The 1600-DB requires a special Walking or Even Feed Foot due to the high sewing speed, so ensure that you have the correct foot, as the "normal" top loading machine foot will not fit.

I hope these images will assist in showing how the fitting should look.


This is the Normal - WRONG - foot to compare:

This is the CORRECT Foot:

From the Janome Accessories Guide:


"The even feed foot walks over fabric to assist with smooth feeding. Fabric can be sewn without puckering as the fabric is gripped and fed by both the upper and lower feed dogs. This foot has been specially designed for durability and to work at the high speeds of the 1600 series.


Part Number - 767-403-016"

How do I attach the quilting bar to the walking foot on my Simplicity Quilters Classic? The manual doesn't show how to do it


There should be a hole across the back of the walking foot (penetrates the walking foot usually from right to left, although some feet will have 2 guides--one for left to right, the other left to right) where the bar mounts and a screw to tighten and hold it in place.

Do I use a twin needle with my narrow pintucking foot on my Elna quilter's Dream 2 sewing machine?


if you want to sew pin tucks, then yes, you could use that foot providing the hole is large enough for the two needles to pass through. Twin needles come in 4mm gap and 2.2mm gap so just check that it will fit. When using a twin needle, there is a lot of heat created so it is always important so sew slowly, going too fast will cause the needles to break.

Also, you should check on the twin needle type, modern machines now using a twin which is slightly offset, the block colour is usually a dark brown/red colour. Your machine may have come with a twin needle in the needle selection so take a good look at it and see if it is an offset one, then make sure you buy replacements of the same type.

THe pin tucking foot allows you to keep rows of pintucks lined up, it will have grooves in the base that you can run the previously stitched pintuck through to keep even distances. Best on lightweight fabrics like cottons, lawns, batiste etc. You'd probably go for the narrow 2.2mm twin needle to get a nice fine tuck. I like to press each seam after stitching too to give a sharp tuck.

I have the Elna 6600 series Quilters Dream . I broke a needle because I had the incorrect foot on. When it "hit" the "Turn off for Safety Purposes" message came on.... then E2 . I...


Does your manual have a troble shooting section at the back and if so, what does it indicate for the E2 message?

Have you replaced the foot with the correct one and gone back to a straight stitch setting?

I'd turn it off, remove the needle plate and bobbin, clean everything out, check that there isn't a broken bit of needle anywhere, then reset everything up, turn it back on and try again with the standard foot.

How to attach a quilt guide


You have to unscrew the screw for the presser foot first. The walking foot will then fit. Use the same screw to attach the walking foot. Before you insert the screw, take the white handle on the walking foot and slide it on the screw arm for the needle. Now tighten the screw.

Quilting on Janome MC 4000


I have a MC4000 and a manual. To raise or drop the feed dog, remove the accessory box and feel at the back of the free arm there is a lever that will slide left or right to raise or lower the feed dog. I am not a quilter, but the manual says to use foot A (zigzag foot) and accessory L (quilter) which appears to be a guide. Cheers, Deb, Townsville, Australia
