£399.00 incl tax

Janome XL601 £399.00 

The Janome XL601 is ideal for sewers who want the features of a electronic/computerised machine, but without lots and lots of stitches.

It has 29 stitches includes utility stitches, blind hem stitch for invisible hemming, stretch stitches and  overcasting for neatening raw edges, decorative stitches and 3 different automatic one step buttonhole (put the buttonhole in the back of the foot and it will do the exact size all one go). There is more emphasis on decorative and quilting stitches than on utility, making great for patchwork and quilters.

The stitch number, width and length are displayed on the LCD screen, which also displays the correct foot to use for the stitch selected, meaning you don't have to keep looking in the book.

Easy to thread, just follow the numbers which guide you down to the needle and the built in needle threader.  The drop in bobbin system makes it not only easy to thread, but is stronger, smoother and quieter.

A programable needle up / down function, means that you can control when the needle stays in the fabric for pivoting, or raised for removing fabric from the machine.  Can also be used to sew one stitch at a time, instead of turing the balance wheel.

A speed control that can overide the foot pedal, if you are heavy on the foot pedal and dont want to speed away, turn the speed control down to slow.  Also great for beginners, set the speed unitl you get used to using  the foot pedal.

Stop/start function, allows you to sew without using the foot control pedal, ideal for free motion embroidery, or if you are sewing for long periods.

The stitches are easily selected and set themselves to the right length and width for that stitch.  They can also adjust via the length and width buttons, and the locking off button means that the machine secures and knots on the spot. as well as having the choose of reversing to secure.

LED light gives a bright, clear, white light on to the sewing area.
