Since the needle is hitting the foot, change the needle, because the point will be damaged & try sewing again

  • some sewing machine come with a needle position setting knob where you can move the needle to the right, left, or middle.

    your doesn't have one, the zipper foot should have a adjustable bar at the back of it & there should be a screw that you can unscrew alittle bit to move the bar to the left or right of the center, so you won't hit the zipper or the zipper foot.

    hopes this helps

Using invisible zipper foot - needle hitting foot


We need to know the brand and model of your machine? Some zipper feet slide left or right. If yours does this, then you need to adjust the zipper foot so the needle doesn't hit.

I need instuctions on using different presser foot for ja nome schoolmate


Please add a comment with the specific model of Janome Schoolmate sewing machine.

Fpr the Janome Schoolmate S-3015, make sure that the needle is fully up and raise the presser foot. Then press the red button on the back of the presser foot holder to have that foot drop off. Set the pressure dial to 3 before attaching the new presser foot. For snap-on feet, align the pin of the presser foot (the horizontal bar in the middle of the foot) under the presser foot holder. Lower the presser foot holder (using the presser foot height lever) until it locks onto the foot.

For the zipper foot, you need to fit the rear pin on the foot into groove at the back of the presser foot holder. Then lower the presser foot holder onto the zipper foot.

These are shown on page 11 (14 of the PDF) of the manual. You can download the manual here: http://janome.com/en/machines/sewing/schoolmate-s-3015/ . The direct link to the manual is http://janome.com/siteassets/support/manuals/school-models/schoolmate3015.pdf .

For the S-7330, you need to again raise the needle and the presser foot. Press the lever towards (it moves slightly up, not down) the presser foot holder. Then line up the pin on the foot under the presser foot holder and lower the presser foot holder onto the foot so that it locks. This is also in that sewing machine's manual, here: http://janome.com/siteassets/support/manuals/school-models/inst-book-s-7330esf.pdf . See page 14 (18 of the PDF).

I hope this helps.

What type of foot do I need when attaching popper closure tape to a duvet cover.It needs to leave more space under foot for popper height.


You do NOT want to sew over the popper. Instead, use a narrow zipper foot and adjust your machine needle to stitch just on the very edge of the tape. Hitting a popper will definitely break your needle and possibly knock the machine out of time.

Be sure to get the right foot to fit your machine!

Your machine's zipper foot may not look like this, but it should give you the basic idea.

How do I Fix a Zipper Foot to my Janome sewing Machine


It should attach the same way any other presser foot attaches. If it is the square type with small holes or notches on each side, you move the needle to line up with one of those holes. If the needle does not have a separate side to side adjustment, usually you can move it using the width adjustment on the machine, as if you were going to stitch zig zag. If it is the long narrow kind, it will also have notches or holes on each side that you line up the needle with. Make sure the needle will go up/down without hitting the foot at all.
