Janome listens carefully to their customers. YES, we do! The customers requested a 1/4 inch foot without the guide/flange. A new foot is provided with the Janome Horizon MC15000 Quilt Maker upgrade kit and is a standard accessory with brand new Quilt maker models(with the rose pink strip under the screen and Quilt Maker on the front of the machine!)
Sometimes the little black flange on the foot would cling to batting or into the thickness of fabrics. It was also difficult to stitch around circular objects with the flange. For that reason, the “O” foot is now being offered without the flange.
The original “O” foot with the guide flange remains very practical when sewing thinner fabrics. The guide allows you to easily sew a narrow seam of 1/4 inch (6mm). Place the fabric edge against the guide flange and stitch along the edge.
Visit your authorized Janome store for the newest upgrade to the Janome Horizon MC 15000 Quilt Maker.
This foot is currently ONLY available with the Janome Horizon MC15000 Quilt Maker and in the upgrade kit for Janome MC15000 version 1 & 2 owners. But we are sure it will become available in the coming months as a separate item for use on other Janome sewing machine models. Keep watching this janomelife blog as we will tell you when it becomes available. In the meanwhile…….you can always purchase a new Janome Horizon MC15000 Quilt Maker!!
