Dear Jan,
Recently, I was sewing very heavy cording for some slipcovers I was making. I tried to use my zipper foot. However, the zipper foot that comes with my machine was not narrow enough to get close to the cording. Any suggestions? -Anonymous

Dear Anonymous,
The zipper foot that comes with many Janome sewing machines was designed specifically for sewing on zippers. For making your own cording or piping, try the Narrow Base Zipper Foot. Changing the needle position on the Memory Craft will allow you to adjust the needle closer to the cording using the narrow base zipper foot.
