    I have a Pfaff 7570 and a stitch in the ditch foot. I has a bar that will stay in the ditch and the needle stitches right behind it. I hava bernina 930 and it has a blind hem foot you can adjust to do the same thing. I use them both. I like anything that will help me do the best job.

    Boy, am I behind the times. I'd never heard of a SID foot until now. Does someone have a picture of one that I can see?

    I just use my walking foot. What's the difference?

    Are you familiar with the 1/4" foot that has the little guard on the side? It looks somewhat like that but the 'guard' is in the center of the foot so it sticks out in front of the presser foot so it should drop right into the seam to help you guide the needle in the proper place. I find I have to move my needle to the right a bit to get it in the correct place though. I just did a Search online and Janome has a nice picture of it. I suppose some of the other machine makers have the pictures for their machines, too. I highly recommend the attachment for your walking foot though so you have that guide as well as the walking foot. It works really nicely together.

    I have one & use it all the time for table runners quilts, it is a very hand foot to have if you do a lot of sewing of these items.

    Maybe you could go to local sewing machine dealer and ask to try one on one of their demo machines? Take a little fabric "sandwich" with you to practice on....most dealers are more than happy to let you try their machines and accessories.

    I like it but it took a little practice.

    I have never used one. I use my walking foot and go a bit slower than sewing a seam and it works just fine. I think you have to make the decision that is best for you.

    Is there an actually DITH foot or is it a walking foot?

    They are 2 different things, unless you purchase the attachment for the walking foot. The SITD foot resembes the 1/4" foot but with the guide in the center of the presser foot instead of along the side. Go to Janome's website and look for that foot. They have a good picture of it. I purchased the attachment because I wanted the benefits of both the walking foot and SITD on kids' quilts. Makes it go so much faster and more accurate.

    But I do use it for other techniques and love it :D:D:D
    I also went back to the walking foot. The foot kept digging in the corners making it hard to turn with ease.

    You can buy a walking foot for your Janome which has a SITD attachment to it - I have one myself!

    I just saw a Janome 1/4 inch foot with two attachments that work with the foot. One is for 1/4 inch edge of foot for making accurate seams and the other for doing stitch-in-the-ditch. I will check it out at the next quilt show at the Janome booth. so I don't know the price. I do find that the right foot helps greatly with what ever you are trying to do...

    I have used a foot called an "edge stitch foot" which has a guide that follows along the edge of the fabric.
