The Janome 230DC sewing machine gives you computerised sewing with 30 of the most used pre-programmed stitches, including fully automatic buttonholes. The LCD display on the Janome 230DC makes it easy to see which stitch you've chosen as well as the stitch width and length, which are fully adjustable. A jam-proof, magnetic, top-loading, full rotary hook system eliminates the need for a removable bobbin case. The hook cover plate opens at the touch of a button, and the extra needle penetration power of the Janome XL601 lets you sew across heavier fabrics & for quilting multiple layers. Adjustable foot pressure means you can fine tune the feeding to suit your fabric. The extension table also detaches for free-arm sewing.
The Janome 230DC has 30 stitches, including 3 buttonholes which gives you the essential variety for your diverse sewing needs. Also includes all of the features allowing you to sew with precision and confidence.
Although it is a portable machine and quite light and easy to carry even to a quilting class, It will take heavier fabrics with ease, such as denim and leather. All buttonholes are sewn in one step at the touch of a button, you simply attach the buttonhole foot, pop your button in the back of the foot, pull a tab down and then put your foot on the pedal and watch it create the buttonhole thats perfect to the size of the button you've chosen! Also with this feature you can guarantee that every buttonhole will be accurate and the same as the last.
This machine also features a seven piece feed mechanism, a drop feed facility, automatic needle threader, a slide speed control and comes complete with aa electronic foot speed controller.
The Janome 230DC shares the same chassis as the Janome TXL607 which is the sewing machine we use in our sewing classes, the quality and value for money of the Janome 230DC, Janome DXL603, Janome QXL607 & Janome TXL607 is excellent.
