The Janome 8002D Serger
If you are in the market for a new serger, Janome sergers should definitely be on your list for machines to consider. The Janome 8002D is one such machine that packs many serging features into its small, compact frame.
The Janome 8002D features a sturdy design that also allows for precise stitching so you can be sure to get a beautiful result from its 3 or 4 thread operation.
This great machine also offers a rolled hem feature that is built into the machine; you don’t even need to change your needle plate. It gives your projects a professional finish. All you need to do is slide your plate over into the R position for a rolled hem – and that’s it.
The Janome 8002D makes it easy to thread your machine with its easy-to-read threading chart that also comes color-coded for your convenience and ease. You don’t need to worry about noise either – this machine is almost whisper-quiet for a serger, even when sewing up to 1300 spm.
Cutting is made easier with an adjustable cutting width of 3.1 mm up to 7.3 mm and a retractable upper knife. You are also offered a dial for left/right needle thread tension and a dial for upper/lower thread tension.
For your convenience, the presser feet snap on and you are provided with a thread guide as well as a thread cutter.
Regularly included accessories with the Janome 8002D consist of a standard serger foot, an instructional video, an instruction book, a pack of serger needles, screwdrivers in both large and small sizes, tweezers, and foot control as well as the power cord.
Inclusions in the bonus bundle are: a Janome Needle Threader, and 2 packets of assorted Janome needles sized 11/14. The standard Janome 8002D warranty offers 5 years on mechanical parts for this machine, 5 years on its electrical parts, and 1 year for labor!

First serger ever purchased and used. I love how easy it is to use. Sturdy construction, you can tell it is built to last! Comes with a wonderful CD with instructions that are very descriptive. Highly recommend!
Love this machine!
It couldn't possibly get any easier than this machine as a first serger. It came pre- threaded and was ready to go, making it easy to start. I encourage any new user to watch the DVD that comes with it, it's quite helpful in rethreading and setting up the stitches.
Having never used a serger before, I bought this model somewhat "blind". I have a Janome sewing machine which is fantastic so I relied on the brand. Threading the lower looper is a bit of a challenge but I have conquered it. It's only shortcoming in my mind is that it doesn't do a cover stitch, which would really enhance it's usefulness.
What a great machine! Especially for the price. Everything you need to get started right out of the box. I am a first-time serger and cannot believe what a work-horse this machine is. Very happy with this purchase (just wish the threading instructions were a bit better!)
I'll edit this review as time goes on, but I ordered it after doing a bit of research and knowing I wanted something sturdy, simple, and straightforward. Janome seems to have gotten it right with this serger. It came threaded, but my toddler got a hold of it before I could ;|, and I had to re-thread it before using it. I had heard that a serger would be extremely difficult, and while initially appearing overwhelming... it was relatively simple and straightforward... getting easier after each thread. I looked at a youtube video and also the manual. Once threaded it worked perfectly!
This is my first serger and it does a good job! Easy to use and maintain. I would recommend this serger to friends.
