Finally ordered an even feed foot last night. Could not get locally (well could, but was not able to get 100% advice that the generic brand was ok for my machine). Hate not being anywhere near the sewing centre I am used to. There is a Janome dealer here ( a custom curtain store), but I am not sure what they stock, plus their location and hours are not the best.
I now have a growing list of feet and accessories I would like to get. My machine is still going strong thankfully, but I think in a year or so I would like to upgrade.
