Janome CoverPro 2000CPX Sewing Machine
- Product Review (submitted on June 27, 2013):
I’ve been using this Janome for about half a year and I love it. It doesn’t have an overlocker, this is a professional grade machine that gets the job done smooth and flawless.
I’m a professional tailor and I found the additional overlocker to be more than necessary, plus I use a multitude of other attachments for it. But I can do great cover hem work with it, and this is what the 1000CPX is all about. So, to give you an example, say you want to do a regular T-shirt double stitch; with the 1000CPX you get those professional looking seams, that look great and that is consistent.
My other choice was a Brother 2340 Cover Stich machine but I ended up buying the Janome instead. In comparison, the 1000CPX has much better space management, with its long arm. The only underside of the Janome is that for any serious stitching work, you are sure to need the supplementary accessories, and they aren’t cheap.
I’d say that the Janome is worth it, but you have to be smart when buying the accessories, otherwise it will end up costing a lot more, making it ready for real work. Plus, it takes a while to learn to use it properly, and I suggest finding the tutorial DVD.
