Janome HD5000 Black Edition Heavy Duty Sewing Machine with Bonus Quilt Kit, (HD5000-BE)
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 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.
