As with any task, having a dedicated tool; piece of equipment or machine at the ready definitely speeds up your time and efficiency – and your overall enjoyment of the project.
In the kitchen, you might have a food processor or electric mixer to make meal preparation faster and easier. In the sewing room, one of our Janome CoverPro machines can be your “go-to” dedicated machine for quick and easy hemming – with professional results!
Janome has 3 CoverPro machines from which to choose; Janome CoverPro 900CPX; Janome CoverPro 1000CPX and Janome CoverPro 2000CPX. Use the “Model Comparison” chart on our Janome Canada website to see the differences between each of these machines.
The Janome CoverPro 900CPX has 2 needles, for example, while the Janome CoverPro 1000CPX and Janome CoverPro 2000CPX have 3 needles, but each model provides the same ease of use and professional hemming results.
It’s the perfect machine to use for quick and easy hems, like on the pair of pajamas pants pictured below. My partner, Joe, is 5’5″, so I usually have to hem most of his pants and shirts, and the Janome CoverPro 1000CPX comes to my rescue!
Both Joe and I dislike the ribbed cuff on the bottom of some pajamas pants and track pants, so it is super easy to just cut it off and toss away (although, I of course, have to save it in case I need it for another project, lol!)
I folded up a 1″ hem and, using the free-arm available on ALL Janome CoverPro machines, I had the hems done in a flash! The machine stitches to secure the hem AND finishes off the raw edge in ONE Step! Brilliant! I demoed this on the Janome HQ Instagram Live series “Janome’s Magical Machine Mystery Tour“.

To add to the fun, there are many accessories, like an extension table or several sizes of Tape Binders, for example, to help you get the most from your Janome CoverPro machine. Whatever the model, accessories are there to help you achieve professional results more quickly and easily.

The bonus is that there’s SEW much more you can do with your Janome CoverPro machine, like to embellish fabric using decorative threads to make an Infinity Scarf, which is one of the online classes offered through the Janome Sewing and Learning Centre.
