Sewing World


The real quality of a product is only decided by the service that goes with it.

When you purchase a machine from Sewing World you also get our
factory-trained service department with over 35 years experience.


Whether you sew just a little bit or all of the time, it is important to treat your machine well! Proper care will ensure that you and your machine can have a long-lasting and healthy relationship. Below are some general guidelines that can be applied to most machines.

Smile Before you begin a project make sure that you are using the correct bobbin for your machine. There are generic items on the market that will give you problems. We recommend using only Janome bobbins in Janome machines.

Smile Ever wondered how often you should change the needle? Don't wait until it breaks! Change your needle after every eight hours of sewing or if it makes a ticking or thumping noise. Also make sure that you are sewing with the proper needle for the job. There are many needles available for different types of sewing. If you're not sure about which needle to use,

Smile After you have completed a project it is a good idea to spend a few minutes cleaning out your machine. Dust out the areas you can access and apply a dab of oil. Don't ever use canned air because it only spreads lint and foreign matter into the inner workings of the machine, and contains moisture which can lead to internal parts rusting.

Smile Although it may seem obvious, make sure to read your owner's manual. The more you know about your machine, the better you can help it perform.

Smile Finally, when you receive your annual maintenance reminder, please bring the machine into the store. Our highly-experienced factory-trained technicians can spot any potential problems and will give your machine a thorough cleaning and tune-up. By taking excellent care of your machine, it will serve you well for many years to come.

Happy Sewing!
