Product description

The Janome HC1200 Sewing Machine is the perfect way to get started in sewing! This easy-to-use sewing machine is ideal for beginners, as well as being a versatile choice for more experienced sewers too. It is great for hobby sewing, alterations and those who like to mend clothes.

The Janome machine is suitable for light to medium weight fabrics, making it ideal for general garment repair and design projects in your home. With 12 pre-set stitches plus left and centre needle positions, reverse stitch and an automatic four-step buttonhole, this accessible and adaptable machine allow you to master all of the basic stitching functions that you need.

The length of the pre-set stitches and the zigzag width is easy to adjust, and the machine also features an LED light to illuminate your work. For harder to reach designs like sleeves and trousers, as well as circular sewing, there is a free arm sewing system with a removable accessory box.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good solid, basic machine Bought as a replacement for my old basic Janome, it has a good selection of stretch stitches which suits me well. Have sewn a couple of projects on it so far and am happy with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use As a beginner sewer, this machine is very easy to use. I’ve never used a sewing machine before, and found the instructions very easy to follow! There’s not too many different stitches, so it’s not overwhelming. I’m very happy with my machine

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use for beginners Decided to learn to sew during lockdown. This was easy to set up and I haven't had any issues so far - runs well and is great quality.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good but some issues I bought this machine since the layout was similar to my previous one, it was simple and seemed able to do what I needed. The metal casing was a bonus since I know I have had issues with breaking plastic casing. It wasn't hard to set up. Unfortunately I immediately encountered a problem with the needle hitting the bobbin case - the needle stopped and it made a grinding noise so I quickly investigated. I tried taking the bobbin out, resetting the needle... everything I tried worked for a while but every now and again the needle catches the case. It's possible to sew things but it's frustrating on a new machine. I'm hoping this issue is a one off glitch with this machine, covered by warranty. But it may be a design issue, and I think it's worth checking.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very pleased with purchase. I have only had a little go on this so far, but having not used a sewing machine for about 10 years it was easy to set up following the videos on the website. There are plenty of ideas for beginners on the hobbycraft blog which I was unaware of before having a good gander for some tips etc.
