Perhaps you’ve seen the recent full page advertisement in the Country Register newspaper, or have seen posts on various social media from Janome’s around the world, but now we can share the exciting news HERE that the NEW Janome CoverPro 3000 Professional is making it’s official debut in Canada! YAY!!!
Our Janome Canada dealers were recently sent all the info, so be sure to contact them for more information and to order. Don’t say we didn’t warn you! (wink, wink! lol!) Use the Find a Dealer tab on our Janome.CA website to locate a Janome dealer near you.
This is definitely the machine we’ve been waiting for! Garment sewists especially will rejoice that we can now make a professional Top Cover stitch quickly and easily in ONE step, which is just one of the fabulous new features of the Janome CoverPro 3000 Professional.
The NEW Janome CoverPro 3000 Professional is similar to the previous coverhem models; the Janome CoverPro1000CPX and Janome CoverPro 2000CPX, but you’ll see right away how it differs as it has 1 extra spool pin across the back. That extra spool pin is for the thread used with the extra-special, retractable and Janome patented Top Cover spreader. In fact, there’s quite a few new, patented features debuting with this machine!
The built-in needle threader of the Janome AT2000D air-thread serger has been a HUGE hit, so Janome developed an even more slick needle threader for the Janome CoverPro 3000 Professional. YES, a built-in needle threader for ALL 3 Needles!
A new and improved feeding system adds to the versatile feeding power of this machine. Knits or wovens; lightweight to heavier, thicker layers, the Janome CoverPro 3000 Professional can handle it all thanks to the patented feed dogs which are higher, wider-spaced, and cut differently than in previous machines. The unique configuration allows for more contact with the fabric, so the feeding is consistent no matter the fabric, or the stitch being used.
If needed, it’s easy to adjust the machine for different thicknesses and weights of fabric, often with just a flick of a switch, specifically the Fine/Standard (STD) lever. For fine, delicate fabrics switching to the Fine setting adjusts the take up lever’s timing and softens the needle thread tension, yet maintains the looper tension, so puckering or tunneling between the needles will be eliminated. The stitching remains flat, which is just what we want and would expect from a professional coverhem or top-cover finish. Regular thread tension adjustments can also be made easily with the lay-in tension control dials for each of the 5 threads. The Instruction Manual gives settings suggestions for various fabrics and techniques.
Improved lighting is always at the top of the list when developing a new machine, and once again Janome delivers with the addition a retractable overhead light, similar to that of the Janome MC 9450. It’s great when a feature which works so well on one machine can be brought over to work equally well on another.
While the Janome Clear View Foot is not a new foot for CoverPro machines, it is INCLUDED with the NEW Janome CoverPro 3000 Professional! This foot is especially helpful to use when hemming in the round; lining up the end of a row of stitching with the beginning. For all other Janome CoverPro machines, it’s an optional accessory, available from your Janome dealer.
For those of you already familiar with our previous Janome CoverPro models, you’ll be thrilled that the NEW Janome CoverPro 3000 Professional has the same easy thread guides and quick release of the looper, which makes threading a breeze! While Janome is always trying to come up with new things, they also realize what works well, so it’s like, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it! lol!
Another feature of all Janome CoverPro machines repeated on this new machine is the free-arm capability, though the extension table of the NEW Janome CoverPro 3000 Professional has a notch to place your finger at the side of the table, which makes it even faster and easier to remove to convert to the free-arm. Janome really does try to think of everything!
