The Stitch in the Ditch Foot is one of the most popular and widely-used sewing machine feet available. It is also referred to as the Edge Joining Foot or the Edge Foot. This presser foot makes everything from edge stitching, to stitch in the ditch, to heirloom sewing easier. The little metal guide or blade in the center of the foot makes sure you stay in that crease or right on the edge of a pattern piece or binding.


Use this universal snap-on presser foot to: 

  • accurately stitch together two pieces of fabric

  • join lace 

  • sew in the ditch, run the blade along the seam line and you automatically get perfect 'stitch in the ditch' centered top stitching

  • topstitch on the edge or edgestitch fast and accurately

  • give your garment a professional look with perfect understitching that keeps the facing or lining from rolling toward the outside

  • turn perfect corners using the markings on the side of the presser foot


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


The Stitch in the Ditch foot is also included in our top-of-the-line 32 pcs Presser Foot Set.


MATERIAL  Zinc Alloy

Stitch in the Ditch foot

This foot is a gem!!! Wasn't quite sure about it but I never can keep it even when I stitch in the ditch and this foot does it---really well!!! I was really impressed.

Miki Hajvert
Stitch in the Ditch Presser Foot

I used the stitch in the ditch presser foot to put binding on a quilt. Worked out fantastic. It did get stuck on fabric a few time but I took my time with it.

Linda Lemasters
