I have gotten a new toy. The Tricot Foot. Have seen great reviews for it on the SewVacDirect site where I purchased it, and in a forum.
Stitcher's Guild re Tricot Foot.

Does anyone have this foot, and know how to place the "wing" arm that sticks up and controls the little plastic friction piece under the foot? I have searched the web and found only pictures of the foot, and no instructions or pictures of the foot in place. Odd that Janome puts this one in a plastic bag and the easy ones in cards with instructions!I would love a picture, but failing that I would appreciate any instructions at all!

Only guessing here, but have you tried putting the arm on the needle clamp (the same as a walking foot)? Does the arm reach that high?

Hope you figure this out, how frustrating.

Thanks so much for answering! I haven't tried yet because I would rather have some hint as to how to do it than futz around. I have found that in the past when I just try things out I frequently get myself into trouble!

I posted on the Sewing Machine forums and got next to nothing, although I did get good wishes! I wonder if anyone knows how to attach the Janome Tricot Foot or knows of a blog or site with info. I cannot find anything online at all but pictures and one forum post over at Sticher's Guild.

I would be ever so grateful for information about this foot - I have it now and am looking forward to testing it out!

I'm sorry I have no clue really. Maybe you can email Janome and ask them? Or do you have a Janome dealer close by?

Is it supposed to be used to connect trim (lace or ribbon) to tricot fabric? Or is it just for sewing two (or more) layers of fabric together?

Let us know what you find out.

Looking at the foot really doesn't give you a clue as to how to use it, does it? Interesting concept -- hope you find out how it works and can report back.

The name of the foot is deceiving - it doesn't really mean "nylon tricot" as in panties, but the foot is used to sew together very light, very slippery knits. As in "tricot knit." I thought it looked interesting, and from the review I was snagged.I do love feet. Of course it's one of the Janome feet that comes in a plastic bag rather than in the card with the instructions. I will give it a go later on tonight and see how I do from the scant info I have. If I need to I guess I can do a picture and post that - who knows who might also want this foot! :)

I would be interested in how you like it. I have seen this foot and wonder if I will need it or maybe my Acufeed will be just fine. I sew my own clothing and will eventually need to make myself full length slips made out of tricot. Let us know how it goes!

I asked my question on "Ask Jan" on the Janome website. I asked it on Saturday night. Today, just in the last hour, I received a reply to my email address! Now that is service! In the meantime I have attached and used it. It is some snazzy little foot. I have taken pictures and will be posting a few - probably bore most people senseless, but this is some nice little piece of engineering. it installs without any problem whatsoever, and works so well - It isn't for just tricot - here in the US we think of tricot as a fabric type, but it refers to a knit process, and the foot is for any light flimsy knitted fabric - the lady on Stitcher's Guild to which I posted a link in my original post sewed bamboo lightweight fabric with her tricot foot. I think the name leads people astray. Think of it as a "Very-Lightweight-flimsy-knitted-fabric-or-any-other-very-lightweight-flimsy-fabric" foot. It will be far less clumsy than a walking foot, and works differently but in such a clever way. It holds the fabric while the needle goes through it, and lets lets up so the fabric can advance. I would use it on silk of various sorts as well. I see my link isn't in the post on this forum, so here is the link to the only info I could find.
