Janome 11000 Roller Foot
Sewing vinyl and velvet
The roller foot has a little internal roller to give you better traction when sewing over sticky or shifting materials, like chiffon, velvet, organza, leather and vinyl. The foot comes in two sizes: a 5mm for oscillating hook machines, and a 7mm for horizontal rotary hook models.
- Just snap the appropriate foot on your machine and sew vinyl like any other material. The roller foot keeps it from sticking. I am using the 7mm foot on the Memory Craft 11000 Special Edition, which is wide enough to accommodate all decorative stitches. It can just as easily sew velvet. This vinyl place mat was made with the roller foot, and here’s a vinyl card holder, made with decorative stitches.
