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, 2 packets of assorted Janome needles sized 11/14, and 5 years extended warranty that is valid nationwide. 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!

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.
I was looking for an easy to use but cost efficient serger for my first serger. I initially bought a Brother on Amazon. It was horrible, didn't work but for an inch of serging at a time before something would mess up. It broke after the third attempt to use it. This machine has not given me any trouble at all. It is a little complicated to thread the lower looper but once you figure out how to do it, it works great. I bought mine from a local sewing shop that gives a free lesson for your new machine so once they showed me how to thread the machine, I've been fine. This seems to be a newer model of the machine and there aren't many youtube video tutorials, etc for if you want assistance on how to do something specific. I have been able to figure it out through trial and error without a problem though.
