  • GREAT Sewing Machine!

    This Janome DC1050 is probably a 'middle of the line' sewing machine. Fabulous features, quiet, runs like a top, and sews beautifully. All the features I need for my sewing and design business.

    • How did the image on site compare with the actual product? Pretty darn good
    • How accurate was the on site description of the product? Excellent
    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. Quality? Come on - it's JAPANESE!
  • I love this machine!

    I love this sewing machine! I'm a novice sewer, but I wanted a machine I could grow with. This machine was recommended to me by the local sewing shop. When I couldn't find it in a store in town, I bought it here. It's really awesome. My favorite feature is the ability to control the speed of the foot pedal with a sliding button. It makes it less important how much pressure I put on the pedal. I also love the needle "up/down" button so that I don't have to worry about turning the wheel the wrong way. I've only sewed a few things -- bunting pennants for my daughter's 1st birthday and envelope pillow covers -- but I can't wait to do more.

    • How did the image on site compare with the actual product? It was the same
    • How accurate was the on site description of the product? Accurate
    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. Wonderful!
  • Good machine

    The only thing I have found lacking on this machine is it doesn't let you position the needle.

  • Exactly what it said it was.

    This machine was bought as a gift for a person with limited sewing experience. The person has not stopped sewing since the machine arrived.

    I've had this machine for over a year, and I must admit it was a step up from my old machine. I was drawn to the price and the fact that it was computerized. I didn't use many of the decorative stitches, mostly stuck with straight and zig zag. An OK machine overall. My two biggest gripes are: Sometimes while sewing, the machine would beep 3 times quickly and stop. The foot pedal would suddenly stop working. I tried to trouble shoot in the manual provided but the closest resolution was changing out the needle, which I did quite often, but it never really seemed to help. This became very annoying especially when I was plugging away on a project. Secondly, about 2 weeks ago the thread started bunching up around the bobbin case. I checked the bobbin case and there was a small crack in the plastic, causing the upper thread to catch. I have looked EVERYWHERE online and locally, even emailed Janome to see if I can find a replacement bobbin case, but I have been unable to find one for this model DC1050. It seems that parts are readily available for other Janome models, just not this one. Luckily, one of my friends found an old Singer sewing machine for 25 cents at a local high school rummage sale. I'll be using that until I can find a new bobbin case, otherwise I will have to buy a whole new machine.

  • Janome disappointment

    I have owned many Janome machines and have ordered them from Overstock before but I was really disappointed in this machine. The needle threader /presser foot assembly was made with plastic not metal like my other machines. The bobbin winder is plastic also, not metal. I wound a bobbin and threaded the machine and started sewing. Because the presser foot assembly is plastic, when I changed feet to a janome 1/4" foot, (not provided), the foot would not lay flat on the sewing bed and therefore I couldn't use it. The machine had a cheap machine sound when it ran it and I ended up returning the machine to Overstock and Overstock was fantastic in handling the return. This Janome simply didn't live up to it's Janome name that I know. However, the stitch quality when running it with the A foot was good. It is a lower priced Janome. The higher priced models would make for a happier seamstress.

  • Very please with machine. Pretty stitches.

    Bought the machine for a beginning sewer. Was pleased with the quality of stitching, ease of use, and variety of stitches available.

  • Janome DC1050

    Nice small machine for classes, light weight, easily transportable. I wouldn't care for it as my primary sewing machine but it has a lot of features for the price.

Why does the fabric not pull thru. The pressure foot is down but it sews in place and does not move. idc33 on Jul 26, 2014

Answer This Question

Hello idc33, this machine has the ability to control the speed of the foot pedal with a sliding button. It makes it less important how much pressure is put on the pedal. Thank you for shopping with us! overstockcustomercare1 on Aug 5, 2014
idc33: The most likely answer: On the back side of the "free arm" of your DC1050 is a horizontal slider which drops the feed dogs (the spiky metal lines that come up through the grooves in the needle plate just behind where you insert your bobbin). The feed dogs are what pulls the fabric through. To re-engage the feed dogs, you'll first need to access the slider by removing the extension plate/accessory storage tray on your machine by sliding it to the left away from the rest of the machine. What remains after you remove the extension/tray is called the free arm. On the back side of the free arm you'll see the slider. Pull it to the right (assuming you are facing the back side of the machine). You should hear a click. After that, you'll need to turn the handwheel (located on the top of the right side of the machine - and always turn it towards you, never away) for at least one complete rotation. As you are turning it, look in the grooves in the needle plate, and you should see the feed dogs rise out of them again. If you have not disengaged the feed dogs, your machine is broken and needs to be serviced. The foot pedal is pressure-sensitive, but the behavior you are describing has nothing to do with how much pressure is being put on the foot pedal. sew.what on Nov 8, 2014

Can this machine handle denim, as in hemming jeans? shaybk1 on Aug 22, 2013
Subscribe to Answers
Answer This Question

Hello shaybk1, The Janome DC1050 can hem jeans. The sewist would need to increase the stitch length, use a size 16 denim needle, and sew slowly. To help with sewing across the flat felled seam we recommend using a Hump Jumper or Jean-a-ma-jig. Thank you for shopping with us. overstockcustomercare1 on Aug 28, 2013

Answer This Question

Janome DC1050 sewing machine has the features you need to complete any project: home decor, garment sewing, scrapbooking, or quilting. Fifty stitches, including three automatic one step buttonholes, provide a large variety for your diverse sewing needs. The Janome DC1050 also includes all of the features you expect only from a high end Janome Decor machine, allowing you to sew with precision and confidence. With features like memorized needle up/down, speed control slide, backlit lcd screen with fast navigation, start/stop button and more you would expect thw Janome DC 1050 to be priced much higher. Even at this low price it still is the same Janome high quality precision machine you have to come to expect. Thank you for your question.
