  • How to wind Bobbin Janome?

Winding a bobbin is an easy task, yet it is an important element in creating good stitch quality. All top loading Janome sewing machines use the same clear plastic bobbins for proper stitching. Metal bobbins interfere with the magnetic hook system. Good quality thread is also a must!

  1. To initiate the process, insert the thread through the hole in the bobbin, from the inside to the outside.
  2. Put the bobbin on the bobbin winder spindle, and push it to the right.
  3. Set the motor speed to medium so that the bobbin thread will wind evenly; and avoid stretching which often occurs when wound at the fastest speed.
  4. With the free end of the thread held in your hand, depress the foot control (or touch the start button)
  5. When the machine has made a few turns, stop and cut the thread tail close to the hole in the bobbin.
  6. Restart winding, and when bobbin is fully wound, it will stop automatically. It is important that the thread is wound evenly on the bobbin, and adjustment should be made if the winding is not cylindrical, or if the bobbin either overfills or underfills.

  • Can you overlock on Janome Sewing Machine?

You can use attachments such as Janome overlock / overcast / overedge foot with an overcasting stitch to allow thread to wrap around the edge of the fabric to prevent fraying. The foot guides the fabric and keeps the edges flat by compensating for the lack of friction when the needle makes the right-most stitch.
