    Janome 7700 feet

    I have a Janome 7700 with the accufeed capability. I have heard there is a 1/4 inch accufeed foot attachement and an accufeed stitch in the ditch attachment. I would like to know if anyone has used these attachements and how you like them. Thanks

    I have the stitch in the ditch attachment, honestly not a fan because I can't see where the needle is.... I use the accufeed foot that came with the machine for all of my piecing. It has made a world of difference! I set the needle to 4.9 and the fabric goes through the right feed dog just at the right edge of the right feed dog. There are many ways to test your 1/4 inch - the easiest I've seen on this forum is to get a recipe card. The lines are spaced at 1/4 of an inch. Put one line under the foot where you know you can keep an eye on the fabric and move the needle over until it hits the line just to the left of where you want the end of your fabric to be. I hope this makes sense....

    I was going to purchase the 1/4 inch foot but after disliking the stitch in the ditch foot so much I didn't buy the 1/4 inch foot since the regular one is working fine.

          I have the 1/4" foot accufeed attachment and like it, great for when putting on the borders.

            I have the 1/4" Acufeed foot and like it. Was thinking about the SITD one but haven't committed to buying it yet.

                I have the 7700 and I use the acufeed 1/4" foot for my piecing. I now have the most consistent 1/4" seams I have ever gotten on any machine, even my Bernina. I use the acufeed open toe for stitch-in-the-ditch because I can see exactly where the needle is going. I love, love, love my 7700. I just need to improve my fmq on my 7700 (there's nowhere to go, but up).
