About this deal

It's the kind of thing that your average home sewing machine would struggle with - but the HD 3000 makes it easy. Hopefully, the manufacturer takes note of this and incorporates an upgraded system on future iterations of the HD3000. If you're working at a bar type height, or a table that is slightly taller than normal, the cord won’t be long enough.

Second update: that seems to be due to a newer model issue, so getting and older version secondhand seems like it would work. But frankly, it’s a little inconvenient because after each buttonhole has been stitched, the sensor needs to be reset. All settings are easily accessible and provide precise control to the operator, which is exactly what you want from a sewing machine. I guess what I take exception to is the above comment that the " Juki TI-2000qi is the best sewing machine".so I went with Janome HD1800 (which is a European equivalent to Janome HD3000 with nearly all features identical, just another name - see detailed comparison and review below. The 525S also has an auto-declutch bobbin winder and is supplied with a two speed foot controller and a hard cover. One thing is you have to be very careful when sewing multiple thick layers that the presser foot doesn't overcome the load spring holding it down.

HD3000 is easy to operate, and it can be used for the variety of sewing projects to produce professional quality results. Even if I get a more industrial/professional level machine in the future, I don't see myself getting rid of this machine. I have started making bags and it struggles with top stitching – I am only able to use quilting cotton otherwise it struggles with all the layers. to start - my area of interest is mainly computer based (lighting programming) so please do correct me if i muck up any terminology. I’ve managed fairly thick leather with my current very much shelvable computerized machine (This) — I’m actually looking for something less computerized, without all the stitches or the buttonhole function, but with roughly the same internals.The reverse stitch seems to balk when pressed, sometimes it catches right away other times it lags and you have to stop sewing altogether to get reverse to operate. While it isn't a machine for dedicated professional or for heavy industrial use, I think it could definitely be used as a great starter machine while you grow your business and work up to and afford a more professional machine. This machine is best used by families who have multiple people who might want to use it at various times. I'm guessing she'd like the 2011 best not so much for the broader assortment of dec stitches but for the needle up/down and more buttonhole choices.

I like the idea of mechanical over computerized because that just sounds more fixable, but it wasn't the computer that went out on her singer.

My only current concern with that option is the few conflicting reviews regarding it not having its theoretical specifications, but if those end up not being the case than it seems like what I’m looking for. Even if you thread it properly, the thread can pop out of the slot, but this generally only happens with very stiff inflexible threads.Heavy duty aluminum body and 18 stitches, including a one-step buttonhole give you the tools you need to handle any kind of sewing project.

It came with many attachments I am happy with my purchase I feel I made a great choice and bought a great machine. Many people who have used both but learned to sew on a mechanical machine, prefer the simplicity of the older style.

Having a Janome HD3000 and a Juki clone and for leather work I’d take a walking foot machine with a servo motor everyday of the week and twice on Sunday. You can quickly switch from a straight stitch to a blind him without needing any screwdriver or special tool. The light provided is dim, making it difficult to use the machine in the evening, without additional lighting sources pointed directly at the worktable. If you can stretch the budget it’s well worth purchasing a model with a top loading jam proof bobbin mechanism such as the Janome Model 525S, the machine used recently on TV. I have just purchased online from Hobbycraft the 4400 as I am a relative beginner (did some sewing in my late teens but now 74).
