200-132-008 - Overedge Foot - Use with an overcasting stitch to allow the thread to wrap around the edge of the fabric to prevent unravelling. The foot guides the fabric and keeps your edges flat by compensating for the lack of friction when the needle makes the right-most stitch.

Specialised Bobbin

Designed for Memory Craft embroidery and computerised models. Rubber added to the clear resin improves performance and reduces noise. Imprinted with letter ‘J.’

200-126-009

3-Way Cording Foot

The 3-way cording foot will hold one, two or three fine cords or threads. Because they are attached to the foot, the required design can be easily followed and the cords are perfectly placed. A variety of utility or decorative stitches can be sewn over the cords to couch them onto base fabrics. The choice of cord, thread and stitch are all contributory factors to the final effect.

Darning Foot (Regular)

Sometimes referred to as the embroidery foot, the darning foot is used for ‘free hand’ embroidery and darning to ensure proper stitch formation, minimise skipped stitches and puckering and also protect your fingers while you move your fabric freely under the needle. Especially beneficial to those just learning how to do free hand embroidery. The open toe version greatly improves the visibility of stitches and is especially popular with quilters.

200-131-007

Button Sewing Foot

Quick and easy button sewing with the special button sewing foot. This foot has two bars that attach to the foot shank to provide extra stability and also has a textured, rubber sleeve to hold the button securely in place while sewing.

200-140-009

Binder Foot

The binder foot is used to apply pre-folded bias binding tape or bias tape you have cut yourself to the edge of fabric in one easy step. It is equipped with a small funnel to fold and guide the binding over the fabric edge before it reaches the needle and can be used with either zigzag or decorative stitches as well as a straight stitch. 10 mm to 14 mm bias tape can be used.

200-141-000

Ultra Glide Foot

The ultra glide foot is moulded from a special resin allowing easier sewing of fabrics that may otherwise stick to the standard metal foot such as ultra suede, faux leather and plastic.

200-142-001

Roller Foot

As its name suggests this foot has rollers that roll against the fabric and act very much like the track on a bulldozer for sewing up and over heavy seams and uneven surfaces. Ideal for sewing heavy fabrics the rollers move freely between the foot and the feed dogs so that the foot rides easily over varying thicknesses. Also used to sew sticky leathers and vinyl.

200-328-003

Pintucking Foot – Shallow Grooved

The pin tucking foot is used with a 2 mm twin needle to create multiple rows of pintucks. The grooves on the underside of the foot make it easy to stitch several rows parallel and evenly spaced from each other.

532-504-003

Bobbin Case – Household Sewing

Front and side-loading machines require a separate bobbin case which also acts to control the bobbin tension. Although not generally recommended, more advanced sewists like to adjust the lower tension to accommodate special threads, such as when using a hand-wound bobbin of thicker decorative thread. You can avoid tricky tension adjustments afterwards by having an extra bobbin case on hand specially adjusted for thicker or thinner threads.

Concealed Zipper Foot

Good quality ready to wear garments will often have an invisible zip fitted. These zippers are often neglected by the home dressmaker which is a pity because they can ensure success every time. Invisible zips are suitable for all fabrics from fine silk jersey through to suit weight wools and tweeds. The key is to get the needle as close to the fastener as possible, which this foot accomplishes by slightly unrolling the zipper just before the needle. Once fitted, a well sewn invisible zipper will merely look like part of the seam.

Blind Hem Foot

Blind hemming can sometimes be a little bit tricky so the blind hem foot goes some way to helping improve this technique. The foot has a metal guide in the centre and three grooves on the underside. During blind hemming, the fold of the fabric fits snugly against the guide in the foot for accuracy while the grooves underneath help to prevent unnecessary slipping. The needle swings over the metal guide creating slack in the upper tension so that the pick of the stitch is almost invisible.
