I bought myself the 'hemline universal zipper foot'. It says 'fits almost every machine.' Well mine must be one it doesn't I have a janome (J3-18) and I just can't figure out how I'm supposed to attach it?! All my other feet just 'clip' on?!
Help!

Is it a screw on foot? So that you need to unscrew the part that has the clip on feature and replace it with the whole foot...

Hope that makes sense.

A small screwdriver should have come with your machine. You need to unscrew the screw on the left side of the shank and remove the whole snap-on setup. You can then attach the zipper foot and screw into place.

On this video, at 10:35, you can see the screw that I'm talking about. Not sure if you have that large screw shown. I think it can be purchased additionally at a dealer to replace the small, flat-ish one you may have.
