A very exciting new concept was launched recently in our JANOME CANADA world. We are very proud to say that we think this is a global first! We are wanting to reach the market of sewers out there who are not folk who go into one of our dealer’s stores for a number of reasons:

  1. Perhaps they live far away from cities & towns where we have a JANOME dealer?
  2. Perhaps they prefer to shop online?
  3. Perhaps they are beginner sewers who feel intimidated to go into a dealer’s store and appear “clueless”? Of course, we love to welcome new sewers but we are aware of the fact that some folk out there think they might be asking silly questions. And, of course, we’d like to reassure you that there is no such thing!

Whatever the reason, we are reaching out to folk who would like to shop ONLINE for a JANOME sewing machine or serger.

I thought it might be nice to have a little “cross pollination” or shared experience by referring you to our newly launched JANOME SHOP AT HOME website.



I think you will be rather interested to see what’s on offer there. The sewing machines and sergers sold on JANOME SHOP AT HOME  are not available in our dealer’s stores. These machines are  offered exclusively on the shop at home online website.  How it works is that you browse & surf the website & possibly drill down for tons of information which includes video’s & how-to instructions. When you have decided on a JUNO by JANOME machine that you would like to purchase, you enter your postal code and you will be offered one or more Canadian JANOME dealers where you might make your purchase. The entire transaction is done online with your credit card and the sewing machine is shipped to you a day or 2 later. The dealer you choose is the one who will ship the machine to you. Any queries you might have after you take delivery of your machine are either handled online by email or you may call the dealer from whom you purchased the machine.


I think you will be very pleasantly surprized by the level of online support that JANOME SHOP AT HOME  is offering customers.

    I have had a Janome 5500 since 1987. Loved it. Having some problems and need it serviced but wondering about buying a newer machine. I am excited about the Juno on SAH and am just wondering why they are so inexpensive? I was looking at machines today in a local dealer and they were in the thousands??

      Hi Jacquie- Shop at Home machines are designed to offer great value. While still built with Janome quality construction, they offer more modest features than some of our more expensive models. The size of the machine bed, number of stitches, etc. are all part of what goes into offering machines at different price levels. Your local dealer can help you with comparing and finding the machine to suit your needs and budget. Happy Sewing!

    Hi there! I am debating on whether or not to purchase the J1250 or a higher end model. I really like J1250 b/c it has some nice decorative stitch options and the on/off button which is a big plus for a new slow sewer like myself. It has all I need, and I think the more expensive models have things I don’t really need. My question is – where can I get accessory feet for it? AND is there a free motion foot available for it? I think in time I will want to do that style of quilting. I am also wondering why this machine is so light? Is it solid metal construction? It seems very light, I have no interest in moving it around, but I am worried I will bump it around on my table! Thank-you!!

      Hi Ruby
      You can buy accessories for your machine at the dealer you purchased it from. Contact them if you need to do phone order.
      All our Janome machine are all metal construction, with an inner shell made from cast aluminum.
      This solid construction is why Janome last, as the frame won’t warp or twist. And you won’t have to worry about it jumping around your table, just ensure the table is solid!
      Happy sewing, Linda P.

    how do the SAH machines compare to the janome machines available at regular dealers in terms of function and features?


    • lizafrica says:

      Hi Umilla,

      The SAH machines are actually purchased through our participating dealers so there really is no difference – they are just different models specific to JANOME SHOP AT HOME. All our sewing machines (Janome & SAH) are top quality. Pricing depends on the amount of functions and features on any particular model. If it has a lower price tag, that has NO bearing on the quality. It just means it might have fewer functions & features. I do believe the SAH website has quite a bit of detail on the various features on each machine model. You are also able to send in specific queries you might have.

      Happy shopping.

    I’ve purchased a Janome 30 limited addition, however cannot find this machine on any search, why is that? I am trying to find out types of bobbins, needles to use.


    • lizafrica says:

      Hi Theresa,
      You do not say where you live, nor whether it is a new or a pre-owned machine. Did you buy it from an authorized Janome dealer? I am unaware of this model here in Canada. However, I did look up the list we have of machine models and the only one I can find is a TB30. Says nothing about Special Edition so perhaps check the model number on your machine. Limited Editions are as the name suggests: a small quantity of machines made available for a limited time period. I highly doubt we have ever sold this particular model here in Canada. Perhaps it was available in another country for a limited time?
      I think the best is to go back to where you purchased the machine and ask them for more information about your machine. Your local Janome dealer is the one to best support you after you have made your machine purchase from them.
      Janome Canada.

    My name is Florinda Azevedo. Around ten years ago, I bought A sewing machine at this Chinese store here in Toronto; Its name is Janome, mod. US 2022, 60 HZ; and the no. 747024929. Today, I was cleaning it to try to get it perform better, but when I tried to put it to work, and it works fine but the teeth do not push the material, means that something must be broken and unless change the catcher tread, I think this is the name of the part doesn’t operate. My English is not too good to explain exactly what is the problem neither how to deal with it. I looked in the list available, but could not find what I was looking for.


    • lizafrica says:

      Hi Florinda,
      We suggest you return to the store where you purchased the machine. You mention you bought it 10 years ago. Have you had it serviced regularly? We highly recommend this – just the same as you would not ever consider driving your car for 10 years without taking it to the trained technicians for regular service. It might just be that all it needs is a good clean out and lubrication. If a repair is required, they will advise you.
      You may also look at the Dealer locator on our http://www.janome.ca website if you want to get the Toronto dealers contact information. Any one of them will be able to help you.
      Janome Canada.

    Went on the web site and looked at the surger. Is there a thread catcher tray for the front of the machine? Thanks
