The Sequins & Ribbon foot is known as the "couching foot" however, our Pearls N Piping foot also couches cording - be sure to check it out too! Clare Rowley invented the Sequins & Ribbon foot for a fashion designer the year pre-strung sequins released, it also guides ribbons, ric rac and braided trims and makes sewing elastic so simple even a 4 year old can sew it down; because you don't have to stretch the elastic from behind the foot! You can use this foot for all sizes of elastic and all types, even round with the Accessory Guide Set and Fold over elastic, aka: FOE.

If your machine has snap on feet:

Try to snap our foot onto your machine.
If it doesn't snap on to your machine's snap on adapter, you will remove your machine's adapter and place our adapter on the machine in it's place.
If your machine is a Bernina machine go to this page of our site to learn more about your machine's options.
If your machine has feet that screw on, you will select from one of our adapters (the one closest in length) and snap it on to our foot then screw it on just as you currently do.
If you have an industrial sewing machine, you will most likely use our HIGH (B) shank. Your machine must have the screw to attach the foot on to the machine on the left hand side.
We can modify by special order only our feet with your supplied shank for some Industrial sewing machines. Please email us to get the details.


With our shank on your Pfaff, you can share - or use the feet that are sold for Brother, Baby Lock, Elna, Riccar, White, Necchi, Nelco, Euro Pro, Janome and New Home! One set of our feet fit your machine and all that you see listed so you'll never need to buy theseever again...

Push down on the mechanism and release it. (It will slide up and out of the way.)
Loosen and remove your machine's snap on adapter. (screw is located on the left side of it.)
RE-START the screw that held it on to your machine.
Slide our (c) shank (smallest one) from inside the kit up and under the screw.
Tighten screw using a screw driver.
Slide the foot that you want to use under the slot on the snap on shank and push down on top of our (c) shank if the bar doesn't cause the foot to snap on.
To remove the foot, push down on the foot on one side and it will drop off.
Includes: 1 Sequins N Ribbon sewing machine presser foot with the 1/4 inch guide attached, 4 Snap-on Adapters, 1 Instruction booklet.

*Bernina machines that use long shank style feet will need a low shank adapter for the feet to attach to your machine.
