Janome 9200D Overlocker Sewing Machine Review

When looking for professional results in the fastest and easiest way, the Janome 9200D overlocker sewing machine is the option to go for. The features of this overlocker are designed to offer users with the best possible user experience while still delivering the quality finish we desire in our clothes. What’s more, Janome 9200D is a tough little workhorse that sews fast and provides you with enough features to handle virtually any sewing project and fabric. The following review offers a detailed look at the value this overlocker adds to your world of sewing.

Easy Threading

Many good overlockers are designed in such a way that makes threading a not too complicated task even for a beginner. And just like most Janome overlockers, the 9200D Janome Serger offers easy threading through the use of color-coded guides and an easy threading system. The color-coded paths act as your very own permanent cheating sheet for threading an overlocker. Therefore, you should not experience any trouble threading, re-threading, or changing threads on the machine.

Differential Feed

Another common feature that this model shares with other Janome overlockers is a differential feed (adjustable from .05 to 2.25) that prevents puckering and stretching. With this differential feed by your side, you’ll be able to enjoy consistent results on all the fabrics you work on. In addition, you can also create ruffled or “lettuce edges” when sewing fabric edges on a fast feed ratio.

Multiple Hem Functions

Since access to hem function is one of the main reasons why most people buy overlockers, it only makes sense to ensure the machine you buy delivers quality hems. The Janome 9200D not only produces some of the best looking hems, it also provides you with 3 useable options through its built-in rolled, wide, and narrow hem functions. These hem functions add onto the machine’s versatility and also ensure you achieve quality stitches on all your projects. For instance, you can use the rolled hem function to make quick quality hems on children’s clothes and the narrow hem function to give lightweight fabrics a neat finish.

Upper Knife with Easy Release

Whether you want to try out decorative stitches or simply finish raw edges, the Janome 9200D allows you to do so easily through its upper knife. This upper knife can be de-activated so that it does not cut into your projects as you sew. With the knife out of the way, you get to enjoy a hassle-free sewing experience.

Adjustable Stitch Length

Need to make adjustments to suit your fabric? No worries as in addition to the differential feed, the Janome 9200D also has an adjustable cutting width of 2.0 to 5.7mm. This adjustment range provides enough room for the handling of most fabrics and comes in handy when applying creative overlock techniques.
