After some 25 yrs plus of using a Pfaff, I needed a new machine. Local Pfaff dealer had gone out of business when owner died. Looked around and settled on a Janome Memory Craft 6600P. I really like the machine, (after the usual learning curve), except for the 1/4 metal foot that came with it. I got so frustrated with that metal piece on the side, that I snapped it off. Found I could still do a 1/4" seam. I had also gotten the clear, red striped 1/4 foot, but I don't use it because it has a metal piece that is suppose to be used. Haven't tried the Dual Feed 1/4" yet, it has an even bigger piece of black metal on its side.
Has anyone else experienced the same frustration with these feet?
