​​​​The middle child in the Janome J3 family. The Janome J3-20 sewing machine can be overlooked but he’s quietly determined and he gets on with the job. He’s very reliable and he is handy to have around when you need him . He’s a 15 lb’er so he’s not a heavyweight but you’d also be mistaken if you took him for a lightweight.

Is the Janome J3-20 sewing machine easy to use?

In a word, yes.  Two dials are easily accessible on the front of the machine, one to select the stitch and the other to choose the stitch length.  Couldn’t be simpler.  There’s a nice chunky reverse lever to secure your stitches.  The J3-20 even has a needle threader to help you thread the needle.

What can I sew on this machine?

The Janome J3-20 would be ideal for dressmaking, or crafting.  It can handle jersey with the built-in stretch stitches and there’s even an option for a 1 step buttonhole.

Is this machine suitable for me?

If you’re looking for a machine to have in the house to do the odd repair job then the Janome J3-20 sewing machine would be ideal.  If you’re need a machine to be available when the creative urge strikes, then this machine would be great to have around.  He’s not too complicated to use and he’ll sit quietly waiting for you to put him to use.

Are there any accessories available for Janome J3-20 sewing machine?

Yes, the J3-20 takes Category A presser feet and there are lots to choose from.  Whether you want to add binding to a quilt, or insert an invisible zip to a dress, there’s a foot for all occasions.  You can see our selection here. If you need more bobbins then they’re available here.

Alan and Steve’s Guarantee to you

We are Janome Main Agents.
​​​​​​​Our guarantee covers your Janome for two years and includes parts and labour, but not transport. It may be an idea to retain the box and internal packaging – if you have space. In the unlikely event that you experience any problems with your machine, please phone us as ‘faults’ can often be rectified over the phone.
​​​​​​​Dad always used to say the workshop is the backbone of our business. From the 1970’s both Alan and Steve learned the trade by starting in the workshop. Since those early days, we have both attended many technical training courses across the UK, Germany and Switzerland.
