FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
JANOME AUSTRALIA WEDNESDAY JUNE 20, 2018: Janome, a leading innovator and global leader in sewing machines have launched the highly anticipated AirThread 2000D Professional overlocker.
Janome AirThread 2000D Professional unites ease-of-use with the specialised function of an advanced overlocker. The machine features a new threading system with a lever ratchet mechanism that uses a blast of air to blow the threads through the loopers. Combined with a built-in needle threader, AirThread 2000D Professional is our easiest overlocker to thread.
The user-friendly design also extends to the dials, easily accessed without a side cover. Users can easily adjust the cutting width to ensure stitches sit correctly on the edge of the fabric, even on curves whether the fabric is bulky or fine. The cleverly integrated stitch length and differential feed dials can be adjusted to the perfect setting for your fabric whether sewing stretch or lightweight fabrics.
Jojo Yamada, Managing Director, Janome Australia said, “We are confident that this new, top of the line, heavy duty overlocker will win the hearts of professional tailors and dedicated home sewists alike. The technology we use is robust and reliable; it will redefine the sewing experience for users, allowing them to be more creative, productive and precise.”
The AirThread 2000D Professional will be released on June 20, 2018 in Australia. Contact your local Janome retailer to learn more about the new product or to book a time to preview the machine in person. Visit www.janome.com.au for further information and to locate your local retailer.
The Janome 8002DX overlocker is a beautiful addition to your sewing room and will work side by side with your sewing machine.
For starters, 8002DX includes essential features for simple overlocking. The differential feed system of two feed dogs virtually eliminates puckered edges on woven fabrics and stretched edges on knits. Plus, its unique rolled hem conversion feature eliminates the need to change the needle plate, foot, or tension setting for rolled hemming.
We have also restructured the lower looper guides for easy access. Color-coded guides are easy to follow for 3 or 4 thread overlocking.
All of the features on this machine are specially designed to make this overlocker the easiest to use on the market today. Visit your local Janome sewing shop now and you will receive an additional 4 bonus feet consisting of Blind Stitch Foot, Gathering Attachment, Elastic Gathering Attachment and Cording Foot.

Quilting as a hobby is thriving. Whether it’s the joy of creating, celebrating tradition, for the love of fabric, or simply bestowing our projects onto others, once you get started it’s hard to look back. As we continue to churn out quilt tops, one fact becomes clear—we need to get them quilted!
Using a sewing machine to quilt small projects is easy and relaxing for the most part, but it can be a lengthy process moving a queen-size quilt through the machine. If you’re looking to step up your craft, it may be time to consider adding a long arm quilting machine to your studio or sewing space.
The Quilt Maker Pro 18″ Long Arm Quilter is the first-ever 18’’ long arm quilting machine to bear the distinctive Janome mark in Australia. With key features such as sturdy steel frame, 18” machine arm, speeds of up to 2,200 stitches per minute and numerous exclusive features, the Quilt Maker Pro 18 is the newest long arm quilting machine to tackle any project with speed and precision. You’ll comfortably be able to quilt heirlooms and gifts for family, friends, and charity for hours at a time.
• 18-inch arm – With this much room in the throat of the machine, plus 8.5 inches of distance between top and bottom, the Quilt Maker Pro 18 allows you to quilt large and bulky projects with plenty of room to spare. This also means for less movement of your quilt while you work your way through.
• Janome thread stand in a very convenient location at the front of your machine for the easiest threading possible. The machine can cater for two large vertical spools located at the front of the machine.
• Magnets on each side of front screen display for easy access to your most used tools. Store your scissors, pins, screwdriver or any metal tools on the magnets. The added bonus of the magnets is that they also have additional LED lighting strips underneath so you have plenty of lighting available to quilt until for hours.
• Digital tension control with numbers – Whether you’re quilting using a 40 weight thread or a 100 weight thread, you can easily alter your tension to suite the thread you are using. Simply adjust your tension dial (tighter or looser) and the colour touch screen displays a tension reference number.
