I have a serger and sewing machine so I avoided getting a coverstitch machine for sometime. However, I could just not get the types of hems I wanted with my twin needle on the sewing machine. I finally bought this machine and am glad that I did. The hems come out beautifully and I find it easy to thread. As for ending the stitches, there are some good youtube videos out there that tell you how to do this. I would recommend watching those videos before attempting to use the machine because there are some differences even if you are an experienced seamstress like myself.
I received this machine about a year ago and have not had the time to use it. I finally had an opportunity this weekend to hem on stretch knit fabric. I was horrified with all of the skipped stitches and spent almost the whole weekend removing the stitches. This had me finally searching on the internet to find out what I was doing wrong. I found a few reviews here on Amazon that sounded like the same problems I was having. It turned out none of the recommendations that I read helped me, but in a last ditch effort, I re-read the manual. This is where I discovered that a loose leaf insert in the manual, clearly stated that when threading the looper, the looper thread tension slider has to be to the right. I re-threaded my machine and it solved my problem. I still had a few skipped stitches when I stitched over seams, but overall my stitches were very nice.
The price was right to add this much coveted toy to my sewing room. I have Janome 9000 & 10000 machines already so knew the brand was reliable. I have sewn for many decades, I was able to use it after acquainting myself with the instruction manual. Really helped that it came threaded. I have since changed colors with no problem. Tension is great and I love this machine. Havent used the bonus attachments yet, but will. No downs for me but I do miss the ability to backstitch (reverse) to lock off stitches rather than tie them off, but I'll muddle through (:-).
I was very reluctant to invest in a third machine, having bought a top of the line New Home sewing machine over a couple of decades ago (still works fabulous), and a pretty decent 4-thread serger. However, neither could achieve the professional hemmed finish I wanted, especially on jersey garments which I tend to favor these days but need to shorten (tees and maxi skirts). After lots of research I ended up choosing the Janome CoverPro 900CPX (essentially another New Home machine) for quality & price (I also know I don't need the third needle). I took it out of the box upon its arrival today and was hemming my awaiting garments within 20 minutes. Here's some notes on threading - very clean and easy - left and right needle threads pretty much go through the same guides and the only thread to go beneath is the looper - also quite easy. Threading this machine is 10x easier than threading my 4-thread serger. Then came the stitching test - no skipped stitches, went over my lumpy cross seams without a hitch. And the result was beautiful - and on my tees, the stretchiness is retained. I highly recommend this machine for anyone wanting a nice polished hem. I also think SewVacDirect is offering the best deal around.
I do alterations. I have a HD-3000 Janome & a cheap serger. There is always a feeling that I need something else, especially when I am working with knit clothing. I bought this Janome CoverPro 900CPX is just a trial decision. OH!, it came out super great, It is simple to operate, it does professional stitches, it also works so easy to hem sweaters. It is easy to sew a zipper on knit jacket with chain stitches. I also try chain stitches on work-pants, and the elastic foot to sew underwear. Awesome results. If you are doing alterations, it is a MUST have item. It will make your work so easy and your customers very happy.
