Finally, I'm working in my studio, doing some machine embroidery. I have the new Janome open toe darning foot installed on my machine. See darning foot part 3. Because it doesn't hop and it just glides, it is so much easier to free-motion embroider. I can't believe it.
Those of you that have Janome's check to see if this new 3 part darning foot is available for your model. Also owners of some Elna, Brother and Kenmore machines may be able to use it. It is available for high and low shank machines.
