Question about Janome Sewing Machines

1 Answer

We are considering either an new Janome DC2010 or Magnolia (probably the 8077 sold by Hancock Fabrics). Other than the stitche and button hole selection, the main difference appears to be the manual vs the automatic thread tension. (The DC 2010 has the automatic.) This appears to be a major difference. What is your opinion.

I have a 2010 and like it even more than my Huskarvana Viking that I paid almost 5k for. It is portable, easy to use and sews like a gem.

My stitch finger and needle plate have to be replaced as often as my needles on 1034 D why are they made of cheap materials and cost so much? Is there a way to quickfix temporarily?

There could be something that is out of time or bent on your machine that is causing these parts to be damaged or broken. Another contributing factor may be the fabric that you are sewing, ie heavy fabrics like denim can very easily damage less expensive machines. Perhaps taking it for service and asking the technician for advice will help resolve the issue.

Unfortunately, machines that are marketed and sold at Walmart, JoAnn's, etc. are not the best quality machines available, especially if they are used often and on heavy fabrics. A lot of the lower priced machines currently sold are made with the premise that it is a throw-away product--once it's broken, throw it away and buy a new one, much like a lot of computers, printers, etc.

If you really want a machine that will last, save up your dollars and buy a higher end model, perhaps in a Bernina, Babylock, Janome, Juki, etc., but you could be looking at spending $600 to $1500 (depending on options). However, if you are spending a lot on repair and parts, it may be worthwhile to consider.

Stitch problems

You can adjust the pressure foot(not footpedal)which puts the prsure on the foot by the needle. Also try altering the stitch length. If the stitches are skipping on silky fabric or knitted fabrics try using tissue and sewing onto that directly then tearing it off afterwards.
