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.

This Accessory of the Month has a bonus project for you to make.
