You may not be aware of the fact that Janome has a wonderful line of sergers + coverhem machines. We thought a review of these would be a good place to start with the regular posts we have planned for the coming months of 2017 on Janome sergers, serger techniques, serger feet & accessories etc.
This 5 thread serger is our top of the line 3-in-1 serger. It does all the normal serging functions like 3, 4 and 5 thread seam finishing as well as rolled hems, flat lock, a fabulous blanket stitch edging, etc. It also has coverhem (2 thread and 3 thread as well as chain stitch. But wait….there’s more: it also has TOP COVER which simulates a double sided interlocking stitch so that you only need do 1 pass for the look of industrial style double coverhem stitching…….and you can achieve this at affordable Janome pricing! AND it has our wonderful automatic tension resetting system. Check out this link for more info.
This Janome 1100D is the little sister of our 1200D above. It has many of the same great features and functions: it is a 4 thread serger with easy stitch program selection and smooth, top quality operation. Check out this link for more information.
And here is a link to a bunch of video tutorials including an intro to the 1100D (above) + how to use many of the serger attachments.
The Janome 1110DX is a total “work – horse”. It has been around for many years….it is so good we can’t replace it with another serger. This is the one which is found in many schools as it is so solid, sturdy and reliable. Check out this link for more information.
This is one of our newer models: the Four DLM serger in our M series of machines. It is a 4 thread serger with lay-in tension threading. Check out this link for more info. Look for Four DLM under Products > Sergers
This is our famous Coverhem machine : the Janome Cover Pro 2000 CPX. It works and feels just like a regular sewing machine with the very wide throat for any & all sewing projects – no need to fiddle with trying to squeeze bulky projects through the tiny space on competitor serger models. SO easy to thread as there is only 1 looper: the chain stitch looper. This machine does 2 & 3 thread coverhem and chain stitch so is a simply fabulous addition to the sewing room as it is a dedicated coverhem machine – no more switching back & forth between regular serging and coverhem. Check this out for more information.
What serger do you have? Is it working for you? Or is it time to upgrade to a reliable and affordable Janome serger or coverhem machine? See your local Janome dealer today for a demonstration on the models listed above.

Just ordered the Juno s 1234 dx and the cover pro 2000 . Can’t wait to get them. Is the 1234 dx serger similar to the four DLM serger?
Yes, very similar. Do enjoy when they arrive. It will open up exciting new sewing possibilities for you. Could not dream of living without my serger an Cover pro!! I am actually serging today making rolled hems on table runenrs.
I really want to buy a serger. This is helpful for comparing some of the options!!
Glad you found it useful. Happy serger shopping!
Why is there no traveling case for the coverpro
Actually we do have bags/totes/travel cases for almost all of our machines – including the Janome Coverpro. Your local Janome dealer can discuss and show you what is available. We recommend the Tutto bags and our new Blue Fig bags (Sabrina and Tamara Kate designs) which we sell through our dealers. There is a blog post we published last month about these bags. Please check out this link. https://janomelife.wordpress.com/2016/12/20/is-santa-bringing-you-one-of-these-for-christmas/
Hope that answers your query.
