Janome CoverPro 2000 CPX Overlocker Review

While twin needles may do a passable job of hemming the edges of your finished fabrics, the quality of stitches would not be as high quality when compared to what a coverstitch machine can do. Therefore, if you want to obtain that neat and professional look of store-bought clothes, an coverstitch machine is the way to go – and what better option than the Janome CoverPro 2000CPX machine?

Considered one of the best coverstitch machines in the market, this unit was born from the marriage of a user-friendly home unit and a solid industrial-style cover hem machine. This unique combination has resulted in a top-of-the-line innovative unit, which despite being fast, heavy duty, and featuring some of the most advanced features in the market, has a simple operation that even the most amateur of sewers can master. This makes it a great machine for the serious sewer.

Threading Guide

Coverstitch machines are not as easy to thread as a regular sewing machine. However, this is one coverstitch machine downfall you’ll not have to worry about when using the Janome CoverPro 2000. The unit has an on-board, color-coded threading guide that allows for quick and error-free threading experiences. Whether you want to use 1 or 3 threads, the threading guide covers all possible threading scenarios in a detailed, easy-to-understand and follow manner that ensures you enjoy a simple threading time with every use.

Also included alongside the threading guide is a chart for stitch selection. This chart is a detailed reference that explains how to select the various in-built stitches as well as what tension, length, and width, settings work best for different fabrics.

Adjustable Stitch Pattern

Like all quality coverstitch machines, the CoverPro 2000 allows for more than one sewing option. With this machine, you can sew using 1, 2, or 3 needles to produce chain stitches, double and triple cover stitches, and other stitches. With this adjustability in sewing, you can use the appropriate stitches for different projects.

Large Workspace with Free Arm

Measuring 4 by 5.5 inches, the Janome CoverPro 2000 offers one of the largest workspaces. This generous workspace allows you to sew, hem, and seam in comfort even when dealing with those bigger projects.

This spacious workspace in turn is complemented by a large free-arm that helps to further ensure you have a great experience when using the machine. The free-arm’s design is engineered to offer plenty of space around it. Thanks to this design, you can finish off cuffs, sleeves, and other rounded areas with great ease and speed.

Seam Tightening System (STS)

Where other machines use the traditional dial for thread tension, the Janome CoverPro 2000 uses a spring-loaded looper that pulls the thread tails in opposing directions to prevent slacking. As a result, you get to enjoy a professional finish in the form of tight, flat stitches on the surface of all fabrics. The best part is that you get to choose just how tight you want the stitches to be since this machine’s unique STS can be adjusted over a good range. So, you can keep things loose when dealing with delicate and stretchy fabrics, and give tougher fabrics the tautness needed to achieve a professional finish and ensure stitches do not come out too soon.

Differential Feed

A differential feed is always a great tool to have in an overlocker or coverstitch machine as it adjusts a machine’s feed dogs making it easier to work on delicate fabrics without ruining them. The Janome CoverPro 2000 not only offers you this all-important feature but also gives you one with an adjustable feed ratio ranging from .05 to 2.25. With this range, you’ll not only be able to adequately deal with delicate fabrics but will also have exceptional control to handle just about any type of fabric. What’s more, the differential feed allows you to create whatever special effects you want on your projects.
