NEW! HD-9 Roller Foot is our April Foot of the Month

This NEW HD ROLLER FOOT is essential for work with thick materials such as leather, upholstery fabric, vinyl, plastic and for sewing home decorating projects with techniques like extra large piping and similar.  This foot is fabulous for sewing rounded edges and curves and allows much better visibility so that you can easily manipulate the fabric with unbeatable accuracy. 

This pic shows how the roller foot rides along like a wheel and you can’t see the needle from this angle but when you are sitting at the machine, the needle is completely exposed so you can position it EXACTLY where you need it and see EXACTLY what you need to see to do a perfect job. It is nothing short of brilliant!

The roller foot can be used when doing straight stitching at high speed or on high shank  machines with an adjustable needle position.

IMPORTANT: This foot cannot be used on machine models that have an integrated dual drive or with low shank machines.  (MC6600P and MC7700). 

This foot is available for purchase as a separate Janome blister pack item OR can be purchased as part of /included in the Leather Kit for HD9. 

Follow the Assembly instructions on the package which are explained and illustrated clearly; sit comfortably in front of your HD-9 or other machine compatible with this foot, and stitch layers and/or thicknesses of leather and other materials without any problems. This NEW HD Roller foot is absolutely wonderful for top stitching amongst other techniques. 

Here you can easily see the roller foot and the needle position.

Below is the bulletin published by Janome which is a very good reference for the HD roller foot. PLEASE NOTE as per the bulletin below that this HD roller foot is NOT compatible with low shank machines and models which have an integrated upper feed dog system (that would be the MC6600P and the Mc7700). The design and working of this foot requires space at the back/rear of the shank hence it will not work on the machines just mentioned. Please ask your local Janome dealer if you are in doubt as to whether you have a high or low shank machine.  The HD Roller foot IS compatible with high speed straight stitch models (1600P and HD9) and all high shank 7mm and 9mm models except for the 2 listed above.

    I purchased this foot when it first came out and I had really high hopes for it. No matter what I do, I can’t seem to get even stitches on it. Is there a secret trick to it? I’m desperate to make it work for me!

      Hi Tanya,

      Sorry you are having a hassle with this. Have you asked your local dealer where you purchased the foot to show you how to use it? That is really where you should go as it is difficult for us to see what you are doing and to show you on this forum. If you still cannot make it work after asking your dealer, contact me again.
