Easy Convenience Features
Advanced Start / Stop Button
The start/stop button allows the machine to sew without using the foot pedal. This feature is great for sewing long seams, or for quick mending. This button also allows for speed control. At the start of your seam, simply press and hold to slowly accelerate to your set speed. At the end, press and hold to slow down, and release the button to stop sewing. This new Janome exclusive feature allows great control at the start and end of seams.
Automatic Thread Cutter
Thread is cut at the push of a button. No reaching for scissors, or wrapping thin threads around back to a blade. The innovative thread cutter leaves short thread tails, which saves the most amount of thread possible when cutting.
Easy Reverse Button
The Reverse button allows you to easily backstitch for locking seams. With the tip of your finger, this conveniently located button can also be used to stop a stitch pattern before its completion.
The locking stitch button ties off the end of the thread. No need to backstitch to lock a seam. This is ideal for securing seams on delicate fabrics, or when using decorative stitches.
Memorized Needle Up/Down
Push the button to set the needle to stop in the up or down position. Set the needle in the down position for easy pivoting on corners and for seamless free motion embroidery. Set the needle to the up position for easy fabric removal.
