The Janome HD9 is a straight stitch sewing machine with a stout metal body. It offers high speed sewing with a wide sewing area. And all this is teamed with an industrial style raceway, push-button scissors and a speed control. The busy homeworker couldn’t really ask for more.

The Janome HD9 is also an excellent choice for the quilter. Most of you guys have more than one sewing machine. One for this job, and one for another job etc. etc. So the HD9 is one for your consideration. Use it as a workhorse for all your long length quilting work.

The HD9 will make short work of denim, leather and vinyl. It will also sew delicates, dance costumes and prom dresses. And if you have a mountain of trousers to take up, and dresses to let out, the Janome HD9 is a good choice.

Handy Features

  • Good size Reverse Lever
  • Needle Up/Down button
  • Speed Control
  • Scissors
  • Knee lift

The size and position of the reverse lever is handy when you need to back-tack. The needle up/down button speeds up your work. The speed control helps you to be far more accurate over thick seams and corners. And the scissor button also helps to speed up your work. The knee lift is so handy when your hands are full – of leather or bags etc. Just press it with your knee to raise the presser foot.

Use the Janome HD9 for sewing leather or bags

Many people ask for a machine to sew leather or bags. The Janome HD9 is a perfect choice. Especially if you have plans to sew them regularly. It has the power and the precision to sew leather, vinyl, denim, canvas and PVC. In fact it will sew through practically any thick fabric. What’s more, it will do it all day long.

Use Your Loaf

Smaller, cheaper machines will sort of do the job. But not for long. They will either conk out pretty quick. Or require repairs every month or two. So in the end you’ll end up paying more than the cost off the HD9. Use your loaf and buy the HD9. You know it makes sense. Pick up the blower and order one from us over the phone – 0161 707 7786. Or, if you’re the trendy type – buy it here from our website.
