Day 9 of our 12 days of Holiday ideas with Janome : Border Guide foot


Having problems lining up or evenly spacing your border designs or rows of decorative stitching? Stitch building just got a whole lot easier to do! The Janome Border Guide Foot helps you to easily match up your border designs with the red lines of the foot. No need to mark every row beforehand!

The Janome Border Guide foot is available for both 9mm (Part # 202084000) and 7mm machine models (Part # 200434003) so we got you covered!

The secret to the border guide foot lies in the red guide marks on the foot. The two sets of vertical red lines are parallel to allow perfect spacing of rows. The horizontal red line matches the needle drop so you can line up the start & end of each row. The small red mark denotes the center of the foot and is perfect for lining up with a previously stitched row.

And a combo of elongated satin stitches with another daisy or star stitch. This was stitched using the border guide foot to achieve such regularly spaced and straight rows.

Want to watch a video showing how to use this foot? Here is a link.

To stitch the in between lines, line up the 2 rows already stitched between the 2 inner red lines. The video link above shows more.

Here is a simple Christmas project that needs the Border Guide foot to obtain that perfectly stitched border.

    I love this foot – I bought it after your other post about the fancy stitch designs on your machine. I made a “gingerbread” quilt for my daughters birthday using it for the fancy stitching and it turned out excellent!
