Each year, Janome comes out with a special limited edition sewing machine model with your favorite features, tons of great decorative stitches, and in a cool color combo to brighten your sewing space. Last month, at the industry’s largest trade show in Las Vegas, Janome America debuted this year’s model: the DC2015. A striking red and white computerized model with power, precision, and several new standard features. We took a quick tour, and we’re more than ready to find the DC2015 a permanent home in our Sew4Home studios.
Love the look
The DC2015 colors are bright Janome red against white, and the accents are applied in a sleek, modern style. We especially like how easy it is to read the white stitch chart against the sharp red background.
A hard cover is included, which makes it easy to protect the DC2015 when not in use as well as to bring it along to classes and other events.
Always something new
One of the things we look forward to when a new Janome model arrives, are the enhancements we know we’ll find. Features that debut on Janome’s top-of-the-line machine often find their way to other models. We think it’s great how Janome engineers work to find innovative ways to incorporate ease-of-use elements for everyone to experience.
A refinement we spotted immediately on the Janome DC2015 was the larger LED screen, which is quick and easy to control with the touch-ring. Use one finger to click through the stitch selections and adjust length and width.
An excellent setting update is how the needle up/down control is now set with needle-down as the default. If you’re a regular Sew4Home visitor, you know we’re continually reminding you to stop with your needle in the down position to maneuver curves or other tight spaces. The DC2015 remembers for you!
All the favorites are there as well
We call them the “go-to features,” the built-in favorites we rely on day-in and day-out. They’re all in the DC2015, including: a top-loading, full rotary hook bobbin; built-in needle threader; locking stitch button; easy bobbin winder; snap-on presser feet; and a start/stop button.
There’s a convenient storage drawer at the front that holds all the standard accessories.
Slide it off, and you’re ready for free-arm sewing.
Setting up for double-needle sewing is super easy, and the secondary spool pin is standard.
Stitches, stitches, and more stitches
There are 60 built-in stitches and six one-step buttonholes. And with the stitch chart right on the front of the machine, the choices are always top-of-mind when you’re sewing.
As its name implies, the DC2015 is produced in a limited run for this year, so you’ll want to visit your Janome dealer as soon as possible for a “test stitch.”
This model would be great for anyone starting out or if you’re looking for an all-around workhorse of a machine to add to your sewing space.
Thanks, Janome America, for letting us take the DC2015 for a spin!
