    Why aren't you raving? What do you feel is the cons, even if they do work?

    Curious here.

    Satinedge has always been the most popular and if you understand all it is used for,it would be left on the machine 80% of them time.

    This foot ALL by itself and on any sewing machine can do this:

    Appliqué
    Cutwork
    Lettuce Edging
    Petite Appliqué
    Satin Stitch Edging
    Trapunto Appliqué
    Corded Satin Stitch Edging
    Fishing Line Edges
    Over casting
    Wire Eddges
    Edge Stitching
    1/4" seams
    Scant 1/4" Seams
    Pintucking
    Stitching In A Ditch
    Top Stitching
    Invisible Appliqué / Garments
    Invisible Appliqué / Quilts
    Invisible Binding
    YOU NEVER HAVE TO HAND STITCH AGAIN ;) and when you're finished you don't see ANY stitch at all Yippie! Even on binding.

    - the feet do 88 different things - you don't have to do all of those however, if you bought every foot from every manufacturer you would still only be able to do 40% of what our 3 feet do.

    No sewing machine has these feet - the copies of my feet that they have are NOT the same and don't sew as well.

    Have any questions? I'm ready to answer :)
    Clare, ummm.

    Could you stop talking like your doing a sales pitch. I keep thinking the sham wow guy is gonna pop up. I know your stuff is imp to you, but if we wanted the sales pitch we'd read it on your site. We'd rather know you, the person.

    I really appreciate the information that has been provided. I went to three different sites and none of them had the information that I found in clarerowley's post. I wanted to know more from someone who had actually had experience with the feet to help me make up my mind. I'm a little confused about one of the posts where one poster seems to be reprimanded and her post is defined as a "sales pitch," while another poster is reprimanded for not "raving," both from the same responder.

    I have seen Clare demonstrate the feet and have used them in many situations that I don't have the proper foot for my machine. The feet work as she says. Ya it sounds like a sales pitch, but the product really works.

    You comment seems very unkind. There were 7 pages of posts looking for information. As the inventor, I think Clare was perfectly within her rights to explain what her product could do. If her web site had been available we would have gone there for the same information!

    Many of us appreciate that she posted the board directly to give us the information and I wish her the best of luck!

    The poster who I said was not raving, I was quoting that person. I was asking why she wasn't. I wanted to get their opinion. Re REad the quoted text. The person put raving in quotation marks like "Raving".

    The whole just curious here part also indicates I wasn't reprimanding her. I simply wanted to know why the person felt the way they did about the product.

    Example.

    While a cast iron frying pan works I likely would not be "raving" about one unless it is a Lodge Skillet pan. I wanted to know what the person who said "raving' felt the product lacked for them not to love it.

    The Sales pitch, is if you look on the site and what Clare is saying her the same thing.

    I don't think it's unkind to ask someone to be themselves and not sell me via an advertising spiel. I don't come to this board to be advertised to, if I wanted that, I'd click on the advertising flashies that flash to me, which ironically enough are eve related stuff. I come to converse with people.

    For instance info for me, would be to hear in her own words how you can use that quilting foot to FMQ without having to hold it down. That is more info.

    No my words were not unkind.

    The info she provided was also at the website, word for word. I personally felt uncomfortable reading the copy and paste and just asked if she could be herself.

    And to be even more honest, there isn't information on what the feet do. Not really. Information on what the feet do would be a paragraph each of each feet. Not one line on how awesome stuff is.

    I personally felt uncomfortable with the way Clare was promoting herself. I expressed it.

    Frankly that way of promoting yourself, turns me off and makes me less inclined to buy a product. For instance, I'm less inclined to buy a Kirby after hearing one of those guys do their pitch, same with rainbow. If one of them came on here to talk and talked the same way they did their sales pitch, I'd be very leery about buying anything else.

    I simply asked her to be herself. Not to be the sales person.
