When you want the benefit of guides for piercing or ditch quilting, these can know be attached and removed as needed to suit the tak at hand. This clear view foot allows you to see through the fabric whilst the red guide lines on it help you to achieve accurate piercing without any obstruction. There is also the added bonus of an oval shaped needle hole which allows needle adjustment for scant 1/4" piercing with maximum adjustment of 1mm. Markings on the foot indicate " and 1/4" from centre needle drop position with handy cornering markings for both measurements.
No matter the zipper application - lapped, centered or exposed, this foot will not ride on top of the zipper coil. It's so versatile because you can attach the foot either to the left or right side of the needle.

The Fringe Foot, sometimes referred to as the "Tailor-Tacking Foot", has a raised bar at the front which causes the thread to stand away from the fabric. Using a simple zig-zag stitch you can create beautiul surface texture, custom trims, fringed flowers and appliues or use it to create traditional tailor tacks.
If using it for tailor tacking, once the thread loops are formed, pull the fabric slightly apart and cut. What you will hve is perfect thread markings on your fabric.
Janome Blind Hem Foot G, blind hemming can sometimes be a little bit tricky so the Blind hem Foot G goes some way to helping improve this technique. The foot has a metal guide in the centre and three lines struck on the underside. During blind hemming, the fold of the fabric snugs against the guide in the foot for accuracy whilst the lines underneath help to prevent unnecessary slipping. The needle will swing over the metal guide creating slack in the upper tension so that the pick of the stitch is almost invisible.
