Everything you need to know about the Madam Sew Adjustable Guide Foot

If you need a precise line for a seam or a hem, the Adjustable Guide Foot is a great help. It’s ideal for quilting or any project that requires consistent sewn seams or topstitching. Use the adjustable plastic guide on the right to choose your distance from the edge or from a row of stitching.

This presser foot is a big help for beginners but also the more experienced seamstresses are very happy with this tool to give their projects a more professional look.

The Adjustable Guide Foot is a snap on foot with a plastic guide on the right and a distinctive click as you move in 1/16” increments. You can sew without measuring and marking. The plastic guide slides next to your fabric, in a crease, or on a row of stitching. It guides you from the top. You don’t have to peek underneath to look at the guides on your sewing plate or spend time drawing lines on the fabric.


Red marks on 3/8, 4/8, 5/8, 6/8 & 1 inch,

with small marks in between: 7/16, 9/16, 11/16, 13/16, 14/16, 15/16 & 17/16 inch

Width foot = 1¾ inch

We recommend starting with a dummy project to determine how to create the exact seam width you want!  


The Adjustable Guide Foot makes sewing straight lines a breeze, on hems, seams or quilts. You use this foot in a similar fashion as the ¼ quilting foot or the ruler foot but for various other, bigger widths. You can use both straight and decorative stitches with this foot and if you want you can slide off the plastic guide and just use the ruler.


• Decorative hems
• Straight seams and hems
• Quilting
• Accurate lines in general
• Topstitching even lines (on a strap of a bag or a brim of a hat)

Overall, this foot is a plus for anyone who struggles with keeping a perfect line without a distinct guide.

NOTE: For topstitching on thicker fabrics, slide off the plastic guide, as it may not glide over the fabric smoothly.
