Hi,
I'm looking to buy feet for my Janome 7061nx. I prefer feet that snap-on. Do other brands have that? I bought a generic overcast foot and it wasn't snap-on, then I found a multi-purpose foot that came with my machine that did that already (doh!). Are there generic snap-on feet? I'm buying them in a batch from ebay with hopes to save on shipping. There are no close Janome dealers near me and I'm car-less Feedback would be much appreciated!

These are the feet I'm considering:

1. Deluxe Walking Foot w/guide Bar. (I believe there is a Janome brand - does it matter?)

2. 1/4" seam guide foot - I can't sew straight no matter how slowly I go. Is there a multi-purpose or adjustable version of this? Would it work just as well? Janome Coverpro has one, but would it work on my machine? Is there something like this that I can use? http://www.eleen.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2008/08/img_3169.jpg (I don't have the hole to screw in though)

3. Edge joining foot (is that the same as stitch in the ditch)?

4. Piping foot (to be mainly used as invisible zipper foot? How many pipes are required?)

5. Knit foot (I don't own a serger and I like knits)

6. Hemmer foot (is there a multi-adjustable version?)

7. 7mm open applique (will this allow me to do freehand cute symbols like apples with thread? Is 7mm the max length?)

Well, I can't tell you what you will need, but be sure to get "horizontal" feet - meaning feet for your drop in bobbin machine. You can buy from Sears online as long as the selections are horizontal machine feet, also from Janome dealers online like Sew Vac Direct, etc. I like to be sure I am getting the proper feet, and i have purchased many from SewVacDirect because they have a section of feet for top loading machines (horizontal) and a section for front loading machines (those machines with a vertical bobbin). That way I know what I have ordered, and I have been happy. Sears Kenmore is made by Janome, and the feet properly identified are from Janome. I have also ordered from Sears for Kenmore and Janome machines.

Yes, there is a guide foot made by Janome. Take a look at the Janome website and the accessory section and you will see pictures of the feet!

Good luck!

Ahh, I didn't know about the top/horizontal feet. Thanks, that's really important to know!

I looked at the Janome website and I see there are lots of feet just for 1600 series or the Coverpro of which I'm neither I couldn't find any adjustable seam guide for my machine, and it looks like for the fixed 1/4" seam guide I want the 1/4 inch seam foot O, and it seems like stitch in the ditch is the same as the edge joiner.

Here is one guide foot I like, called the border guide foot:

Here is a link to the feet and there are pictures...

Your machine is a nice one - it is mostly the same in so many ways as the 2007 machine and a few others. Have a good time!

I have ordered from Brubakers on their ebay site and a lady there provided excellent help via email. Som eof the feet weren't listed and she listed them specially for me on ebay, as it was easier for me to purchase on ebay than from their main site.

Brubakers also fast shipped them at a fabulously low cost, to Australia, where all our accessories are much more expensive.

http://brubakerssewing.com/store/index.php/sewing-machine-accessories/janome.html

I presume you are in the US so you could easily telephone them for confirmation of which accessories are suitable. The number is on the page linked below.

From my experience, the Janome snap on feet can be used on most Janome machines - I still use those purchased with my first Janome back in 1984. I have three different Janome top loading bobbin models, which all use the same snap on feet.

The stitch in the ditch is the same as the edge joiner as is the S foot - a must have for topstitching.
I would recommend buying the Janome genuine feet.
The invisible zipper foot is excellent too.

Yes, and the Kenmore feet are Janome feet, so they count as well!In fact they are shipped from JAMAC which is Janome America. I haven't tried generic feet because Janome feet are so reasonable. Why buy a machine and then buy generic feet?! Unless you just cannot get the foot you need from the same company. Any foot you buy is going to last practically forever, unless you manage, as I did, to break your overcasting foot by not setting the correct width of the stitch!

Thanks for the links and tips everyone!
The Brubaker site looks interesting. Hopefully shipping is cheap to Canada! I noticed they have 3 different types of Janome walking feet for my top loader:
1. Convertible Even Feed Foot Set - $60
2. Even Feed Foot Set (open Toe) - $27
3. Even Feed Foot Set with quilt guide - $26

?? Hmm...which one do I want ??

Yikes the prices of the janome even feed foot really went up! Not they are arounf $50 to $60.
Does it really matter if the generic feet are used?
Janome (of course) told me you hav to use janome feet but... they so much cheaper.
I have a 4900qc
