Is the Janome HD1000 Heavy Duty Black Edition right for my skill level?

We class the Janome HD1000 Heavy Duty Black Edition as “Beginner“, meaning that this machine has features that are suitable for a sewer working at a Beginner skill level. In general, machines that are classed as "Beginner" tend to have all of the features that we think a beginner will need to be able to learn how to sew. Beginner machines may also have some features that need to be manually adjusted, so that new sewers can learn how the machine works and learn how to handle their machine on different fabrics.

What size is the Janome HD1000 Heavy Duty Black Edition?

We class the Janome HD1000 as a Full-Size machine. Standard or full-size machines are the most versatile machine size as they work for a range of sewing applications. Full-size machines are usually wider than compact machines and this gives you slightly more space to manoeuvre the fabric around the needle area.

The width / length / height dimensions of the Janome HD1000 are 39.6cm x 16cm x 31.5cm. Or in inches 15.6” x 6.3” x 12.4“.

The Janome HD1000 weighs approximately 7.6kg or 16.8lb.

What are the basic sewing features on the Janome HD1000?

The Janome HD1000 has basic features such as a Free Arm with Removable Cover, Standard Foot Pedal and an Inbuilt light for safe and easy sewing. Reverse stitches, used for securing the thread in the fabric at the beginning and end of a stitching line, are created with a Reverse Lever.

What about threading and setting up the bobbin for the Janome HD1000?

When setting up and threading the sewing machine, the Janome HD1000 has a Bobbin that sits inside a bobbincase before being inserted into your machine. This machine appears to use bobbin class 15 so if you have these for another machine you can use these to check that they are interchangeable. Janome recommends you use the “J” style bobbin, although this may simply be a variation of the Class 15 bobbin.

There are also No Special Guides for Threading on this model and the needle threading is Automatic / Assisted. Sewers who struggle to see how to thread the needle may also benefit from the automatic needle threader on this model, which is a small inbuilt device that swings around and helps you to hook the thread through the eye of the needle.

What presser feet are compatible with the Janome HD1000 Heavy Duty Black Edition?

We believe the Janome HD1000 is compatible with presser feet that are Press On / Low Shank. If you already have presser feet that are compatible with this type of shank from a previous sewing machine, then in many cases you will be able to use the same presser feet on this model as well.

To be sure that presser feet can be used on different machines, or when buying new presser feet and other parts and accessories, you should always check that the parts are compatible with your specific machine number. So for this machine you will need parts and accessories compatible with make and model Janome HD1000.


What are the basic stitch types for the Janome HD1000 Heavy Duty Black Edition?

Stitch types on the Janome HD1000 include: Straight Stitch, Buttonhole, Decorative, Zigzag. The buttonhole process is a 4 Step Buttonhole. 4 step buttonholes are created in stages and are a more manual process than 1 step buttonholes. There are 1 buttonhole stitches.

Can I adjust the stitch width and length on the Janome HD1000?

On the Janome HD1000, the maximum stitch length is 4mm, and the maximum stitch width is 5mm. The stitch length on this model is adjusted with an Adjustable / Manual Control. When a machine has adjustable stitch length you can manually adjust the length of the stitches to create different effects and alter the appearance of the inbuilt stitches. The stitch width on this machine is adjusted with an Adjustable / Manual Control. Adjustable stitch width allows you to manually widen your stitches, which can be particularly helpful for customising zigzag stitches. Note that the adjustable stitch width control on this model appears to be fairly limited, and may not affect all of the inbuilt stitches. The needle positions on this model also appear to be limited and may only be controlled using the inbuilt stitch presets.

What fabrics can I sew with the Janome HD1000?

The Janome HD1000 is listed as being Suitable for a range of different fabric weights, from silk to denim. On many machines, these results will only be achieved with the correct needle and thread combination, so specialty needles and threads may need to be purchased separately and may not be supplied with your machine. You should consult the manual for your machine to ensure that the machine is set up correctly when sewing different fabrics, and always sew test samples to get the best possible stitch quality and to achieve perfectly balanced tension.

Can I adjust the thread tension and the presser foot pressure on the Janome HD1000?

To help you achieve the best possible stitch quality across different fabrics the Janome HD1000 adjusts the tension of the upper thread using an Adjustable / Manual Control. Adjustable upper thread tension gives you complete control over the tension of the upper thread and this tension can be manually adjusted to balance the tension of your stitches. This model appears to have no special features for presser foot adjustment, so if this feature is important to you, you may like to consider machines with manual / adjustable presser foot pressure.

Does the Janome HD1000 have any automated features?

This model has no special automated controls. For example, this model does not have automated controls for the needle stop position, automated back tacks or automated thread trimming. If automated controls are important to you then you might like to consider a machine classed as Competent, Advanced or Professional.

What is the voltage of the Janome HD1000?

With a voltage of 110v we believe this machine is suitable to use in the USA, but it is always best to consult the information provided by the manufacturer (Janome) or consult a sewing machine distributor prior to purchase to ensure that the machine will work in your region if you are unsure. Most manufacturers do not recommend using adaptors to convert the voltage of your machine for safety reasons.

Where can I get a copy of the manual for the Janome HD1000 Heavy Duty?

Whether you are having trouble threading your machine, can’t work out how to change the stitch settings or just want to make sure you’re getting the most out of your sewing machine it is always best to have a copy of the manual on hand.
