Janome XL601

£399.00 incl tax

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

It has 29 stitches including utility, blind hem stitch, stretch, overcasting for neatening raw edges, decorative stitches and 3 automatic one step buttonhole, (put the buttonhole in the back of the foot and it will do the exact size all one go). 

Stitch number, width and length are displayed on the LCD screen, which also displays the correct foot to use for the stitch selected. 

Stitches are easily selected and automatically set themselves to the right length and width for that stitch. These can be adjusted with the stitch length and width buttons. Maximum stitch width 7mm, maximum stitch length 5mm.

Securing stitches - choose between locking off which secures and knots on the spot, or the traditinal reverse.

Easy to thread, follow the numbers that guide you down to the needle and the built in needle threader.  

Drop in bobbin system - easy to thread as the bobbin case stays in the machine, it is also stronger, smoother and quieter.

Programable needle up / down - control when the needle stays in the fabric for pivoting. 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, so you can work at the speed you prefer.  Great for beginners, free motion work and children.

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

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

OTHER MACHINE FEATURES - Clip on clip feet, built in needle threader, drop in bobbin, push button reverse, drop feed mechanism (for free motion work).

Accessory tray slides off to reveal the free arm for sewing sleeves and trouser hems.

Comes with a manual, foot pedal and a soft cover.
