    Ladies and gentlemen! I am in 7th heaven! Today, while roaming around in the quilt shop I found a Ditch Quilting Foot for my Janome. I don't know if other machine manuf. have this foot but let me tell you, it's divine! I came home and made up a "quilt"....of about 7" square and put the foot on. I have now quilted the BEST stitch in the ditch seam I've EVER done! No sweat, no wavering, PERFECT! It cost me $19.95 and I will guarantee you, you won't be sorry!!!! :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

    I've never heard of this kind of presser foot. It sounds neat. How does it work? Does it keep the needle 'in the ditch'? I have a 'bargain' sewing machine, which probably explains why I don't know about this presser foot.

    I have one too for my Janome, but you can't use it with Accufeed so I am kinda bummed about it. I would like to use it but when quilting I want to use accufeed.

    This is great...
    But I have no idea what it looks like
    Could someone please post a picture - I'm going to bring it to my sewing machine repair guy and see if I can pick one up...I really do need this
    Thanks,
    Bill

    I have one for my Viking and love it. Seems like it would be so easy to stitch a straight line--but not for me. This foot made a big difference.

    I tried to get back on last night but the system was down!!!!
    Here's a link for the Husqvarna stitch in the ditch foot http://husqvarnaviking.com/us/media/...t.pdf/url]LINK
    Earlier this week I did a search for "stitch in the ditch", foot -- and found someplace on the web that showed a foot for each type of shaft. I believe you can find one for every sewing machine........somewhere!

    I purchased an AcuFeed stitch in the ditch foot for my Elna for $29.99, and it's actually listed as being for the Janome. I was told it fits both brands. Works great! I got it from allbrands.com. I see their website now lists it as fitting Elna as well. I also purchased from them AcuFeed feet for quarter inch (which comes with a marked needle plate), and the Open Toe Satin Stitch. They also have an AcuFeed ruffler (which I did not get).

    Here's a link to the foot itself:

    Another foot I really like and has made a big difference in my accuracy is the quarter-inch foot. It has a metal side thingy that the fabric butts up against. I had marked the 1/4inch with tape and post-its but for some reason this works great. I think it was $19.99 for my Viking but I'd pay double that now that I can see how much more accurate my seams are.

    suzic46 -- I got it at my local Janome dealer! He's in the same shop as the quil shop. That's dangerous, you know. Can't tell you how many times I've gone in to get fabric and have drooled over the expensive machines!! :mrgreen:

    I have one for my Viking. But I don't use it very often any more. I don't do a lot of SID quilting with my DSM, now that I have the mid-arm setup.

    The ditch foot has a piece of metal down the middle that keeps it in the ditch..
    I love it for sewing the back binding on by sewing in the ditch on the front of the quilt. It keeps me from wandering away from the ditch.

    Yep, got one for my Pfaff. It sure helps staying in the Ditch.

    That was an excellent find for $19.99! :thumbup:

    Sears on-line has generic sewing machine accessories that fit my Viking. But, their walking foot is $25.99 with a quilting bar, a lot less expensive than buying Vikings.
    Here's the Sears site if anyone is interested:

    I also got my "Stitch in the Ditch" foot
    from the Sears on-line store. They are
    so much thriftier!! I must confess that
    "Quiltintime" gave mine to me, as a gift.
    Now, how much lees, can you get one than
    that? I just love it too.
    :D :D :D :D :D :D

    I believe what you are referring to is a 1/4 inch foot w/guide. It has a plate that keeps you from having the fabric go outside the 1/4 in space, unless you want the guide jutting into your fabric. It's one of those feet that's great, but annoying when you want to do something that doesn't involve a 1/4 inch seam exactly - I find myself having to change it all the time...
