Best Foot Forward – Border Guide Foot

The Border Guide Foot

This week the focus is on the Border Guide Foot (this links to Janome cat B foot).

Border guide foot

What is it used for?
This foot makes it easy to sew parallel lines of stitching, particularly decorative stitches.
It works well with sewing machines that can monogram, this foot makes it easy to keep the lines of words level with one another.

How does it fit on?
It snaps on, so is easy and quick to change – no need to get the screwdriver out.

How much is it?
This Janome foot currently costs £24. Before ordering a foot, make sure you know whether you need category A or B/C as they are slightly different (although the same price). The category corresponds with whether the bobbin is a top or front loading, so if you can give us your machine model number, or even describe it, we can match you with the right one.

Any other info…
Here is a short video from Janome showing how the foot works.
