The Janome CLX 301 Sewing Machine
The Janome Model CXL301 gives you computerised sewing with 30 pre-programmed stitches, including 6 different fully automatic buttonholes. The LCD display makes it easy to see which stitch you’ve chosen as well as the stitch width and length, which are fully adjustable.
A jam-proof, magnetic, top-loading, full rotary hook system eliminates the need for a removable bobbin case. The hook cover plate opens at the touch of a button, and the extra needle penetration power of the CXL301 lets you sew across heavier fabrics & multiple layers. The extension table also detaches for free-arm sewing. This machine also feature a seven piece feed mechanism, a drop feed facility, automatic needle threader, a slide speed control and comes complete with a soft cover.
