The AcuFeed feeding system evenly feeds fabric from both the top and bottom. This allows you to sew through many layers of fabric very easily without slipping, or warping the layers.
The system includes two types of foot holders: this Single attachment, which has one upper feed dog and uses narrower feet for work like installing zips, and the Twin attachment, which has two upper feed dogs and uses wider feet.
The Single AcuFeed foot holder is a standard accessory (included with the machine) with these models: MC15000, MC14000, MC12000, and Skyline S9.
It is available as an optional extra accessory for these models: MC8200, MC8900, MC9400, MC9450, Skyline S6, and Skyline S7.
The beauty of the AcuFeed system is the versatility of the feet. They slide in and out of the holder easily.
How To Install An AcuFeed Foot (Twin or Single)
To use an AcuFeed foot, you first install it on the foot holder, then attach the foot holder to the machine:
- Place the pins of the foot in the grooves of the ankle, and then push them together. (To change the foot, pull the foot out of the grooves, and put the new foot in place.)
- To attach the AcuFeed holder to your machine, first loosen the screw on the side of the shaft and remove the current foot holder.
- Hold the AcuFeed holder in place and tighten the screw.
Note: Our Janome feet are genuine Janome accessories. Beware of bogus generic products that claim that because it fits a Janome, it is a Janome part. Only genuine Janome accessories come through the rigorous supply chain of Janome Sewing Machine Co., Ltd founded in Japan in 1921.
