Often the hard part is to come up with exactly the right tool, for the right job, at the right price. Of course, there is no doubt that in order to create beautiful things, you need to practice.....
But the first step in creating professional finishing is having the right tools.

Is this a Genuine Janome Foot?
Unlike some others in the market, this foot is made by the same people that make Janome sewing machine parts. At the same factory where Janome gets their parts made and packaged - located only a few minutes down the road from Janome's own factory.
This company is a third-generation family business that specialises in presser feet and parts. They are one of the few certified makers for Janome, Brother, Singer, Pfaff and others. If Janome and other brands can trust them - you can trust the quality too.
I've personally visited the factory to verify for myself. I was genuinely impressed because of their a high-quality assurance standard - specified by Janome Japan - the parent company of Janome Australia.
The only difference is in the packaging. I'm calling mine "generic" because we had ours packaged under our own brand.
This means I'm 100% happy and confident that you and your sewing machine are in safe hands - because I recommend this foot to all my students, and use it for my own sewing too!
So do our happy customers - here's just one of many reviews:
The Trouble with Binding Starts...
When your project calls for binding to finish its raw edge, normally the binding itself has to be cut on a bias (which means diagonally to the straight grain of your fabric).
Bindings cut on the bias have the most amount of flexibility so it can go around curves like neckline and armholes smoothly.
The downside of having this flexibility means plenty of movements...... and that means your binding will stretch and wiggle as if it has a life of its own!
Imagine trying to get it to follow your curved edges precisely, while doing your best to make sure your stitches are neat, even, AND catching ALL layers. Not to mention the Unpicking!

NOTE: You May Have Seen a "Cone" Shaped Metal Attachment for Bias Binding.
That looks nothing like this one here. So what's the difference?
Well, Here's what a budding seamstress finds when she tried on the "cone" type:
What makes this foot "universal"? How does it adjust?
Take a closer look, you will see two adjustable screws or "dials".
The screw or "dial" closest to the red marking is where you can make adjustments to suit the width of your binding (which has been pressed into its finished size ready to go).
As you move the screw or "dial" in or out, you will see the slot in front of the presser foot change size...
This is the slot where you "feed" your binding through.
The red markings are in millimetres (mm), so it's easy to adjust it to suit bindings with widths that range from 5mm to 18mm (see note below)*.... this means you're covered for most sewing projects imaginable!
How do you work out the correct binding width & adjust the foot accordingly?
First, measure your binding folded, as if it is already finished. That's your binding width.
The true "reading" should be at the end of the screw (you can see it through the plastic), and NOT the faint line which is the edge of the plastic guide (they looks like two little triangles when you look at the foot from the front). Hope you can see from the picture above...
So when you adjusted the foot to the maximum it will go, it actually looks like there is a line that stops at just over 10mm (that's the faint line mentioned above), but if you look at it from the front (where the bindings go in), there is more room for a wider binding.
The end of the screw finishes a bit over the 15mm marking. It won't go any further because there is no more thread on the screw. So does that mean you can only do bindings up to 15mm wide? Not necessarily.
If you measure the actual slot width, from the little folded "lips" on the left-hand side to the end at the right-hand side, and the maximum measurement is, in fact, 17-18mm (which covers most store-bought binding widths anyway).
Now, what does that other screw or "dial" do?
It determines where your stitching goes in relation to your binding.
Would you like it really close to the edge? Or a bit further?
You can change this by adjusting this screw/dial, or change your needle position instead.
Next, feed your binding through the slot...
..... and place your fabric BETWEEN the opening of your binding and start sewing.
It's as simple as that!
This method may or may not suit your project, because each fabric is different. Give yours a try.....
When you try sewing your binding on WITHOUT this foot, you will find:
- You end up with "gaps" where the bindings miss the fabric.
- Your curve lines turn out "bumpy" instead of smooth.
- Now, you either resolve to pinning the living daylight out of it (and do your best to avoid pinpricks) or simply hand-tacking it all the way. Not fun...
- Worst of all: you go to unpick the problem area for the zillionth time, only to find that you've got a permanent perforation (from all your previous unpick attempts) where your stitches should be. So you'd have to start all over again....!
Because the weave of your fabric can only withstand a limited amount of manipulation, especially on a curve!
You see, each time you push the fabric through the machine, the needle & thread push aside the fibres, create holes and "lodge" themselves into your fabric.
Which means each time you remove an unsuccessful attempt, some of the holes are left behind.....
This causes stress and affects the weave of your fabric, and that's where your problem begins... put your pattern on your piece now and you will see that all the unpicking has cause enough distortion. Oh NO!
So, What's a Budding Seamstress to Do?
