If you’re looking for an inexpensive sewing machine with all the high-end features of a luxury machine, Janome’s 3160QDC-T is the machine for you. This lightweight, computerized machine features a superior fabric feeding system, five essential buttons, and 60 built-in stitches at an affordable price. Janome’s exclusive feeding system ensures even feeding on all fabric types and thicknesses. The five essential buttons are time-saving features which include start/stop, lock stitch, memorized needle up/down, thread trimming, and reverse. Another time-saving feature is the on-screen suggested presser foot. No need to refer to your instruction manual, simply select a stitch and the recommended presser foot will be displayed on the LCD screen. Beginners will appreciate the lightweight and portability of the machine as well as onboard accessory storage.
Superior Plus Feed System (SFS+):
Janome’s SFS+ has many advantages including a box rotation vs. elliptical, adjustable foot pressure, and a jam proof bobbin case. In addition to the seven-piece feed dog that makes up the superior feed system, the superior PLUS feed system moves in a box motion. Unlike the elliptical rotation of other feed dogs, a box rotation provides a more controlled feed.
60 Built-in Stitches:
Choose from 60 built-in utility, decorative, and buttonhole stitches. Janome’s 3160QDC-T comes equipped with all the stitches you need for quilting as well as general construction.
Included in the 60 built-in stitches are 6 different buttonhole styles which can be sewn out automatically with the press of a button. Simply place your button in the automatic buttonhole foot, and the 3160QDC-T will stitch a buttonhole to the precise measurements of your selected button.
Memorized Needle Up/Down Button:
Select this button to raise or lower the needle. The machine will remember the designated needle position between sewing segments. This feature prevents fabric movement when sewing curves, corners, and other projects that require frequent adjustment of the presser foot.
Lock Stitch Button:
Press this button at the beginning and end of each sewing segment to prevent your stitches from coming undone.
The Start/Stop button can be used in place of a foot control. Set the desired sewing speed using the speed control slider then press start. Press and hold the button while sewing to instantly slow the stitching. Press the button again to stop sewing.
Auto Thread Trimmer:
Save time and thread with this convenient feature. After sewing and lock stitching, press the thread trimmer button to trim both the bobbin and needle thread.
Remove the accessory compartment to access the free arm. This narrow arm is the perfect shape for hemming sleeves, pant legs, and other cylindrical crafts.
The removable sewing bed doubles as accessory storage space. Pack away bobbins, presser feet, seam rippers, and more for storage or travel.
Snap-On Presser Foot Compatible:
Easily switch between presser feet with the press of a button.
