I thought it would be a good idea to start a thread specifically for the Janome Coverpro CoverStitch Machines CP900 & CP1000, as there have been many helpful details mentioned re these machines...however, it is scattered throughout several threads and the information is difficult to locate.

And, here's a link to photos related to the hemming guide. I think it's type 1 if I remember right:

How to Pivot around Corners

from artfulsage page 161
Date: 6/20/07 5:57 PM
I asked how to do outside corners with the CoverPro 1000 and received some good ideas. I also e-mail Janome education with the question and thought I would post their answer for every one.
Here it is:
You must remember that the coverstitch is created with two or three
needles so a perfect 90 degree pivot at corners will not be possible.
But with planning and patience a corner can be achieved in this manner:
Stop slightly ahead of the corner and manually turn the hand wheel until
the needles are in the lowest position. You will hear a slight "tick"
when the needles are in the lowest position. Lift the presser foot and
turn the fabric slightly in the direction you need to achieve either an
inside or outside corner. Manually turn the hand wheel until the needles
have made one stitch and are again in the lowest position. Lift the
presser foot and turn the fabric slightly in the needed direction.
Continue on for as many stitches as it takes to turn the corner. When
you have made the turn start the machine and sew as usual.

Did you know the Elna 434 is the same machine as the Janome 1000CP? Head to this link and you'll see the machine as well as clickable links for information about each accessory and each accessory has it's own instructional PDF file! Awesome huh?

Elna 434 Coverstitch - same as the CP1000 - see .pdf instructions for using the Coverstitch attachments at this link

The Elna 434 seems to be the same machine as the CP1000 and the Nina CP1000.
I am not able to change the title of this thread to include the Elna 434, but Elna owners or prospective owners, please feel free to join in too. Below is a message posted from Stephanie on page 285 re the Elna 434.

Thank you very much for your response about the extension table, Vonne. The Elna 434 extension table is exactly the same as the Janome CP1000 table. I have bought one.

I have received my Nina CP1000 (it is exactly the same one as Janome CP1000) with accessories on Thursday and I have ordered the binding attachments from the guy on ebay. I love this machine.

I really want to thank you all from the bottom of my heart for this forum. I read all of the info on this forum before I have ordered the machine.

Enjoy your sewing.
Stephanie

I forgot to add a link for a photo of the machines.

This is the best link I can find as the Janome link will only bring up the home page.

Peggy, this does look good on the cost
I also noticed on the photo of the binder, that the special foot is included in the package.
I have bought two accessories so far and the most expensive was $55AU .. that was for the hem guide attachment. I am hoping the binder is about the same price

Hi Vonne, great idea, as I have been going all over the place on the site looking for things. Worst is when you know you read something and have to look about 10 places before you find it, so this will be a great help.
Question, does anyone have any problems with the stitches unravelling? This has just started happening to me after I finish my hem I draw the top threads through to the underside and when I go to tie them off they start to unravel. It is driving me crazy.

Fionah, when you pull the threads to the underside, it should lock them. Are you using the technique in Debbie Cook's excellent tutorial?
Click on her profile to find her webpage.

I always knot them as well..just in case

Hi Vonne

Yes, that is how I am doing it, you posted the link to me a couple of weeks ago when I had a problem and it all went well until just the last couple of seams I did. Do you think it could have anything to do with the threading. The seams are quite normal looking but it just doesnt seem to be locking them in properly.

Ah, fiona, I was barking up the wrong tree
It does sound like your threads aren't feeding thru evenly.
Check the threading, and also how the thread feeds off the reels.
I had a similar problem recently and I discovered that the type of reel I was using, did not like having a thread cap on it I took the thread cap off and it worked fine.
Basically, the threads have to feed thru very evenly to get good stitching. Check the reels, how the threads feed off them and tensions until you discover their quirkiness.

And here's the link to the USA site:

Janome CoverPro

And here's a link to another page on their site, that lists all the accessories available:

Well, this is the third time I'm trying to add a link to the other CoverPro page at the Janome site, but if you'll go to:
www.janome.com
then use the drop-down menu for Machines, click on the CoverPro1000, you can see a list of accessories. I didn't know the binder was available over here. Thanks for starting this thread, Vonnevo!
