In a previous post, New O2 Foot for Janome Horizon 7700QCP, we shared that Janome would be mailing the new 1/4″ foot to all registered owners of the Horizon 7700QCP when they became available. We encouraged everyone who had previously purchased a Horizon, to be sure to register on the Janome website. Earlier this week we learned that Janome finally had the new O2 feet in stock and would be sending them directly to you.
What is amazing about the new O2 foot is it is a “scant” ¼ inch, and it can be used on any Janome machine that has a top loading bobbin. This means the foot will fit any Janome machine that has a horizontal rotary hook, which includes most Janome machines, and ALL Memory Craft machines. This foot will also fit many Kenmore and Elna machines that use a snap-on foot. Bring your machine in to Temecula Valley Sewing Center if you want to be sure the foot will fit your machine before purchasing it.
Accurate ¼ inch seams are an essential secret of successful piecing. Do your quilt blocks keep turning out too small? Do the points of your stars or setting triangles get chopped off at the tips? Do the seams on your quilt tops not line up with each other? The newly developed Scant ¼ inch seam foot O2 is the answer.
Sometimes our fabric choices include varying weights within a project. A regular ¼ inch foot can cause the seam allowance to become too generous. A scant ¼ inch may shave off only a few threads, but it is often exactly what we need to keep our star points sharp and our blocks evenly fitting together.
Today Janome’s new “scant” ¼ inch foot (O2) became available to dealers to stock in their stores…and we have ordered them. We should have the new O2 feet in stock in about a week. Let us know if you would like a new O2 foot and we will tag it with your name when the new feet arrive.
