I don't think that there is a stitch regulator for Janome machines. I don't know if some other brand could be used, but I doubt it could.

If you're interested in doing free motion quilting, the convertible free motion feet set work really well. These together with the free motion bobbin case make it pretty easy to free motion. Janome now makes these for their high shank and low shank machines. If you click on Acessories on the Janome home page you'll see these items. With practice, it's pretty easy to keep your stitches a consistent size.

A stitch Regulator is an attachment or foot that keeps your stitches at a consistant speed no matter how slow or fast you go with your foot peddle.

Ah, sort of like cruise control. Thanks MOM, I knew someone on this forum would have the answer. I imagine this would be invaluable for FME.

Hello quilters. I am not one of you but the "stitch regulator" feature has been niggling at me.

If you disconnect the foot pedal, you can then sew using the button on the front of the machine (I usually only use this for embroidery or bobbin filling). Your speed can be pre-set to suit you and it will be consistent.

I realize that not all machines have this feature but........

Will this work as a stitch regulator?

It might! But you would have to have a free hand each time you wanted to stop the machine where as using the foot pedal both hands can be on the fabric which in free motion is usually the technique.

From what I have read, the biggest advantage to using a stitch regulator is to sew stitches of uniform length even at variable speeds.
