Christmas countdown……. Gift suggestion #6 Ruler quilting tools

holly image Today we offer gift suggestion #6.  holly image

That means we only have 4 days left until Christmas. Yikes!   Hope you are all ready, but if not, here is great gift suggestion for your favorite quilter. 

A fantastic addition to a quilter’s stash of accessories are RULER feet.  Ruler quilting is the all the rage with quilters.  A fun way to quilt and create new designs and patterns so much more easily. 

QR foot

The QR foot (pictured above) is quick and easy to attach.  The thicker base of the foot is what you need for quilting with rulers.  The open V divet shape at the front of the foot facilitates a better view of the project you are sewing. This QR foot is compatible with the following Janome models: MC 15000 Quilt maker ( version 3); Horizon MC9400 which has been  upgraded for Ruler work ++ and also the new Horizon MC9450. This QR foot is not currently compatible with any other Janome models……see below for which foot to use on other Janome models.

Our Convertible Free Motion Quilting Foot Set (pictured above) meets the needs of most other Janome ruler quilters.  Everyone has their favorite foot to use for quilting.  This set has a Closed Foot for general use: an Open Foot for extra visibility and the Clearview Foot for uneven surfaces and evenly spaced echo  quilting. In addition to the 3 attachments shown in the pic above which are included with the purchase of this foot, there is one more attachment required for Ruler quilting: it is what you see attached to the Convertible free motion foot in pic above (yellow arrow points to it) – most people refer to this as the “Ruler Foot” but that is not the name on the Janome blister pack. It is called the Frame foot set for 1600P. Part # 767434005 but it fits this foot perfectly!  Ask your local Janome dealer to show you these feet.

Perhaps you would like to find our hugely popular Janome Ruler work Kit under the tree next week? Or if you already have it, maybe your bestie might like to find it under her tree? This kit makes it all so easy to do ruler quilting as you have 6 rulers to help you free motion unique motifs on your quilts as well as the essential block marker to help you line the rulers up accurately. In addition, our kit gives you a colour booklet of instructions AND a DVD of step by step instructions and advice as you make the practical project: a folder with pockets in which to store all your rulers. Check out our website for more info about this ruler work kit. And you can also check out Amy’s website (aka the “Ruler Quilting queen” who is also a Janome dealer).

Our Janome HD9 machine (HD stands for HEAVY DUTY) is our brand new straight stitch machine which sews at 1600 stitches per minute and is the perfect machine for sewing and quilting……INCLUDING ruler quilting. We offer a fabulous NEW optional kit of feet and attachments for the Janome HD9 as seen in pic above. The kit contains the Convertible Free Motion Quilting Feet for quilting on a frame and at the sewing table (both options); Ruler work attachment for this; Darning Foot with Darning Plate; Free Motion Glider ( which makes moving fabric around SO easy); Needle Pack; PLUS 2 rulers to get you going with Ruler work : 6″ Curved Ruler and 8″ x 2″ Straight Ruler.

Merry Christmas!

    I wish on your site — that you had a contact form where a person could write with a question. If there is one, I have not found it. I want to know if there are any Janome models (except the ones that are in the upper stratosphere in price) that offer a high shank strait stitch foot? I own a MC9900. TYVM
