Laurie from Tucson

I bought the OctiHoops about three years ago and thanks to them I now absolutely love free motion embroidery. I have an embroidery machine by I actually find that I am able to do a design faster by free motion then using my other machine plus I can do any design I want that can be drawn or downloaded from the computer, I recommend coloring pages there are so many free ones available. Yesterday at the quilt and craft fair I bought the creative feet. I watched your video first to make sure I understood how to use them and then experimented. I couldn't believe how much easier applique became thanks to the satin foot. No more struggling with curves and my project came out so pretty. The corded foot is so nice I used it to fix some loose trim on a pillow. Then I used the ribbon foot to add some color to the edging of a kitchen towel. I used a double needle and I was so pleased with the results. I can't praise this product enough I will highly recommend them to all my quilt and sewing friends. I also found that I was able to sew a button on with the satin foot. Set stitch width to 2 and the length to zero if you align the bar right in the middle between the holes it sews it on perfectly. Width may have to be adjusted depending on the size of the button. The foot holds the button down very nicely.


Your Satin Edge Foot Saved me!

I just had to tell you of my experience with a "Granny of the Bride" dress. It had to be long & I was about two inches too short. I decided to do the alteration myself. After three different tries with my machine feet & basting, I remembered the Satin Edge Foot. I was able to make the tiniest little hem that looked just like the original without basting or pinning--just turning it as I went.

Thank you so much for that foot. I saved me!


Extraordinary Service-They really do replace the feet

Thank you Clare Rowley for the most personal touch! She called me today (yes, Clare herself!!) about an issue with the sequins & ribbon foot, which was actually more due to the plastic peg/post on the foot than the screw or metal thread. They actually modified the post mold in 90's!! She offered to replace ALL of them at a real bargain price because I had bought them so long ago (early 90's) from Clotilde show /catalogue. Then, I explained why I don't use much sticky stuff in machine embroidery & applique b/c it.gums up needles & she explained how different her products were ..then I had to try some ..even bought some basting glue. Now, she is flying out tomorrow to do a show somewhere & took the time to call!!. How very extraordinary is this sort of service in these times Hope you have a great flight, Clare, & a most successful show. I look forward to all the goodies I bought, including the book on using the feet 88 ways!!!


Group Quilting!

Last year, I was working with a group of women to create a charity quilt. Of course, when a group of women piece a quilt top, it's critical that your 1/4" seams all match. I used a Satinedge foot to make sure I'd be consistent. Our quilt group leader commented that my 1/4" seams were perfect. I, of course, told everyone about the Satinedge foot!


The Old is New Again

Hi CLare, I bought my Janome 619 in 1978 and have used it constantly since. At first, as a single mum I needed to earn money to feed us as well as make everyday items and clothes for us. It has made my daughter's wedding dress ( and my own when I remarried ) but I have never really used it to it's full potential. It is serviced regularly and at times I get the "wouldn't you like to trade it in on a newer model?"from a salesperson (My mechanic always shakes his head and says 'No') Then I discovered your site and bought all three feet... WOW!! My Janome may not have all the new bells and whistles and self threading gadgets but it certainly has a totally new lease on life and I am having so much fun with all the amazing things I can now do with it. I am even using built in stitches that I have never tried in all these years. I just used your discount to buy the DVD to learn how to paint it and will give the case a make over. I highly recommend Your site and products to everyone. You have put the FUN back into sewing.Thank you so very much.


Packaging/Shipping

Received my parcel this morning - ordered the Octi hoops and the satinedge foot.
Very well packaged. Hope to try them out this weekend - will advise how that goes.

Thanks! Joan from Ancaster, ON CANADA


Wonderful customer service!

Clare is probably the most knowledgeable, patient, and kind sewing teacher I have ever come to know. I placed an order for several stabilizers and when I needed some questions answered she was more than happy to help me, never losing her patience. I have been sewing for a long time, but I am new to machine embroidery and stabilizing for which she is a wealth of knowledge. Her customer service is impeccable, when she says that she will return a call you can count on the fact that she will return the call and be willing to answer your question to help in anyway she can. Thank you very much Clare, a faithful customer! Nancy


I love gadgets

Hiya! I love sewing/quilting and I love gadgets. I have boxes full of feet that promise to make life easier, some work, others not so much. I bought the Satinedge foot years ago when life was a lot more hectic. It went into the box with the other gadgets and I never tried it out. While making quilts as Christmas gifts this year I was working on a drunkard's path and thought surely there is a foot to make these curves easier. I started searching online. I found one that claimed to make curves, simple and quick, I won't name it here. Before purchasing it, I looked through my box of feet to make sure I hadn't already bought it.:) I found the satinedge foot that I bought years ago and decided to try it out. Wow. It actually does make curves seem painless, simple and quick. Not only that, but my 1/4" seams are perfect now! I wish I had realized I had this foot years ago. Besides the walking foot and FM feet, it's the only one I use now.


Your blast from the Past YouTube Video

Clare, you gave me a big smile and laugh this Monday morning! From one woman to another, I must say you were very pretty back then, and more beautiful now!

I have two sets of all your feet, I carry one set while traveling to make certain I do not lose any one of them I purchased another set!

I also own all of your other products and enjoy each one. You're a great business woman and I would like to applaud you for all your accomplishments.

May you and your family have a very blessed Christmas season.

Keep those videos coming! I now I have a blue tooth speaker to aid my aging hearing, lol.

Satinedge foot

I was as the International Quilt show in Houston last week and saw Clare demonstrating the Satinedge foot. Of course I bought one and went home and thought, what did I buy? I thought it will take me a while to be able to sew with the foot like she did, well I have to say I have never sewn so straight and so even. My 1/4 inch seams went so smoothly. I did not have to concentrate to make my seams. If you don't have one of these foot you need one. This will probably be the only foot I use from now on. I can't wait to use it on curves.

I have to say most of the time these products aren't as easy as they demonstrate but THIS SATINEDGE FOOT IS FANTASTIC!!!!! I am going to purchase some of her other products as soon I can.

Thank you for creating such a great product...Sindy
