Just look at Janome Canada’s newest machine: The Canada 150 Limited Edition model

Canada 150 – M100 QDC (continued)

When people are wishing to buy a sewing machine, one of the first questions is this: ‘Is this model strong enough to sew in thick fabrics?’ The elegant outer appearance of the Janome machines hides a solid metal chassis. This is what gives our machines the robust interior and strength to sew just about anything! The Canada 150 – M100 QDC interior  looks like  this: 

Metal chassis

This internal strength is very unique and makes Janome what it is: affordable quality. Coated with a beautiful outer shell, here is a machine that is suitable for all types of sewing use.

150 – M100 QDC

Whether for garment construction, garment repairs & mending, home decoration, quilting, or for crafts, this machine is equipped with the features you will need need to perform these tasks.

The Canada 150 – M100 QDC  offers  100 utility, decorative and satin, stretch + quilting stitches. Here is the chart with all the pictograms of the stitches:

Charter of points

But … there is an apparent difference between a pictogram and a stitch. To visualize these stitches, why not sew them all? …… yes, when you get a sewing machine, you should take the time to study it – what a great way to practice??

Points 1

Utility Section – Button Section – Overlock Section – Applique Section – Satin Section

The feet used to sew these stitches are included with the machine:

  • All-purpose foot ‘A’
  • Satin Foot ‘F’
  • ‘R’ Buttonhole Foot
  • Invisible hem foot ‘G’
  • Overlock ‘C’

Points 2

Decorative Possibilities abound!  

The feet used to sew the stitches on this square are included with the machine:

  • Satin Foot ‘F’
  • Satin foot ‘F2’

All the stitches are adjustable in width and length which adds versatility  – as you can see on both samples. (to be continued… what will Celine show us next?)

    Can you help I have a janome 1step. for some reason the feed dogs are on the down position. I can’t get them to stay up. I found the lever but the feed dogs are still down. Is there a spring that jiggled loose?


    • lizafrica says:

      Hi Brenda,

      Did you actually start sewing yet? The feed dogs should come back up once you start sewing. If not, then you will need to take your machine to a Janome authorized Dealer/technician.

    Hi Liz!
    Reading through this article I saw – “But … there is an apparent difference between a pictogram and a stitch. To visualize these stitches, why not sew them all?”
    How true are these words!
    I remember my first seminar at Langley Vacuum & Sewing when you were demo’ing the S5 – the new machine i’d had for only five months and you showed an item with a beautiful monogram and said it was built in! In my head I gasped “Where”???
    That night I went home and scrolled through all the stitches and there it was – 1 inch by 1 inch! It looked nothing at all like the gorgeous item you’d passed around! Now when I’m designing an item I scroll through the machine to see what’s there FIRST before i spend hours on the internet embroidery sites looking for something!
    BTW – I have beautifully monogramed towels in my master bathroom now!


    • lizafrica says:

      Hi Kay,

      Thank you for sharing that. We are so glad you were inspired to stitch things out on your machine and have a whole lot of creative fun! Wish I could remember which sample I showed as you have intrigued me now!!



      • Kay Warcup says:

        Oops -sorry – I got the machine wrong – my bad! It was the Memory Craft 500e embroidery machine you were demoing and it was the monograms in the designs file. You showed many projects that night but if I remember right it was a purse/bag that you had monogrammed!

    I have just begun to learn about wing needles, also called hemstitch needles.  They produce incredible patterns using simple decorative stitches. It’s hard to find information on this but you might want to do an article on this.Betty


    • lizafrica says:

      Hi Betty,

      Thank you for your suggestion. We will see what we can do in the months ahead. Happy wing needle sewing! Very pretty results with this technique.

    I have two Janome machines. One of which is a Janome 9000, I bought this machine in `1992. What a work horse. Love my machine.

    Janome for me is the only machine. I have had other brands, but love Janome.
