About this deal

Normally I like to let the machine feed the fabric but with heavy fabric with lots of fabric in layers and hanging off the front of the machine you will want to give it a little assist so this doesn't happen. I've been using this for a year now on costume construction and it is fabulous for everything from ballgowns to superhero costumes.

It has a limited number of stitches (18) and some folks wish there were more, although stitch quality is said to be very good.

The final decision to make me choose the HD-3000 over the HD-1000 was the stitch width, then I saw them in Black and it was a no brainier for me. But after making new cushions for my patio furniture, 3 pair of lounge pants, altering 2 pair of dress pants, making a formal prom dress, and now on my 4th set of spandex body suits. The control panel provides the optimum settings for stitch length, stitch width, thread tension and the correct presser foot for the selected stitch.Standard straight stich and zig-zag covers about 90% of my work and three or so others for the rest. Regarded as one of JANOME’s most trusted models , the internationally acclaimed Janome HD3000 offers power, precision, and ease of use. Made with single-cast aluminum, the HD5000 is a heavy-duty workhorse which displays remarkable durability and quiet operation over several hours of work, different textures and multiple layers of fabric. Sewing is a breeze with the quick view stitch chart showing your 18 stitches and an automatic buttonhole, and your accessories are very accessible thanks to the compact storage box.

It can handle more layers with some hand wheel assistance and I've gone through 10 layers but it absolutely needs some hand assist on that many layers. Holding the zipper’s teeth at just the right angle, you will get the professional finish to your zips that you deserve. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Owners state that the machine is capable of easily sewing through thick fabrics like denim and even leather. One-handed needle threader for easy threading and clear needle plate markings at common hem and seam allowance measurements.I'm not sure if I'm doing something wrong or something needs to be adjusted on it, but it doesn't work. Even if I get a more industrial/professional level machine in the future, I don't see myself getting rid of this machine.
