Janome 900CPX Serger
In Store Only Machine ~ Please call for more info)
The cover stitch is what gives garments their professional looking finish. This stitch (also called a “cover hem”) was previously available only on sergers, and then, often only on the highest-end sergers. With the release of its CoverPro series, the Janome Sewing Machine Company has made this sophisticated finish available on a model with the power and control of an industrial specialty machine, but with the unique look and feel of a home sewing machine.
The CoverPro 900CPX is an economical model for the new year, offering a wide 5mm, double-needle cover stitch and a chain stitch. Because it only does these two types of stitches, it’s extremely fast – up to 1,000 stitches per minute – and easy to set up and use. It looks more like a regular sewing machine and offers familiar features that make it easier to use than a serger, such as a full-size sewing bed, free-arm sewing, vertical needle drop and a one-hand thread cutter.
The cover stitch is especially suited to stretchy fabrics like knits, as well as the popular new blends of traditional woven fabrics with a small percentage of stretch fiber added for extra flexibility. The CoverPro series machines are ideal for constructing projects from fashion tops to competition ice skating costumes.
The cover stitch is a serger-type stitch made without the knives (no fabric is cut), so it can be used not only to finish hems, necklines, collars and cuffs, but also for decorative effects in the middle of the fabric. Cover stitches can be made with two or three needles. For example, a double needle cover stitch will show two lines of straight stitching on the top of the fabric, with the two lines joined by a “looping” stitch on the bottom side. Because both sides of a cover stitch are finished, it looks great with decorative thread.
This distinctive machine is as powerful as it is useful. Its innovative design is based on the marriage of an industrial-style cover hem machine and a convenient home machine. The resulting union has produced a high-speed, long arm, heavy-duty cover hem machine that looks and operates like a sewing machine.
It’s the perfect companion machine for home dec, quilting and garment making.
