The Stitch-in-the-ditch foot is one of the most popular and widely-used feet available for your sewing machine. This foot makes everything from edge stitching, to stitch-in-the-ditch, to heirloom sewing easier.

  • Join fabric or lace: used to accurately stitch together two pieces of fabric or lace
  • Stitch-in-the-Ditch: Run the blade along the seam line and you automatically get perfect 'stitch in the ditch' centered top stitching
  • Topstitch/Edgestitch: Designed so you can topstitch or edgestitch like a pro (fast and accurate)
  • Understitch: give your garment a professional look with perfect understitching that keeps the facing or lining from rolling toward the outside
  • Applique: get that zig-zag stitch at the perfect spot to secure your applique beautifully
  • Finish a seam with double top-stitching, as you see in ready-to-wear garments by using a double needle
  • Markings on the side help you turn perfect corners

You can do so much with this foot, you will be amazed by the possibilities.

This thing makes it easier for a beginner like me

I am new to quilting, learned to sew in home ec a loooooong time ago. This foot makes it so much easier for my little home machine to quilt my beginner projects! Love all my Madam Sew feet!

Stitch Guide Flexes Sideways & Doesn't Ride Over Seams

I was really excited to try this foot today on a small quilt but was immediately disappointed in how it performed. My quilt has low loft batting but the guide kept flexing sideways and getting out of the "ditch". At the juncture with the next block, the guide stuck on the seam and wouldn't go over it into the next block. The stitches wandered out of the ditch when the guide flexed and then got very small when the guide got stuck at the seam of the next block. I then had to rip out all those stitches and use a different foot.
Maybe it will work as a joining foot or an edge guide, but it didn't work for me at all as a quilting foot.

The things I bought were well worth having, and Madam Sew’s received my order, filled it quickly, and got it to me in record time. Very pleased with Madam Sew.
