When I ordered my Janome Sew Precise from Kens Sewing, I got a free Rotary Even Foot with it. I never used it until the other day I went to use it and it was broken. The little foot that goes around the foot was cut. So I used my regular even foot. But I did e-mail Kens Sewing. They said to send it to them and they would go to Janome and replace it. Well a couple of day later an e-mail said they couldn't it was out of warranty time. And would I like to order another one. I decided not. I felt they were made cheep and I could use my regular evenfoot. But after I thought what am I going to do with the attachments. Well as I was looking at them I noticed one looked exactly like my Adj Binder Foot . I took it out it was the same I played around with it, and to my surprise all the attachments fit the binder foot perfectly.

I have a Janome and would like to know what exactly does a rotary even foot do? Aren't Janmoes short shank machines and you could buy feet for them anywhere? (I don't know for sure as my other machines are Singers and they are slant feet). Are there any tricks to using the binder foot? I have trouble with mine. Thank you!

Reply to Geewiz40: If it should happened to you also, maybe you would like to know your attachments are still useful.

I was hoping you'd answer Beth Pierce's questions...what does a rotary even foot do?

Reply to Beth Pierce & Sew Very Tall: I beleve it is like the The walking foot is a moving feed system that holds and moves fabric between the presser foot's upper feed dog and the machines's lower feed dogs to better control difficult fabrics as well as multiple layers of fabric. The walking foot is great for quilting, sewing when matching prints or plaids or fabric drift is an issue . Walking Feet are not for use in reverse or side to side sewing as well as some built in stitches that include other than forward movement of the feed dogs. The foot has opening in the front of the foot for better visability, and you can also change attachemnts for different hems, etc.

I still couldn't understand why this foot was named 'rotary', so I went looking and found this description online..."The Rotary Even Foot is effective for preventing fabric from slipping or puckering. It's especially useful when sewing stretchy materials like knits and hard-to-feed materials like leather or vinyl. The presser belt rotates to feed the upper and lower layers of fabric without slippage so they are fed simultaneously." ...I've never seen a 'presser belt', so it's hard to imagine.

I got curious and found this info about the rotary even feed foot. It has little 'tracks' like a tank to move the fabric along. Have never seen anything like this before . Also has attachments to attach bindings. http://www.janome.co.uk/documents/JanomeNewsSpring2008.pdf
