Creative Feet Sequins & Ribbon Presser Foot
When couching this foot guides the trim under the needle so you can focus on where you're going instead of staring at the needle, read below for more information.
The Creative Feet Sequins & Ribbon presser foot was made to make sewing down flat trims fast and easy, without having to constantly check your needle position.
How does it guide the trims?
The Sequins & Ribbon foot has a guide with a 1/4 inch opening, that keeps the trim positioned directly beneath the needle and holds down the trim so the needle won't lift it up as it exits the fabric. By adjusting the guide's position you're able to sew just about any flat trim, like ribbon, ricrac, decorative upholstery braids and also sew in elastic! When you use this without worry about the trim not being under your needle! In this video you will see it couching with eyelash yarn and allows the sewist, to let go completely of the trim. This is made possible because of the Accessory Guides we have as an optional purchase found here.
Can I use the Sequins & Ribbon foot to sew elastic?
YES! This foot holds the elastic for you so you don't have to pull from behind the foot as you stitch! It allows you to stretch the elastic towards you and it does the rest of the work! Even FOE (fold over elastic) is simple to sew and you can stitch it using just a straight stitch! Relax in knowing the elastic will be sewn in perfectly, without breaking needles and it's easy on your hands! Watch Clare Rowley, the Inventor of this foot on the PBS show Creative Living with Sheryl Borden sew baby clothing with it and you'll see just how easy it is!

Will it fit my machine?
Each of the Creative Feet fit all sewing machines that are capable of sewing a zig-zag stitch (virtually every machine). They simply snap on to most machines and using the adapters, included with the foot, they're able to fit all machines.
If you don't already have one, Bernina requires you to use their low shank or snap on adapter, for their machines, which we sell here or you can purchase one from your local dealer.
