Features of the Janome MOD-50 Computerized Sewing Machine
As mentioned, the Janome MOD-50 Computerized Sewing Machine is a bundle of user-friendly features that still retain their advanced nature, making them great for both beginners as well as advanced users.
A Wide Range of Built-In Stitches
The MOD-5o comes with an amazing 50 built-in stitches, including basic and fashion, quilting, heirloom, home decor and 3 different one-step buttonholes that are automatically sized as per the button. Additionally, the stitch length and width are set by default when you choose a stitch, saving you time and resulting in precise stitches.
The MOD-5o comes with a highly durable heavy duty interior metal frame that doesn’t just ensure that the machine has a long life, but that also keeps the machine stable while stitching to ensure skip-free stitching. Additionally, the machine comes with a 25-year limited warranty that’s a good indicator of the machine’s life from the manufacturer’s point of view.
A Removable Free Arm
The machine’s removable storage compartment turns into the removable free arm, letting you conveniently stitch tricky circular parts such as collars, cuffs, hems, sleeves and the like.
7-Piece Feed Dog System with Drop Feed
To ensure free-motion quilting and sewing, the MOD-50 is equipped with the facility to lower the feed dogs using a lever. This feature is especially useful when stitching buttonholes, stippling or darning and even more so when using heavy fabrics.
Jam-Proof Bobbin System
The top drop-in jam-proof bobbin system not only ensures a smooth sewing journey but also reduces the amount of time spent in setting up your sewing. You can monitor the thread supply of the bobbin through the clear bobbin cover.
One-Hand Needle Threader
The one-hand needle threader is easy to use and convenient; you just have to follow the instructional diagrams printed on the machine to thread it. Then, let the built-in needle threader do its work, saving you a ton of time and effort.
