    • Due to the wide variety of stitches which the Janome HD3000 offers, you’ll never be short of creative possibilities.

 

  • Adjustable Pressure Dial: This feature allows you to adjust the pressure of your stitches. It is all controlled through a dial which can be found under the top cover of the sewing machine, directly above the needle. This allows you to use a lighter pressure on thinner materials and a heavier pressure on thicker materials. This is to ensure that your thinner materials are protected but you’re still able to stitch easily through thick materials without a lot of effort. 

  • Free Arm: The free arm feature is always something to look out for in a sewing machine. This feature is what allows you to accomplish quilting using your sewing machine. All you need to do to access the free arm is just to slide off the storage compartment. The free arm also allows you to sew pants legs and shirt sleeves a lot easier too, due to the gap under the machine that the free arm offers.

  • Automatic Bobbin Winding: Many people dread using sewing machines because winding the bobbin can be very challenging and infuriating when you cannot get it right. This feature eliminates that issue so that you can focus on just creating and sewing. The Janome HD3000 automatic bobbin winding feature automatically winds the bobbin for you. Which means you get to save time. It is also jam-proof so you don’t have to worry about things getting stuck. 

  • Reverse Stitch Lever: We all make mistakes when stitching with a sewing machine and it can get rather infuriating. This messes up with our creative process. However, with this feature, that problem is no longer a problem. This is because just one of pull of this lever will rewind the clock on all your stitching mistakes.
