    I have a Janome 6500 and I have this for my machine---------- I have not tried it yet.

    http://www.amazon.com/Distinctive-7-...0787620&sr=8-1

    but if that one does not work- I think I will try this one-

    Either one of these you can call and see if they will work on your machine; just be sure to ask about the return policy. I love ruffles...........

    Thank you so much!!! I'm excited now, I watched the video on youtube and thats it, it just pops right on
    I wonder though if that first website has the pop on kind? I will have to ask because for 50 bucks thats a steal
    for all those extra feet you made my day Lisa :-)

    Normanally there is also a place to unscrew the foot as well as just the pop in foot. I know on my Janome I have to use the screw part to put my walking foot on.
    Good Luck!

    You are more than welcome!!! I hope it works out for you- I bought the set on amazon cause you get more feet for a small amount- they work on my Janome and my brother I have 2 sets from them and I do love them and they are snap in.

    Have fun with your ruffler and be sure to share pics when your done; can't wait to see the end results!!!
    Have a great day!!!

    Rosebud-

    My distintive ruffler goes on the same way as my quilting foot; it is not a snap on foot- I just pulled out the directions for it and put it on my machine and it fits perfectly (it does come with step by step instructions. Hope this helps....

    Rosebud,

    The ruffler doesn't snap on. You have to unscrew the "shaft attachment" and remove it, and then place and tighten the screw to attach the ruffler, in the same way you would do it on a machine that doesn't use snap on feet.
    One day, you'll only be a memory for some people. Do your best to be a good one.
