Janome Sharp Needles – Accessory of the Month May 2024

 

Did you know that a needle gram for gram is the most important piece of metal on your machine. If you are sewing along at 600 stitches per minute, your needle is piercing the fabric TEN times per second. Each and every time, it must put your thread in exactly the right place at the right time for every stitch. It’s no wonder a worn needle can cause problems for your machine. You should start each new project with a new needle. Even better, you should choose the brand of needle constructed for your machine.

Janome needles are specifically designed for your machine, they are engineered to enable your Janome machine to produce the best quality stitches. Janome sharp needles have a sharp point which cuts through tightly woven fabric and is ideal for natural fabrics. Our sharp needles are suitable for linen, cotton, chiffon, georgette, net, fine lace, voile, gingham, muslin, poplin, gabardine, broadcloth, velvet, wool, fake fur, curtain fabrics and more woven fabrics.

¼” Seam Foot without Guide – Accessory of the Month April 2024

 

This foot is the sister foot to the original ¼” Seam Foot with a Guide and is supplied with some Janome 9mm models.

Having no guide, align the right edge of the foot with the fabric edge to stitch a ¼ inch seam in from the fabric edge. The wide footprint allows for the fabric to be fed evenly and controlled while stitching a ¼” seam. Having no guide gives stitching versatility, patchworkers can quickly stitch fabric pieces into blocks, by drawing a centre diagonal line then stitch a ¼” seam on either side, cut along the drawn line to give 2 patchwork blocks. Alternatively, use this foot to topstitch along the fabric edge or parallel to a seamline to embellish your project/garment. The oval hole in the foot allows for the needle position to be adjusted, so a ¼” seam can become a scant ¼” seam.

A handy foot to have for your machine.
