Janome Free Motion Couching Foot Review

I was able to play around with the brand new free motion couching foot for my Janome today. I used up all of today's "quiet time" to do the stitching and shooting a few videos for you.

 I will say that the foot did not work well with the finer yarn that I wanted it for, so there's no way it will work for the Razzle Dazzle by Superior Threads, which is what I was hoping for. More info on its performance hopefully tomorrow. I hate to string you along, but my non-stitchy life is calling. It sounds a lot like, "Mom!"
I did try a really nice larger yarn with some sparkle, and it worked a lot better with this foot. Not perfect as you can see in the feather, but definitely better. So far I am not in love with the foot, but I think it definitely has something to add to my toolbox of creativity.

I will hopefully get the rest of the review, with videos, done for you by Wednesday. Hope you enjoy and please use the comments to leave questions on this foot or the technique and I will do my best to answer them.

  1. Looks good Amy! What thread did you use to stitch through the couching - a matching "colored" thread or monofilament?

    Also I know that these feet are designed to work by having you stitch "through" the couched thread rather than around them with a zigzag. But is the foot set up so that you could also use a narrow zigzag which may help with the thinner threads?
