Did you know that there is a good deal of information out there just waiting for you to find? Yes, I guess you just need to know where to look. I have said many times that google is a very wonderful thing. But I will point you in the right direction: Janome America does many short video’s on various machines and the accessories for them. The best is to go to www.janome.com and search for accessory video’s in the search box. That will get you to them real quick.
Today we are focussing on sergers so here is the link for where to find serger video’s. Now be aware that all 4 video’s are done using the JANOME PRO4DX serger but as this is a regular 4 thread serger, even if your serger model is a different number, I am sure you will be able to benefit from these video’s
- One video shows how to set up your serger for rolled hem
- The other 3 video’s are showing how to use the Cording feet (optional accessories). These cording feet are available for most of our serger models. Please ask your local JANOME Dealer for information about the accessory that you would require for your particular JANOME SERGER.
The Janome 1100D and PROD4DX are workhorses in the serging dept! Meet 4 of our very capable Janome Sergers: 1100D; PRO4DX; XG34D & 4DLG
A serger is a very handy tool for both sewing and crafting projects. Sergers hold a bit of mystique for many sewists, because the machines can use up to 4 threads instead of 2, and they have knives that cut your fabric while you’re stitching.
But the truth is, Janome sergers are super easy to use! You can quickly familiarize yourself with their set-up, as well as those extra needles and cutting knives, which are what allow you to trim and finish seams in a single step–with truly professional results.
Janome sergers also contain a wide range of options for stitch customization, giving you far more functionality than just creating a clean finish on the raw edges of seams. These sergers are great for working with nearly any texture or loft of fabric. Constructing quilts, garments, home décor items and more is easy, and you can use them on a wide variety of fabrics, including wool, fleece, velvet, chiffon, silk, cotton or fur.
The PRO4DX makes serger sewing easy! Incorporating the differential feed system of two feed dogs, puckered edges on woven fabrics and stretched edges on knits are virtually eliminated. The rolled hem conversion feature eliminates the need to change the needle plate, foot, or tension setting for rolled hemming. And the color-coded guides are easy to follow for 2, 3, or 4 thread serging.
