If you've been looking in the Economy price range for a sewing machine, but want more than just bare-bones features, you're going to want to look at the new Janome DC1050 sewing machine.
It's a full-size, computerized machine with a powerful DC motor, 50 stitches, including three one-step buttonholes, and a maximum speed of 820 stitches per minute.
Your first concern should always be stitch quality. And the DC1050 delivers this with Janome's 7-piece feed dog system below the needle and computerized precision above. Combined with strong needle penetration, it feeds all weights of fabric smoothly, giving you excellent results on home décor, garments and quilting projects.
The 50 built-in stitches include utility and basic construction stitches like straight, zig zag, blind hem, and overcasting, as well as appliqué, blanket and heirloom stitches. There's also a locking stitch you can activate with a button.
Navigation between stitches and adjusting stitch settings is easily accomplished with the backlit LCD display. For quick reference, all 50 stitches are listed on the front of the machine.
The DC1050 includes lots of features you wouldn't expect on a budget-conscious machine: a one-hand needle threader, a memorized needle up/down function, and a Start/Stop button, which allows you to sew long seams without using the foot control.
See our web site for more information on the DC1050 sewing machine, including complete specifications and an instruction manual.
