Let me start by saying that I have two other Janome machines ( a serger and a straight stitch) and I love them both and sew with them on a daily basis as I sew children's clothing for a living. I was able to figure out how to use both within minutes and have never had trouble with either. Which is why when looking for a cover hem I chose a Janome. I purchased the 1000CPX a few years ago and have had nothing but trouble. Every few months I tell myself I'm going to try again and I spend hours trying to get my hems right. I sew mostly with knits and I've tried everything but I get nothing but skipped and very messy stitches. I've tried using the suggested needles, adjusting presser foot, tension, you name it. And I can't seem to find any you tube videos that address these issues. I'm really kicking myself for not returning the machine when I first bought it but I didn't because my other two Janomes have been so trustworthy. If you have any videos or ideas of how to adress these issues please let me know.
