On our Saturday Sewing slot here on Janome Life last Saturday 5th June, Celine from Blue Calla Patterns and one of our Janome Canada artisans, used the HD roller foot as she sewed cork applique onto a bag. Check this out if you perhaps missed that great blog post.
I thought it would be a good idea to give you a little more information about this very useful foot. As per the bulletin below, this roller foot is not just for the Janome HD9. It is also compatible with 7mm and 9mm HIGH shank Janome machine models.
The HD stands for HEAVY DUTY. Please ask your Janome dealer if this foot is compatible with your sewing machine – or drop us a note in the comment box below and we can advise. This foot is also available in one of the Janome HD9 kits: the Leather kit
To be clear: this foot is compatible with the following Janome machines:
- For Janome 9mm wide stitch, high shank models (well all 9mm wide stitch models are high shank)
- For Janome 7mm wide stitch models which are also high shank excluding the Janome Mc6600P and Horizon Mc7700 which have the built-in upper feed mechanism)
- For high speed straight stitch models: Janome 1600P and Janome HD9
This foot is not compatible with low shank models. Please ask your local Janome dealer if you are not sure whether your machine is low/high shank.
