If you are a beginner sewist or one with some experience, you may want a sewing machine that is simple to operate but is still full of valuable, helpful included features. The Janome HD3000 is one such machine that would probably fit all of your sewing needs.
The Janome HD3000 is solidly made from 1-piece aluminum casting which makes it strong and durable. There are 18 stitches included with this machine as well as an auto one-step buttonholer. Add to that a balance adjuster to get precise results even when sewing specialty fabrics.
This machine has a top load bobbin system that is jam-proof, eliminating all your thread and bobbin jam concerns. The 7-pc. feed dog gives you great control over many different types of fabric. There is also a drop-feed system for sewing free motion as well as attaching buttons.
The presser foot lifts up extra high, allowing you to sew thicker fabrics and layered fabrics in a breeze. There is also a 1-handed thread cutter and the presser feet snap on and off for ultimate convenience.
You can control the stitch length as well as the zig-zag stitch width . The free arm is removable and there is a storage box for accessories and small notions. The Janome HD3000 comes with a hard cover, 6 presser feet, a needle threader, a quilting bar, a needle set, seam ripper and more!
The bonus bundle for this machine includes a tote for your machine, a package of 10 bobbins, and a package of sewing needles, size 14. This is also an add-on to the generous Janome warranty of 5 years that is valid anywhere in the U.S.
The regular Janome warranty includes coverage for mechanical parts of 25 years, electrical parts for 5 years, and labor coverage of 1 year.

Upgraded from a Janome Magnolia to the HD 3000 and love it. sews like a dream - lots of accessories - VERY fast shipment and fast response to my questions. THX
I like it for heave duty
Surpassed my expectations.
Very disappointed that there was no needle up/donw switch. For a quilter it is an essential
I am so disappointed that there is no needle up/down feature. My last Janome had one and I thought it was marvelous. I just received my machine today, unpacked it, set it up and....disappointment that that feature is missing. If I didn't need a machine now to finish Christmas gifts, I would return it.
So far I love my machine and how it doesn’t struggle going through thick layers of fabric like binding a quilt.
I love my new machine. I haven't found anything it can't sew through yet. I am having a blast learning all of the stitches and using all of the presser feet.
Update: I have had the machine for a year now and it is still sewing strong. I have done quilts, bags, home décor etc. Just wanted to say you can't go wrong with this machine. I even bought a more expensive sewing/embroidery machine but this one is my favorite.
Granted, I only needed a new machine to be a backup to my Singer mechanical select-a-stitch. But this sews a bit faster and is quieter, so now it's my regular machine. It doesn't have a lot of bells and whistles, but that's fine with me.
- The needle stops as soon as you remove your foot from the pedal (as opposed to completing a stitch and raising to the up position) - it might take some getting used to if you've been sewing with most modern machines that raise the needle, but it's nice to not worry about extra stitches!
- Fairly quiet machine
- Strong feed dogs
- Comes with overlock foot!
- Mechanical stitch selection is clunky and I can never remember which way to turn the wheel
- No ability to shift the needle left (only right) to adjust stitch width
- Have to shift stitch selector after completion of each buttonhole (does not automatically reset)
- Reverse stitch button is not located in the usual place over near the needle, but is the large lever on the front - takes more getting used to
All in all, I'm pleased with it, along with all the extras that come with the package. It's a solid machine, easy set up/threading, and doesn't have all the bells and whistles of the computerized machines (which I didn't need/want). Would I buy it again though? Probably not. I like the electronic stitch selection of other machines better, as well as more familiar function placement.
Ordered and promptly received my new machine from SewVacDirect.
Just getting to know the machine. Too soon to form opinions about how I like it. A request for a review would be better received after a few months.
