ULTRA GLIDE foot similarly glides over the fabric. Obviously the foot is especially designed for use with tricky fabrics like vinyl, plastics, leather, pleather, faux leather, laminated cottons, etc. If you use a regular metal foot with these fabrics, you are quite likely to get into difficulties with the fabric “sticking” up against the foot, stitches becoming distorted…….and results you will not want. SO the answer is to use the CORRECT tool: the ULTRA GLIDE foot and NEEDLE PLATE. It will make your sewing effortless and give you the results exactly as you plan & require.
IN ADDITION: We have also found that the Ultra glide needle plate is wonderfully smooth and effective for quilting – it greatly assists in moving our quilting projects easily and smoothly on & through the machine……….give it a try, you will be amazed.
The needle plate is the new EASY SET threading system so makes your whole sewing experience even more pleasurable. Please ask your local Janome dealer to show you how to save time and thread with the EASY SET bobbin: quicker, easier and NO need to pull up the bobbin thread!!
The Ultra Glide foot and Needle plate set is compatible with Janome 9mm machine models which have the easy set bobbin system. Part # for this new JANOME ULTRA GLIDE NEEDLE PLATE & FOOT SET IS 202201005. Your local JANOME dealer will assist you with pricing as well as ordering of this item.
