Best Foot Forward - Concealed Zipper Foot

The Concealed Zipper Foot


Best Foot Forward - Week 2
 

For the second installment of our Best Foot Forward series, we are looking at the concealed zipper foot (this links to cat B/C foot) for Janome sewing machines.

What is it used for?

 As you would expect from it's name, the concealed zipper for enables you to insert a hidden zip into a project.  Whilst you can do this with a standard zipper foot, this particular foot makes it so much faster, and gives a higher quality result.  It works by feeding the teeth of the zip through a groove under the foot - there are two grooves, one for each side of the zip.  This enables you to sew accurately, and closely next to the zip.

The foot can be used for project that requires a zip - clothing, cushions, bags...

 

How does it fit on?

It snaps on, so just as quick to put on as a standard zipper foot. 

 

How much is it?

The foot costs £15.  

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...

This is not a standard foot, so none of our machines come with it, so needs to be bought as an extra.

If you have never used one before, and are interested in seeing how they work,  Janome have a short video showing how to use the foot
