Hi,

I know some of you have bought Westalee rulers and ruler foot.

Has anyone got one for the Janome MC 6600.

I measured my machine and thought I needed a high shank foot but the shop advises a low shank foot. I would appreciate advice from anyone who has fitted and used a foot on this Janome machine.

Thanks

I have been thinking about them too! I contacted them because I couldn't find my machine listed and they sent me the following info......


FOOT & TEMPLATE THICKNESS:

If you do not know what shank your machine is, all you need to do is lower your foot and then measure the height of the center of the hole for the screw from the needle plate.

I don't know if that helps! Best Rosemary

Sorry, cannot help with this Carol. I saw that Janome could be either high or low shank, very helpful, and my Horizon wasn't mentioned at all. If it was Cotton Patch I would have thought that they should know, otherwise contact Westalee direct. I am still trying to decide if I should splurge out on these!

Love the results Alison is achieving.

Thanks Rosemary and Margaret.

Have emailed Cottonpatch and they say I need a high shank for the Horizon and a low shank for the MC6600. I have followed their instructions for measuring and both my machines appear to be the same 1" thus needing a high shank so I am a little puzzled.

I loved Alison's work too and DH wanted to buy me the rulers and foot for my birthday early Jan, so I am trying to sort out ahead of time to give him correct info.

Hi Carol,

First thanks for the comments.

I have a Janome MC6600p, and I have a high shank foot.

It's important you get the correct foot, I'm not so sure it matters as much for the rulers. Which ones are you interested in?

Alison.

Hi Alison,

Many thanks for confirming foot size for me. I have PM'd you.
