Ideal machine for home sewers looking for professional results

The Janome 1000CPX is best described as a high-speed, heavy duty coverstitch machine with a long arm that looks and operates like a traditional sewing machine. As a dedicated coverstitch machine, the CoverPro doesn’t cut materials as the hem folds or while performing decorative stitching.

You can choose between three stitch options using 1, 2 or 3 needles and 2, 3 or 4 threads to create a chain, cover and triple cover stitch respectively. There’s a free arm and extra large work area for more convenience while sewing.
