Hi I just wanted to tell anyone who has a Janome coverpro machine in Ontario or Canada that Nova sewing centre in Hamilton sells all the Janome feet. I picked up a binder that is part of a snap on foot that makes belt loops...folds them and then they get stitched by the coverstitch it was $45 CDN...I also got the seam guide and the centerguide foot...they were great to deal with ..gave me a 10% discount because I purchased 3 pcs.....so off to make some pants and then belt loops....love anything that speeds up my sewing.....Chris

Chris, this foot sounds interesting
Is the image below of the 1200D foot, the same as you have?
Now I am curious as to whether the other feet for the 1200D, will fit on the CP?

Sorry! If the foot that you show works then what I posted doesn't make sense!

When you are talking about the coverpro machine, do you mean the dedicated coverstitch machines 900CP and 1000CP, or are you talking about the 1200D or compulock sergers that convert to a coverstitch?

Hi....I think the belt looper binder foot is the same as the picture so maybe its interchangeable as they all use snap on......I purchased this for the stand alone coverhem 1000CP but maybe it will work with any of the Janome sergers...I was told it was Pfaff who came out with it originally and it was very expensive but Janome has developed it for their machines... at Nova sewing centre.they had all kinds of cool feet for the CP I was a kid in a candy shop never mind I discovered about 6 fabric stores there also ..it was a mini NYC garment district....bad for the pocket book but great for the stash...Chris

That does look like the Pfaff/Elna belt loop foot. I have an Elna coverlock and Pfaff and Elna coverlocks can share the same feet with many being identical.
But..now Janome heads Elna and several of the Janome and Elna sergers/coverlock models are much alike and Elna now has the cover hem machine model 434 that is I believe the same as the Janome CP1000 so maybe we will have a lot more feet that can be shared between different brands and models.
The belt loop foot is shown on the Elna site under their coverhem combo machines but I haven't seen the belt loop foot yet listed under the Elna 434 cover hem model but it is a fairly new listing on the Elna USA site.
There is a video on how to use the foot on the site sewingmachine-sales.co.uk/sewing_machine_info/video and it is down the page listed as Strap and Beltloop foot L. Just click on the name of the foot and the video shows at the top of the page.

20 years ago when I bought my serger, I was told that the Elna, Pfaff, and New Home=MyLock=Janome sergers were all made in the same factory, and were of similar quality with regard to repairs, though the features and cosmetics differed a little. The other serger factory at the time made all the other sergers, which often needed repairs or timing adjustments. Maybe the Janome, Elna, and Pfaff sergers are still made together?

BTW, this was not true for the sewing machines. The Elna and Janome machines are now under the same parent company, but they weren't then, and I don't think the Pfaff sewing machine line is related to the other two.

Chris,

Is the belt loop foot working? Have you used it? We are all waiting with baited breath for the answer!

I'm going to post this because I'm not sure the original question has been answered. I have the Janome 1100D serger which is the same as the 1200D (the same exact shell was used) except it doesn't have the 5th thread, doesn't do coverstitch, and has a tilt needle. I also have the CP1000 (and a New Home-Janome MC6000 with snap-on feet). The pin on the feet are at different heights for all machines but both the serger and the CP can accept the pintuck foot from my sm HOWEVER when I go to try to switch feet between the serger and the CP, the needles don't line up (of course not as I don't have needles in the CP position on my serger). But it also looks as if, if the 1100D had the 1200D serger needles, the feet still would not line up. Hopefully what I'm saying is clear. I may be wrong but it really doesn't look as if feet for the 1200D will be able to be used on the CP1000 due to the alignment of the needles. Again, my serger has a different needle shank for a tilt needle, but when I look at the place where the serger needles would be if this were the 1200D, the needles still don't line up with the foot from the CP1000.

grandma, I don't know about changing feet between your machines but you don't really need a pin tuck foot if you have a serger. Pin tucks can be done very quickly and easily with the regular foot on your serger. Just fold or press or draw on the fabric where you wish the tucks to be and use a narrow 2 or 3 thread rolled hem and stitch down the fold or crease to make the tucks.

Fictionfan, Pfaff is now with Viking and Singer (VSP) and yes Janome heads Elna..in fact the new Elna 7100 straight stitch quilt machine seems to be the exact same as one of the Janome 1600 models and it even has the lavender trim.
