Janome CoverPro900CPX Cover Hem Machine Review

Janome CoverPro 900CPX Cover Hem machine is ideal for those who are looking for a sewing machine that can provide professional looking hems. It’s an easy-to-use machine. Thanks to its thread guide that you can access by simply removing the machine’s storage compartment. Some of its owners did complain of it being difficult to use at first. But, once they’ve discovered the color-threaded guide and master it, using this machine became an uncomplicated machine for them.

Value for their money

The majority of its users said that it offers more value for their money because of its useful features and great price. They also praised the machine’s no tension issue. This is one of the greatest fears of those who are still starting to use this type of machine. They thought that they’d encounter lost or inconsistent tensions. But they didn’t find one when using this model.

Easy to use through its instructional video

Although this machine is easy-to-use, as we’ve previously mentioned, there’s still a learning curve, just like any other machines. It takes time to help you get the hang of using it. Hence, it’s highly recommended that you watch its included instructional video to help you out. As soon as you get used to its features, you’ll find it easy to use and realize that it’s a highly responsive machine with great tension knobs and controls.

Convert into free arm

One of the best things about Janome CoverPro 900CPX is that you can convert it into free arm. This is especially useful when you’re hemming small areas.

The Seam Tightening System (STS) of this machine can give your project nice-to-look-at stitches as they can be flat, tight or sturdy, regardless of the type of fabric you’re using.

The maximum double-needle cover stitch can provide you with 5mm width. With its powerful motor, it can deliver a speed of 1,000 stitches a minute.

Looks good

The nice thing about this machine is that the stitches will always come out in a way that you wish them to be. Some even said that the stitches are almost the same as the ones they saw on their bought items.

As mentioned earlier, this machine is easy to set up and use. Even though you don’t have previous experience working with this type of machine, you’ll still be able to come up with a professional looking finished product. Of course, there will still be trial and errors along the way. But, once you get used to it, you’ll be fine.

Compared with other cover hem machines, this model operates smoothly and quietly.


Despite its many adorable features, this model comes with some limitations. For instance, this model tends to skip stitches. This is especially true when you’re handling thick cross seams. Then again, this happens to any type of machines in this category. To fix it, you just need a hem tape.

Another complaint is that it doesn’t have narrow hems. This feature is especially beneficial when handling lightweight fabrics.


Despite its limitations, we can still recommend this model. It’s worth buying. It can handle different huge workloads and provide you with great quality finished products.
