    I have the 6600P and I can move my foot over to 4.7 or more (to the right) so I don't quite understand why you don't have much room to move your needle over? As I am quite a few days behind and have only a limited time on here right now I am not reading the full thread, so I hope someone was able to help you with this who has the same machine

    I have a 1/4" foot but prefer to use reg foot & move needle over. Put a post-it on machine to remind me.....

    I still like the saying "If you can't see it while riding a horse ten feet away, don't worry about it'. No one is perfect and no one's quilt should be either. But I do use the 1/4inch foot on my Janome 7700.
